Norrøna /29 Viking Cut Out Belt

  • Q & A

This is a WIDE belt

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I returned the product. That is not to say it is a bad product and it is definitely a bold look.
So why the return? Width. I double checked: Did not see anything in the tech-specs to indicate the width of this belt. It is just under 1 7/8" wide/46mm. Could double as a weight lifting belt in a pinch. For context, it barely fits through the loops in standard issue jeans.

Nice belt

    Overall I really like this belt. The Viking on the buckle is a nice touch. The only real issue I can see with this belt is that it is really thick. It doesn't fit in any of my jeans belt loops, but it does fit in the loops of my shorts. Just something to watch out for.

    Whats not to love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This belt is pretty cool, the detail of the viking makes for a pretty nice buckle. The detailed indenting adds a nice texture to the belt. Only problem I have with some of Norrona belts including this one is the belts are too wide for most pants I own, because I can't fit it through the belt loops. Fortunately I have a couple that I can wear with this belt just fine so I can over look this. Aside from that, the leather is a soft treated leather so the belt is not really rigid and has some nice flex. All in all this belt is tops aside from my 1 con.

    Sizing

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    To give everyone an idea, here is my measurements:



    Height: 6'0''

    Weight: 170 lbs

    My actual waist size: 33"

    My pant waist size: 31"



    Belt Size Ordered: Small (31.5 - 33.0 Inches)



    Based on my measurements and how the sizing chart is on Norrona's website, I'd say these numbers are your actual waist measurements not your pant measurement.



    I also was not a fan of the "bulk" or build up of material when the belt is on. Since I was at the very last hole I was actually having a very hard time with the closure since the sculpted hair (on the belt buckle) actually makes it hard to use the closure on the largest setting.



    Don't get me wrong, this is a nice belt, but just not for me since I'm at the upper end of the size range for the small but on the far bottom end of a size medium (last thing I want is 5-7 inches of belt hanging out and me needing to put a new hole in the belt to work for me).



    Nice craftsmanship, but the product just doesn't work for my waist size.

    I wore the medium (95 cm) for a year and it stretches a little. Still looks great - nothing unexpected as all leather belts stretch. I'm on the site again now thinking about getting a small (85 cm) and allowing for the stretch. I'm about the same measurements as Jared, but 6'2 and 190 lbs.

    SIZING

      The sizing for this belt is as follows:



      Small: 31.5 - 33.0 inch



      Medium: 34.0-36.5 inch



      Large: 37.5-38.5 inch

      Mhi,
