It will be a great addition to your training sessions.
EJ
To keep the vest from moving around during a workout, I would pull on the elastic straps to get a snug fit.
Ronnie F. Castillo
I still wish it looked more like a piece of clothing and opened in front.

I am a pretty serious runner, averaging at least 40 miles a week (I've run two marathons) and I also do Hatha Yoga daily (with some unique modifications to make it more difficult). Formerly, I was a serious weightlifter. This information is provided to understand my review.
Most recommendations for first time weight vest runners is to start with about 2.5% above your weight for the vest. Clearly, this recommendation is to fend off litigous people who don't understand the increased difficulty when running with a weight vest and then have a problem and blame the manufacturer. I weigh about 150 lbs., and it is perfect for me.
I started with several easy five to six milers. During the run, I immediately noticed the effects after starting one route for my run which starts with a large incline. I would not recommend that. Rather, warm up slightly longer to get both your breathing and body used to the weight. Also, PLEASE be careful as the inevitable problems outdoor runners experience, i.e., rocks, curbs, or uneven sidewalks can be much more dangereous. Your achilles/ankle area will be very sensitive and any trip or loss of balance could be dangereous. Of course, I ran at a slower pace than I usually do, but overall found the normal run to be perfect with the weight vest. I stretched and did Yoga afterwards and I would certainly recommend you stretch afterwards, too. The next day, I did feel sore, but in a good, "long run of the week" way. I did not experience any pain. After several "normal" runs with the vest, I embarked on my twice weekly hill training session. It was AWESOME. Climbing the long hill that I normally do repeats on was intense. Going down the same hill was challenging as well.

Bought two vests a year ago (2006) for climbing team members. The vests are used and abused three days a week by climbers not interested in treating them kindly. They've held up to the punishment. Being able to remove all the weights is great as the climbers work with a percentage of their body weight. Being able to have all the weights in is great for mom who wears the vest on weekends (cleaning house, gardening, etc). Easy way to get exercise while doing household chores.

The overall vest was good. However, on the elastic portion where the sewn on velcro begins seemed to be a weak area. only after a few uses it began to tear. To keep the vest from moving around during a workout, I would pull on the elastic straps to get a snug fit. The elastic strap is what began to tear on both sides. Maybe this could be reinforced with velcro sewn on the entire straps. Thank you.

I have only been using this for a short time but find that it does have some value. I would have preferred to have a vest that opened in the front, instead of having to pull over my head, but couldn't find one and that's OK, I can live with it. Currently I have about six pounds of weights in my vest and it does make a difference. I have noticed some improvement in my core section. I wear the vest while Nordic-tracking, walking, and doing some chores and yard work. I would warn that adding weight is hard on the knees, I do not have knee problems of any kind but I notice a difference when I am wearing the vest which makes sense because people who have knee problems and are heavy are always encouraged to lose weight because every pound of excess weight adds approx. 12 lbs. (I think) of added pressure on the knees and I can see that it's true. If you have bad knees I think the vest would be a bad idea. 8/2008, now that the weather is nice I wear this outside on walks. I am constantly asked by passersby why I am wearing a bullet-proof vest (even though it says GO FIT on it!), it really does look like one. I still wish it looked more like a piece of clothing and opened in front.

I had bought this vest primarily for pushups but when i tried it on i had noticed that most of the weight was positioned on my mid to lower back area. i was concerned that a.) it may end up causing my form to be compromised and b.) i may also end up ultimately injuring my self or at the very least not reaping the full benefit. otherwise i supposed itd be an okay vest for other exercises that didn't matter if it hung a little low eg pullups, dips.. maybe.. i would NOT recommend this for running or even walking unless you keep your back straight and have perfected your form as you may injure yourself with the lower center of gravity and weight. so at the end of it all i decided to return it and go with the "mir short style vest" that was twice as much but was designed with (virtually) all the weight on the upper back and chest area (which may in fact be superior to most vests out there..) hope this helps!

Okay, I am a female and have been walking for more than 10 years now, and needed to step it up without a gym or in home machine...

After my first try of this vest, I realize it makes you hotter because of the material its made of which is vinyl-like. So be prepared to heat up much faster when wearing this vest.

My shoulders are what notice the weight the most- I figured that. They get sore within the first minute of wearing the vest. But then again I also do not use a backpack to school for that same reason-- I have weak shoulders that get very sore very quickly.

But those are the ONLY 'negatives' to this vest-- otherwise I wouldn't even notice I was wearing it at all!

I just hope it helps me to lose my extra weight. :)
