The math works out to the cost being higher, but I often ignore that, and compare what the item can do to existing items of a comparable price.  I find the prices for stuff to be all over the place.  Doing so, the price of the lesser belt doesn't seem out of line, I'll have to think about the other two.

I immediately think of the Boots of Agile Leaping, from MIC, p. 76.  Though those require 5 ranks in Balance, they let you stand from prone as a swift action without provoking attacks of opportunity for a mere 600gp.  With that being the case, even if you double the price of the boots, 1200gp so you don't have the skill rank requirement would be fine, imho.
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.
