Good Dipping Belts
Can anybody recommend a good Dipping Belt?

Steven Low 03-02-2008 01:19 PM

Yeah, I'm interested in getting one as well.

This one has worked for me.

I'm a huge fan of the IronMind De Rigeuer dipping belt. It is light, very comfortable, wears well, and will support any load you can. Just make sure you double-pass the strap through the buckle.

I snapped my Maximuscle dipping belt with just 20kg on it last night, although I've used 30kg with it before. I didn't think that was a lot, but the clip itself has sheared.

Perhaps I could replace the clip with a karabiner or something from a climbing shop, but I wondered regardless can anybody recommend a strong one I can get in the UK please?

The one from spud inc is good too. They usually have a good sale for black friday.

Length of chain + pool noodle + carbiner + some duct tape. About $20, tops.

I've been using an old style leather dipping belt for the past twenty years and have never had any problems with it. I've had 60 kg on it with no issues but you might want to try something more modern like the Ironmind belt -


Alternatively if money's tight you could get a leather belt from Powerhouse Fitness -

The one I had looked a perfectly decent leather one, but clearly the metal is of a shit grade.

The sensible option would be Shaf's chain idea, but I'm edging towards the delicious ironmind one which should last forever. That is unless an in between one is around that guarantees say 50kg.

I guess the problem is if you're quite snappy with chins or dips or whatever you exert more force despite not having a large 'weight' on it and it eventually weakens.
