I have had nothing but bad luck with the ForEverlast brand. I owned two of them and they both fell apart within a year where the stitching came undone. I bought a Fish and Hunt and so far have not had any durability issues.
I use to use a weight lifting belt. Many years before it wore out. Tried a couple different brands and found the fishnhunt which works best for me. I wonder how the old oldtimers felt after a long day wading and no belt for support! Makes my back hurt just to think about it.
