Ohio made heavy duty belt

The Rogue Ohio Lifting Belt is hand-crafted not to compete with the world of mass-produced, sporting-goods-store weightlifting belts, but to offer a stronger, longer-lasting alternative for customers serious about strength training and investing for the long haul.

One of the distinguishing features of the Rogue Ohio Lifting Belt is its vegetable tanned leather. Derived from the all-natural cowboy method of tanning hides, the vegetable tanning process can take weeks to complete, versus the mere hours of modern sole tanning. The reward for this painstaking effort, however, is a firm, ultra-durable, water-resistant leather weight belt with a rich, natural brown tone. The vegetable tanning process means you'll receive a belt with a softer feel that is just as strong as the rest, with a break-in time that is nearly nonexistent.

Because it bears the Rogue name, it goes without saying that this leather lifting belt is also Made in the USA and optimized for convenience, with a single-buckle design for quick, easy adjustments. Thickness may vary from belt to belt due to the properties of leather.

Fit Guide:

Measurement 21" - 28" 26" - 33" 31" - 37" 34" - 41" 38" - 45"

How to measure: Using a measuring tape held snug, measure around where the belt will be worn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lifting Belt I was loosing weight and measured wrong and ordered the wrong size belt. Rogue promptly shipped a new belt, the XL and it fits perfect as I am 6' 205 lbs. The quality is top quality cow grain leather. Very happy with my purchase. Love that it is American made!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent belt Not a bad belt. I've seen some complaints about how it's not one solid piece of leather. That's because no cattle have 10mm thick hides, so it's two 5mm pieces stitched together. The edges and corners have been trimmed at an angle to take the bite out of it and make it feel more broken in. This is a good solid belt that will last a long time. It is not, however, a 5 star one time purchase belt. The two sides of the belt are stitched but not also glued. The leather is soft and the holes give quite a bit under stress. The edges are unburnished and will allow moisture damage. The inner piece of leather ends at the buckle, and there is no mention of a lifetime warranty. This is a solid belt but not intended to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! I was in search of a quality belt because my squat came to a stall. Heard really good things about the Ohio belt previously and I decided to go for it. It's awesome. I was able to hit 315 for 5 reps as compared to 1 time without it. Before using a belt please make sure to brace correctly to take full advantage of the lower back support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best belt I've ever purchased I've used it a few times a week for about a month now and I'm very impressed. I've used other belts that were not nearly as supportive or well made as the Rogue Ohio Lifting Belt, which was ready to use right out of the box. It's a well crafted belt that provides great support when I deadlift and squat. I also have to say that Rogue's customer service is top notch. I was right on the border between a Medium and a Large and I e-mailed Rogue and asked for their recommendation and only a half hour later had a response that provided me with the guidance I needed to order the right size for my needs and they were right on. Also, my order shipped the same day I placed it and I received it only a couple days later. Rogue is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Craftsmanship This belt is fantastic. Solid and durable, you couldn't do anything to ruin this thing. I use it for any heavy squatting and it helps tremendously. The buckle does sometimes get in the way if you use this for snatching, but it is an easy fix if you twist it to the side. Again, I cannot stress how high the quality is. I am definitely grabbing the Rogue Olympic Lifting Belt because of how great this belt is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear I originally bought the Rogue Echo belt because it cost half of what this belt did. After owning the Echo belt for a few months I started having some issues with it. I emailed Rogue about it and Patrick was extremely helpful if getting things resolved. I opted to pay the difference and get the Ohio lifting belt and all I can say is it is a night and day difference in quality and comfort. Every detail of the Ohio belt is awesome. Great stitching, the roller on the buckle is smooth and seamless, the leather is soft but supportive - I wish I bought this belt to start with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My thoughts This belt is expensive but worth the cost when compared lower quality belts. The leather on this belt is finished beautifully the pictures do not do it justice. I have had cheaper belts that don't break in properly or don't offer correct ab bracing this belt does both beautifully . Spend the money and get this piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAST MODE Ordered this belt and held off a week before doing legs. Wanted to go for a 1RM using this belt. Nothing short of complete BEAST MODE !!! As soon as you strap it on you feel the support you need for doing big weight. I went from 335 at 3 reps to 375 for 2 the next week using this...COMPLETELY SATISFIED. This belt coupled with the REHBAND 7mm Blue knee wraps make you feel invincible... A must have to take your squats to the next level...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridiculous Quality, size was exact First thing's first and that's sizing. You NEED to measure yourself to order a belt correctly! I wear 32x30 pants and measured 35" where I wear my lift belt. You CANNOT order the belt by your shirt size alone! I wear medium shirts 95% of the time and was nervous buying the Large belt (I just measured the belt out of the box and it runs big, tightest = 28", loosest =38" ). Save yourself a headache when ordering this beauty and take the time to measure yourself! Ridiculous quality, couldn't be happier . Fitment is as close to perfect as I expected, I notched it at the 5th hole of 10 so I have room either way on the belt. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt, expedient shipping! This belt made my 3RM feel like my 5RM. I had been using a ~4mm thick lifting belt before and when I strapped this baby on, I instantly felt like I had the support I had only wished for. I ordered this belt and in 6 days time, I had it around my waist on the other side of the world. Rogue really knows how to get their products to their customers quickly, and efficiently.

