What is the best filler material to use for my gear?

We recommend using playground sand. You can find this at any hardware store. Other options would be rubber mulch or pea gravel.

Does my order come with sand?

Our bags ship unfilled so that you can fill them to the weight level you desire, as well as to avoid high shipping costs. You now have the option to purchase a loaded filler for your sandbag, available at the product page. Otherwise we recommend going by your local hardware store and purchasing sand.

How do you fill up the weighted vest to max it out?

The APC Weighted Vest is designed to meet the general 14/20lbs configurations for all Crossfit style competitions. You can extend the weight to reach up to 40lbs by adding in steel shot or BB's into the fillers.
