Product Reviews

  1. Awesome vest

    Posted by Katie on 14th May 2019

    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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. So far so good

    Posted by Kris on 14th Jan 2018

    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

  5. Great Pack Test Vests

    Posted by Unknown on 10th May 2017

    These vests are great!! Very well built and comfortable. We are slowly replacing all of our Pack Test Vests for the whole department with these.

  6. Perfection

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Apr 2017

    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

    Couldn't be more happier. Received when advertised and immediately got to donning and working out. Excellent investment in your personal health.

  8. 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!

  9. Glad I was not tempted by lower prices.

    I passed my pack test today using the 45 lb. vest. I design and build things for a living - and this is well made. Even the weights have been carefully molded and coated. Sometimes I just pull one out to look at it. As with most vests, breathing can be inhibited sometimes, so I may invent a "spacer" to keep the front off my chest. But over all, this is the one to buy. The other vests I have tried on do not compare to this quality. I will only recommend this vest to my fellow firefighters. The ordering and customer service? Pleasant and excellent.

  10. THE Best Vest in The West!

    Posted by Chris B. on 26th Mar 2016

    I started walking with a weight vest about 2 years ago. I like to add resistance training. Honestly the vests I had in the past were sand bags for weights and the vest itself was huge. A few I bought on Ebay, they never fit me correctly but thought they were all that way so I just dealt with it. Low and behold after doing some searching and investigating I called weightvest.com I loved the fact you were next door in Idaho, me in Utah. The person who helped was EXTREMELY helpful, told him I am a female, 5'4" wanted a vest that would fit me great so I can actually enjoy wearing the vest compared to others. . I am happy with my purchase - I got it SUPER FAST and it fits PERFECT! I will never look back- well made, Army strong, Adjustable just the best vest you can BUY! Thanks a bunch!!

  11. Great Vest

    Posted by Taylor on 15th Feb 2016

    Ordered the vest for weighted pull-ups, push-ups, dips, etc. Works great, very well made, no complaints. Worth the investment.

  12. Worth every penny

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Aug 2015

    I researched different vest for weeks before I settled on this vest, and it was worth the extra money. I got mine with the washable sweat guard and am in week 3 of using it and absolutely love it. It is extremely well built and comfortable. I am using it for body weight training and it does not cut my range of motion at all. The vest is easy enough to take off that I can remove it for rest in between circuits. Love the fact that it uses metal weights and not sand bags. We will be ordering one for the wife soon too.

  13. Sturdy and well-made

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Apr 2015

    Love it. Looks like it will last a long time with lots of use. Well-built. Becomes part of me..even when running.

  14. Good product - made in Idaho.
