  1. Massive gains bigger arms and chest

    Posted by Ronald on 3rd Jun 2019

    Amazing vest I’ve seen some major gains welcome to pump city baby

  2. 45 lb vest

    Posted by Unknown on 17th May 2019

    Doing great so far

  3. Best quality and fit out there

    Posted by jes***9@gmail.com on 27th Mar 2019

    The vest fits perfectly. I’m able to perform every calisthenic movement with a full ROM while wearing this. It’s actually very comfortable with the padded shoulder straps. Easy to take on and off. This is by far the best option for weighted vest training. Better than the Heria knockoff for sure which my buddy has. I got the black typhon camo pattern and it looks sick.

  4. Great design and quality

    Posted by Mike Santosuosso on 27th Mar 2019

    Product has been everything the reviews have stated... went with the narrow 45lb design so it doesn’t constrict. Sits just right. The quality is awesome. Extremely durable.

  5. Must-have gear!

    Posted by Mo on 24th Mar 2019

    I got the 45 lb short, narrow vest and ran with it once. It is challenging cardio, for sure. I wish I could report all the cool extreme workouts I'm doing with it , but only a week after getting this vest, I accidentally dropped my bike on my leg, so we'll see how I can work it into training in a couple weeks. I can say it forms to my body great and the materials appear to be tougher than milspec gear I have trusted my life with. With the running pad in it, there is very little movement and I feels very well balanced. Can't wait to back on my feet and put this kit to work.

  6. Excellent Balance and Durability

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Aug 2018

    A great piece of equipment. The fabrication is top notch, it’s comfortable and the woodland camo brought back memories of days past as a US Army Paratrooper.
    The customer service was second to none.

  7. Great purchase

    Posted by Bryan Alcorn on 5th Jul 2018

    Excellent build quality. Comfortable to wear. Shipping was very fast. Extremely happy with this purchase. Highly recommend this product.

    This weight vest is tough. It kills your workouts. Durable and reliable, just have to be careful you don’t loose the strap buckle, comes off easy when not using it. Im from Vancouver, Canada and shipping was fast. Everyone asks where I got the vest from.. so sending people your way. Get it.. worth the money.

  9. Leveled up HIIT classes!

    Posted by Mario on 17th May 2018

    I teach an online class and decided to make it harder with the V force and so far I love it!
    It fits securely and the short front lets me breathe well which is key when you are driving your heart rate up.
    It has change every move I make. I love it!

  10. Great vest

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2018

    Comfortable vest for hiking and workout.

  11. Great Weight Vest for Multipurpose Training

    Posted by Chuan-Pang Huang on 2nd Apr 2018

    This is by far the best weight vest I had. Straps are easy to use, weights distributed very well and comfortably across my upper body and are also easily adjustable. However, if you want to wear this vest for a run, I suggest you get the Running Pad. It will highly reduce and stabilize the vest pounding on your chest.

  12. Great quality

    Posted by Michael on 20th Feb 2018

    I received the weight vest on time and the best part was the package wasn’t damaged. I ordered the 45 pound desert tan with the wide straps. I’ve used the vest multiple times with no issues. The vest doesn’t slide around on you if you have it adjusted properly and it does help the first time to have some one adjust the straps with you. Watch the video from the company and it will help you. I’m glad I spent the extra money on a quality product like this and you will as well.

  13. 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.

  14. perfect

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Sep 2017

    very nice vest

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. Great vest

    Posted by -M on 5th Sep 2016

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

  24. 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.

    Posted by Unknown on 17th May 2016

    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!
