Warrior West 18 – LBT-WTV (Weight Training Vest)

Thursday, April 19th, 2018


Looking to offer an alternative to working out in your armored plate carrier, LBT worked with the fitness community to develop a functional/stable weight vest capable of handling the stress of a high intensity workout.


The weight vest can hold standard 5 or 10 lb circular plates that can be found at almost any gym/fitness center, they also partnered with Sorinex to develop weight plates specific to the shape of the vest that will come in 5/8/10 lbs plate options, the plates can be purchased with the vest or without.


Unlike most weight vests, the LBT-WTV also comes with an elastic compression strap to keep the weight vest stable during running and inverted exercises.


The LBT-WTV will be launched later this month via LBTINC.com, just in time for those of you training for this years Murph challenge.

Although it’s less than 1″ in diameter, the Northern Star Fire Compass will alert you to your directional heading no matter what orientation it’s in. You could be leaving my sideways and the compass’ lights will indicate one of eight cardinal directions via NEWS as well as color.

Warrior West 18 – Titan Retention

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

I found Titan Retention in the Phokus Research Group booth. The concept (and small business) were created by a Team Guy who wanted a better mousetrap. In this case, his mousetrap was a weapon retention device.

Titan Retention uses a ratchet system to retain weapons and equipment with 500 lbs of force. It’s also PALS compatible and your gear is easy to access thanks to the Austrialpin Cobra buckle. It sounds heavy, but it weighs just 9 oz.

Offered in multiple colors, visit www.titanretention.com for more info.
