    As far as powerlifting goes you may want to look into something a little more 'heavyduty'... No offense RR!!!

    EFS Power Belt - 13mm

    EFS Prime Cut Belt - 10/12mm

    EFS Retro Series Power Belt

    EFS 'Tapered' Training Belt

    Also look into Inzer products, www.inzernet.com

    Best of luck!

    I know you said you didnt want to spend more than $50 on a belt, but I currently use a Cardillo lever belt. Its not all that comfortable but it gets the job done. The fit is good which is the important factor

    I too have been thinking of getting one. So anyone know if there is a specific reason to get a 6" or 8" or whatever they come in?
    The thickness top to bottom when on in the lower back area?
    I almost grabbed a Nike one from Sports Authority like the Shiek one but felt like i would destroy it.

    Also, try a basic sports store, the same one has some nice strong leather ones for $35 and under by me.

    Wow, used a belt for my first time ever squating. It was an Atlas i think, leather, small pad in the back, i think a 6" in back and 3 or 4" everywhere else.
    Hit 315 for 3 but didnt want to push hard. Felt so good, lower back next day was fine, legs and glutes hurt liek a mofo....def. gettin one for myself.
