Product Description

This MiR Weighted vest comes with a full set of weights that can be adjusted from 3 to 60lbs to increase the resistance adeptness. For the purpose of weight loss, the removable weights are located high on the torso to protect the stomach from pounding as you run and also is delicate to the whole body while exercising. The vest is made of heavy-duty 1200D reinforced nylon, featuring double padded shoulders for added comfort, and mesh vented inside for breath ability. The padding is designed to be contoured to your shoulder for maximum comfort. The MiR Weighted Vests are completely adjustable for even more comfort. There are two adjustable straps that can be adjusted underneath so you can easily adjust the body length of the vest by sliding the straps up and down through the D-rings. To adjust the weight level, remove or transfer the weights from the packets which secure the weights with the durable Velcro weight closures. MIR SECURE STRAP. (Optional).

Buy this, surprise yourself, and get fit.

A lot of the bounce really stems from movement in your upper body having weight on it and not the vest itself.

Overall materials and construction may look good in pictures, but in your hands is obviously inferior.

I've had other weight suits in the past that weren't great, they'd bounce around during exercises and eventually rip. I tried doing a lot of research before investing in another weight vest and it was down to either MiR or XVest. As far as I can tell from reviews, both MiR and XVest seem like good quality. I can tell from personal experience that the material MiR is made out of is very strong, it holds the 60 pounds well and doesn't bounce around during exercises. I do a lot of different exercises too. Sprints, jumps, pull ups, etcetera. The reason I went with MiR instead of XVest, is because based on what I read about them, the MiR vest is shorter, which I figured would make it easier if you want to wear a dipping belt or weighted belt in conjunction with the vest (because I can do pull ups with some massive weight). Also, the weight with the MiR vest is concentrated more on the upper body which I figured would be better for push ups and similar exercises. Also also, MiR costs less especially for the amount of weight you get.

I'm very satisfied with this weighted vest, it's everything I wanted for a good price, and it performs very well!

Great product very sturdy and I was surprised that the weight (even at 60 pounds) doesn't take as much of a toll on you. The weight is evenly distributed and makes for a great use (even if the task is running).

This vest is okay (easy to assemble, easy to adjust the weight), but it has two major drawbacks:
1) The shoulder pads. These are a fixed distance apart, and that distance is very narrow. I found that this vest rested on my traps more than anything else, and it definitely started cutting off my circulation. And I'm a pretty small guy (5'6", 145 lbs), so I'd hate to think how poorly this would sit on someone bigger. The shoulder padding is decent, but it doesn't help that much.
2) This vest will bounce around. Granted, it's possible to tighten the vest so that it doesn't bounce around, but if you do, the vest will restrict your breathing. This basically means that you won't be getting a good workout from any sort of cardio or endurance exercises. Push-ups or pull-ups might be okay, but things like squat thrusts are nearly impossible with a vest design like this.

Let me first say that this weighted vest is fantastic. The short narrow style makes it ideal for pullups and workouts that require range of motion. (I personally use it for P90X pullups, pushups, and leg workouts) Setting up the velcro straps was slightly confusing and took maybe 15 minutes to figure out, but other than that I have very few complaints. The vest smells like freshly manufactured polymers. Pretty sure this smell will disappear before too long. There were some people that reviewed narrow style MIR vests poorly because of discomfort they experienced while wearing the vest. It does sit on the traps somewhat, and it bothered my left trap for a little while. After I shifted it around though, it became more comfortable. I could see how this might be a problem if you have monstrous traps, but I suspect any type of narrow style weighted vest must inevitably sit on the traps to allow upward range of motion for the arms.

By student on November 26, 2010
I ordered and received the MiR 60Lbs Short Adjustable Weighted Vest. It arrived quickly. The vest itself is way too narrow to fit me - and I'm only a 42 chest. The one-size-fits-all claim by the manufacturer is NOT realistic: while it adjusts for length, it can't be functionally adjusted for width, since the load bearing straps are anchored in set locations and will center on that plane... which, for me, concentrated the weight way too close to my neck. There is no angular contour in the vest, and even trying to angle the velcro joint makes no improvement. So, instead of bearing on my bones in the shoulders, the 60 pound load hung from my trapezius muscles which is uncomfortable for any length of time, and not the proper or healthy way to support weight on the shoulders. My present (old and worn Ironwear) weight vest has 40 pounds in it, but remains comfortable.

The materials MiR used to construct the actual pockets which hold the weights are a strong webbing, but the material used for the body of the vest is actually quite thin woven polypropylene, and the foam inside is thin junk. The sewing of the pockets to the vest is a single line with no bar-tacking or reinforcement. Overall materials and construction may look good in pictures, but in your hands is obviously inferior. I really don't know how this product got so many positive reviews. Additionally, the photos are distorted to make the vest look wider than it is!

The return was not easy or inexpensive either... My local post office would not permit a flat rate box to bulge even a little, unlike the post office in San Jose which MiR uses, so I had to ship back using Priority Mail which costs 4 times as much.

Even better than I expected!! This purchase was worth the extra cash, provided you will use it. It's much more low profile and far less bulky than other vests, which was one of the main characteristics that attracted me to this vest upon viewing. The construction is solid. The straps are secure and easy enough to figure out if you just look at a few pictures of the vest online or in the paperwork that arrives with the vest. The vest can be fitted by the wearer but is easier if you have someone else there to help you.
As far as some of the other negative reviews go, I have had no issues with the size of the head hole when putting on/taking off the vest. If you have a big head, then it may rub your ears a bit, but I haven't had any issues. The weight does wear on your shoulders and traps a little but, come on, you just strapped 60 extra pounds on. The weight has to rest somewhere. I start to feel some discomfort after about 25min but this is to be expected and it's not bad enough to make me stop what I'm doing. i imagine it's only a matter of time before my body gets used to it. Weights are really easy to add/remove when the vest is off, just push from the bottom of each pouch. Addition and removal of all rows except for the top row would be difficult while wearing.
All in all, drop the extra cash on this item if you plan on using it regularly. It's comfortable and looks like it will last a long time. I use it primarily to run the stairs in my building and my legs and lungs get smoked every time.
