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.
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.
