I never heard reason #2 claimed by anyone of standing in either PL or OL.

The best lifting coaches and docs in the US are at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, and a look around the facility shows belts everywhere. In OL, I doubt they'd even let you train without one.

10-4 on leather over nylon, but care is important. The leather must be kept water-resistant or it will become sweat soaked repeatedly and stink to high heaven plus get moldy. (Impossible to un-do) Lotion type treatments will soften the leather and let it stretch, though, defeating its support function. Answer? Use only a paste-style, wax-based treatment like Obenauf's.

When in doubt, wear the belt. It's always easier to prevent an injury than to cure one. If you are squatting heavy, wrap the knees, too.

Hey guys, I appreciate all the great advice.

I have a choice between a 4" or 6"; I want the thicker one, right?
Not necessarily. It depends on the distance between your hip blades and rib cage when in a full, compressed squat. Try before you buy. (a 6" belt can---and will--actually cut you if it's too wide.)
