V-FORCE weighted vests are military tough, built in full-body camouflage using the highest quality mil-spec materials. Extra reinforcement and wider 2" belts are included.

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.

Back View

Wear it how you like

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.

    40 lb Weighted Vest

    Posted by Rich Cooper on 1st Jun 2020

    I am 5' 8" at 170 lbs. The 40 lb vest is more than adequate.

    I have found using 10 lbs of weight within the vest provides great aerobic conditioning. I use the vest walking, biking, battle rope workout, hitting the boxing water bag and in doing general yard work.

    Very well made. Fits very comfortably. I recommend the V- Force Weighted Vest

    Not so great. Worth maybe 120 tops.

    Posted by Marcos on 31st May 2020

    This vest seemed really good out of the box but, after two months of running/training it has become bothersome in areas it does not need to be. This vest is a sponge and the sweat just sits there all day even when left.to dry out. The padding front and back have shrunk and are not as 'lofty' anymore leaving a wobbly vest that no longer feels supportive/sturdy as when I first got it. The strap sits waaaayyy to low and for distance/uphill running and sprints it tends to slip causing the weight to be too low on the back. This leads to a back pain caused purely by vest placement/weight distribution. Perhaps a y-strap design with the vest made in two sizes for varying torso lengths and the strap sitting much higher towards the armpit with the bottom strap being bungee. Not all of us are long torso'ed body builders.

    The open area for which your head goes thru is entirely to big. Shorten this up as again we are not all large torso'ed individuals. This design leads to bad weight distribution on the body. The weights themselves need to sit higher up.

    Overall felt good out of the box but not made/designed for the distance. More of a novelty piece than a hardcore safe training device.

    Awesome vest

    Posted by Erik Alvarez on 21st May 2020

    The quality of the vest is definitely top grade. Feels very sturdy and does not feel cheap compared to others I’ve seen. Only thing I have issues with, is even with the narrow shoulder straps I still have a hard time doing pull-ups comfortably. Other than that no other movements have given me issues and fits great. This is a definite must have for doing body weight and other movement exercise. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you

    Very Satisfied

    Posted by Spencer on 19th May 2020

    I've had it for 2 weeks and used it maybe 8-10 times for jumping or extra weight during dips, pullups etc. It's been great. Easy to wear, easy to remove or add weights. Quality build. So, pretty happy with the purchase.

    This vest feels very well made, it shipped quickly and arrived quickly. I’ve been wearing it for workouts and it sucks, but in the way it’s supposed to suck. I’ve improved my walking distance wearing it and I can feel the difference it makes. I’ll be buying a bigger one once I get used to this one.

    Vest is amazing! Fits snug and allows for full mobility. In just a couple weeks, I've done circuit training, body weight exercises, stair runs and hiking with the vest. Worth every penny.
