Perfectly balanced and adjustable

Evenly distributed weight in the front and back. Each weight is a solid 2.5 LB rounded cast iron bar. Easily remove weights by lifting the flaps and sliding them out of their pocket.

The open side design allows you to work out a bit cooler and not be confined. The belts expand with your breathing while holding your vest in place. Your vest won't sag, rip, or stretch over time.

Fully padded panels and shoulders make your vest as comfortable as possible.

Set your belt positions once and easily remove and put back on your vest without further adjusting. The hooks on your padded shoulders can connect to a hydration pack.

    VForce Basketball Weight Vest

    Posted by Oliver Dexter on 7th Nov 2019

    Vest is expensive, but it’s well built and mine came with the sweat liner installed since I also ordered it. I would recommend this vest to anyone and so far it’s holding up great and the liner is doing it’s job too.

    I did purchase the sweat liner separately and suggest you buy both if you sweat a lot !

    Amazing product

    The weight vest is very sturdy, durable and you just by the feel of the vest you can tell it will last forever. It fits nice and snug so no bouncing when doing cardio exercises as well as it lets me get full range of motion with pull / push exercises without limiting the exercise or movement. I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it!!

    Best of the best

    I compared this vest against all its competitors, and definitely chose right. I got this for CrossFit m, and have completed Murph with it on and many other WODs. You do need help
    The first time to get the straps setup, but once they’re on you’re set.

    Excellent, BUT

    Posted by Dale on 20th Aug 2018

    Everything about this vest is excellent...however, being a smaller framed guy and wanting a good range of motion I opted for the smaller width shoulder straps. If I could change one thing it would be to have the wider straps. No fault of the vest,, but I find 40lbs on the thinner straps isn’t worth the range of motion gains. Depending on the exercise and duration of time wearing the vest it can really start to cut in over the shoulders. Other than that, the fit and function and even the quality is outstanding. Sizing it doesn’t take long either and everything tucks away neatly with no buckles or straps hanging off.

    Amazing investment

    This weightvest is comfortable, sturdy, and incredibly easy to maneuver in. On top of all that you look like a total savage wearing it. So glad I got this thing. It’s an amazing tool in my fitness arsenal. Highly recommended

    Most motivational purchase ever!

    Posted by Calisthenics_man_dan on 14th Aug 2018

    I did my first workout with the 40lb in. I maxed out and removed 20 lbs. Started my workout over again. Maxed out and removed the vest. I was able to do an entire 3rd round of exercises! The best workout I've ever done in over 20 years!!!!

    Top quality fabric and materials. So far I don't see this thing falling apart for years and years to come.

    One critique as there is always at least one......the cleaning process is easy but I can see the smell issue arising if you skip a few cleanings or just sweat really heavy with lots of use. No getting around good hard nasty sweaty work.......

    Absolutely Stellar

    Posted by Brett Aquila on 31st Jul 2018

    I've been using this vest for a few weeks now and I'm thrilled with it. I honestly don't know anything you could do to make it better. It fits as snug as you want but very comfortable and the weight distribution feels great. The materials definitely seem military grade. I'm a climber so I needed something I could reach with for pull-ups and rock climbing and this vest works perfectly. There's no restriction in my movement at all. Everything stays tight and the weight stays close to your body. I also use it for one-legged balancing exercises and no matter what position you put yourself in this vest doesn't move. It stays locked on tight. I couldn't come up with a single improvement if you paid me to. It's just really well designed.

    1.5 years later--still the best

    Posted by GDL on 28th Jul 2018

    I've had this weight vest for 16 months now. I've used other vests that work ok, but I actually LIKE wearing this one. It feels snug, even when I'm jumping rope and doing burpees. If I only have weights in top row back, I can still do sit ups and use the squat machine. The vest doesn't hinder pull-ups or many of the stretches I do. It's durable, showing no wear, just as sturdy as when I bought it. I highly recommend this product--and the super hanger. I also recommend the company for its service, which has been excellent. And after I made my purchases, I wasn't continually getting spammed by the company, pestering me to buy more.
