Item Description

Freedive Weight Belt (Rubber) with Quick Release


Hey Guys, My freedive belts are made by the exact same factory as the expensive brands.

They are available direct from MAKO for a lot less.

High Performance Gear – Direct From MAKO – No Dive Shop Markup!”

Dive Safe,


The MAKO Spearguns Rubber Freedive Weight Belt is depth compensating and allows for expansion while breathing up at the surface.

The quick release buckle allows for fast ditching.

One size fits all. Pre drilled holes allow for custom trimming to divers desired required length.

Rubber freedive weight belts accept all standard lead weights. However, with some vinyl coated weights, the slit is not wide enough to accept a rubber freedive weight belt.

Warning: There are some freedive weight belts on the market that DO NOT have the offset quick release feature.

This means that in an emergency, when you pull (with one hand) on the hanging belt strap, the pin does not automatically release. This is very dangerous.

With our rubber freedive belt, the pin DOES release automatically by pulling on the hanging strap (one hand operation).

Compare our freedive weight belt to any other weight belt on the market. Our weight belt is by far one of the best on the market. And, be sure to compare the stretch of the belts. The belts lacking the one handed quick release feature do not stretch nearly as much as the MAKO Spearguns belt. Our rubber freedive belt includes the offset quick release feature. It has more stretch and costs less.

NOTE: Install your lead before trimming. Rubber belt is 53 inches long and can be cut to size.


To our valued customers:
MAKO Spearguns recognizes that diving (both freediving and SCUBA) are potentially dangerous activities. We have all heard of tragic accidents where a diver is found on the bottom while still wearing a weight belt. We hope and pray that should any of our customers find themselves in a situation where ditching a belt may be necessary, that there is no delay and the belt is dropped immediately.

In many situations a belt is recoverable, however if your MAKO Spearguns belt and lead weights or belt reel are ditched (and lost) in a diving emergency…. I will replace it free of charge.

The last thing we want is our customers considering the cost of a lost belt in an emergency. The only thing we ask is that the individual shares with us (and our friends and customers) some sort of write-up about how the situation developed and how it was resolved. That way, we can all learn and be reminded to keep safety in the forefront of our minds.

Dive safe,

    weight belt

    Posted by Thomas Blandford on Nov 29th 2021

    Too early to tell if I am going to really like the belt as I have dived with it yet. However, the quality is good and I was impressed with the belt buckle. I hope my weights will fit on the belt. On another item: I love your vest weight belt. I would, however, change the size or quality of the plastic buckles. They don't always "click" when fastened. I was initially concerned about how long they would last. Over a year now and lots of water time in the pool. Outstanding piece of dive gear.

    Works well to distribute the weights evenly

    While dry, the weights absolutely stay where I put them on the belt. Haven’t used wet yet. Also seem like they’ll be less “catchy” on the kelp but time will tell.

    This belt is heavy duty and looking forward to using it. The only downside was that I had to get new weights since the nylon belt I was using that was given to me is quite a bit thinner the weights which were also given to me only fit on the nylon belt not on the new rubber one. So its a bit of a bummer, but having a belt that won't slide around on me like the nylon one makes it worth it.

    Just what I needed for Freediving, nylon belts just don't stay in place.

    Weight belt

    Posted by Ching H Chan on Jan 29th 2021

    This weight belt is way better than the non rubber belt i had for scuba, the belt will keep in place little to no movement after my dive. Very solid n robust belt that if you are not getting from Mako, probably will cost double of the price.

    Rubber (Marseilles style) freediving weight belt

    Posted by Daniel E. on Oct 27th 2020

    This belt makes all the difference compared to nylon belts. Tighten till it’s just snug around waist, then push down around hips/glutes. This will free your abdomen to breath, and the belt won’t slide off because of compression of your abdomen. The way to go!!! And all the unbelievable stories about Mako’s quick great service are true. Thanks y’all.
