Recently my coaches Oleg Kechko and Tracy Steinberg started up a business with Leonid Taranenko to start producing the old school Soviet style weightlifting belts from the 80's and I thought I'd put it out there for anyone interested to check out. These belts are really nice.
The LT266 Belt (like the older Russian belts) are made with a thick strip of leather on the inside (to prevent from breakage) and thin layers on the the outside to absorb sweat and form to the body. These belts are forever, end of discussion. They simply will not break!
The cool thing about these belts is that they are so strong and yet so supple and soft!
