Best Belts?

I'm trying to order a belt through BestBelts.net. I know these guys get great reviews on this forum and others.

I emailed a few days ago and called today without a response. Does anyone know if they're still in business?

Thanks. Do you have an email address? They're not responding to the one on their website.

Re: Best Belts?

What are you intending to use the belt for?

Powerlifting type lifts?

Olympic lifting type lifts?

something else?

I'll use it primarily for deadlifts and squats, but want something I can comfortably wear during C&J and snatch work.

I think the athlete belt is the best bet. Not sure if I should go w/ one or two prong (does it make a difference?). What are others experiences?

Its pretty much a 1 man operation. Dean takes the orders, custom makes the belts, and sends them to you. Unbelievably nice guy. Try calling again, leave a message if you didn't. He custom made a belt for me, and I got it in about a week. Same with my little brother. Best (no pun intended) belt for your money, imo.

Only difference is two prong is a MUCH bigger PITA to get on and off. Go with the 1 prong, again, imo.

Thanks - good point on the one prong.

Did you get the athlete belt too? Does it work well with Olympic lifting?

I have a single-prong athlete belt and like it a lot. Works well for powerlifting or olympic movements.

In regards to contact, what question(s) do you have? We, as a community, may be able to answer them for you.

Re: Best Belts?

I have the single prong athlete belt in navy blue and it looks fantastic. My friend has it in grey and it looks very nice too.

And Dean and Jackie are both awesome to work with.
