Default Strongman Belt

Did a little reading through the belt sticky and found some good information but still would like opinions on strongman belts . What belt do you guys prefer for exclusively training strongman? Just considering getting a new belt so I figured I would really look around good first.

I'm by no means a strongman but I love my belt. A simple black leather one made by Golds that I picked up brand new for $25. I only use it for deadlifting or "stongman cadio" like this:

I like to use a combo of soft belt (rehband) and hard belt (leather). I use pretty much the soft belt for every event (besides stones) and then I use both belts for things like heavy deads, squats, yoke and farmer's, etc.

Rehband is a must. It is pricer then its counter parts but I have seen no soft belt better.

I agree with Craig, any hard leather/powerlifting style type belt combo works best.

I use a powerlifting belt. Though I have to admit I only use it for heavy yoke, conan's wheel and heavy rackpulls.
