Product Description

FREE shipping to USA, APO, FPO destinations

Again, the 50 lb. short weight vest is great for CPAT testing and training for fire departments. Over 1000 fire departments in the USA  have this weight vest for their firefighters. Most firefighters order this vest with wide shoulders, but for bodyweight workouts where your arms go over head like in the pull up, we recommend the narrow shoulder option. Top combat challenge firefighters have trained for years with this model. It's a weight vest that is made to last your lifetime, that's my personal guarantee. I started selling weight vests online in 2000, and have continued to manufacture them here in the USA. Ask the competion where there's is made. V-Force is more reinforced than V-Max to give you extra durability under extreme conditions. We started getting requests for camouflage weight vest designs and we followed through with a line of great looking weight vests. Whether you are a hunter or military, we have a camo that will be just right for you needs. We are continuing to add new colors as we find them. Not only is V-Force the most coveted weight vest for its durability, fit and funtion, but also for its great looks! Thanks, Jeff

  1. V-Force 50LB Short Weight Vest

    Posted by Nathan on 12th Nov 2014

    The vest seems to be very well made. So far, the quality is just what they said it would be. I will write another review after 6 months of use.

  2. Super Charge

    Posted by Luis Laluz 1989 Mr America on 16th Oct 2014

    As a retried U.S. Army Paratrooper it Provides great strength and endurance. The best natural way of workingout. First time using and already feel and see results. I can see it will maintain my physique and strength for years to come. The vest V Force is the best.

  3. Quality

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Sep 2014

    I looked at several different forms for the best weight vest and pretty much all of them said to check out weightvest.com. When I received the vest I was not let down. The quality put into this thing is great. Individual weight bars are secured in several different pockets for easy adjustment in weight. The velcro that secures the vest so it does not move works well and does not move when doing work outs. Overall I would recommend this product.

  4. 50 lb. short weight vest.

    Posted by Ducquang Nguyen on 11th Sep 2014

    I've had many vests in my life, the short heavier weight vests are the best for bodyweight workouts. They don't sag like the weight jackets or the long weight vests. I found this to be an ideal addition for several of my workouts.

  5. Very impressed!

    Posted by James Contreras on 15th Jul 2014

    I just received my 50lb V-force vest and I am very impressed. I shopped around sporting good stores and I am thankful I did shop around and waited as this vest far exceeds the quality and weight balance of the ones I was looking at. I strongly recommend weightvest.com. You may find a cheaper vest but as they say, you get what you pay for! Thank you for the great vest!

  6. Built Like a Tank

    Posted by Bob Kogan on 9th Jun 2014

    I took the recommendation of MGySgt Paul Roarke in his excellent book, Corps Strength, to purchase a vest from weightvest.com. His advice was completely rock solid. My fifty pound V-Force arrived quickly and was very well packaged for the trip. The quality of its materials and construction are top-notch. The attention to detail is outstanding. It's going to be a really tough job to wear this one out anytime soon. I'm glad I decided to shell out a few more bucks and buy American. It's not even a contest ... there is absolutely no comparison between this vest and the cheap foreign-made junk that's out there. Get one. You won't regret it for a minute.

  7. 5 Stars

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Jun 2014

    Strong and durable just like the description says. It is comfortable to wear. I definitely recommend the sweat liner to go with it. I purchased the vest with narrow shoulders and it works great for pull ups and overhead movements. I use this vest for P90x workouts and Insanity and Crossfit. I use it to intensify my non traditional training days when I may go for a hike outdoors. You get what you pay for! This is definitely top quality.

  8. Best weight vest I have found

    Posted by mc on 7th Jun 2014

    I currently own 3 weight vests from other manufacturers. Since receiving my V-force there is absolutely no comparison. This vest is solid, stable, easy to use, and the sweat liner is great. The adjustments keep the vest in place with runs and while jumping. The narrow shoulders allow OH movements so pull-up and burpee motions are only slightly limited. The vest color I chose was Orange and the reflector strip is adequate but seems like it was an after-thought. I would like to see the reflector strips sewn into all weight panel covers to increase visibility. Overall fantastic vest, definitely worth the money. If this vest ever wears out I will definitely purchase another - Thank you!

  9. super comfortable

    Posted by Unknown on 28th May 2014

    This vest sits perfect on your upper body and gives you a workout like you wouldn't believe.

  10. The most comfortable you can be while being miserable

    Posted by Ryan on 6th May 2014

    I ordered the 50 lb. V-FORCE short weight vest. It arrived 7 days later. I had been using other weight vests and plate carriers until I borrowed a friend's V-FORCE and that is when I fell in love with the product. It being American made is just icing on the cake. Most vests tend to bounce on my diaphragm when I run, which causes me to feel like throwing up after awhile which in turn causes me to question my decisions that I have made. My V-FORCE vest not only leaves my diaphragm to do it's job mostly unimpeded, but it also allows me to tighten it without leaving me feel like I am wearing a girdle on my ribs. I have the narrow shoulder straps for range of motion and even though they are only about 3" in width, my shoulders and traps don't feel as raw or exhausted as they have with other vests. The craftsmanship is extraordinary and the weights are easy to take out and then reluctantly put back in. Out of all the times I have decided it would be a good idea to put a considerable amount of weight on my frame and punish myself, I would say this vest has made it the most enjoyable.
