Great product

This is a very nicely designed and functional weight belt. The 5# soft lead shot bags are a snug fit, probably as big as you can get into the pouches.

XS Scuba weight belt review

I purchased this item specifically for dry suit use. However I discovered that the pockets were too small to fit standard soft pellet weights. Due to this design flaw, I returned the item.

Great product easy to use

Have several of these for personal use and use during open water certs. Makes fine tuning weights a snap with easy in and out Velcro closed pockets.

we like them

I was surprised by the negative reviews. We bought one because our BCD weight pockets are so far in back for a large person it was making my wife flip over. During the testing I realized I had similar problems. This gives us great control. The construction is solid which makes them stiff. The position clips are a bit difficult to move. I would like to see a snap buckle type adjustment. I made custom weights of sheet lead specific to these pockets. I can get 6# in them. I have a hard time believing that a 5# shot bag will fit.

Looks great!

We have not used it yet. We bought for the convenience of having a travel belt. From what I see, this will work great. Nice adjustments. Solid construction.

Disappointed

By

Did a test of this weight belt in a pool. The pocket position can not be adjusted, so depending on your waist size, they can end up on your side or back. The pockets were fairly small. I placed 2 lb bags in them, as that seemed to fit well. On occasion I would notice one of the bags at the bottom of the pool, having slipped though the openings at the bottom of the pockets. Not good.

Good product, good price

By

It's comfortable to wear and stays put well during the dive. I've mostly used integrated weights so I wasn't sure I was going to like using any weight belt. I've used some that feel bulky and travel around my body during a dive. However, this one is the most comfortable I've used and I don't notice that I'm wearing it. I like how the sleeves can be moved around the belt to achieve comfort and the best trim, and the clips hold the sleeves in place. Overall, the construction seems sturdy and I think it will hold up well over time.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
David B  I chose this belt to weight my telescope because reviews on the web revealed that its construction is durable. For weighting my telescope I want to be able to very quickly change out the amount of weight. The fact that the little pockets open to change out weights quickly without having to remove the entire belt is helpful.
PETER M  Velcro pockets make it easy to change out weights depending on whether I am SCUBA or freediving.
JENNY H  good price. works well. pretty stiff tho
HARVEY H  Very comfortable belt. Easy to fill and change the lead. Beats the old web bellts in every way.
CHUCK H  This is a top quality, well constructed weight belt. The Velcro pockets make weight change a breeze. The added clips allow attachment of other support gear, i.e., pockets, clips.
FRED G  I use these for training students. It makes adjusting their weight requirements quick and easy.
Frederico O  what's the item number please?
Ben T  SKU: XSSWB WB104 - Up to 20 pounds in four pockets WB106 - Up to 30 pounds in six pockets WB108 - Up to 40 pounds in eight pockets
MIKE H  What is the overall length of the belt? I have heard they are all 60" no matter if you order the 4 pocket or 8 pocket. I just wanted to make sure this is true. Also, are the pockets secure on the belt or due they move around?
MICHAEL S  The pockets are removable from the belt and can be adjusted towards the front or back, but they stay in place while wearing the belt. This means that the nylon belt itself can be replaced if it wears out or is not long enough. I don't know about the belt length, but I got the six pocket belt and it had a lot more length than I would ever need. The pockets are well made and well designed, so much better than anything else I've seen. I don't work for XS Scuba, but whoever designs their gear really understands my diving needs.
ROBERT H  I know i had to cut the belt because it was long. as far the pockets 4 keepers as shown in pictures 2 on each side. basically the keepers sandwich the pockets on each side.
SETH F  The total length of the belt on the 4 pocket version is 55 inches. The pockets are secure on the belt, they won't move around during a dive. However, you can adjust them on the belt a little. I have about a 30-31 inch waist, I wouldn't use this belt if your waist is smaller than that.
ERIC V  I don't recall the overall length of the belt as I did cut it down (rounded edges and lightly melted to seal against fraying) but it was definitely a lot longer than the 30" or so that it is now. There are metal "pass thrus" which you can see in the photo which stay in one place once you slide them into the desired position. If you position one on each side of the group of pockets, i.e. 4 in all, then everything stays in place perfectly. If you want more than 2 groups of pockets, then you will need to find a way to secure the additional pocket group in place... Find 2 more metal slides, sew or pin them in place. Overall it's great to be able to just add weights to your pockets positioned exactly where you like them then having to slide, position, hope they stay,... on every dive day.
ROSE D  Hi Mike, I love my belt but had to cut it down to fit so I don't remember the exact length. You can look up their website and they have a phone # there where they can answer your questions. Leisure Pro had the best price for this item. The pockets do not shift around and there is a metal slider to keep them stable. The belt does not shift on your body and stays in place. I ordered an extra pocket as I always seem to be weight challenged (steel vs aluminum etc) If you have room on your belt just attach it there and leave it empty for adjustments. I creatively attach mine wherever I can. I 1st saw this belt when friends were using theirs and they adored it. That was good enough for me. Get it, it's great. Happy diving and have a great day. Rose
BRIAN R  I have the 6 pocket and I had to trim a lot off, I think close to a foot (I have a 36" waist) so I think the size is okay for most people. The pockets have metal slides on each side of them to keep them from moving during a dive but allows you to pick the location best for you. These are a pain to move so take the time to get it set up correctly before the dive because it will not be possible to adjust in the water.
KEELY J  Yes the belt was long and I cut it off (and remelted the raw edge) because I'm very small. No, they aren't secure they can be positioned how you like them. Mine are 2 & 2 . I really like mine! I hope that helps! Happy diving :-)
ANDREW P  Mine has 6 pockets. It measures 48 inches. Pockets are sewed together in groups of three. Each group slides over the belt which would allow you to put in a longer belt if necessary. The pocket groups are kept from sliding by a belt glide at either end (4 glides total).
