Product Reviews

  1. Comfortable fit, easy to clean.

    Posted by jpa on 29th Apr 2019

    The vest fits nicely and is comfortable on the shoulders.
    Did a couple of short runs, a 4 hour hike, and few workouts which included double-unders, burpees, pushups,...
    Way more ergonomic than my other plate-based vest. This one doesn't get in the way when hinging at waist.
    Cleaning up the sweat was easy.

  2. It's a tank

    Posted by Brandon on 30th Jul 2017

    Upgraded to this over a decade-old Gold's Gym vest when they offered $35 for trade-in. Ran several times in 90+ degree Georgia heat, and this thing is a tank. Considerably more comfortable and compact compared to last vest. Highly recommended.

  3. Very good quality and fit.

    No problems or complaints. Bought it for Murph training but went with an additional ten pounds for thirty total. I thought it would be less comfortable than it is. Very good weight balance. I recommend the narrow shoulder version. Going to order another one so I don't have to haul this one through the airport when I train at my vacation home.

  4. Good value, great quality

    This vest is well constructed and all components are high quality. Finding the right level of tightness is a little tricky at first as you have to reach behind you to take the majority of slack out of the belt. Overall a great addition to my gear.

  5. Effective and very well-made

    Posted by Stag on 30th Apr 2016

    My background: Infantry Soldier in the Canadian Forces as well as private Maritime Security OCONUS
    Use: I purchased this vest with the intention of putting it through some rigorous workouts as it simulated the wearing of a plate carrier without actually wearing one in public. It has held up very well and makes me wonder how much better the construction of the V-FORCE vests could be as it's marketed as being tough than the V-MAX. It has remained close and tight to my torso as I go thru the workouts and hasn't shown any sign of wear despite being used on an almost daily basis.

    All in all, it functions very effectively as a training tool for those who want to simulate training in body armor without actually wearing body armor in public areas.

  6. Awesome Vest for Murph Wod

    Posted by James on 28th Apr 2016

    I bought this vest to train for the Murph WOD, I wanted something heavier than the 20lbs used in the WOD so I can train a little heavier, this 30llbs vest was just the ticket. It allows me to still move freely above my head and there is no bounce in it at all. Easy to change weights and great price.

  7. Awesome Vest

    Posted by Cris on 12th Apr 2016

    I purchased this vest to add to my four mile walking workout. This is the easiest and most comfortable vest I have own. I was amazed how easy it went together. Very comfortable on the shoulders and stays in place throughout my workouts.

  8. American quality

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jan 2016

    Best quality weight vests out there. I use it for workouts like insanity, military training, and hiking. Only thing i did notice is that the weights to have a slight bounce to them when doing insanity type workouts. Meaning the weights on the back will pat your back. Nothing you can't live with.

  9. best vest out there!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Mar 2015

    Hey all,
    Thanks for making this high quality vest. I will get years of use out of it. Fits like a glove and does not move around when going through the motions.
    And thanks for keeping it made in USA!
