nike ratchet lifting belt??

i just got last week a nike lifting belt..
it has a ratchet mechanism to tighten it..
i have used it once and was very impressed, loads and loads of support..
have any of you seen or used them, if so what do you think??

it's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice... :)

    I think they are a load of crap mate you don't see any pro body builders using them...
    Why not sell it on ebay or you can give it to me

    Never seen it but I would expect any lifting equipment made by Nike to be a load of crap.

    I've seen it, and I think it looks like a pretty decent belt, as far as belts go. If you like it, that's the main thing, but I wouldn't use a belt without good reason e.g. injury - if you can train without a belt, that is better imo

    wb, I didn't say it wasn't good for you. But unless you have had an injury, why use a belt? You would be better allowing your lower back to develop evenly and naturally without any outside support, imo. There are circumstances where a belt/other support (eg knee/elbow wraps) ought to be used, perhaps in competition and the like. I would say that if you can do without it, do without it.

    I injured my back doing DLs, and wore a belt during my recovery. I binned it when fully recovered.
