Belt question

I need more weights for pullups/dips. I no longer have my weighted vest. A belt that would handle 50-80lbs of plates. I grew out of my 40lbs vest.

Is it possible to use the same belt for squats? For pressure and support. From my research it seems that I need two different belts. But for now a belt for weights is more important.

Which one? Feel free to suggest other ones.

get the cheaper one. Day belt with multipurpose isn't worth a damn when you're using it for it's actual function on a lift.

That's what I thought. But cheaper belt reviews say people were having issues using 80lbs. I need a belt that I can use for the next couple of years.

Better one has a shorter chain, cannot put 45lbs plates. God damn it, why no one thinks about a good product before making it.

What does everyone here use to add weights to their pullups/dips?

I use one of my regular belts with a small chain and carabina. And I don't use plates I use dumbbells bcuz they're easier to move around than a bunch of plates.

Why not use your vest and a plate?

Damn that's hardcore. Actually this would be a great business for someone to build and sell, compete with belts.

There is no hardware store close by where I'm. And it will take time to make this setup right. But I think I'll order the parts online with Amazon prime.

I don't have the vest after my cross country move. I need to get something portable without weights.
