Due to the different styles and belt options General Leathercraft reserves the right to alter any customizations to make sure the belt is functional. This includes our custom flag belts and all of our other belts. Additionally, thread used for stitching and custom embroidery are different and the colors may not match exactly. If you have questions about this policy please contact us before you purchase your belt.

Lead Time Notice

All embroidered/laser burned weight lifting belts ship within 6-8 weeks and non-embroidered weight belts ship within 4-6 weeks. No returns will be accepted without prior written authorization from General Leathercraft.
Order questions please contact us.

How to Measure

HOW TO MEASURE FOR YOUR WEIGHT BELTS: It’s very important to order the correct size for your weight belt. We cannot accept returns due to incorrect sizing. Additionally, we are unable to accept returns on custom belts. Please read for more information on our return policies.

All belts are made for right handed use, unless stated otherwise in belt notes.


These custom dyed lever belts by Pioneer are hand dyed using a professional dye in house. They are treated with a conditioner, polish, and sealant to maximize sheen and longevity. They are built using the same 100% Vegetable Tanned Sole Leather that we use on all of our belts. These are what we call the “Sophisticated Belt” on our social media outlets and are an awesome contrast to the embroidered custom belts that we offer. If you are looking for an old school- no frills belt that will last you a lifetime, this is the one for you! The Lever Belt version of the Custom Dyed Belts are 3″ or 4″ all the way around and your choice of thickness.

    I’ve had my 10mm dyed lever belt for a few weeks now, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Excellent craftsmanship and high quality all the way around. Pioneer belts are the only belts I will be using or recommending from now on. Will probably be ordering a 13mm lever at some point in the near future. You guys have earned a customer for life.

    This custom belt is exactly as I imagined. I have had this belt for a few months now and it works great. I really like the lever for releasing tension between lifts. No issues with lever holes deforming. 10cm is too wide for barbell dead lifts so I’m planning on getting a 3 inch soon. For all other lifts it works great.


    I’ve had my treated GLC belt for over one year, and couldn’t be happier with it. I ordered a custom width (3.25″) because my 4″ inzer always hit my ribs/hips at the bottom. So far the treated GLC belt has held up great, and only looks better with age. I ordered a second belt and there was a problem with my order–it was different from what I asked for, in size and finish. Fortunately, after a few emails, they refunded me my payment in-full, and just told me to keep the second belt. Honestly no complaints with their customer service or quality, great company, and great custom options if you’re looking for something specific. And now that they’ve streamlined their online ordering, it’s a no brainer. IMO these belts are in another league from anything else currently offered by other companies, and their treated leather will age with you, as you develop your lifting/bodybuilding skillset. Just measure your waist, and pull the trigger!

    My “daily driver” belt. It is absolutely beautiful and durable as hell. Quick turnaround(much quicker than the stated production time even during the Christmas season), and Matt kept me in the loop the whole way. Customer service is amazing as always. If I had to change one thing, I’d have gone 10mm instead of 13mm. I was overzealous and 13mm is probably just a hair too much belt for me, but it still broke in quick and is comfortable yet incredibly supportive.

    I ordered a custom dyed 4′ 10mm belt a few weeks back. Greg worked with me to ensure all the measurements, color and stitching was right. The belt arrived and looked beautiful but had a couple of scratches that looked a bit too obvious. I contacted Greg and he was quick to respond and take care of the matter. They made me a new belt and shipped it within 3 days of my inquiry. Now that’s amazing customer service! as far as the product goes, it’s quality you can see. It works great for me and I love the ease of having a lever vs buckle. I’d highly recommend it.
    I’m a customer for life!

    First I want to say their customer service is great. I needed to contact Pioneer a couple of times and both times they answered well within the hour. I got a 13mm and 4inch wide belt, untreated, dyed on the outside with fade, black edges and stitches. I asked for no suede and laser engraving on the outside, and a black lever. I’ve had the belt for two weeks now and it looks great and feels great. I’ve done all three powerlifting movements and some strongman axle and loglift and no discomfort, I just love it. I thought it would be a lot stiffer but is actually ok, and will probably only get better as I break it in. I love the use of the lever, it’s so much easier to get the belt tight. I’ve tried many other brands from friends and gyms and this pioneer belt is the shit.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about my belt ! Neither about the company ! Due to my error my belt would have a problem I caught on to it before it was made, emailed Matt! And he made sure my belt came out the way I wanted !

    First of two reviews, customer service: I placed my order yesterday, after looking at every picture ever posted by Pioneer or by lifters that use their belts (at least 3 times). After I cut and pasted different colors and designs together on PDFs. After driving my wife crazy for a month. Never felt so much stress on a purchase, but after over 100 hours of contemplation, I submitted my request. I wrote the owners a novel about why I chose the options I did with references to prior postings that I had drawn inspiration from (USE THE NOTES!). I was amazed to get a call from the owners the next morning to discuss some of the options and I can’t state how much this put me to ease (most of you out there probably have amazing imaginations when choosing designs, but I do struggle). Heartfelt thank you to the Pioneer team for their amazing support!
    Will be following up with a review of the product as well, but honestly, support has always ranked higher in my books. A+ all, and thank you!.
