Bought this vest used it a few times from tire flips, push ups, sit ups, sprawls, etc. adds that extra bit to make any body weight exercise difficult and does it well. My only gripe is the velcro strap that goes around like to slip down and makes the vest lose on one side from time to time because I'm a smaller guy. Its remedied by using the strap at more of a 45 degree angle but itd be nice if there was more hook side to the Velcro or some type of attachment to secure it better. Overall though it's great built tough and definitely worth the buy.

To the point:
Comfy: I do not use this product for long periods of time. However I have had no problem wearing this bare shirted and do not feel any excessive strain on body. Currently train at roughly 20lbs.
Works: Be it placebo effect or dedication. Doing smart weight training with the vest has helped my performance in other areas. For reference I do mostly gymnastics/bodyweight training making increasing the load on rings/pull ups an invaluable experience.
Sturdy: I have no other vests to compare, but this one does not feel cheap or that you must be gentle with it (to a reasonable degree). Only have owned this for 1 month.
Wishes: A non weight version that would allow the user to buy the weights separately at their leisure. For me I feel the 50lb will last me for my money's worth. However I may have opted for a higher capacity vest just to have the extra pouches. I hear there was mention of a trade in program of sorts.
Bottom line: Do your research. My brought me to the conclusion v-max was a top of the line quality grade.
The best weight vest I have ever bought.

Best weight vest on the market!

I recently purchased the V Max 50lb weight vest. This is a replacement for the original 50lb weight vest i purchased 22 years ago. Prior to purchasing the V Max i received a 50lb weight vest from a company called MIR. I immediately noticed how uncomfortable it was and the straps used to secure the vest were complicated and prone to twisting. I immediately returned that inferior weight vest for a full refund and ordered the V MAX. Simply put, the weight vests manufactured by weightvest.com are the best. In addition to comfort, these vests are designed for abuse and longevity. In my opinion, these vests are worth every penny.
Fits like a glove

Vest fits perfectly and is very easy to take on and off between exercises. I use it for various bodyweight exercises (pullups, dips, push-ups, inverted rows) and the vest never moves or inhibits me. I'm glad I spent the extra money for a top quality vest.

This is the best vest you can get, hands down. All of the materials used are of the highest quality, and so is the finishing. Modifying the weight of the vest is very easy and functional with each weighing only 2.5 lbs. Plus, the ability to order an attachment with more weights only adds to the value the product. If you're looking to buy a vest, look no further as this is the best you'll find.

I am totally disabled, needing a walker to get around. I do exercise for two hours three days each week. After doing this for two years, I wanted some extra resistance and, with my surgeon's advice, I purchased a V-Max. This vest is absolutely amazing. It fits me perfectly and I have a 56" chest and a 22" neck. The weight is held snugly against my body so it does not hamper my balance at all. And the extra resistance is superb. Even after only ten days, I can feel my legs getting stronger. This vest is a real blessing and has made a dramatic improvement in my health.
Just what I needed...

I've only had for a couple of weeks but I can already feel the difference. I just needed to add to my workout routine which includes as little gym time as possible. This vest is great because I can turn a simple dog walk into a workout, among other activities. As a 56 YO training for our local SAR team with a bunch of 30-somethings, I need all the help I can get.
Everything I imagined it would be!

Great vest! I've owned other style vests in the past but was always curious about V-MAX it was recommended to me a couple of years ago by a fellow firefighter. While my vest was in transit for delivery I took the time to watch the plethora of tutorial videos available on the website. I found the videos very helpful. It was everything I expected high quality material very snug and secure. The narrow shoulder style is great for calisthenic workouts to add that extra intensity. Last but not least it's the perfect vest to prepare for the CPAT and the pack test. I'd recommend this vest to anyone whose serious about their training.
Instant motivation on opening

Love love love it. As soon as it was out of the box I felt motivated to start working. It was just what I needed to get me out of my fog.
Wish I had this years ago

I bought this vest mostly for walking in, although I have been using it while doing push-ups, squats and lunges also. Even though I'm rather slim, the vest fits snug (that is to say well-with no excessive movement), and is well balanced. I had been using a vest made by a different company that I purchased at a sporting goods store, and although it served its' purpose, it never fit well, and was uncomfortable to wear. I wish I would have found your vest years ago. I would definitely recommend this product to others.
