The Marseillas Weight Belt is an essential for any scuba or free diver. The rubber belt will not flip or slip while in use. The belt will also not slide around the body, so it is able to be positioned off your diaphragm and low around the hips, for ease of breathing and reduced back fatigue.
Nylon weight belts don’t have the same flexibility as the rubber belts, and so will not compensate for your wetsuit compressing as you dive. The rubber belt will stop your weights from shifting and your belt from moving.
The stainless steel marseillas buckle is the safest quick release buckle on the market. The tilted check pin is designed so that after release the pin will not reengage.
