    Best Vest for Murph

    Posted by Ash on 11th Jun 2018

    I ordered the 40 lb vest for Murph. I've done Murph 4 times now and this is easily the most comfortable weighted vest I've ever worked out in. It's also the easiest vest to get on and off. Adjusting the weight by 2.5 lbs takes no time and it's nice to add and take off weight depending on the workouts I'm doing. I love that it's and ID company too, bonus points for that!!

    The quality of the vest and removable weights is superb!

    I purchased the 40 lb. basketball vest with the kryptek typhoon camo print. The cool factor is off the charts with the fabric print options available for these vests. I have a lot of other gear in kryptek typhoon and have been looking at this vest for months before I finally purchased it. I should have got one a long time ago! It beats all of the other vests I've owned or used in the past. The build quality, comfort, and ease of adjust-ability makes this the best vest I've ever used. The basketball version has a 2.5" shoulder length and is small enough not to interfere with my shoulder when doing exercises like pushups or pull-ups. I also use the vest for things like shadow boxing and using gymnastic rings. The Velcro straps makes it easy to keep the vest tight to your body so it doesn't move or slip around. I can do exercises on a pull-up bar such as skin the cat and also practice handstands without the vest slipping or moving at all. It's truly versatile for all kinds of different exercises and definitely puts everything you do while training to the next level! I've already made some significant gains from using this vest! These vests feel and look so good that you will use it more often than anything else. I always look forward to my weight days now because I get to use this vest. It's that awesome! I would definitely recommend buying one of these vests. Just make sure you measure your shoulders and pick the vest that will fit and work best for you. The basketball version is 2.5" and works best for my body size for training martial arts and calisthenics. It doesn't interfere with my shoulders rotating. The regular short vest with the narrow shoulder length would probably feel more comfortable wearing but I think it would cover too much of my shoulders. But I do plan on going with that option when I buy the 60 lb vest with the mandrake print once I get to that level and need 20 more lbs to train with. I will probably need a wider shoulder length on the 60 lb vest to displace the weight around the shoulders better for comfort. The 40 lb basketball vest is all I need for now. I can also choose to add plated weights to a weight belt if I want because the short vest doesn't cover my waist. No waist interference from the vest so you can easily do a variety of abdominal and leg exercises while wearing the vest. The price made me wait to buy one but after owning the vest for a few weeks I feel like the purchase was worth every penny!

    Taking training to the next level

    Posted by Antonio on 1st May 2018

    First time wearing the vest to the gym, 3 people asked where I got it!! The fit and finish is first rate. I play competitive tennis and this vest is taking my game to the next. Doesn’t move at full sprints or during full swings both on backhand and forehand. Definitely buy again!!

    Got 3 vests!!!

    Posted by Khoa Tran on 28th Mar 2018

    Used to train for Ranger school and my buddy ask to borrow it for his selection course. Great for endurance run, ruck, stamina and strength. Used the 30lb basketball vest for speed, 40lb for strength and 50-75 for long distance ruck.

    Great product

    Posted by Amir Spielberg. on 19th Feb 2018

    This is an absolute beast, have been using it for 3 weeks.
    The workouts are simply great, the vest is sturdy, the materials are 100% solid.
    I'm doing HIIT and Heavy army cardio, in which involve a lot of movement and air to ground contact. It doesn't move, its here to stay directly on your body, even with the hardest movements.
    Besides that, the weight distribution works completely good.
    A little tip - set a goal before you proceed with the order, and after that pick a weight which is bigger than what you can handle or needed so you will have a room for improvements.

    Great Vest!

    Posted by Steven on 21st Jan 2018

    This is a great vest for training to get in better shape. Shoulder straps are thinner to improve overhead mobility, which is perfect for wearing during workouts and drill--even for sprints as well. It does not flop around when you exercise. The durability of the vest is incredible. When I first picked up the vest, I knew that the it is going to last a long time! So well constructed. Plus, I ordered mine in typhoon color and it looks like a badass in person. I would highly recommend this vest to any level of athletes, since the weights are removable, which is a huge plus!

    Excellent vest. Purchased a 60lb vest from Dick's and returned it. Glad I did, the quality of this vest is superior. Super fast delivery and product looks to be built to last.

    If not for the weight, you wouldn't know it's on

    Posted by GDL on 23rd May 2017

    It's worth the extra money. The vest is easy to take on and off, and snug, even when jumping rope, or doing burpees or handstand push-ups. This vest doesn't flop around or interfere with my workout in any way. I've used other vests that are good, but not this good. I'm 58 and will devote one hour a day to exercise. When it's time to bump to a new level, I put in more weight, not more time. Even just 10 pounds is a challenge. But after a couple of weeks, if I take the weight out I can really notice the difference. I highly recommend weight vests and this one in particular. Consider ordering the hanger with the vest. I didn't had had make a separate order.
