  1. Great Product

    Posted by Bob on 19th Oct 2016

    This 50lb short vest has been great.

  2. Started using it 2 weeks ago

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Sep 2016

    Quality material, I believe it will outlast me.
    I appreciate the weight is actually metal bars ( versus sand ), easy to add and remove from pouches.

  3. Great Product

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Aug 2016

    Just received and have only used a couple of times. Very high quality and I can tell it will last for years to come!!!

  4. Great quality!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Jul 2016

    This is the first weight vest I have owned but they are not kidding when they say it is military-grade quality in terms of material and stitching. It reminds me of the IBA I wore in Iraq while serving in the Army. I have only had it for a couple weeks but I love the Typhon design and the narrow shoulder is good for my weight lifting and pullups. I chose the 50 lb so that I can easliy adjust and have plenty of room to move in weight as I get stronger. Also good as added weight for leg exercises like squats.

  5. Perfect!!!

    Posted by Juan Rubio on 20th Jul 2016

    So far this has been the best weighted vest I've put on. Amazing weight distribution.

  6. First Weight Vest

    Posted by Ivan on 21st Jun 2016

    As this having been my first weight vest I am completely satisfied with the purchase. Durable design and pretty cool camo as well. I got mine in Typhon which looks a lot better in person than it does in the pictures.

  7. Kicks your butt -- great product

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Jun 2016

    Very well made, durable material. Nice balance between front and back so you're not pulled in either direction. A few miles of hiking with this bad boy and my legs are toast. Went hiking recently without the vest and felt like I was flying.

  8. Great weight vest!!

    Posted by Dino on 9th Jun 2016

    It is made out of high quality material and delivery was very fast to APO in Germany (10 days). The vest feels very comfortable and stay put during exercising. I will recommend my friends to order from this company. Their customer service over the phone was outstanding and very helpful prior to ordering my vest. Customer service representative was very knowledgeable. Will buy more products from this company in the future.

  9. Excellent

    Posted by Sean on 16th Apr 2016

    Very high quality. The vest stays put during all exercises and doesn't flop around. Worth the money.

    I would recommend purchasing the removable sweat liner add-on however, as I can imagine it will get quite warm in the summer months.

  10. Mho

    Posted by Tom on 13th Mar 2016

    I got the narrow shoulders, and it's more comfortable than one would expect. It's hot though, I don't think outside above 90 degrees would be prudent to use.

  11. 5 star product

    Posted by FV on 27th Jan 2016

    The shipping for this product was excellent and I didn't wait long for my vest. It came well packaged and with instructions in case you are new to the weight vest scene. It's durable, weights are not damaged, and I love how comfortable the shoulders are. I use mine to hike and for added weight on pull-ups and dips. I am extremely satisfied with my weight vest and hope you will be too!

  12. The best vest I have owned!!

    Posted by Dan McManus on 20th Jan 2016

    I have owned three weight vests over my lifetime. This is by far the most superior product of them all. I have used the "big box store" brand and another competitors tactical style. Neither come close to this vests construction, balance or customer service while purchasing.

    I took my time and "weighted out" my options before purchasing this vest. There is no comparison when you are working out to have the weights higher up unlike other styles. Thank you for making a great product, of high quality material in our own country with fast and professional service! I will be a promoter and customer for life.

    Very Happy with the Quality! The attachment/buckle system is superb. Bought weight vest for older teenage boys who were borrowing a weight vest from a neighbor, that was from a competitor company. Teenage sons said your V-Force weighted vest blew the competitor out of the water! Easy on, easy off for both teenage boys to wear at the gym. Comfortable to wear while doing pull-ups, dips, pushups. Highly recommend this product.

