i really like this vest. first, is as comfortable as it could get. i like the quality material that is made of.
i use it to do all my workouts except when im lying flat on the floor,. i use it to go running and it stays put and it doesnt hurt my shoulders. 12 lbs is a good poundage to be carrying around, is not a lot of weight nor a little bit.. im 5' 5" so i think the pounds are perfect for me because im not looking to get tired and exhausted carrying this on but rather i look forward to enhance all my workouts carrying with something i can bare.
The vest fits around the body fine but I am not able to use the snap belt due to large breasts. a woman would have to be small to medium build to be able to snap the belt and do something like situps.
I wanted to amp up my cardio regime and this vest does exactly that. You burn more calories, build your tolerance, tone and enhance your muscle with the added weight. I use it mainly for cardio: running, cycling, and the eliptical. I've been using it lately, while doing push ups, pull ups and dips. Wow! you can really feel the difference. I've gotten so many compliments on the increased muscle definition in my upper body, legs and butt. The only negative comment: I wish I could remove the weights and throw it in the wash vs. hand washing after each use. You WILL work up a sweat!!
My son (13 y/o) is on the autism spectrum. You'd never know unless you spent a little time with him.....weight on his joints and back are particularly calming to him. This vest is not too heavy and small profile enough that he can wear it under his clothes at school (he's very concerned about standing out and being different, so concealment is key for him).
This vest works GREAT for him. It seems well built, it does not have any smell other than what you generally get with neoprene. Totally happy with this and when he wrecks or loses the one he's got, I will for SURE be getting another!
This vest is great. It is not too heavy or too light. I got it in a timely manner and immediately started using it. It has helped tone my stomach (wear it while doing my situps) and with my walking. I can't wait to wear it in the summer time.
Most of the weight in this vest resides on your back when you wear it as intended. This feels awkward and very unnatural to me, so I just turned it around! This makes it a fantastic training vest for a man, in fact I imagine it feels much the weight of a bra might for some women. This product won't work for some women - look at the photo I attached of the photo on the box cover. But it's so inexpensive! As currently priced, you'll buy two of these and wear them simultaneously in opposite directions and it would only cost half what a 20 pound vest would. Or just give one away as a Christmas gift. Incredible value for someone looking to make their workouts tougher.
This is a great product! I have noticed that my stamina has already improved since I started using it about a month ago.
It fits very comfortably and is nicely distributed, I bought this for running and i could really feel it working in my legs. Have only used it once, but expect great results. I am in the army and im using this to lower my run time for APFT, It is however a little pricey, i paid just over $35 for it in store, looks like it is cheaper on line so if you can wait for it i would recommend site to store.
My doctor recommended that I get this to wear while doing stuff around the house. He said it would help keep my posture straight and was easy to work in. He was right about the easy part, not sore after wearing it for a few hours.
The vest fits well. It is even weight and I forget it's on. I walk about 2.5 miles a day.
I was really looking forward to using the 12 pound weight vest, but unfortunately, it was very uncomfortable to wear. I got terrible neck and shoulder pain from it and there was no way to adjust the fit except for the chest strap. It needed a way to tighten the fit over the shoulders. I had to return it.
12 lbs is heavier than you think, but I love it!!! I wore it for over 4 hours the first day while working clearing brush and cutting down trees. It is awesome. I have been trying to lose weight slowly, but have come to a plateau and looking forward to using the vest to assist in my weight loss and strengthening my back.
I purchased this vest to increase the intensity of my Wii walking game... which it does. It feels like I am exercising at 20% more effort. If I were to wear the vest outside, it has a handy optional pouch for cell phone or other items. I also wear it while using resistance bands. The large armhole area allows for a wide range of motion. The filler product appears to be made of sand or some other heavy substance. The instructions say "do not wash" and most likely it would fall apart if washed the normal way. The strap/fastener for the vest fits across the upper part of the chest. I measure 37" and the strap could increase another 8". I was a little worried that the vest would not be heavy enough, but everyone who picks it up says "THIS is 12 pounds!?" It is a useful product at a good price.
I searched the internet high and low to find a weight vest that didn't look like I had a bullet proof vest on. Turns out my training partner had a weight vest like this one but made by a different company with no logo on the vest. I finally came across this vest on another site and decided I would buy it and found it on Walmarts online site cheaper than anywhere else.
I wear this vest will doing cardio kickboxing, jogging, walking, and pretty much every time I workout. When first using the vest you will find that your shoulders will hurt until you get used to it, while 12lbs might not sound like much it will greatly increase the challenge of any workout you have already been doing.
The vest has been holding up very well and is very comfortable to wear for long periods of time, great investment for the money.
Fit is snug so it will not bounce around while being used.
May be to small for bigger folks. I am 5'9, 150#.
Appears to be well made. Time will tell how well it holds up.
For 12.00 it is a great value.
I would like to state that I like as far as for female weighted vest the 8 lb. vest also available at Walmart. The feel is just better and I like how it snaps on the abdomen for support. This vest is mostly for shoulders and upper back and the fit isn't that comfortable. But I am making do with this product and it is supplying my workout needs.
the product is okay it has a really strong gasoline scent to it when u take it off the scent sticks to you hopefully it'll go away after a couple of washes the fit isnt bad im 5'1" and was pretty happy with it
great product, great price highly recommend it if you want extra weight while working out.
Great for wearing around the house doing chores...not too heavy not too light.
Wanted a weight vest to help lose weight. Perfect weight for working out and is comfortable to wear.
