Fitness Gear 40 lb Weighted Vest
I bought this to train with and it has helped a ton. Fits nice and snug. Doesnt shift around much. Also the D ring on the front is great for hooking my dogs to. Keeps my hands free for when i want to take him for a run with it on.

i recieved the 40lb vest on dec.25th as a gift, and put it rite to use, i took out every other steel bar, bringing it dwn to about 19 and change, i then ran around Flax Pond in Lynn ma. doin 3 loops total of 7.24 miles, in 1:08 mins, i have also worn the full amount around the house just to get use to the weight,i also did a run w the full amount 2:09 in 35;27 mns,as well as .66 in 5:48, and repeated,and 1:75 in 16:37,and 1mile in 9:37 w full 40lber,and finally 2.75 w half the weight in 24:34, and noticed that on the rear part of fastening straps, it is beginning to fray on both sides, other than that normal wear n tear, it is most comfortable Vest i have ever worn! STRONGLY reccomend, also ZERO cheffing what so ever!!, im goin to bring back to store and address problem, im sure i will have no problem at all, due to its under 30 days old, and for price spent on it!! i will continue to reccommend this product!!

VEST IS THE BEST!!
I have used other weighted vest from competition,I just got as a gift, and It is the Most comfortable vest ever had on!!T:2 4(22" bar weights r easy for removing,I took out 18 and did a slow and steady 7.25 mile loop in Lynn ma,at 1:08 I'm am really Satisfied, would Strongly reccomend this Vest, for price, u get a well constructed,durable vest, and rather than steel shot weights that compact, the steel bars hold and w dual straps around torso, as well as strap adjustments for tightening dwn on shoulders, zero shifting for the runner! TY keep u Posted

This is it! Look no further!
If you've been searching for a weight vest without any luck, look no further! This is the one for YOU! This weight vest fits comfortably on most body types (my father and I have different body types and it fit both of us very comfortably!). The 1 lbs. weights are very easy to take out and put in. The velcro that holds the weights in their pockets is amazingly strong, which is another plus. As long as you place the 1 lbs. weights properly, it has a very nice balance. I wouldn't suggest wearing this vest without a shirt, as the material is a little rough, but if you wear something underneath, you'll be exercising in comfort and style! On a final note; I wouldn't suggest this vest for women, as the vest is a little wide in the shoulders and might not fit snugly.

Man's Best Friend
This vest has been my best friend all summer. I got it at the end of May, and have used it all of summer. 20 pull ups used to be a struggle, now it is way easier. Walking on with it is great because it'll confuse your body in to thinking you're of course 40 pounds heavier. Run after a mile walk with it and you'll breeze through the run. Mine has shown some tear near the straps, but it has not prevented me from using it. The only tear is from the "cosmetic" part of the vest. Does not prevent me from doing anything. I don't even notice it unless I look at it. [$], in my opinion, is worth it. Don't want to ruin my joints, so 40 is the most I'll go up to. To sum it up, great product.

Exactly what he wanted
I bought this as a birtday gift for my son and he loves it. Good quality and he loves that he can adjust the weights easily to match the workout he is doing.
