Default Gates VS Continental timing belt.

I got a timing belt kit for my 960. Whole kit, belt, INA tensioner and idler rollers, Aisin water pump and tensioner.
Any time I buy belts I order Continental.
In the kit I ordered it was described as coming with a Continental timing belt.
What I received was a Gates belt while the rest of the kit was as listed.

So my question is the Gates belt good enough to use. I've always ordered the Continental as they are OEM.

Thanks Dave
