Enough has been made of the fact that the size and symbol are not as they are in the game. I notice that those ratings are from people who have not purchased the item. I have the entire costume and recently wore it for a number of days at Dragon*Con. The belt is smaller than the game for a good reason - a video game character's outfit does not need to be practical. In real life, you need to bend at the abdomen, and having a big hunk of leather there is not practical. The belt and baldric are both attractive, fit well, and are well-made. The three stars comes from a condition that permeates the entire series - the leather thongs and rivets used for attachments are worthless. In fact the ties on my belt consisted of shoe-strings on one side and leather thongs on the other. (The thongs are then tied to the strings in the back.) All the thongs on this entire outfit, most appearing on this accessory, broke almost immediately. The thongs used to tie the belt together broke multiple times. The screw rivets need to be checked multiple times a day or you will lose them. (I lost one holding the sword-breaker sheath.) The rivet holding the sword sheath broke at the end of the wearing, meaning I have to re-rivet it. Another issue is that it is impossible to adjust the sword-breaker sheath in a way that it will remain vertical enough so the dagger will not tumble out. I added a leather thong on the base of the sheath to wrap around my thigh, and I tied the dagger into the sheath for insurance. It is a nice product; however, the manufacturer should spend a few pennies more for good quality leather thongs and rivets for the attachment points.
