There’s really something to be said about the long-term value of purchasing something that’s relatively expensive. Now, it’s not financially sensible to buy something and automatically assume that it’s high quality because of the price — just look at how the brand Supreme simply slaps their sticker on something and suddenly it costs four times the price.
As a conscientious consumer, you know that it’s not necessarily the price that matters the most, but what you’re getting for that price. What’s that word that we’re looking for? Oh yeah, it’s called “value!”
Buy It For Life With A Klik Belt
Since you’re here likely shopping for the most comfortable and durable belt in the world, we can assume that you place a lot of value on...value. You identify a particular need in your life, and do some research to figure out what’s going to be the most cost-effective, long-lasting, and ultimately, the most comfortable and enjoyable solution. Who wants to buy something if it’s just going to wear out after a few uses?
The truth of the matter is that many items — countless items, really — should last you a long, long time. We hate to brag here, but we’re talking about items like a Klik Belt. Okay, maybe you saw that one coming, but with patented COBRA® buckle technology and backed by well over 2,500 reviews, we think that’s a pretty justified claim.
If you don’t have your own Klik Belt yet or you’re looking for a long-lasting, practical and stylish gift this holiday season, it’s hard to go wrong when you shop our belts online. Looking for more products that are designed to last you years and years of use? Keep reading below.
The Classic Stanley Insulated Vacuum Bottle
We had to begin with a reliable, tried-and-true item, and the choice was obvious. If you’re looking to brew some steaming hot coffee, put it in a container, throw it down a 2,000-foot cliff, climb down, and enjoy the same temperature coffee five hours later, this insulated hot (or cold) beverage bottle is the bottle for you.
You may recognize the older Stanley bottles as the “Stanley Aladdin,” as these products go back over 100 years (for good reason). They even offer a little icing on the value cake: the cap doubles as a cup. We’ve heard that the newer Stanley bottles aren’t quite as high-quality as the older, made in America ones, but Stanley still makes an incredibly durable and long-lasting product to be sure.
The Classic Jansport Backpack
Here’s another tried-and-true classic. This no-frills, straightforward backpack is essential the golden standard in cheap but surprisingly durable packs. Your average Jansport bag isn’t particularly large, and it doesn’t have numerous cleverly designed pockets like other modern bags. It’s a simple bag that hasn’t changed very much over time, and we’re convinced that’s how they’ve been able to last so many years for so many people.
Sure, you probably won’t do any hardcore mountaineering with this pack by any means, but it’ll probably get your kid through most of grade school. Given that your typical Jansport bag only requires a modest investment of about $30, that’s insanely good value when used extensively over the course of several years.
Darn Tough Wool Socks
It’s in the name. Most people tend to wear out the average pair of socks fairly quickly, often leading to the impression that socks are disposable items. People that think this way probably haven’t owned a pair of Darn Tough socks.
Their wool socks, made by the company Wigwam, are made of a moisture-wicking, breathable material known as Merino wool. For optimal care, they recommend hand washing them with a light detergent and air drying them. That’s a lot of work for a simple pair of $20 ankle socks, but with a lifetime warranty included (seriously, they’ll replace your Darn Tough socks if they tear or get any holes), they’re definitely socking the value straight to you.
A Good Cast Iron Skillet
A proper cast iron skillet — one that’s made with real cast iron and taken care of — should not only last a lifetime, but last throughout your children’s lifetime and your grandkids lifetime. Of course, with a product as simple as a cast iron pan, one would expect longevity like this.
So long as your skillet is well seasoned and wiped off after each use, it will always perform well for you.
V-MODA Headphones And Earbuds
While companies like Beats and Bose tend to enjoy most of the headphone spotlight, there are a number of really good and long-lasting brands out there: Shure, Sony, Audio Technica, and Sennheiser, just to name a few. V-MODA is another lesser-known name, and if you’re looking for a quality set of headphones that will literally last you five to ten years, it’s worth making the investment.
With music streaming services so commonplace these days, having a good pair of headphones or earbuds to concentrate at work or use during your workout is practically an essential commodity.
Klik Belts — The Most Comfortable Belt Is Also The Most Durable!
Our COBRA® buckles are engineered to withstand about 4,000 lbs of force, and though we hope that you're never subjected to that, it helps illustrate just how serious we are about making the world’s best belt. Our customers agree. Do you?
