There well good stokey, make the circuits much harder. The RDX vest is pretty comfortable doing most things to be honest. I've been doing the " Spartacus 3.0 " workout with RM exercises and it's pretty hard going. Squat jumps burpees are disgusting in it. I've yet to try it out doing hill sprints because im resting my shins for a week, covered way to much mileage last week. Can't wait to hit the hills with it.

I?ve got a sandbag I made simply by getting:

Plastic Contractor/rubble bags (BnQ)
Tie wraps (BnQ)
Zip lock bags (Aldi)
a Hessian sack (free of a local shop)
sand (BnQ)

Measured out 2kg of sand into a zip lock bag, then double bagged that, did that 30 times and then chucked them into the tough plastic rubble bags, tie wrapped the end of that and triple bagged that making sure the opening where at opposing ends.

Then put that into the Hessian sack and used a few tie wraps to tie it all off.

Lasted me a few years of regular rough use.

This time I?m buying a cheep army duffle bag instead of the Hessian sack and wont be zip locking the sand. My initial reason behind zip locking was so I could alter the weight. However I never felt the need.

Average, not a huge ammount.

Think about comparing it to your bodyweight. Im ~90kg (give or take :p) so 10kg is ~11% of my total bodyweight.

The heaviest weight vests usually come in at about 40lbs or roughly 20kg.
