track belts or ratchet belt comparison. Trakline, Mission belt, and Slide belt with no holes. Which ratchet belt is the best

As you know, most traditional men's belts use holes for sizing. Each hole is typically spaced an inch, or more apart and by inserting the buckle post you secure the belt in position.  But when you consider the fact that your waist is constantly in flux - in and out - as you work, walk, eat sleep and play - an inch is a lot. We've been trained since childhood to find the belt hole and deal with it. We never gave it a second thought - until now... 

Trakline, Mission belt and Slide belt the best ratchet belts on the market for men. Best track belts.

Enter the track belt (aka; ratchet belt, automatic belt, no-holes belt, or hole-less belt) - a belt with a simple track system instead of holes. This new fangled track is sewn into the back of the leather belt and provides the wearer with 30-40 notches to adjust with. These small notches are spaced just 1/4" apart and the buckle (using a spring or magnet mechanism) engages this track to keep the belt in place and allow for small 1/4" adjustments - in or out. Now you can zip your track belt to your precise waist size in seconds and create an amazing fit. The track is almost indestructible. It may sound strange, or tough to envision - but this simple innovation is very liberating. Suddenly your belt fits exactly like it should - perfectly - every time you put it on. 

Every week we get dozens of guys telling us these are the "best-fitting, most comfortable belts they've ever worn".
