I bought this belting after reading an article on www.powerliftingtowin.com This was my first competition style belt (13mm thick, single prong etc) after using a crappy Valeo for 2 years. I was worried it would take a lot of time to break in, but that was just not the case.
Right off the bat, the belt was comfortable to wear, and i really felt it gave me a lot more support when squatting. I am able to really push my abdomen into the belt.
There is another review on here that comments on how difficult the belt is to get off, but i do not find that to be true. You do have to get comfortable with it, but if you pull down and the same time you are trying to release the prong, it comes off with ease.
Don't make the mistake i did and order based on your pant size, actually measure where you will wear the belt. The one i ordered originally was too small, but my workout partner ended up buying it because he liked it so much, and i ordered the correct size for myself.
Best belt for the money in my opinion.
