V-MAX Features

Built for your workouts so you can more quickly burn fat, build muscle, and intensify any exercise.

Perfectly balanced and adjustable

Evenly distributed weight in the front and back. Each weight is a solid 2.5 LB rounded cast iron bar. Easily remove weights by lifting the flaps and sliding them out of their pocket.

The open side design allows you to work out a bit cooler and not be confined. The belts expand with your breathing while holding your vest in place. Your vest won't sag, rip, or stretch over time.

Fully padded panels and shoulders make your vest as comfortable as possible.

Back View

Wear it how you like

Set your belt positions once and easily remove and put back on your vest without further adjusting. The hooks on your padded shoulders can connect to a hydration pack.

    These vests are very well made. We have a few of these vests for use in physical fitness testing for our wildland firefighting crews. They have all withstood the test of time and heavy use.

    Great quality weight vest. I wear it while walking my dogs and doing the step mill at the gym. Fits comfortably, weights are easy to remove to adjust desired workout weight.

    Awesome vest

    I love this product. It’s very easy to use and gets the job done. I’m using it for fire training and definitely gets your prepared. The only problem I’ve had was the front clip came un-sewed but works without it! Great product!

    Great, Solid Product

    Posted by Bill on 28th Sep 2018

    This thing is awesome. It's very well made, the weights are easy to remove, and it just feels solid. I've been using it to up the intensity of my body weight workouts and it's definitely done just that! A great addition for someone who stays away from traditional gym workouts and prefers calisthenics.

    Great weight vest

    Posted by Geoff on 21st Mar 2018

    I love this weight vest. I work for the fire department and i use weight vests for hiking and stair climbing. I have owned four weight vests, but this is the cream of the crop. We actually use this same vest for our physical agility test. It’s a little bit more than other cheaper ones on the market, but the quality and build is worth it.
