The Last Belt Dad Ever Needs

I know the last time (many, many years ago) when I heard dad and belt in the same sentence, it never turned out very well for me. Fortunately, we’re not talking about the ways we were disciplined when we were kids here. Shannon, my beautiful wife (The Mommy-Files) was recently contacted by Kore Essentials who said they had a completely new design in belts that would change everything. I can honestly say that when she first told me that I would be receiving a belt to check out, I probably wasn’t as excited as I should have been. 


As a normal dad, that is in no way offended by the description #dadbod and with a waistline that fluctuates like the stock market; I am often confronted with the issue of the traditional belt. You see it all comes down to those belt holes, you know the ones that were designed by some evil person, that guy with perfect six pack abs that thought “eh, a half inch won’t make any difference.” Yeah tell that to my wife or any other woman out there, that half inch goes a long way! lol… 


Well despite my initial lack of enthusiasm and disregard, my life will be forever changed by this amazing belt. I often travel for work, which means regular suits and business attire are a requirement. This also had meant in the past choosing a belt that would fit or frantically trying to create the “makeshift hole” between the other holes, or the sad sad new hole we’ll just call the “dad enjoys barbecue, pizza, and beer hole,” with the nearest key, butter knife, teeth or whatever you could find. I know you have all been there, that is of course unless you are that evil guy from earlier.


So the thing so amazing and different about this belt is “It always fits!” I can’t stress this enough – it really is awesome! It has a track system on the belt itself, and a ratcheting system built into the buckle, meaning when you insert the belt into the buckle you can adjust it to any comfort level. This means even when you take those clients out to that ridiculous steak dinner, and you are dying because your gut has grown a baby in the matter of two hours, you just reach down, press a button and presto – immediate relief!


No more worrying about a couple inches here or there and I can honestly say that I will never buy another type of belt. If you are looking for a lasting gift or just something that dad will completely appreciate, check out Kore Essentials and pick up one of these amazing belts that come in several buckle options as well as leather colors. This seriously is the last belt dad will ever need.

Have you ever tried the Kore Essentials Belt? What do you like about it?
