    I know it's expensive but the ss belt is excellent and is intended to last a lifetime

    yeah the double-ply belt is pretty nice but for $140CAD I can get the Inzer 10mm Lever belt which will be the price of the single-ply SS belt which I think is better value at least in Canada. even Belt like the Rogue Echo ends up ridiculous $130 here so it doesn't make sense to purchase from US retailers.

    Inzer isnít in the same league as the SS belt. I have a leathercraft belt which is about the same price as the SS. Thatís what it costs for a good quality, sole leather belt. I also have a strength shop 4Ē lever belt-I no longer use it. There is a certain feel about a good leather belt which makes it unmatched. That said, if you canít afford one, then you canít afford one.

    Well it's one of the most popular brands of belts for powerlifters so I can only imagine they must the doing something right and the reviews I've seen are almost all positive. There's like no name Amazon belts that are like 40bucks but I'm poor not stupid lol.

    First belt I bought was from ebay and was a cheapy as I didn't have the spare cash for a more expensive one.

    I read all the great reviews on their website and bought it thinking it was a good deal.

    Turns out the "leather" in the middle was basically the leather equivalent of fibre board. The buckle prong ripped through between the belt holes and the rivets popped out. I kid you not, I could actually pull it to pieces as if it was made of fluff.

    Lesson learned. Again. Buy cheap buy twice.

    My first two belts were the $40 amazon belts (Flexz Fitness?), and they were excellent for the price (I just grew out of them). I now have a 4" dominion.

    Forget the inzer. Get the SS/dominion belt. Highest quality product that will last a lifetime.

    My preferred belt manufacturer is Dominion Strength Training. Great company, excellent quality belts, American made, and Blake & Katie are good people. Right now, their single-ply starting strength belt is available for $100 US. Honestly, I'd pay the few extra bucks; you won't regret it.
