Not sure what the commando used to be, but I think a few will say tiderunner. I started using one this year and I like it. Especially like how I can adjust it to what I'm wearing that day. Sometimes I'll wear jeans and knee high boots instead of waders and it makes it easy to put on rather than the clip type you have to adjust by moving the clips. Good price too.

+1 for Tide Runner as cheap, and a belt of quality. No idea if it’s similar to the Commando. It is however less stiff as say the Gear Up belt.

I also use and love the tide runner.
 

Not sure what clip commando used but if you research law enforcement duty belts most of them use a clip style and are very well built. Plastic or a metal clip similar to Flatlander.

Trident dive belt is what I’ve used for years. $7.99 now on the inter webs.

Has plastic fold over buckle some guys don’t like but I’ve never had issue with it.

Another +1 for the Ultimate Surf Belt by Tiderunner. Simple and well-built design. Runs you around 55 dollars with 10 dollar shipping.

In the summer, when it’s hot out and I’m wearing shorts and a T-shirt, I like the lighter Cressi dive belt as well.  In the spring and fall when I’m geared up with waders and a surf top, I like a stiffer belt, like a Tiderunner.

I used a LEO belt last year with a similar locking buckle as the commando I saw a picture of from a past WTS. It was good, but being a plastic buckle the lock started to fail and just didn't give the security I wanted. If only using on the beach and not having a chance to drop in the water the plastic buckle would be ok. The other thing is how the belt hugs you. The ones with a plastic buckle more or less sit on your hips, ones like tiderunner and rockhopper snug tight to your waist. You can grab a cheap LEO with that commando style buckle for like $20.

Tiderunner belt served its purpose for many seasons but upgraded to a zbelt this season and won’t look back 

The Z looks really bulky.  Is it just pics that make it seem that way?
