Best vest I have tried. Minimal bounce when I run in it. Relatively comfortable on the shoulders although no weight vest really is after an hour

I bought this for my daughter. She wants to practice to be prepared for swat try outs at work. I asked around and this weighted vest was reccommend by one of the swat members. He has had it for years and said it is very well made. I agree!

This is the brand my department uses. I actually tried out a couple of cheeper brands, and none of them really sat right on my shoulders. I went ahead and ordered one of these and of course it fit just right. This is way more important than you might think when your situating this much weight on your shoulder. These are worth the money.

Have purchased three previous vests, VMax and Box, for fire station gym and annual Wildland Pack testing.
Bought this V-Max, 45# with WIDE shoulder straps to see if it carried better/differently; it DOES. Just a bit more comfortable! The color options are nice to make it easier for testing and keeping track of multiple firefighters testing at the same time.
Also purchased this one to increase some options for at home exercise programs.
We have, and also use a few other manufacturer vests; They do not compare to Weightvest.com quality, comfort, durability or value. When given the option personnel always select the weightvest.com products.
Have NEVER been disappointed with Weghtvest.com products! Thank you.

This vest is well made and I highly recommend it.
The vest fits well and seems built to last. I use it for walking to increase my heart rate while not hurting my knees like running would.

This vest is amazing; I just received it in the mail and I already love it. The weight is distributed properly to limit stress on the back, knees, and shoulders! Even though it says shipping will take 2-3 weeks, I received mine 2 weeks early!! Only took 8 days to get here and I am impressed with the quality of this vest. Nobody can beat American Made products in my book. This is just another reason why I love my country!
Daniel Warner –
Amazing quality, but so heavy. Great for push ups or pull ups and you can even run in it if you secure it tightly enough. I would still recommend the 45lb version since the weights are so easy to remove.

I enjoy working out with the TRX because I can do so outside and because at 56 using my own body weight makes good sense. However, I was forced to up my reps to get a decent work out, and at a certain point, I didn’t think I was realizing the benefits I wanted, ergo, my interest in a weight vest. And in fact the V-Force has considerably improved my use of the TRX. So if you’re a TRXer, you need to get one!I priced several weight vests, and though the V-Force was more expensive than the others, I was impressed by the reviews it received. So I paid the extra bucks, and I think that it’s worth the price.
Wow, I have used it only for a week, ran with it, did pull ups, push ups, dips, squat jumps, I’m only 155lbs used only 20-25 lbs for the above exercises, and was sweating faster and doing half the reps I felt I got a great workout , on top of a very nice vest that is put together and made very well.Super fast shipping for such a heavy product as well.

I currently workout at home and mostly use bodyweight training. I felt it was time to add some weight and after about a month of searching decided on this. This vest can be incorporated in to most of my workouts and i have already started to see gains, both in terms of strength and size. It is also more comfortable than I thought since I have seen reviews of other with this complaint. It is costly but if you need a good piece of home workout equipment it is highly recommended.

Im 5’9 140lbs lean. Only complaint is i get some minor chaffing on my lateral pecs when doing pullups. Cant imagine if i didn’t get the narrow vest.
