4.0 out of 5 stars Great, if you don't have boobs! 29 Jan 2014
Length: 2:08 Mins
We all know that gravity is a breast's worst enemy, but strapping weights on top of them can only compound the gravity problem. It is definitely a bad idea if you want to keep 'em at all perky. As you can see in the video the weights on this vest are located in the "pectoral-area," which is fine for men, but for a woman with any amount of boobage it quickly becomes uncomfortable. I am only a B-cup but after wearing this vest for a few minutes the girls felt very squished and deflated. I don't know what the longterm effects of using this vest might be, but I'm not interested in finding out!

About ten years ago I had a chance to demo a weight vest designed by a woman for women, The Walkvest, which loads the weights around the waist and then tightens them down with a strap so there was no noticeable compression on my breasts. A Weight Belt is another option that might be better for women.

I gave this product four stars because it seems really well-made and easy-to-use, but it should be marketed as a men's product. Perhaps the company could produce a similar vest for women that moves the weights down to waist level allowing women to enjoy the obvious benefits without damaging delicate breast tissue.

I always find it helpful when I can watch a video review showing a product in use - it oftentimes helps me to understand the product better than I can from the manufacturer's written description. I've been inspired by the great video reviews I've seen on Amazon, so I hope my video review helps you in a similar way.

Take care,
Claire

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for running/plyometric training too! 10 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Though there are more expensive vests out there, I found this vest to be of really good quality for the price you pay for it. I'd say it's well worth your money.

It all depends of course what you're going to use it for. If your main focus is on strength, you may not want to buy this product as it's maximum load is only 10lbs (5kg). There are other vests out there that can take much more load (even up to 50lbs) which are good for doing pull-ups, push-ups, dips, squats and other strength exercises.

However, if you wish to run with a vest or do some plyometric exercises involving lots of jumping, then this vest would be a better option. I just took it out of the box and tried the 'bounce test'. Unlike the other weighted vests I tried out before, this vest doesn't bob up and down whilst jumping. In my opinion this vest would suit runners quite well as it doesn't take too much load, feels very comfortable on the shoulders, has a breathable mesh all around, doesn't ride on the stomach, and most importantly does not bob up and down.

Another plus I've found with this vest is that it suits people of smaller stature. I'm 1.74cm (+/-5'9") and 66kg myself (this is small for a Dutch person believe me) and the vest fits me quite well, whereas previous weighted vests were much too big. The velcro straps around the chest really make sure the vest fits as tight as you want it to be. In my case there is ample velcro left to fit even smaller persons, so I'd say it'd make a pretty good unisex weighted vest.

Though I mentioned the max load is 5kg, the weight is variable according to how many 250g pouches you insert in the vest.

Wanted to get weight vest for some time but didnt want one that was too long (im 5'7") this seemed to fit the bill.

its excellent i run step sprints once week and this add enough weight to make it more challenging, its snug, comfortable and moulds nicely thanks to the flexible weights, just the right length and doesn't move too much

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome piece of kit. 30 Dec 2012
By BRUNO

Fits very well and doesn't bounce or slip. Love the fact that you can add or remove weights to suit progressive training. Word of caution for newbies to running with weighted vests... make sure core is engaged so that you run upright and do not slump. Good form with weights means good results.
