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.
Pullum-Sports have a leather dipping belt for £20. They don't give any indication of what kind of load it can take but for £20 it might be worth a try -


Personally I think the Ironmind belt is a bit overpriced for what it is so I'd get this.

I think I prefer Spuds, actually.

A friend uses the belt squat thing from IM as a chin dip belt.

Opted for a cheap one for the time being for £15 as I'm skint. I still think the clip is the weakest point so not fussed about the leather, can't see nylon tearing apart. Will get that IM one when I have some spare dough.
