    Great weight belt to use my soft weights. My only complaint is that I wish the 4x pockets could be taken apart and used in different configurations. When I was new to diving I needed more weight so this was great but now that I use a lot less, 3 of the 4 pockets on each side are empty and just add extra bulk. Oh well, time to buy single weight pockets.

    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.

    Comments about XS Scuba Weight Belt:

    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.

      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.

          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.

            Comments about XS Scuba Weight Belt:

            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.

              The material used to make the pockets on this belt is clearly inferior to that used on the same belt in previous years. It is very thin and mine started coming apart after just a few uses. Very disappointing.

              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.
              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.
              Shopper  Are these XS Scuba Single Tank Weight Pockets that are sewn together? if yes, how are they sewn together? if not, can I cut them apart to make individual pockets. The belt is less expensive than 8 XS Scuba Single Tank Weight Pockets. Thanks
              KEN K  Hello: Thanks for your interest in the dive gear mentioned above. I have used these belts for several years now and their GREAT !! It is a solid heavy nylon belt that has another belt of same lenth sewn onto it. Where a web belt can be threaded through giving it a balence and an almost nonexistance in the feel when wearing it. I highly recommend it with soft weights especially. The comfort is nothing like you've experienced before with a weight belt. As to cutting it, I wouldn't unless you would never need one or more of the pockets. You can simply choose not to put weight in one or more of the pockets. You'll never know the difference. Best Wishes and Hope you like your XS Belt !!! Ken Kirby IDC Staff Instr. Scuba Doo Dive & Travel Corryton, Tenn. 37721 (865)388 -5566
