Performance: If you're looking for a weight belt that can keep up with VERY heavy-duty training (power or Olympic lifting), this is the belt for you. Built from high-grade 3/8" thick leather, the belt is built to take a beating. You'll find that it can handle years of regular use without losing its stiffness or excellent support.
The belt is 4" wide, offering excellent lumbar support without preventing you from moving easily. You'll find that it provides solid resistance for your back and core when you perform deadlifts, squats, and other lower body exercises.
On the downside, the belt can be challenging to put on at first. The double prong closure system is highly secure, but the leather is stiff for the first few weeks of use. However, as you use it, it will be easier to slip on.
Price: The average man (Large size) will pay $50 for this belt—a higher price than you'd expect, but well worth it for such a long-lasting piece of gear. Once you own this bad boy, you won't need to buy another weight lifting belt for at least another decade.
