  1. working out

    Posted by Diana on 27th Oct 2017

    I bought this weight vest as an early Xmas present for my son. He works out almost every day.
    He loves this vest. He took a few of the weights out first and will work his way up to them.
    But he really enjoys it. I'm glad I got it for him.

    very nice vest

  3. Army Strong

    Posted by Kenneth on 26th Aug 2017

    I love this vest. Always wanted one but never had the Money. Was envious of all my other army buddies that worked out with it. It feels comfortable and doesn't irritate. I only wish there was Velcro on the exterior to place cool patches. Other than that, it's great vest and i can feel myself getting stronger and leaner everyday.

  4. V-Force 45lb weight vest short narrow

    Posted by Peter on 25th Aug 2017

    I am new to using a weight vest with calisthenics. I have done weightlifting for most of my life and developed more interests in bodyweight exercises a couple years ago. I have used the weight vest for a couple months. The Weight vest is clearly well constructed. It does not inhibit motion in the shoulders much if at all. The plates may limit a little with say a push up. It certainly even with low weight - almost all the weights removed- provides significant increase in intensity to a work-out. I typically do a circuit style workout. The one I chose will certainly provide enough room to improve. I may have been a bit overzealous with the amount of weight (45lb) but maybe some day will be able to handle the full load. I am happy that I purchased the sweat liner even though the vest liner combo may be a bit warm in the summer.

  5. Great product for greater workouts

    Posted by Richard on 15th Aug 2017

    Shipping was fast and every workout with it has been great. It fits comfortably and is great quality.

  6. Outstanding Vest

    Posted by Ansel on 19th Jul 2017

    This is a well made Vest and it fits great. So far I've walk, jog, and worked out with my vest and I have no complains about it.

  7. Love this vest

    Posted by Luis on 19th Apr 2017

    has taken my workout to a new level. Feels solid and of good quality. I see this vest lasting a really long time. I love it and would recommend to anyone looking for a vest.

  8. Great addition to my gym of ultimate power

    Posted by CJ Rausa on 13th Feb 2017

    Puddles of sweat. Puddles so big your mop game better be on point. My body loves and hates me so much this weighted vest should be called my old lady. Its been 3 weeks doing hot steamy steep incline walks on a treadmill, step ups on plyo boxes, and heavy cursing doing landmine drills. I also wear this monster while I walk my 130lb male Akita called Garand. Boom! My body has gotten stronger as now it feels less of a strain.............until I wear it during deadlifts and squats. And youll probably hear me grunt while I beast mode through the sets. Hoorah! Love it! Lets get it! Or get out my way. Lol

  9. This is the one!

    Posted by Paul on 5th Jan 2017

    Short 45 Lbs narrow shoulders:. Excellent quality professional vest. Use to walk, run, and workout. I am in good shape so the narrow shoulders are fine for running. It's challenging with all the weight.

  10. Comparable to Plate Carrier

    Posted by Nick Banks on 21st Nov 2016

    It can be challenging to find the quality and fit in one package. This product far exceeded my expectations. You can easily transition from running to pullups, to pushups, presses, and much more. Having a distinct fit similar to a plate carrier, it simulates the balance and movement of most carrier systems.
    I especially find the room for shoulder rotation to be magnificent, the vest allows for total movement while maintaining a ridged support system for running.
    Once opening the package, you will immediately notice the tight tolerances and adherence to quality material.
    ***The quality you get with the price you pay....outstanding***
    Military, EMS, Police, Fire, general fitness, USE this system and develop your chassis strength, it works, but follow a guide line and feed your body with proper nutrition.

  11. Great vest

    Posted by -M on 5th Sep 2016

    This is the best weighted vest I've ever had on. Comfy and well made.

  12. Well-made!

    Posted by David Z. on 22nd Jun 2016

    Purchased the 45 pound V-Force Weight Vest to help me train better. Use 20lbs when indoor rowing and it's quite a challenge compared to not wearing the vest. Will start doing pull-ups and dips with the vest on next. The vest is solid and fits quite well with plenty of adjustment. Highly recommend.

    This thing rocks. It came within a few days of ordering. Easy setup. Fits comfortably, and makes you suffer with the extra weight. Highly recommend to all interested in taking workouts to the next level. get the narrow shoulder fit. They are plenty wide and still allow for over the head mobility. Well done V-Force!

  14. Special Ops training

    Posted by Rodney S on 22nd Mar 2016

    I purchased this vest to help train in the military. Fits well, is comfortable, and it's made to last. This thing great.

  15. V-FORCE 45 Pound Short Weight Vest

    Posted by MAC on 7th Feb 2016

    I ordered the Multi-cam V-Force 45 Pound Short Weight Vest, wide shoulders with the sweat liner and within a couple of days it was at my door step. Amazing products, high quality materials, comfortable and functional. I would recommend this product to everyone looking to add some intensity to their fitness. I use this weight vest for walking my dog, hiking, jogging, circuit training. Sometimes i wear it when I'm making breakfast or doing work around the house. Its a badass vest and worth every dime. This product will last a lifetime.

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jan 2016

    This vest is everything it promised to be, and I have absolutely no problems with its performance.

  17. V-force 45lb vest.

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Sep 2015

    I've had the vest for maybe two months now. I use it for body weight exercises and jogging, so far it feels solid and comfortable. The vest is the smaller shoulder width (i'm 5'7" 165lbs) and has given me no issues while jogging concerning comfort. I did buy the extra sweat liner and i think it's a good idea because you will sweat from adding this vest to your workouts. I have nothing to compare it to but the look, feel and construction looks very well made.

  18. Best vest on the market

    Posted by John on 2nd Sep 2015

    Recently purchased a 45lb vest and it is the best overall fitness purchase I have ever made. This things is comfortable, sturdy, doesn't rub, heavy and looks bad*ss! It was at my house within a week of ordering. I recommend this vest to everyone looking to advance their overall fitness levels. Thanks again for an awesome piece of equipment to my workout arsenal!

  19. Awesome

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jun 2015

    Great product, very well built. Will last for quite some time.

  20. Top Quality, Secure, Easy to Use

    Posted by Joseph on 3rd May 2015

    45lb short narrow vest is made with top quality materials and stitching. It is easy to put on and off (as easy as 45lb can be). Design is adjustable to a wide range of chest widths. I have run and performed several Crossfit wods with varying levels on weight in this vest. I think the narrow shoulder option is probably a must. I don't have super wide shoulders, but doing pullups would be difficult I believe with the normal shoulder option. The vest does get hot when wearing it, but I don't know how this could be corrected when you're wearing 1000D nylon and metal bricks. Overall, love this vest and is a great option for those wanting to add some difficulty to nearly any activity.

  21. Great for Military

    Posted by Dustin on 15th Apr 2015

  23. Best Quality Vest!

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Mar 2015

    Durable and reliable you can depend on. Highly recommended!

  24. Worth the extra cash

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Feb 2015

    I'm an aspiring Air Force Pararescuemen and have been trying for almost two years to achieve my goal. My trading required a weight vest and I did my research and found that the v force was top of the line and the item ment a lot to me and I wanted it to hold up well so I layed down the extra cash to get the v force. I can say it is the best workout related investment I have ever made. I got the narrow shoulder model for better pull ups and push-ups in the multicam pattern. It's held up well and I couldn't be happier with the product, don't be discouraged by the price because it's definetly worth it.

  25. Love this vest!

    Posted by Mike on 17th Jan 2015

    This is a great vest. I do all sorts of things in it, burpees, push ups, squats, plyos, stairs etc. It really works your core and legs.
