ModiFit Elite 10mm Single Prong Powerlifting Belt v2.0
10mm Thick Powerlifting Belt
A very good belt at a reasonable price, I wanted a single prong belt so it would be easier to get on, it is and it has helped me get a couple of prs already. I also found the belt very easy to break in. I heartily recommend this product.
This is version 2 of our most popular Elite belt. We have now gone for Nubuck brown leather outer which is approximately 3mm thick with a layer of buffalo leather in the center (4-5mm thick) then a layer of suede on the inside approximately 2mm thick. This belt is 100% leather unlike many alternatives hence the price. This belt WILL last you a lifetime.
ModiFit Powerlifting Belt – Sizing Information
The image below shows where you would sit on each of the belts. Each belt has 8 holes spaced over 7″, indicated by the red dots. For example, if your belly button measures 32″ you would sit on approximately the 7th of 8 holes on a Medium and the 3rd of 8 holes on a Large. In this instance a Large would be a better fit. It is better to be near the bottom of a larger belt than near the top of the smaller belt, as you will have more of the end of the belt to hold onto when tightening and loosening the belt. This is especially important on a powerlifting belt due to their thickness. Just to stress – we do not recommend buying a size where you are on either the first or last hole. If you are unsure of sizing please give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!
Please measure around your waist / belly button where the belt will sit. Do not rely on your jeans size / waist size as this may be different.
- Small: 22″ – 29″

Meets IPF Spec – Not IPF Approved
These are to IPF spec from Technical Rule Book 2014 (updated January 2014). Please note, these are heavy duty powerlifting belts that will be really stiff when you first get it. If you’ve used a decent powerlifting belt before you will know this and know it takes a bit of time for it to break in! Fortunately, as these are our Elite belts, the leather is already pretty soft, so break-in time will be minimal!
Belt is 4″ wide (10cm) and 10mm thick (+/- 1mm).

Please note, as per our terms and conditions, the next day service is not guaranteed, nor are you able to claim a refund on non-delivery next day. In the last 12 months 98.5% of our shipments with DPD were either delivered next day or a delivery attempt was made (i.e. if the item wasn’t delivered it was because the recipient was out). That means only 1.5% of items were either delayed or misplaced at the depot temporarily. For full info on your rights please see the Terms & Conditions page.

We get a lot of messages asking if our powerlifting belts are IPF approved. Previously any manufacturer making supportive equipment simply had to follow the rules laid out by the IPF in terms of belt thickness, width, length etc., and this was enough to be approved. This is still the model followed by the IWF for weightlifting. Unfortunately in 2015 this changed to a pay per product model, i.e. the manufacturer would pay a fee for their belts, a fee for knee wraps etc., with the license running from Jan 2015 to Dec 2018. The new approval list will be released Jan 2019 and so we have received pricing from the IPF. The price for approval for belts is 7000EUR, which is not too bad – although there are 3 categories – Prong (single and double), lever and quick release, so if we wanted all of our belts approved we’d need to pay 3 x 7000EUR. Unfortunately any equipment manufacturers seeking approval also HAVE to buy a sponsorship package. The minimum tier of sponsorship is 30,000EUR per year and minimum of 4 years. Clearly 51,000EUR a year for 4 years is a fat whack of dosh. If we sold 1,000 belts that would equate to 51EUR per belt. 95% of our customers are simply looking for a great belt at a reasonable price. We know our belts are already used in BDFPA meets, but we will also be contacting as many other UK federations to check whether our belts meet their approval. We understand many people who are asking about IPF approval need it for a local competition who simply refer to equipment being IPF approved when in fact they may not need to be. Just wanted to make people aware when they ask about IPF approval, as the costs involved are astronomical, when once they were zero.
