    Would Recommend
    Love this weight vest. It is very quality construction and I love that it is made in the USA. Hopefully this helps with other women deciding what size to get. I am 5’6” 200lbs with a pretty short torso, built shoulders from weightlifting, and medium size bust. I got the narrow width 3.25” shoulders. I was having a hard time deciding on what shoulder width to go with and I’m really happy I went with the narrow. I think the wide would-be way too big for most women. The shoulder straps cover the majority of my shoulder, and the vest goes to about my belly button. I have not had an issue with this being uncomfortable on my chest which I was nervous about, but I have a medium size chest so that might be something to consider if you are larger in that area. I know this company makes women specific vests, but I needed something with at least 50lbs because my job requires me to carry a lot of weight so that is why I went with this one. Overall, I am impressed and happy with the vest!

    V-Force 50 lb Short Weightvest
    For additional comments on V-Force Vests, see my other reviews on the V-Force 40 lb Wide and 75 lb Long Wide vests. As stated in these reviews I consider the Weightvests.com vests the best on the market with a several decade history of constructing no nonsense long lasting vests (a lifetime in treated properly). If one were only going to buy one vests with as many options as possible, I would recommend their V-Force 50 lb either wide or narrow vests. The reason for this is that one can set the weight from 50 lb and below and keep the weight perfectly balanced from front to back. The narrow vest will allow all applications whether one is lifting overhead or performing pull-ups. One can also add another add-on vests to increase the weight to 75 pounds in needed. Their is no disadvantage of this size vests at lower weight all the way down to 5 lbs if so desired. Also, the vests become more cost effective at this weight although the very heavy vests are a little cheaper per pound. Unless one wants a longer vests for some reason, for which there are some, like doing very long walks with high weights. The longer vests does afford the advantage in that the higher weights are distributed more evenly on the torso for walking and other time consuming activities. One may want to consider a second vests for these applications. I hope these recommendations are useful. I cover other topics like putting on very heavy vests in a safe manner that works extremely well.

    Review for the V-Force 50 LB Wide Weight Vest
    Please refer to my other reviews under the V-Force 40 lb Wide Shoulder and 75 lb Wide Shoulder Weight Vests for additional information.

    I currently own several V-Force Wide and Narrow Shoulder Weight Vests in weights ranging from 40 lbs. to 75 lbs. I consider Weightvest.com to be the finest weight vests available on the market today with the strongest construction and finest materials used. The review focuses on how to safely without injury put a heavy weight vest on. Other methods can be used for vests 50 lbs and below or greater than 75 lbs with additional add –on vest—for instance the 100 lb vests using either a 75 lb short or 75 lb long vest with 25 lb add-on. My method works extremely for all vests 75 lbs. or below with no add-on whether short or long.

    Method putting vest onto shoulders: One needs to purchase a wood dowel made of oak (very strong) 1 ¼ “ in diameter and 36” long. One can then cut in down to a shorter length (mine is cut to 33”). These lengths allow one to do a shoulder press with various grips or it could be cut shorter if prefer a closer grip. Home Depot has a good selection of the oak dowels and will cut it to the desired length. I then sanded the dowel to a very smooth finish and coated with Tung Oil or Watco Oil. These creates dowel that will slide smoothly along the inner surface of the Weight Vest. The technique is as follows: Place the weight vest on a flat bench with the under surface face up. Straddle the bench with the vest in front of you. Slide the dowel side to side under the ridge between the top and second row of the vest. In a short vest it will only have two rows and in a long vest three rows. It works best if more of the weight is loaded in the lower rows. After sliding the dowel beneath the top and second rows buckle the vest upward, lean back slightly, and draw the vest slightly up the abdominal and chest region until one can put the dowel in a shoulder press position. Then press the vest upward until one can slot your head and neck through the opening and then lower to shoulders. Then slide the dowel to the side until it clears the vest.

    This method works extremely well for vests without an add-on vest. I have never tried it with an add-on vest but it might work. By dragging the vest slightly up the torso one can lighten the load of the vest making it easier to get a heavy vest into place without assistance. Initially I used just my hands by slotting my thumbs beneath the crease of the top and second row. This is not a good idea as I learned as it will sprain the thumb. The dowel method works superbly without injuring yourself. Just keep your face away from the vest as you press upward.

    Method for removing the vest from shoulders: After completing your exercise sit back on the bench. Then grip the front top row of plates and shift over the head and onto the shoulder. Then lean slightly to the side away from the vest and slide down the arm and torso back onto the bench.

    Note that the long vests, especially when heavier are quite difficult to put on unless on uses either the above method, some sort of prop or assistance from a training partner. This method works!! It is worth it to spend some time finishing the dowel with sandpaper, including rounding the ends, and then coating with Tung or Watco Oil. It makes the dowel extremely easy to slide beneath the vest without putting wear on the vest.

    One final thought: Weighvest.com has been around for decades and all vests are made in Rexburg. The know how to make a vest that will last a lifetime. Their company has my highest recommendation!!

    Best Wishes,
