    Default V-max weight vest

    If you have been looking for a good vest to use in training for your pack test I am selling my 50lb short v-max.
    It is in perfect condition because I only got the chance to use it a couple of times. Now I travel a lot and just don't have the space to bring it with me. I am selling it for $140 ($120 + $20 for shipping). I thought I would post on a couple of boards before I try try and ebay it.

    Talking Interested

    Hi there,

    Are you still selling the vest? I am interested but I am in Australia so I would probably have to buy it from you through ebay. Please contact me at bajon_99@yahoo.com.au - thanks, Nicole

    What kind of weight vest does everyone like the best? I really need to buy one, but would like to find a somewhat cheaper alternative to the V-max vests. Maybe even something home made you might use? Thanks, have a safe holiday!

    Default Hello

    Hi,

    If there is a local gym with a StairMaster StepMill it would help you a lot. That seems to be the hardest part of CPAT for most people and it takes a bit to balance on moving stairs. I trained until 5 minutes with 70lbs didn't kick my tail. You'll need some gas in the tank for the other events but if you have moderate upper body strength you'll do fine.

    The stepmill is almost all Ive been doing for the last month or so, so hopefully it helps out! The only added weight I used was carrying 35# weights while i did it. Test is this Sunday, wish me luck!

    I'm not sure who this idiot is but his comment is a direct cut and paste from my response in the weight vest conditioning for CPAT thread.
