In 1976 Jeff Egbert asked a soccer goalie in Germany how he developed incredible lateral speed? He said he used a weight vest. Later, Jeff's brother asked him to build him a weight vest for his track and field training. The first vest was built in 1981 and from there the sales took off.
In 2000 the company launched it's first website and they manufacture V-Force® V-Max™ Box® and WOD™ weight vests in the USA. The first trademark vest was called V-Max which was upgraded and improved. Box® is designed specifically for Crossfitters and gyms, it has a quick-adjust belt system (pat. pending) and wipe-down liner for multiple users. Our new WOD™ vests are made in the USA with better-than-import quality at a better-than-import price. V-Force® comes in full Camouflage and is the most durable of the weight vests on our site. Over the years, copy-cat companies have sprung up with cheap imported vests trying to sponge off the WeightVest.com look, but the final quality just can't be matched.
Our goal is to keep our company located in the USA and employ American workers. We appreciate our customers and are committed to providing the best made weight vest available. The family-owned business is located in Rexburg and Pocatello Idaho. We are proud of our true Lifetime Warranty, and will honor any defective product claim if any - immediately. We are registered with the Better Business Bureau with highest ratings. It's our goal to sell you the best weight vest on the market, that's our pledge to you. Thank you, Weightvest.com, Inc.
