Have you ever experienced problems with a weight belt becoming loose? Yes, when using a rented nylon belt and only when exiting after a dive. I use a old style rubber belt that can be streached on very tight, and will compensate for depth. I don't remember who the manufactuer is, but it has a simple steel buckle system that just flips open.

Does the potential safety aspect of this occurrence concern you?

Would you be interested in receiving more information about a more positive weight belt that could avoid this problem?

Would you consider purchasing such a weight belt?

Given that a standard weight belt costs approximately $10, how much would you be willing to pay for such a weight belt?
