For men, I hear countless stories in the GolfWrx forums about what type of belt is cool and why you MUST wear a belt. It's actually quite amusing if you ever get around to checking those forums out. Wearing a belt to golf is apparently the thing to do. And, if you don't, you may just be called a rookie. You can leave comment on my blog and let me know what you think...
Anyway, when it came to making my decision on the style, I chose a classic white with crystals because I thought it would match with what I wear most often. It's also very girly with the crystals, which I always like to add a bit of to my golf style. With so many options to choose from, it could range anywhere from casual sleek and toned down to something a little more fancy. Plus, some of the options even offered a buckle that opened up to reveal a ball marker! More on this later...
Men, behold, you have a lot more options to choose from! You can show off your American spirit with the Heritage series, try a pop of color with a variety of bright hues or even go pro with the PGA Pro series. In fact, three big names in golf you may recognize, Kevin Na, Jim Furyk and Jason Bohn all enjoy the stylings of Nexbelt on and off the course.

So, what is it that makes the Nexbelt so amazing? Well, hold onto your belt buckles (sorry), it's the no-holes system that they've created!
When I received my belt, the first thing I did was measure it around my waist. I simply unclipped the leather piece from the buckle then cut directly on the easy guide lines it provided to adjust the size. Then, I clipped it back in, slid the belt through the adjustable piece that has increments to perfectly adjust to your exact size and snapped it right into place. Simple as that.
It may seem like a trivial concept, but the quality of the leather and the comfort it provides by locking into place is really hard to beat. Just watch this video that shows you how to setup your Nexbelt and how to wear it.
Well, at least that was what I was looking forward to...
The idea of easily opening and closing my belt buckle all day sounded great (and not nerdy at all) until I showed up to the first tee box and discovered that my husband and I had been paired with a couple of our friends unexpectedly and most certainly unplanned. It was actually probably one of the coolest things that has ever happened randomly, but as it turns out, my belt buckle ball marker actually felt a bit goofy.
I got used to it though... And, as it turns out I LOVE it. I lose too many ball markers and fuddle around in my pockets too much to not enjoy and be sold completely on this function of the belt! In fact, I wish I could wear it every time I golf, but not all skirts and shorts allow it.
All in all, I think Nexbelt really created something fantastic here. If you haven't already tried it, give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.
