To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This belt gets all the basics down very well. It protects your lower back and provides extra intra-abdominal pressure allowing you to lift heavier at less risk of injury. I was able to deadlift over 500 lbs and squat over 400 lbs comfortably.
The belt is sturdy. There is no padding, but for me personally that's a plus because I find that that kind of excess "comfort" stuff reduces pressure and thus causes instability while lifting. The leather feels nice and of good quality.
The only slight downside I see is the front belt clasp presses into you in the front at higher body fat percentages, but if you're properly braced, much like the a heavy bar on your upper back/traps, you don't feel a thing.
I highly recommend this product, safety is #1!!
Also, it's noted in the description but I still see reviews containing, for sizing, measure your abdomen with tape or sting or something, it's not your pants size you buy with, it's your actual waist circumference, not at your hips.
I was surprised how much better this was than the belts I've used which was more expensive than this. The stitches are strong, gives proper support. Only going to purchase gym gear from this company only.
