Inzers forever belt is good, Metal's belts are good. APT has some good ones

Bob's Custom Lifting Belts is one of the first belts I've owned and it's still going strong 8 years later.

13MM is the thickest i believe. check out the sites Ben posted, they all are top notch, you will be satisfied.

depends on the federation, check the rules of your federation. most likely 13 though. definetely check the rulebook before you buy it

For bench, I like the TORO bench lever belt.

I got a 10mm from Elite just recently and I really like it. I like the thinner belt for deadlifts and it seems to work fine for squatting as well.

I heard a rumor that the guy who used to make Inzer's belts is now employed by Elite. Not sure whether it is true or not...

Look for a good 4" wide 13 MM power belt and make sure to get a "single prong" the double prong is hard to get on and off and the lever belts are personal preference but you can't adjust them based on your lifts (I torque my belt one notch harder for max effort but wear it a little loose for lighter lifts just for some support).

Right now I use an APT belt and love it. I had an Inzer training belt and it lasted a good two years but wore out eventually, those are only 10 mm.

The APT and the Inzer 13 MM single prongs are both great belts, you'll definitely have better customer service from APT and can probably get a 10% discount or some other goodies from them... prowriststraps.com

**I saw that you were looking at knee wraps as well.

I believe for Inzer you would have to buy direct and they would ship from the US...

You may have even better luck if you call them and order it. The number is on that page I linked to

I have only used double prong and never had issues with them, so that may even be personal preference as well. As far as tough getting on/off, you can just use a pillar of the rack to help crank it down a little if you need to. I don't wear mine real tight though.

Its $90 to get it shipped gutted

I have Inzer 10mm and 13mm Forever belts (2 prong). The 13 took a lot longer to break in. From my experiences, I'd highly recommend belts from Inzer.

I'd recommend Inzer's 10mm Lever and APT's buckle belts.

I have the 13mm single prong inzer and I like it very much... Ive used belts from Bob's and APT as well.

The parity between Inzer, Bob's, APT, and Metal is very close... I would just go with whatever is going to be cheapest to ship to you, they are all good brands, and I would imagine there is little difference between them as they all offer the same features
