BEST for Calisthenics
Posted by Warner on 24th Apr 2018
Super comfortable, fits snug, and easy to take off weights if necessary; I have the narrow vest. Quality is superb! I always recommend this vest to others, and sometimes people come up to me and ask where I got it. Pricey but well worth it!
I guess If I had to say one thing, I cant figure out how the 20lb attachment fits on top of the 40lb...I thought I saw a video somewhere, but cant find it.

You get what you pay for is an understatement for this product. This vest is sturdy, durable, and VERY comfortable. Would definitely recommend this vest.

I searched and searched for a high quality vest for a reasonable price and came across weightvest.com and read the reviews and decided to try it out! My husband has ran with his vest twice and loves it! The vest appears to be high quality and my husband says it's comfortable! So glad I found this vest---I purchased the vforce 60lb short vest for him for running and crossfit wods
Been using these vests for a month.

After purchasing this vest and a quick video on setting it up, I'm now wearing the best investment I could have made in a weight vest. Very comfortable, very maneuverable, rests easy on the shoulders, I couldn't have made a better purchase if I tried; hands down worth every penny.
investment well made

Purchased this vest and after watching a couple short videos I set up my vest and was amazed by how comfortable and durable this vest is. Hands down worth every penny and couldn't find a better vest if I tried

This is the fourth weight vest I have owned and it is by far the best. It is the least restrictive on my movement, the shoulder straps and run pad make it the second most secure (one was a neoprene vest so it's kind of hard to beat that, but it was very restrictive), and it is the most comfortable by far. I was a little off put by the price but you definitely get what you pay for. It fits larger people too, I wear a size 50 coat and 34 inch pants and I'm able to almost overlap the standard strap on it. For military overseas the shipping was nice and fast, delivery was less the two weeks after shipping. If you have the money to spend and want a more intense workout, this is the best vest out there.
So far, so good

I received my vest less than a week ago and so far, I have only tried it out with calisthenics at home. This includes push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and squats. It feels nice and snug during these workouts and it does not really get in the way much. With the narrow shoulders (3 1/4"), the only time I feel it rubbing against my shoulders is when I do close-grip pull-ups like hammers. I plan on hiking/running and doing jump ropes with it as well.
As for the product itself, the color I chose (steel) was not applied to the shoulder strap and the flap that goes over the weights as shown in the picture when the color option is chosen. Only the area behind the actual weights are colored. However, my other option was an all black vest so this isn't really a deal breaker for me. Also, it was a nice surprise that the color was applied to the 20-lb attachment. I was not expecting that, because there is no color option when purchasing the attachment separately. My only real gripe with the vest is how the belts are way too long for me. I purchased both the regular and pro-glide belts, and I have to overlap with both of them. For the regular belt, I have to overlap on the rear velcro, and for the pro-glide, I have to overlap the 2nd outer straps on the front. It's not a huge deal, but this makes me unable to utilize the OCR shield for the pro-glide belt because I have to overlap all the way to the opposite side for both sides. I tried overlapping with the inner straps, but it ends up feeling a bit loose. Again, not a deal breaker.
This is the first weight vest I have ever purchased, but I did my research before making the decision. I decided to spend the extra cash for the quality vest and I'm glad I did. Overall, the vest feels like a great quality product and I would definitely recommend it to anyone shopping for one.
