    Default Belt Sizing

    I'm right on the cusp between Medium and Large for an Inzer belt.

    33-35 is Med, 36-39 is Large. I expect to gain weight, but dont expect to have the waist size that I currently have (I'll be losing about 10% bf eventually).

    I'm inclined to go ahead and get the Medium, but my question is how flexible are these sizings? Can someone with a technically "large" waist still fit in a Medium? Alternatively, could someone with a Medium waist fit into a Large belt?

    I'd expect so, but thought I'd get a second opinion. Thanks.

    Get the large. It is always easier to drill a new hole if you need it smaller than it is to add more leather to make it bigger.

    I was in a similar situation ordering from elitefts.
    They told me to go with the medium.

    I'd send inzer an email (heard their customer service sucks) and get their opinion.

    I got the large, because I measured my waist and it was 36.5.

    I figure there is a large enough margin of error either way that unless your waist is radically smaller than the belt was intended for, it should work out. Plus, as gman mentioned, I can always drill a new hole if need be.

    I went old fashioned and just called them to ask. However, the "sales associate" really did not know much about their products, and she just referred me to the web page. The second time I called, the guy was a little more knowledgeable, very pleasant and professional.

    Same here, and I went with the medium. You want to make sure you can get it tight enough.

    Default Drill holes

    I was wondering if drilling my own extra holes would do anything to damage the belt? I have been waiting for over a month for my retro series belt, and it is too large, I can't afford to wait anymore for the belt, but I also can't afford to ruin it.

    Out of curiosity, what size waist do you have?
