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!!
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. There are 4 pockets in the front and back allowing you to easily slip the 2.5 weights out to adjust it perfect for you. The Velcro that wraps around it is very strong. One long velcroed pocket at the top for your phone and a little spot for a water bottle at the bottom. My boyfriend who is 6 foot wore the 20 pounds for a run, he said it fit pretty snug but did move just a little. He also mentioned he would of gotten more weight for himself however it slowed him down a little. Cons- it’s not the most comfortable on the shoulders without pads. I also wish the arm straps were adjustable. It looks really big on me, I don’t think I would run in it because I wouldn’t be able to make it snug enough.
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. I am 5′ 6″ and weigh 140 lbs. The weight vest fit perfectly, the shoulder pads that add additional cushion and support. What’s even better about this vest is that the weights can be removed from their sockets. If I feel like doing light workouts I use about 24lbs, then increase to 32 and 40. Lastly, the sand bags are high quality and look quite durable. It’s great to have received this for such a decent price with high quality and durability.
Good for the price but needs improvement

What I like: the vest is not quite as bulky as I thought it might be. The weights can be evenly distributed on the front and the back. The weights slide in and out of the vest slots fairly easily and have flaps to secure them. Each weight sand bag is contained within a strong nylon shell, so no worry of them tearing and spilling. The price seems reasonable; other weighted vests can cost at least twice as much and do basically the same thing. What I don’t like: the velcro belt does not really go low enough, so it is difficult to tightly secure close to the waist. That means the weight can sag onto the floor when doing prone exercises (like pushups or planks). The belt is designed to only be fully by secured around the chest (I have the 40lb vest). It really needs an extra belt or strap for the lower vest, at least one that can optionally be attached. I am a slim guy, the velcro belt does not pull tight enough to prevent this. Also the phone pocket is not really a pocket. It is just the top flap that secures the weight. A phone can slip out of the sides if you are not careful.

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.

Military Style Vest

This vest is perfect for weighted training. Personally, I like to use it for power walking on FLAT terrain and short sprints. The material appears to be strong and of quality grade. But if you’re expecting military quality, you will be disappointed. I can honestly say the vest is built strong and it does what it suppose to do, which is condition you over time and make you stronger. Do not overexert yourself in this vest and MAKE SURE you get the shoulder pads! It’s worth the money. Train hard and train safe. I love the product and I highly recommend.
