I`ve bought a pair of Haglofs Shale trousers but they don`t come with a belt.
I`ve had the Haglofs Shake belt recommended to me which looks good but is £30. Is there anybody who can recommend one that holds tight before I go for the Shake belt?
How much? You could just make one. 1-2m of webbing, a buckle and maybe 5mins of sewing depending on the buckle. Cost around £1-2 depending.
what others say -why pay silly money?
I have used these £3 for 2 in my local hardware shop for work/walking trousers for a few years now - cut off the excess - they do the job as well as any other belts I have,( better than some in fact - as they don't absorb water and are very light) and I just leave them on the trousers when they go through the wash (buckle connected).

Why on earth anyone would even consider paying £30 for a belt is beyond me.
& folk who paid that or more for a handcrafted belt & buckle probably don't care.
Coincendently I had a look around a few outdoor shops last weekend & none sold belts on their own so I'll likely be making my own this weekend as trousers are getting looser.

Yeah, I was about to suggest baler twine. Alan has met me so he'll know how smartly I dress on the hill
Seriously, nip into any high street charity shop and you'll find belts for a quid or two. As there are usually several charity shops in any town, you should be able topick one up very easily.
Or, of course, buy a branded one for £30. But that's thirty quid less to spend down the pub.
Fjallraven do a pretty good one here.......
Only £17.50 plus P&P. I have two of them a brown and a black and it has your quick release buckle.
The Rohan bags belt - here - is just a basic nylon thing with buckles as above but precut/sewn etc for the lazy and/or clumsy and only 7 pounds
With wearing merino so much I've got an adversion to belts with big metal buckles.....
