Stone lifting vests
- Custom-made stone-lifting vests -
Stone lifting vests are custom-made for athletes’ bodies and needs, and they are individually made. The vest protects the body, holds the stone, and makes the lifter’s strength more efficient. It is the most important part of the entire lifting equipment (vest, pants, and cloth sash).
The shape and the thickness of the vest depend on the athlete’s body and the stone shape they are going to lift (rectangular, cylinder, cubic, round, or irregular stone).
We spent a month searching for materials, measuring the composition of old vests, collecting information on other stone lifters, and making changes until we got our model. Our 301K vests respect the classic design but with some new touches, materials, and colors.
THE EVOLUTION OF THE VESTS
In the beginning, the vests were white, we don’t know if the material they were using was cotton or linen. However, during the 80s, they started using a blue cotton fabric from Bergara (Gipuzkoa) called Mahoia (nankeen). Nowadays, we use new synthetic materials.
Beginning of the 20th century.

Steps to make a vest:
Appointments are held in the 301k shop but we accommodate the lifter’s needs. If the lifter has a previous vest, we ask them to bring it. The process can take around a month, depending on the number of orders.
Stone lifting pants
We have created pants that go with the lifter’s legs’ needs, and depending on the shape of the stone they lift, we put more padding. The front of the pants is polyamide fabric and the back is elastic.
Long and short pants, with or without Velcro, with or without padding,… ask for your size.
