Although I've never used a lifting belt before, so I have nothing to compare to, I've done moderate research on what I felt I needed.
Firstly, the belt looks awesome. I love the clean leather look. It appears fairly well made and good quality, stitching is perfect. It is plenty sturdy enough for me to brace my core well through the entire movement for heavy lifts.
The downsides for me is that I'm in between sizes, so I went up a size as advised. It means I have a lot of belt left to hook into the strap out of the way. I notice a couple of crease marks as I do this, but will see how it holds up over a longer period of time. The belt does pinch when tightened a lot, but assume it may reduce as I wear the belt it.
All in all very happy with the purchase, belt works really well in helping me brace the core in heavy lifts in the bottom positions.
