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.
