Soooooo..... anyone know where I can get (inexpensive) RAW gear for a meet I just entered that is coming up in 2 weeks?!

Do you know what you need? It depends on the federation a lot of times.

USAPL, I don't think it's required... belt, wrist straps, knee sleeves

USAPL Raw/Unequipped Standards
Raw/Unequipped lifting is defined in USAPL competition as using only the following gear and accessories as previously described above:

(a) Non-supportive singlet
(b) T-shirt
(c) Briefs
(d) Socks
(e) Belt
(f) Shoes
(g) Wrist wraps
(h) Single-ply neoprene knee sleeves without attaching and/or tightening mechanisms like Velcro, clips, or straps


This is what the federation site says. Now, noob question alert -- what are "briefs"? Why do you need them if you are wearing a singlet?

Awesome! You rock JB!

you cant wear knee wraps, the "briefs" they are refering to are underwear. Basically you can wear a singlet, underwear (only 1), bra (only 1), socks, shoes, and a belt. Belts have to be a certain shape.

Right, no wraps. I still want you to send them to me though ;) And thank you for clarifying this for me!