Although I haven't used it yet i can see the quality and sturdiness of the belt, the leather is beautiful and looks amazing. Once again Rogue has produced a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Belt! I just purchased this belt early in the week and now have it in my possession. Wow! That is fast service!! I had read all the reviews on this belt as well as some of the others and was apprehensive on what size to get, but my decision was easy since this belt was out of stock in the Large so went with the XL. It fits beautifully. My stats: 5'10 - 205lbs - athletic/muscular build - 36 jeans. At the very tightest I am comfortable with this belt still has 3 notches left. I have not lifted with this belt yet but am highly looking forward to my next workout! Btw, belt looks fantastic (old school look).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets no better!!! I just received my Ohio belt today. WOW. This belt is the truth!! Gets no better.Its everything i expected and more. The tanned leather is on point. VERY NICE. Stiff but broken in. Smells so good.(LOL). Have not had a chance to squat or DL with it yet but im sure it will serve its purpose just fine.(SOLID BELT). If you like the classic old school look of the past buy this. It wont disappoint you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Belt I was deciding between this and a lever belt. I finally decided to buy this because of its advertised softer feel and the fact that I fluctuate quite a bit on my weight and didn't want to hassle with adjusting the lever belt. I made the right choice for me. The belt does have a broken in feel when you get, however it is not exaggerated it is still plenty stiff you just get to skip the break in period. Buckle works well and is fairly easy to really crank it down for maximal effort lifts. As far as sizing I measured 36" over my t-shirt in the area that wear the belt, this puts me in the middle of the XL so thats what I ordered. WRONG size the last hole was still not quite as tight as I wanted. Exchanged it for a L, which I am in the top range on, and it fits nicely. I am on the fifth hole out of ten (perfect place so I can gain and lose weight and stay in the same belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but runs large This is a very nice belt, the roller on the buckle works much better than any of the community belts at the gym. I did want to comment on the sizing, I'm 6'1", 225#, size 36 Levis, measuring 41" over a t-shirt. Per the sizing chart I'm actually at the upper end of the range for the XL, but I'm on the 4th smallest whole. It's a fine fit for me but someone who measures near the middle of the range is going to be swimming in this thing. I'd recommend that Rogue publish the buckle to first and last hole measurements for the belts, that would take all of the guesswork out of selecting the size. I assume that the vast majority of customer's buying a premium belt have another belt they can measure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BELT !! I was concerned about size after reading the reviews. I ordered a large and it fits perfect. I'm a 186lb w 32" waist (stomach where belt is worn) and there's 3 holes left. Great support for those Oly lifts. This will be my last belt I ever buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I love this belt, but begin a little guy it rubs on my anterior ileus crest spine, leaving bruises on my hips often. I don't really care about this, but some would. If you do, buy the OLY belt. I have a Large, but I wish I had a medium. Anyone wanna trade?
Date published: 2015-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio Belt Amazing quality! Regarding sizing, I measure 33.5 Inches around my "belt area" (navel). I got the Large, but should have gotten the medium. So the people saying that it runs small, i don't agree with. I would say it runs true to size. To have a tight fit, I have to tighten the belt till I only have 3 holes left.
Date published: 2015-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never need another belt. My only complaint is that it is rather small. I have debating on sending it back to size up, but I think I'm going to keep it. I'm bulked up with 3 holes left. Order it big and keep it forever. It breaks in super quick too.
