I ran that belt for a long time, and it did a great job. For a $35 belt, it's a good deal. I was happy with it, but once I got a more high-end belt, I realized the shortcomings of that particular belt for training/tactical use.
It's sort of a beginner's belt, and belts like the ARES and HSGI belts are more "advanced" by their design and capability. With a training/carry belt made of nylon, it's a good idea to get one that's stiffer. I also highly recommend getting one with a COBRA buckle, since they're faster. If you ever have to drop trou and you have gear attached to your belt, standard buckles tend to be problematic if you have your gear/pouches further forward on your belt.

You can't go wrong either way though. It's all about your personal preference.
