I've been just tying a shoe string through both sides of the buckle so that if it fails the shoe string saves me.

should have switched to the new one. My camera and flash crashed to the ground yesterday. Flash mount broke, and the CPL that was on the lens got dinged. I can repair the CPL, and I may take a stab at the 550 mount.

so if you have the new belt... use it

I have very mixed feelings when I got my spider about a month ago....

I think I got the "new" version of the belt, it look something like this:

The 1 that I saw on the web, youtube and other poster's buckle they are different from mine so I presume this must be the replacement model? This buckle is really painful...my finger got caught a few times. it looks and feel secure when u get it in but the buckling feel wasn't as smooth as other buckle like newswear, lowepro, thinktank kind.

My recent offshore hike proved that this belt and the system really does what its designed for...even though the belt looks very "used" when I got it new. Take a look at the following:

All of the new sets in the shop I went to has the same condition. I snap them when I got it home. The only thing that look solid is the spiderpro. My 1st set the pin cant even fit in and I have to go back to the shop to make a change.

Having said that, I had bike in terrain and ran in heavy downpour with a 5D2 + 100L macro IS on my waist and it didn't feel like its coming out or you need to worry that its coming out anytime. I guess my gut feel about this system was not wrong after all.:cool:
