Been on the road and so glad I checked in on Massdrop - Mission Belts are the only ones I wear. Great combo of Leather and notched steps for easy on and off make these easy for a quick tighten or loosen on long flights. I have two team buckles, the bronze and matte black and the only problem is the finish on the matte black is not durable. Otherwise Mission Belts are 100/100

Thank you for your comment and I am confused and a bit offended by a post that potentially links a positive mission with a message of heinous crimes. Moderators please consider deleting due to discussion forum rules.

not sure if you noticed the symbol on the belt is the same as the symbol from the wiki page. On a side note I'm an Orthodox rabbinical student.

Whereas I understand and respect your position, bringing religion or politics into a technology forum has no place and, in my opinion, you should be proactive and delete your post before others read and may draw incorrect conclusions from a company that donates to their community. If we are comparing backgrounds, I am of a different religion, have many Jewish friends and was a shabbos goy for my neighbors when I lived in Brooklyn.

I am not going to permit your consistent false accusations of a company that has done so much! Moderators, please help! "The Orem, Utah-based company has lent $1.5 million, or 60,000 micro-loans, to small business owners around the world, the company announced Monday. The startup partnered with Kiva, a nonprofit that lets people lend money to low-income entrepreneurs in developing countries, when it launched in 2012." Mission Belt does a great job with global contributions; in my opinion, it is inconsequential that the belt logo relates to something in aviation.

You're the only one taking my link and what I have said in this way, I have not made any "accusations". In this conversation all I have stated and shown is that their logo was originally created for a Nazi war plane, nothing else. In this conversation between you and I, I have not once said anything negative about the Mission Belt company. Per your last comment, you're accusing me of "false accusations". Please quote me where I directly responded to you with said "false accusations". I don't respect your opinion of thinking that "it is inconsequential that the belt logo relates to something in aviation". Why? 1. The logo is directly and distinctly associated with a Nazi death machine. 2. Here's some food for thought, If you were to ask the Jews who lived or died or the Americans who fought and lived or died, what do you think they would say?
Side note: Let me make this perfectly clear, in no way am I saying that the Mission Belt company is evil/bad/anti-Semitic or associated in any way on purpose with Nazi anything. Their loans and non-profit activities are wonderful mitzvah.
