I do not have the answer, but based on some of the reviews on Costco's site, it is a lesser grade, maybe one step up from bonded.

An excerpt from one:
Quote :
The star rating is difficult to award because I have some serious doubts as to the material used in this belt. The material is stated to be "premium leather." The price is absolutely unbeatable if the belt is really genuine leather, but not good at all if it is actually bonded leather.

Unfortunately, the current state of the consumer protection laws allows "bonded leather" to be sold as "leather." Bonded leather is a plastic that has had ground up leather added while the plastic is in its liquid state. It's similar to the difference between real lumber versus particle board. Bonded leather looks and smells like real leather, but doesn't hold up very well when used as a belt.

One reason for my concern is the appearance of the side that isn't seen when worn. The visible side is very attractive, but the inside looks and feels like plastic to me in my personal and honest opinion.

Another concern comes from comparing this product to the products that are sold directly by Levi's. The manufacturer's style number for the Costco belt is 1049234, whereas all of the leather belts from Levi's have style numbers that are nine digits long and begin with 77. All of the Levi's belts make a big deal of saying that they are made from "100% Full Grain Leather," which decisively commits the manufacturer to using real leather. It seems odd that the Levi's packaging for the Costco belt leaves the subject ambiguous instead of similarly stressing the use of 100% full grain leather.
