Support that was missing from running with the vest, great add on
I'm one of those unfortunate ones that have the vest bounce while running. The 40 lb box vest still bounces when I run but I dont feel it on my chest as most now. Compared to my old vest the pad absorbes about 80% of the weight.
For me they were good.
I ran about a mile in my new short, narrow 45 lb vest and noticed some slack in the vest around my chest with bouncing - very uncomfortable. Went back and hooked up the pad, went back out for another mile and problem solved! Forms to my back and chest - LIKE A GLOVE!

If your're going to be running or jogging I recommend getting one of these. I never wear my 60lb short VForce without it.
This simple and great addition makes the runs so much better by taking away some of the bounce. Well worth the additional cost.
This is a little great piece of ingunuety. Completely eliminates the bouncing of the vest while running! Comfortable, you don't even know it's there. Works perfect with the 45lb vest.
I use the pad with a 50#, wide shoulder weight vest for many things including box jumps and short repeated sprints. It offers increased comfort from the padding and increased air flow to my chest keeping me a bit cooler. You have to play around with the positioning for maximum effectiveness. It makes the vest feel more secure and less tight. Vest bounces around less with the pad and allows deep breathing easier.
