Nexbelt Golf Review – The Belt With No Holes
Since I started this website I have been trying to up my golfing fashion game. In this article I’d like to highlight a company making unique, functional, and wonderful looking belts. They’re called Nexbelt.
I’ve been wearing their golf belt for the last 6 months, and it’s an entirely original accessory for a number of reasons.
You might be thinking to yourself, “what could be original about a belt?”
I wouldn’t blame you, especially coming from someone who owns a whopping total of 3 belts (yes, I know it’s pathetic). Let’s take a look at what makes Nextbelt different from the rest.
Overall, there are three main reasons why I’ve become a fan of this belt.

The biggest complaint about any belt I have purchased in my lifetime is that they don’t fit properly. The fit either doesn’t match up to the waist size you purchase, or you might be in between notches based on the clothing your wearing (not to mention the variability of your waist size).
Nexbelt solves these issues pretty easily with a design that is different from most belts. There are no sizes when you purchase any of their products. There are no holes either.
That’s because the Nextbelt has a unique sizing system. When you first purchase the belt you cut it to your own size, and it works like a charm.
The Go-In Tex golf belt I have also has another unique feature. It ratchets.
So no matter what pants or shorts I am wearing, or if I maybe lost or gained several pounds, I can get the belt to the exact fit I need each time.
This is the most important feature of the belt for me personally.
It Looks Nice
While I’m not a belt aficionado, I know quality when I see it.
This is a nice looking belt, and when you see it in person you can tell that it’s made from high-quality material.
I went with the black version, but there are multiple options available on their site (not all of them ratchet though like this particular one).
The last little surprise that the Go-In Tex from Nexbelt packs is that the belt buckle itself is a little storage facility for a divot tool and a ball marker.
For those of you who constantly loose both of these tools that you need on the green, it’s a great and easy way to store them and get access to them quickly.
At first it took a little time for me to remember that these tools were actually inside the belt, and for a few rounds I would end up putting them in my pockets. Now I’m used to it, and it’s become a nice convenience that prevents me from misplacing these items (which I typically do after the round is over).
Overall, this is a great belt that I love because of its functionality and looks. You can purchase the Go-In Tex belt ($64.99), and a number of other belts on the Nexbelt website here.
I have a Nexbelt. Bought it in my pro shop because I wanted a golf-only belt. It’s nice. Let’s not go nutty. My take this is an “innovation” in need of a problem. Once you wear it a few times you suddenly realize it’s different but not so much better than a normal belt. Do you even think about the millisecond it takes to fasten your current belt? There is one benefit that doesn’t affect me at all. If you have a frequently changing waistline size you don’t have to think much about the size of the belt or where the holes are. That may be worth it if the changes aren’t too extreme. By the way, it’s possible to cut the belt wrong when you are setting it up (yes, some assembly required) and then what?. As for the ball marker bit? I’m not paying a premium for that. Wait til your buddies roll their eyes as you pop open your belt to get a ball marker. My magnetic marker fits wonderfully on the back of my glove. BTW, be aware that not every Nexbelt has the hidden ball marker compartment so check your chosen belt’s features before you take it home and cut it to size.
Finally, the buckle mechanism is a bit bulky looking–something that is not apparent from head-on photo shots. All in all it’s fine as my golf belt but if you like a traditional belt don’t base your choice on ease of use or the idea that you’ve got to have some advanced belt technology.
Now on to the article about breaking 90 🙂
You can buy basically the same thing at Walgreens in their, “as seen on TV” area for $19.95! So, if you’re into this type of belt check them out and save yourself $45.
