Yes the Impact belts have a horizontal webbing. I was told the reason for this is it makes for a stronger belt. The belt webbing will not rip like what happend to Dale Sr, and it helps with the belts not coming loose as the webbing is suppost to grab the adjuster better. The only thing I have noticed about the Impact belts is that they have been hard to loosen up once they get full of silt and then get wet. Its usually not a problem until I needed to get out a change a tire one night and then trying to loosen the belts so I could get back in the seat was a problem. But thats the only thing and it has only happned twice maybe? At least I knew they were not coming off!
Third that, you can't beat Fred and Dave's service.Second that!
