This single prong powerlifting belt made by Hawk is one of the best bang-for-your-bucks on the market. It’s specifications meet the requirements listed by the IPF so powerlifters can rejoice. It’s also extremely comfortable and durable making it a quality option for not only powerlifters but anyone hitting the gym who regularly finds themselves needing a belt.
The Hawk Single Prong Powerlifting Belt is made with “stiff, durable” leather that is meant to last. It’s sewn together with heavy stitching and black suede lining the inside. It should hold up for quite a while even with regular use. Expect to get years out of this belt. Also, it is worth noting that Hawk offers a lifetime warranty so if the belt ever were to break you may contact them for repair or a replacement.
Aside from the flimsy velcro belts that basically do nothing, most lifting belts tend to be at least a little bit uncomfortable depending on the belt and the level of tightness the lifter prefers. We can say that of all the lifting belts we’ve tried, this is one of the most comfortable. It’s built with rounded edges that allow it to conform to the torso rather than to dig into it. As with any belt there is a “breaking in” period where this belt won’t be all that comfortable but after a couple uses and some bending back and forth it should start to ease up and you likely won’t mind wearing it one bit.
This belt is 10mm in thickness and 4” in width. These specifications fall under the IPF’s competition requirements. Those seeking to compete in powerlifting may use this belt in competition.
This belt comes in small, medium, and large. The sizes with the corresponding waist measurement are as follows:
Hawk recommends that you measure your waist and if you are between sizes to select the upper size.
For those seeking a comfortable, durable belt they can use on all their major compound lifts, look no further. This belt checks all the boxes. So, what’s the catch? A great belt for $25.99? There is no catch. This belt is simply an excellent value purchase and you’ll be very happy you chose to buy it shortly after doing so.
