The best weight belt for freediving

Weight belt
The Fins and Foam weight belt is made of very stretchy silicone which stretches tight over your hips and stays there. It keeps your weights in place, and has a Marseilles buckle for quick one-handed release.

What's good about this weight belt

  • It is stretchy
    The best weight belts are made of stretchy silicone, rather than rubber or canvas. This lets your belt stick tight to your hips, rather than riding up over your waist as soon as you turn upside down.
  • It is sticky
    Silicone belts stick to your weights, making sure they don't slide around when you dive.
  • The buckle is easy to release one-handed
    The pin-in-hole style buckle on this belt is easy to release one-handed in an emergency.

What to avoid when buying a weight belt

  • Canvas scuba belts
    Canvas scuba belts are cheap, but they fall off easily, let your weights slide around, and will ride up around your waist the first time you turn upside down.
  • Clip-style buckles
    The clip style of buckle releases accidentally more easily than the pin-in-hole style of buckle that the Fins & Foam weight belt uses.
  • Rubber belts
    Rubber belts are the older style of freediving belts. They are durable, but not as flexible as silicone, so they won't stick as well to your hips.
