Belt Information

13. What is the Brute Belt made of?

The Brute Belt is built-to-last and hold up to the toughest workouts. The belt is made entirely of military-grade materials. This includes the main fabric of 1000D Ballistic Nylon, 1.75” 17337 Mil-Spec Nylon Webbing (7,000 lb tensile strength), 1” tubular nylon loops/adjustable strap (4,000 lb tensile strength), 1.75” Locking V-Ring Steel Forged Buckle (2,000 lb tensile strength), 3” Steel Forged Carabiners (700 lbs tensile strength), and 1” metal mini-cam buckles (600 lbs tensile strength).

14. How much weight can the Brute Belt hold?

The Brute Belt was designed and constructed with quality and durability in mind. The belt can hold 270 lbs (six 45 lb plates) with ease. Refer to the tensile strengths of individual materials listed in Question #13 above. Note that the belt has not been tested above 270 lbs and anything beyond this amount will be at your own risk!

15. Does one size fit all?

No. Unlike a traditional dip belt, the Brute Belt adjusts around your waist and thus is based on your waist size. The belt comes in 3 sizes: Small (28" - 33"), Medium (33" - 38"), and Large (38"-43").

16. How do I determine the correct size for my waist?

To determine the correct size belt, measure your waist at your navel with a tape measure. Take the measurement over your normal gym clothing and pull the tape measure so it is snug. Do not go by your pants size. If your waist falls between the 2 sizes, we would recommend purchasing the larger of the two sizes unless you are planning on losing weight.

17. How do I tighten the Brute Belt around my waist?

The Brute Belt can be tightened using the rigger buckle. Just feed the belt strap through the first opening in the buckle, and then back through the second opening in the buckle. Pull the belt strap to tighten. The buckle is designed to keep the belt snug against your waist during the exercise and will not loosen until you feed the strap back through the second opening. Go to our How to Use page for further details including pictures.

18. Do I need to remove the Brute Belt between sets?

No. After a set, you can unclip the adjustable strap and weights with the 2 carabiners, keeping the belt around your waist. When you are ready for the next set, just clip the strap and weights back to the belt, and you're ready to go.

19. How does the Brute Belt comapare to traditional dip belts?

When we designed the Brute Belt, we recognized 4 major problems with traditional dip belts that we’ve solved. 

  1. Versatility – Traditional dip belts can only be used for a limited number of exercises (pull-ups, dips, chin-ups, etc.). With the 8 loops (including buckle) located around the belt, the Brute Belt can be used to increase the resistance for a wide range of exercises including squats, split squats, rack chins, planks, and much more! Check out our Videos/Gallery page and our Blog for descriptions, pictures, and videos of exercises that the Brute Belt can be used for. 

  2. Comfort – Traditional dip belts are uncomfortable, pinch skin, and often dig into the user’s waist with no padding. They also don’t tighten around the waist relying the user’s hips to hold the weight up. The Brute Belt has built-in padding with a custom non-slip grip and can be tightened around the user’s waist to remain comfortable and stable throughout the entire exercise. We think you’ll agree that the Brute Belt is one of the most comfortable exercise belts on the planet. 

  3. Quality – If you’re like us, you’ve snapped chains and clips, and torn fabric on your dip belts in the past. Some dips belts can only hold a maximum weight of 50 lbs. The Brute Belt is made of quality military-grade materials and is designed to last. The belt can hold 270 lbs (six 45 lb plates) with ease. 

  4. Adjustability – Traditional dip belt chains are either too short or too long. Some can (pull-ups, dips, chin-ups, etc.). With the 8 loops (including buckle) located around the belt, the Brute Belt can be used to increase the resistance for a wide range of exercises including squats, split squats, rack chins, planks, and much more!

The Brute Belt features a fully-adjustable strap that can be as short as 1.5 feet and as long as 3 feet in seconds. Whether you are working with a 10-lb plate or four 45-lb plates, the Brute Belt allows you to adjust the strap so the weights hang exactly where you want them.

20. Does the Brute Belt offer lower back support?

The Brute Belt is padded and does offer lower back support when tightened. Many of our customers detach the strap and use the belt for extra lower back support during exercises like barbell rows, Romanian deadlifts, T-bar rows, and curls. The belt is not intended or designed to be used as a squat belt.

21. Do you add weights to the Brute Belt the same way as a traditional dip belt?

Yes. The only difference is that when you use the Brute Belt, you place the belt around your waist and tighten it, and then feed the strap through the weight and clip to the loops on the belt. Dumbbell weights are even easier to add. Go to our How to Use page for further details on adding weights using the Brute Belt.

22. How does the adjustable strap work?

The adjustable strap is tubular nylon with 2 loops at each end which are fed through metal cam buckles (600 lb. strength). Just push on the cam buckle and pull to adjust the length of the strap in seconds. The cams are designed for nylon fabric and will not slip during the exercise. Go to our How to Use page for further details on using the adjustable strap.

23. What exercises can I use the Brute Belt for?

With the 8 loops and the adjustable strap, the Brute Belt can be used for a wide range of exercises for almost every body part. Go to our Videos/Gallery page and our Blog for descriptions, pictures, and videos of exercises that the Brute Belt can be used for.

24. How tight should the Brute Belt fit around my waist?

The Brute Belt should fit snug, but not tight, against your waist. The belt should be snug enough so it doesn't slide over your hips or move during the exercise.

25. How much does the Brute Belt weigh?

The Brute Belt including the adjustable strap weighs just over 1 pound.

26. Is the Brute Belt travel friendly?

Yes, since the Brute Belt is all fabric, it takes up minimal space in your gym bag or luggage. If space is a concern, the belt can be rolled up to the size of a softball. Don’t see the answer you’re looking for? Let us know your question at info@brutebelt.com and we’ll respond within 24 hours.

27. What is the best way to clean/care for the belt?

We recommend hand washing in the sink with a mild detergent (Dawn dish soap or similar) and gently scrubbing with a soft, plastic bristle brush. the belt should then be rinsed thoroughly to remove any detergent and left to air dry.
