    Durable, high quality, and everything I needed in a weight vest. Works well for my uphill sprints, hitting the heavy bag, foot work, and obviously resistance training. I do pushups with the vest and my reps have increased significantly when I'm not wearing it. The extra padding is easy on the shoulders, compared to some cheaper brands I've tried in the past. I work in law enforcement and wear an outter carrier vest with a decent amount of weight. Since I started training with the weight vest my outter carrier feels a lot lighter. I would definitely buy another one, probably in a couple years when I am ready to upgrade to more weight. Again, can't emphasize enough the durability and quality of the material and stitching, its gonna last a long time.

    Outstanding piece of P.T. gear.

    Super strong, military grade product. I love the fact that you can add/move weights to suit your personal fitness level. Easy to set up and adjust. I hike 5+ miles in mine and I get a great workout. Has really added a new dimension to my P.T. routine.

    Monster of a Product

    Love it. I love the fact that I can change the weight distribution so easily. Some exercises I put most of the weight on my back whereas others I distribute the weight evenly. A snap to take off, rearrange the weights and go. Great design and quality. Couldn't be happier with my vest

    I couldn't be happier!

    I did a fair amount of research before purchasing my weight vest. After all the leg work I kept coming back to weightvest.com. You can pay the same price for a poorly made vest from another country or go with a good old American made product. I bought my vest in anticipation of the upcoming Memorial Murph workout. I went with the 40 pound vest instead of the 20 so I can train with more weight in the future and use it on hikes. I would highly recommend this product to any of my friends looking to take their workout to the next level.

    V Max weight vest

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Dec 2016

    I've had the vest for about two weeks and have been happy with my purchase. The vest is well made, durable, and fits comfortably. The videos on the company website were helpful with the straps. The vest was pricey, but worth it.
