Comments about Schiek's Sports Schiek 2004 Leather Lifting Belt - 4 3/4 inch:
I love Schiek products, especially these belts. They last for years and are great support. We had these in my high school gym and I recommended them for our college gym because of how long they've lasted at my high school. The only thing that I don't like about leather belts is that they take a while to break in. I marked these as both comfortable and uncomfortable because they are a little uncomfortable until broken in. After they're broken in, they're perfect. They move with you and the rear padding keeps it close to your back. I had a hernia repaired just a couple months ago and I feel way more comfortable getting back into heavy squat and deadlift with these. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to buy a weightlifting belt. The price is higher than a lot of fabric belts, but these last and won't break. All you need is the right size and you won't be disappointed.
