It doesn't seem that expensive.
yeah but I'm so sexy that I get the midget turned on and I get tired of feeling midget boners as I'm climbing stairs.
the 40lb ones at sports authority seem like they would be more flexible. they're made with small finger sized weights instead of actual weight plates.
plus the sports authority ones come with the weights. $100 for vest and weights.
why pay $130 for something that doesnt even come with the weights? you then have to go pay another $30 for the plates to put in that vest. looks like you could go to walmart and buy some velcro and a cheap fishing vest for $20 and build your own plate-holding-vest.
I'd buy an Xvest b4 I'd buy one of those things.
Thanks for input. All the other ones were super expensive so I thought I was saving on shipping.
Check out your local Sports authority or maybe even the bigger Wal Marts like someone else suggested, they'll have some reasonably priced units so I wouldnt worry. Besides 40lbs will honestly be enough, it'll take some getting used to if you plan on wearing it under clothes or something. O yea how DO you plan on using it?
personally i'd rather make a sled, have you looked into those at all?
I've always wanted to make a canvas weight vest that can hold 45lb plates. put about 4 in the back pocket and 2 in the front and see if I could do squats
I just made mine out of wood Hell of a lot cheaper, I think it cost like 15 dollars I don't remember anymore. Wood + Floor flange + 2"x12" Nipple + some kind of hook or door handle to attach rope/tow strap to, and wala!
EDIT: of course i'll obviously have to replace the wood sometimes but hey, its working for now. If you drag on grass it probably wouldn't be a problem though, just attach something to the end at an angle so you're not tearing the grass up.