  14. Seems just fine

    Posted by Rick on 28th Oct 2015

    This is my first ever experience with a weight vest so I have no basis for comparison, although I will say this company was recommended to me by a Navy Seal.
    It arrived in a timely fashion within a few days after I ordered it. My mailman will never speak to me again after having to carry my fifty pound package onto my porch.
    I opened it, watched the videos about adjusting the weight, watched another video about attaching the straps, another one about putting it in and taking it off, and before my mailman could drive himself to the ER for help with his hernia, I had removed thirty pounds of weights from my vest and I was wearing it and out walking down the road.
    I have used it about ten more times since then and I have no complaints. Since it has no moving parts I don't anticipate having any problems with it. If I do I will contact the seller since I believe it has a lifetime warranty. In the meantime I will try to utilize it as much as possible, both to get my money's worth and to further expose my inner, lean mean fighting machine.

  15. Pay for what u get

    Posted by Alex on 27th Sep 2015

    This vest was expensive compared to others but as soon as I tried it on I knew it would last a very long time. High quality down to the small little stitches and all, if you have any doubts about paying $200 plus just do it. I can't imagine a vest half the price would stack up

  16. Great Quality Vest

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Sep 2015

    Wow what an awesome vest made with extreme quality. Very well padded and the sweat liner is a must. I have done several workouts in it already including; running, pushups, pullups, squats, dumbbell thrusters, wall balls and few more. Only complaint is that is a bit loose in the upper torso and shifts a bit on the run, not bad though. Also even with the narrow shoulders some of the overhead movements are constricted. If you are looking to do a lot of overhead stuff maybe look at some of their other narrower options because, seriously, the quality can't be beat.

  17. Quality

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Sep 2015

    Extremely well made, and high quality materials. Very happy with my purchase.


    Posted by Andrew Ragland (Dixie Mauck's son) on 17th Sep 2015

    Have been using the weight vest for a few weeks now and I already have lost 5 LBS. My back, chest, core and legs are noticeably stronger as well. It is very comfortable, and the sweat liner adds some cushion too. thank you for a great product, well worth the money. Im training to be a firefighter and I feel more confident that my strengthen will be up to par in time.

  19. Perfect vest.

    Posted by A on 9th Sep 2015

    Every aspect of this vest is excellent. MILSPEC construction, optimal and highly configurable weight distribution profile. Comfortable, and with an excellent and easily adjustable fit. Well-conceived designs. I highly recommend getting a sweat liner, as it makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze.
    I did a lot of research on many vests. I am totally satisfied with this as my final choice.
    Customer service was also as strong as this vest, which will surely outlive me.

    - All in all, simply outstanding. 5/5 Thank you Weightvest team!

  20. Good Quality

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Sep 2015

    Wore it a couple of times. Still early to judge quality beet seems very good

  21. V-Force vest

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Aug 2015

    Very high quality. Its very comfortable. Highly recommend it.

  22. Great Vest

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Aug 2015

    Well built vest. Fits very well and easy to take care of. I had been looking for vest and found this one, I must say it's well worth the money. You get what you pay for. If I ever have to buy another one I will definitely buy this one again.

  23. Awesome vest!

    Posted by MG on 27th Jul 2015

    This is my second vest. My first one was a fireman's vest from x-vest. The product may have improved, but my x-vest was horrible quality and fell apart with little use. Their customer service was horrible. This vest is first rate - durable and functional - solidly built vest. Thanks!

  24. Vest thus far...

    Posted by Jordan on 27th Jun 2015

    I have only been through a couple workouts thus far with the vest but I must say it is holding up quite well. I mainly use it for pullups, squats, pushups, etc. For these goals, I can say after correctly adjusting the vest(thanks to the many videos that were created by weightvest.com to do so) I have a great fitting vest that is easy to slip off and on. This is my first weight vest but I must say I am completely happy with the purchase!

  25. worth the money

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jun 2015

    Fits the same as my plate carrier and that's what I wanted. Stays secure no matter what I'm doing. The Velcro belt is even strong/secure enough for my pistol and extra mag to be fastened to while rucking.
    Great quality overall and very satisfied
