I got a 3rd belt, very different from the belts which are usually sold!
I remind you my 3 belts:
- Ch: Chinese belt, got in February 2014
- MS: My-Steel belt (German), got in February 2016
- HB: Hell's Belt (Belgian), got in January 2018
Adjustability: Ch > MS > HBChinese belts are made of screwed steel bands (which can't be unscrewed when the belt is locked): they can be adjusted on 10s of cm. My-Steel can be adjusted in the locking systems: I just have 3 cm of adjustability for the waist, and 1.5 cm on the crotch. My Hell's Belt is not adjustable at all.
Locks: Ch = MS > HBThese 3 belts are lovely, since they use padlocks. I hate integrated locks.
I say Hell's Belt's locks are worse, since they can move a lot: not only they could be easily destroyed, but they affect me a lot: if the lock goes on the wrong angle, it can give pain on my thigh.
I give My-Steel and Chinese the draw: both have drawbacks: My-Steel uses very specific locks, but they are much more protected than on the Chinese belts.
Strength: HB >> MS > ChDo I need to explain why the Hell's Belt is so strong?it is made out of very thick steel, and only steel.
Although the silicon of my My-Steel belt is worn out, the steel is much stronger on My-Steel than on Chinese.
Weight: HB >> MS > ChMy My-Steel belt is a bit heavier than the Chinese one. But they are both less than 1 kg (2 lb) each. They are too light to be felt. This is not the case of the Hell's Belt, which is 4 kg. A monster!
Comfort: drawI say comfort is a draw, since every belt has its problems about comfort. I will have to detail this article in the future.
Price: HB >> MS >> ChWell, this is one of the most important problems: how much these belts cost. A My-Steel belt costs about 700 EUR (the real price depends on the options you choose), whereas you can find Chinese belts for less than 200 EUR.
How much my Hell's Belt cost? I can't say. But if someone really wants to buy the one I am wearing, I would not sell it under 2 000 EUR.
Summary: HB > MS > ChIt is a very subjective comparison. I love all my belts, but I clearly prefer the Hell's Belt. It became my daily belt.
I don't wear my Chinese belt anymore, except for double-plugged desires. My My-Steel belt was my usual belt. It is almost worn out (due to intensive wearing), but I definitely recommend this brand!
I don't detail about plugs. I could, but plugs would deserve an other article.
Currently feeling: my breasts are having a very hard time in this armor. I feel hardened.
I have marks around my breasts (easy to see when I shift the skin). The belt gives me little marks (or it marks me under, but I have no way to check).
