Weight Lifting Belt - Ultra Premium Handmade Single Prong 4 inch wide


the highest point of achievement; a climax.

The Apex is without a doubt our finest belt, hand-crafted using the finest leathers, oils and metals. This isn't meant to compete with the world of mass-produced, sporting-goods-store weightlifting belts, but to offer a stronger, longer-lasting alternative for customers serious about strength training and investing for the long haul.

Although already broken in, the belt will fit the contours of your body over time and become even more comfortable, the leather will have softened up wonderfully and gained a unique patina. Width: 4"
- Color: Natural Brown
- Thickness: 10mm (Thickness Tolerance: +/- 2mm)
- Vegetable tanned premium quality real leather
- Single prong stainless steel silver roller buckle and rivets
- Industrial strength heavy duty stitching

Measure your waist between your ribs and hips (around the belly button). Pull tape tight for best measurement. Don't use your pant size to determine the size of your lifting belt

Small: 20"-30"
Medium: 26"-35"
Large: 31"-40"
X-Large: 36"-45"
XX-Large: 41"-50"

Lay flat and allow to fully dry post workout. Do not leave in direct sunlight. Apply a good quality leather conditioner to nourish and protect the leather


    Delivery Options

    For UK residents, delivery will be handled either by Royal Mail/DPD or dispatched from our Amazon warehouses and a flat rate of £5.00 is charged.

    For overseas orders, delivery will be handled either by DPD, Royal Mail or dispatched from our Amazon warehouses and a flat rate of £10.00 is charged. Royal Mail International delivery times can be found here

    Sometimes parcels get delayed which is out of our control, lost packages will of course be replaced or refunded. Please see our Terms and Conditions page for full info.

    Free Delivery

    Free delivery on UK orders over £50 (that’s almost half what you needed to spend before). Express delivery is a flat £5. Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands and Channel Islands will go through Royal Mail rather than DPD – Next day service is not available or guaranteed to these areas, but we send with Royal Mail 24 so there is a 93% chance (according to Royal Mail) that it will arrive in 24 hours. Please note, as per our terms and conditions, the next day service is not guaranteed, nor are you able to claim a refund on non-delivery next day. In the last 12 months 98.5% of our shipments with DPD were either delivered next day or a delivery attempt was made (i.e. if the item wasn’t delivered it was because the recipient was out). That means only 1.5% of items were either delayed or misplaced at the depot temporarily. For full info on your rights please see the Terms & Conditions page.

    Returns and Refunds

    If you are not happy with your order or you need to change something, please contact us immediately. In the unlikely event that the item is damaged or faulty we exchange any item for you at no extra charge for UK customers (you will need to cover postage of item sent back to us). For items where the incorrect product or sizing was ordered, we address this on a case by case basis depending on the size/weightOverseas customers will need to pay for postage of the replacement item. If an item is damaged or the wrong item was sent we will usually cover return postage.

    For a refund you will need to return your order to us within 21 days of receipt of your order. After this time you will no longer be eligible for a refund. We aim to process your refund the same week it arrives back with us.

    If you would like to view our full Terms and Conditions please follow this link.

    If you would like to exchange or refund a product/order that’s fine (provided it is before the 21 days as described above and in our Terms and Conditions). Contact us as soon as possible at

    Returns are done at your own cost. We would recommend UK customers sending 2nd class. If the postage packet is less than 1″ (25mm) thick it can be sent as a large letter, which will be cheaper, at around £1.19 (up to 250g). A shoebox size parcel will cost you around £2.80 to return (under 2kg). These prices are according to the Royal Mail website as of 12th January 2016. You are covered to a value of £20 insurance on this, so if you want extra piece of mind you can get your item sent with a signature at around an extra £1. Please note returning an order is at your cost so it is up to you to decide which service you opt for. If the item fails to arrive with us again that is for you to take up with Royal Mail. We are not responsible for lost returns.


    Please email us at with the product/size you would like and return your item(s) with a note inside specifying the changes. We will send out your replacement item once your order arrives back with us. If anything is out of stock we will either ring or email to see what you’d like to do. The exchange will be sent by us to you at our cost with Royal Mail 2nd class. If you’d like to have it sent by any other service you will be required to pay for that service.

    Returns / Refunds

    As above, please return to the address with a note inside asking for a refund. UK customers are covered under the UK government’s Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (formerly Distance Selling Regulations or DSR), which means if you’re not happy with your order you can return it for a refund. The time limit is set in our terms and conditions (currently 21 days from receipt of order). If you’re not sure just give us a call and we will let you know what’s what. You are again liable for the return postage cost, as per CCR and our T&C’s (which you will have signed at purchase). Please note DSR only applies to UK based customers and not business customers (public sending to their work address does not come under business customers, we understand if you’re buying a t-shirt and getting it sent your office the likelihood is it’s not a business purchase…).

    Bespoke/Custom Belt Orders

    Although we aim to fulfill within 6 weeks of mockup approval, as each belt is different, there can be instances were we exceed the 6 week lead time. This could be due to a number of reasons such as stitching quality and the complexity of the design. By buying a custom belt you accept these terms and that the 6 week lead time is not a guarantee and no refunds will be issued should we exceed this timeframe.

    Refunds are handled within 2 days of receipt of the returns.

    Parcels should be returned to:

    Gunsmith Fitness
    9 Newbury Avenue
