Im starting up dips again, but have no weight belt. I was gunna throw some weights into a backpack and go for it. Good or bad idea? Any other suggestions? Cheers!!!
Give me DOMS or give me death
I've used a backpack for dips and pullups in the past for up to about 50lb. It isn't quite as good as a belt, but it works alright.

If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.
I just hold a dumbbell between my legs. When you can't get any more reps just remember to let the DB fall to the floor before you try to put your feet down.
I had the same problem. I went to a fitness store and just bought a DB-Dip belt for around $30. That isn't too bad a price for something that looks like it will last forever.

Do not use a backpack. The weights can shift to a certain area of the backpack and cause injury. Use the Dip belt.
