Can anyone recommend a good quality dipping belt, my one broke today =( I want to get a new one asap as I'm loving weighted, chins, pull ups and dips right now. Preferably online as I am in Ireland.

So please give me your recommendations!!

Thanx

Yes, the home made belt is the prime option. By the way, check the entire Homemade Equipment Links for some nice ideas, a sticky thread posted by Ross in the Training Equipment section on this forum.
If you are going on the commercial route, try to avoid any leather belt and get one which is made of fiber materials for maximum comfort. Cannot go wrong with either Ironmind De Rigueur or Spud Inc. Dip Belt/Squat Belt.

A thick pool noodle can also be used for the DIY version above. The material is a bit more durable in my opinion.

which of these would be the most comfy when doing dip/hip belt squats?

Ironmind De Rigueur (or) Spud Inc. Dip Belt/Squat Belt?

at the minute i have a leather dip belt which rubs on the hip bone alot, i have been putting a thick towel under it but it still digs in and leaves the hips sore for a day or two.

Thanks for all the advice guys.

I made one up as per the video posted by Bjorn, Cheers Bjorn

I wont be lifting heavy again till Friday so I haven't road tested it yet but it feels pretty solid. I'm expecting it to cope very well.


Thanks again guys

I own the ironmind hip squat/dip belt and it is def quality. Its pretty comfortable and strong. I recommend it if you got the money and it is def built to last imo.

is it comfy when you go heavy? im looking to do heavy squats with it without having it dig into my hips. have you loaded it up to around 100kg's?

I own the De Rigueur, not the Super Squats Hip Belt. I have used it exclusively for dips and pull-ups, so never loaded close to 100kg. It's about 6.7 inch/17 cm wide, extremely comfy and almost an overkill for weighted dips & pull ups.
