I bought this one at a local Walmart. I normally lose my belts since I move so much and have owned 3 of these before. Never have I seen gym equipment that you cannot try before you buy like this one. I did not think anything of it. When I opened the package I used to get a nice leather scent. This time I got a cardboard like smell. I put the belt on and I get residue all over my clothes. I then looked closely and realized this belt is made of what looked like compressed cardboard in the middle and it is surrounded by fake leather outside and possibly a thin layer of real leather inside. I have not used it yet but I highly dount that the compressed cardboard will withstand for any length of time in a very sweaty gym environment. It will probably work better as a sweat sponge than back support while doing barbell rows, deadlifts and squats. I am not sure but the higher priced version which was not at the store is around $17 dollars and might be the "real" one, which you should spend the extra 3-4 dollars on for genuine equipment.
I absolutely love this belt. Great back support. A must have when squatting or dead lifting
Wear it not only for lifting weights, but also for working around the house. Saves my back a lot of pain. Made with very strong leather.
The gold weight belt is well made, it should last for a lifetime.
I use it everytime I workout....
yes what i need for lifting ,good belt i will recommend
Not a bad belt for the price. My only complaint is that the leather appears to be of a cheap material and I don't know how it will hold up over time. I've used some leather care on it and hopefully it will prolong the life. Still, it's cheap and works.
I purchased to replace my Valeo Leather Belt. Great price. IT DOES THE JOB. Feels cheaper made than my old belt.
Great price great product.
I wear a tshirt between belt and skin under my clothing. This keeps my back in alignment !
very heavy-duty, padded, & well made.
Feel - 8/10 It feels a little cheaper than some of the other more expensive belts I have used in the past. With a little oil and TLC you can make the material feel better and last longer. The leather is a little stiff and doesn't form well at first, but once you break it in it's not that bad.
Appearance - 9/10 Looks pretty sharp overall. This is a tapered belt so its wider at the back. Personally I really like the tapered design since it allows you to wear the belt higher without killing your ribcage.
Support - 10/10 Overall it adds really nice back support for doing heavy compound lifts. I definitely recommend using a good belt if you're lifting heavy on squats and deadlifts as the back support is completely invaluable. This belt does really good job providing that support.
Durability - 8/10 So far it has held up really well, but I can definitely see the material degrading after extended use over time. The functionality and support of the belt probably won't degrade, but more so the aesthetics of the belt.
Overall it's a great buy for the price. When you factor in the great support overall value it's hard beat. The only thing I would have liked to have seen is an option or an extra feature that allowed for chains so you could attach weight for dips and pullups. Really great buy.
#Good Stuff!! #high quality! #loving it!!
Works fine, a bit of a problem when you bend over but that's about it really.
size runs small