Date published: 2015-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt!! Just received my belt today!! But unfortunately I am disappointed about the size. I ordered a large from what people were saying to order a size up because it runs small. I have measured around my belly button of a 31 to 32 and I am at the second to the last hole for tightness. Granted I am from Hawaii, and shipping is expensive. Will exchange for a medium. Became full with sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest review ever right here! I am 5'10" and weigh 174. I am a size 31-32 waist, with about 15-20% body fat and I ordered the size L and it fits GREAT. I was skeptical about whether or not I should order the M or L, but I'm glad I went with the L, because the M would NOT have fit me. It fits nicely on the 4th hole, with 6 more tighter holes to go. I hope this review helps you decide what size to get as I'm sure lots of people are having trouble deciding.Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Belt I've Ever Use I've been lifting for years and the trainer at my gym had one of these. After borrowing his, I decided it was time to get one of my own. This is the first belt that I've truly enjoyed using while lifting. It's sturdy but also comfortable. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations!!! I just received my two powerlifting belts (10 & 13mm) and just had to send you a note to tell you how AMAZING these belts are! Worth every penny ( and I think inexpensive for the quality you get.). The 13mm-thick belt has to be the most substantial belt I have ever seen, and I love the sound it makes as the different layers creak and flex. There are thousands of less expensive alternatives to be found on the internet, but when you're ready for the good stuff, THIS IS IT!! It will impress from the moment you take it out of the box. Thank you guys for making such an awesome product, and restoring my faith in buying American-made products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best belt I've ever used This belt is made of high quality leather that I know I could keep for the next 20 years or more. It has a suprisingly quick break in time (I curled it up and put a dumbbell on top of it overnight a couple times). The sizes run accurate, you have to measure around your belly button not your waist. You have to wear it with the buckle in the middle (like in the picture). It's durability is great for really heavy squats and deadlifts. It's pretty expensive for a weightlifting belt but the quality of it when you first feel it you can tell it was made from high quality leather and totally worth it. You pay for what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality I bought this belt about months ago after a back injury I received while using a nylon belt . I knew I needed the upgrade but waited too long. This thing is a beast of a belt. I use it twice a week with my heavy squats lifts or doing deads. The belt still looks brand new after all the sweat and being thrown around all over the place with absolutely no stretching or scratches which is insane. It will probably be the last belt I ever have to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt Looks great and does what it's supposed to do. I bought per the size chart and it fits perfect. I was near the top end of the large and worried it wouldn't fit based on other reviews. I think maybe others are going based on their jean size which is not the same. Turns out if you are a size 34 you probably measure more than that (especially in the US). It's called vanity sizing and it makes us feel better about our selves:). Just measure where you are actually going to wear it and it should fit great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome belt! My go-to for all my heavy lifts! Purchased this belt about a year ago and have loved it from the first use! It is a little stiff upon arrival (as expected due to the thickness and width) but broke in very fast. Never had a problem with the edges digging in or bothering me during lifts. High quality leather has held up tremendously well! I bought this primarily for heavy squats and it out performs any other belt I've used in over 14 years of lifting. I was hoping to be able to do cleans and snatches too but was a little concerned the buckle would be too bulky to work around. My fears were unwarranted and I grab this belt without hesitation for any lift. I've let several people borrow it and never heard a negative comment back and 3 people went out and bought their own after trying mine. If you're serious about heavy lifting and need some strong support but don't want to spend weeks breaking in a new belt got with the Ohio Belt! I have no expectation of needing to replace this belt and can't come up with a single complaint. BUY IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BELT I just received this belt and boom! A perfect fit. Felt comfortable as soon as I put it on. My waist is a 33 and fit perfect. I have two sons the tried it on and fit them as well. One had to use the last belt hole, but his waist is closer to a 30...at the waist line that is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! Watch the Size Tho Amazing top quality belt. I originally ordered the large and had to reorder the medium. As a power lifter at 5'10 and 188lbs (compete at 181) the medium is perfect for a tight tit, only 3 to 4 holes left at its tightest with assist. For a 165 this would be a perfect fit, 198 get the large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Belt So I thought I'd add a review a year after owning the belt. I can honestly