A proper belt to a serious lifter is like cleats to football player.

In the past you only had two options: overpriced or junk. If you’re really unlucky, you bought one with both of those attributes.

Here’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve figured out how to supply you the premium stuff without the typical gimmicky overhype-and-overprice.

It really doesn’t get much better than this. Old school built-to-last forever quality with nothing to hide…

That’s why this belts tan leather layers are never hidden or disguised under edge coating or inner suede.

What you see is what you get: Super thick, premium, full grain leather without unnecessary fat suede, plastic, or other cheap “filler” materials.


First, let’s have a very quick lesson in Belts 101

Many people don’t know these things…

A proper belt provides trunk support for the lifter for years of heavy training.

It shouldn’t be too stiff or too soft, and it has to last.

You already know this.

What you might not know is, the support and feel of a belt comes entirely down to the quality and materials used in manufacturing. Typically, the leather.

The thing nobody talks about is this; high quality leather like what’s used in our belts is extremely expensive to produce. If only there was another way…

Well there is! It involves using significantly cheaper leather… and hiding it under edge coating and suede because visibly it’s a clearly different material.

But “Isn’t all leather the same?!” you ask…

The answer, of course, is no. There are several different types of leather, all with different properties and qualities.

From what I’ve seen, only a tiny fraction of all belts are made of high quality leather. It’s expensive stuff.

How can you tell?

The best way I’ve found is to simply look at the edge of the leather where the color should be tan through to the middle.

Some hide these edges by painting them, which is why our edges are unfinished and unpainted so you’ll see they’re tan throughout!

Other features:

Our belt fits the gold standard of 10cm width all the way around, front and back. No taper, just as god intended.

A simple, quick, single prong closure with a beefy seamless, 2mm thick roller buckle.

Just a single, thin, piece of suede outer covering. Thus maximizing the thickness of the supportive core leather.

Note: belts are pre-broken in but for some lifters a typical break-in period may be required before the belt is comfortable.

How do I measure properly?

It can be tricky sometimes to get the right size, but the instructions are easy to follow.

The size belt you select will be based on your belly measurement, not your waist or pant size. So keep this in mind!

You’ll want to grab yourself a soft measuring tape and measure around your belly, or the area where you’ll be wearing the belt.

Brace your abdomen as if you are lifting.

Tighten the measuring tape so it is sung, but not too tight.

Refer to the sizing guide above and pick the belt size that your measurement fits within.

TIP — Typically your measurement will be larger than your pant size. If you’re picking a size based on your pant size choose one size up.

Also, remember the belt is 4” wide around your waist and between 10-13mm thick. You can consider this for a perfect fit.

Do I need to break in the belt?

I would recommend against breaking in the belt unless you absolutely have to. This can over soften the leather beyond your preference.

If you wear the belt routinely it will break in overtime molding to your body. This will help maintain the rigidity of the belt.
