    Default Weighted vests

    Here's my question,

    I need to find a source of weighted vests to be used in a red card walk test. Can anyone direct me in the right direction?

    We have some that hang too low, and are uncomfortable. (I know I know their not intended to be comfortable)

    I saw some one time that looked like a light weight vest with square weights in the vest, but I can't find the source.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    I know I have seen some ads for the vest in the Wildland Firefighter magazine. There have been a couple ads there.

    Stay safe,

    Try a company called "The Pack Shack". I think they sell the 435 pound training vests.

    My error. Try a company called the Bagmaker. I think their website is www.bagmaker.com.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I did go to the Bagmaker web site and ordered their vest.

    Thanks again
