Great vest for the price. Makes my quads burn!
I bought this for training during running and to add some weight when climbing stairs. I considered a women’s specific version but the prices were crazy. This vest was reasonably priced and had good reviews so I thought I’d give it a try. The first thing I noticed were the extra weights the company included in the package. Granted, they’re only sand bags, but it was a nice gesture and makes my 40lb vest a 60lb vest. When I put it on, I noticed the dual straps hold it very securely and lock it down pretty good. I expected a lot more slipping around but it didn’t move very much. I was also expecting it to constrict my breathing, a problem I’ve had with other weight vests. Maybe it’s because the sand pouches are softer than solid metal weights, but I actually found this pretty comfortable to wear. I have worn it numerous times for stair climbing and other than the brutal burning in my quads, I hardly noticed it was there. A sure sign it was going its job!!
A good value with a caveat
Just posting initial impressions. Seems pretty durable and a good value for the price. Velcro straps are large and should last awhile. If you are used to training with the old school military flak jackets, then this will be right up your alley. If you are used to the new ones or are expecting something akin to a backpacking setup, you will be disappointed. The waist strap is external not internal, so your hips are not bearing any of the load. It is all on your shoulders. You may want to reduce the weight accordingly. Bottom line is your shoulders are going to get tired before your legs, so whether this is a good fit for you really depends on what your focus is.
What’s even better about this vest is that the weights can be …
I bought a 40lb vest in order to work on lower body workouts such as squats, lunges, bouncing lunges, and more. Typically i’d just put a barbell on my shoulder and use that work my rigorous workouts. I felt that at the end of the day my shoulders would hurt more than they should, and it also prevented me from working out effectively.
This is a great quality vest. The sand bags are easy to insert and remove. I am 4’11” and the vest’s Velcro belt is falling way below my waist line. I was able the fix that by adding another belt at my waist line. Now the vest fits perfectly and I wear it even while doing chores in the house-it’s that comfortable.
Good, a little big, 20 pound vest
I bought the 20 pound vest. I’m 5’3” about 125 pounds. I work out from time to time but wanted something for the mornings when I walk my dogs. I thought I should go with the 40 pound so I could work my way up but decided to go with the 20 pound. I have used it a few times now and only on the 10 pound weight, it was the right amount of weight for me.
If you are patient and work your way up to the maximum weight it works much better than jumping right to the heaviest
This weighted vest works as advertised. The only problem I had with it was even with the shoulder pads it would dig into my shoulders during exercise. That problem might be to my body structure though. I started at the maximum weight so I haven’t adjusted to it yet. If I get to a point where the vest doesn’t bother me while exercising I’ll revise this review and give it a five.
Adjustable weight vest fits fine for petite body type
I’m 5’0″, under 100lbs, and was a little skeptical that this vest would adjust to my size. No problem. The velcro makes it very possible for it to be snug to my body. I’ve worn it for up to an hour at a time. Would prefer having the one with shoulder pads, but the only ones in stock when I ordered did not have them. Great for using with squats and for walking.

Fits well. I am 5’2″ woman and it fit perfect. You can take the weights out if you want to.
Works well for running, easy weight adjustment and distribution
A decent vest which is adjustable for both size and weight solidly constructed. I use the vest for running and have a short and stocky build – for fit reference purposes, I’m 5’9″ about 190 lbs, 46″ around the chest and 34″ at the waist. I generally run between 3 and 10 miles at a go and on the longer runs I haven’t noticed any knee or back pressure. I have experience running with other weighted vests, flak jackets and body armor, I bought the 40lb version and have the shoulder pads installed.
I love this weight vest
talk about beastly. I love this weight vest, but using the al the weight is tough. I typically use 20 pounds, and I do a lot of body weight exercises: pushups, pull ups, and TRX. It fits well, and the velco has stayed in tact. The weights are sand and are easy to get in and out. The only thing is you might want to get a shoulder strap bc this thing can irritate your shoulder while working out. Great buy though!