say that this is, hands down, the best belt I've ever used. I won't say that I'm a person that's used every belt on the market, but I got tired of using loaners from boxes and gyms. The belt breaks was super stiff when I got it, and I actually just folded it in half and put my coach on it, rotating it once an hour for about a day to get it to loosen up. Others I've talked to have actually rolled it as tight as they can and drove over it. It broke in pretty quickly. Anyway, the belt offers great support and I love the wide front. My *only* minor issue is that the buckle in the front can be a bit uncomfortable. I've found that shifting the front of the belt to the right a bit prevents the discomfort. I'm not the only one I've seen doing it with this. I'm sure that Rogue will incorporate a small padding between the buckle and the person in the future. Love the belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Belts Run Small! These are Great Belts, Great Quality, Craftsmanship and Material -but they Run Small! For Example, if you are a Size 30-31 Waist you'd think you were a Medium, right? Wrong! Good luck trying to Squeeze into that - go for the Next size up, as I had to Learn the hard Way. Now I must DeadLift & wait *patiently* for my Return/Exchange. :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt This belt arrived today, and I am very pleased with it. It is flexible and feels fully broken in right out of the box, but the thickness and width make it feel very sturdy. The leather is soft and the hardware seems strong. The only quality issue is that the spacing between the stitching and the edge of the belt isn't consistent near the rounded end of the belt (not the buckle end) and doesn't line up quite right, but this doesn't appear to be something that will impact strength or durability. I didn't measure around my stomach where I wear a lifting belt, but I weigh 220 with a 33-inch waist and the large is the right size. There are 10 holes, and the fourth hole is a good tight fit. Could cinch it down to the fifth hole if I wanted a very tight fit. Looking forward to my next squat day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells as good as it performs This belt is a blast from the past. The thick leather and perfect stitching is reminiscent of a belt that may have been found in the Golds Gyms of the 60's. And I have a feeling it'll only look better with wear and time. If you're looking at this belt you know what it's for and what it does. Added 20lbs to my back squat and 40lbs to my front squat. Buckle can get in the way if doing ground to overhead with a bar but I feel like most would. Only downside is it won't fit through the belt loops on my jean shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides awesome stability & support! Definitely a must! I've never been big into use belts but I decided to give it a shot to help me improve my heavier lifts. All I can say is WOW. The OHIO Belt made a huge difference in my core stability and allowed me to see results from the first time I put it on. Its such a versatile piece of equipment and I'm more than satisfied with my investment. If you're on the fence about buying this, don't be. It's worth every dollar. A+ in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weight lifting belt! This is the best weightlifting belt I have owned in terms of function and looks! I have obtained personal records in the deadlift, back, front, and overhead squats. The back support has also allowed me to better all shoulder to overhead lifts. A drawback is that buckle gets in the way when I power clean. I hope as I break the belt in, the front buckle will get more supple and not obstruct my clean movements. This is absolutely a great and wise purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Belt This is a great belt to lift heavy with. For me personally it is way too wide to WOD in but for the days I just lift it is perfect. My only gripe is, within a week of owning the belt one of the rivets broke but doesn't seem to effect the integrity of the belt probably more cosmetic than anything. Still a 5 star product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! I have lower back issues (a few compressed discs) and am often a bit cowed by squat lifting heavy weight such as carrying a loaded yoke. I spotted my coaches left belt on the floor and asked him if I could use it. I cinched it up tight and lifted that yoke with such support! My lower back and abs felt GREAT! I highly recommend this piece of vital equipment if you suffer from lower back problems ....not a twinge! Thank you Rogue for a quality product at a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works 6'2" 203, I wear 32" waist jeans. I ordered the medium. The belt is tight on hole 3, there are 7 tighter holes remaining. I would have liked to see the loop for the tail be a little tighter. Not the nicest looking up close, but I suspect it will work great and last a long time.
