    Weight Vest

    Great quality weight vest. I wear it while walking my dogs and doing the step mill at the gym. Fits comfortably, weights are easy to remove to adjust desired workout weight.

    Awesome vest

    I love this product. It’s very easy to use and gets the job done. I’m using it for fire training and definitely gets your prepared. The only problem I’ve had was the front clip came un-sewed but works without it! Great product!

    Great, Solid Product

    Posted by Bill on 28th Sep 2018

    This thing is awesome. It's very well made, the weights are easy to remove, and it just feels solid. I've been using it to up the intensity of my body weight workouts and it's definitely done just that! A great addition for someone who stays away from traditional gym workouts and prefers calisthenics.

    Great weight vest

    Posted by Geoff on 21st Mar 2018

    I love this weight vest. I work for the fire department and i use weight vests for hiking and stair climbing. I have owned four weight vests, but this is the cream of the crop. We actually use this same vest for our physical agility test. It’s a little bit more than other cheaper ones on the market, but the quality and build is worth it.

    Pro: sturdy. Lays flat. Even weight distribution. Only had it a few weeks so still getting to know it.
    Con: storage is hard bc it is heavy. Currently lives in a corner of the room

    This product is great, really well made and has taken my workouts to the next level. I really like the level of detail padding is comfortable and placed well throughout the vest. The ability to change the wieght in 2.5 lb increments is awesome I'll usemail it at 45 while my wife uses it at 20. I'd really recommend this product of you appreciate quality and perfection. I will be leaving another review in 6months to see how it stands up to the use but I have a feeling I'll he happy with it

    Better than expected

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd May 2016

    Amazing product. Built like a brick house. Quality materials that look like they will hold up forever. LOVE the 2.5kg weights--no more leaking sand bags. The running pad helps hold the vest secure enough that you don't have to worry about it shifting, while allowing you to take a deep breath. Buy with confidence, as this the the real deal and I seriously doubt you can find anything better!
