My husband brought this for me for a gift. He was told they run small. That wasn't true for me. He got me a large, and he can fit in it too. It is big, but I put a safety pin to keep it closed, and wear a vest underneath. The medium would have been perfect for me. The vest is pretty comfy. My other complaint is that it doesn't come with that many weights.
Have 6 pounds, he bought extra ones for me, and I already need more. Most vests come with more weights. I do enjoy the way it is made, and it looks good on. Some of the other vest, are so bulky. I would have given this a 5 star, but since the weights are so expensive, and hard to get I give it a 4, and they are not true to size.
All in all, I think that this vest has helped me loose some weight. I think that this vest, is the best choice for my needs.

Being an Asian woman, I worry about loss of bone density so turned to weight vests to help prevent that. Studies have shown (as noted by my mother's ob/gyn doctor) that weight vests do make a positive impact on bone density.

For reference, I am 5'1" and 107 lbs.

DEBBIE ROCKER WALKVEST
The Original Walkvest Training System by Debbie Rocker
I've had the WalkVest for years, though I've only used it on and off. It was my first weigh vest so I had nothing to compare it to. I ordered the small, which was still too big for me. I didn't mind the girth too much since the straps allowed me to tighten as much as I wanted. However, the length was somewhat of a problem. The weights went down past my hip and the vest felt like it was just hanging down, rather than being close to my body. Since I was just walking, it wasn't too big of a deal as far as comfort. My biggest concern about that was if/how that hanging weight would affect my posture. I have a tendency towards very bad posture and chronic back pain as a result, so I try to be conscientious about things like posture and the distribution of my weight as I walk and stand.

My solution around the extra length was to pull the bottom of the vest up on my body and cinch the waist strap very snugly higher up my torso. The strap was strong enough to hold the vest up like this during my walks. The downside was that I then had a great deal of fabric from the vest puffed out in front of my chest. Not at all attractive. I wouldn't want to be seen in public like that, but during my solitary walks at the park with only the dogs to see me up close, it was fine.

I have been using this vest for one month now and I must say it is comfortable and makes me work harder. I am just now starting to get use to the added weight when I walk, my body is adjusting and I wont know for a few more months what kinds of additional benefits I will see. I wear a size 12 and bought a medium and it fits me very well, I did not add all the weights yet (two left) I wanted to gradually add as I became stronger.
The vest is a little pricey but there is not a lot of choices out there and I am happy with the fit and concept.

June 4, 2011---I have been using this vest now for months and I am using all the weights, I am stronger and in much better shape. I love it, it fits me well and looks great on. I hand wash it every few weeks and hang it up to dry. It's great, I am glad I bought it.

I have been using the Walkvest for about 3 weeks. The Walkvest is very well made and I like that the weights are added evenly. The CDs that come with the vest help make it a training tool to get your heart rate up.
Shipping was expensive so I ordered all the weights at the time I ordered the vest saving money on the shipping.
Three things I don't like about the vest. 1 - for me it is HOT to wear, it's black and soaks up the sun and one sweats a lot. 2 - It is 100% cotton, which means once it gets wet it stays wet. They should have made one of the newer sports martial that helps remove the water and keep one dry. 3 - It is black and if you walk after dark it is hard to see you. It does seem to have a reflexive "WV" but they are not very visible / noticeable

Although I am happy to have and use the weighted vest, I'm a little disappointed in its practicality. The vest does not stay closed and it tends to slip a little in the shoulders, so I'm constantly having to re-adjust it. I actually use it while exercising on WiiFit and WiiFit Plus -- maybe the fact that I'm moving my arms a lot has something to do with the slipping.

I've only had my walkvest for about 2 weeks, and I use it 5 days a week. I haven't seen any results yet, but I am hoping that it works. I like the feel of the vest and it hangs ok with movement. Too bad it only comes with 4 lbs of weights. I checked the Debbie Rocker site for additional weights and the prices are ridiculous for shipping and handling, so I searched online elsewhere and got additional weights for only a fraction of the cost for shipping versus the amount DR was asking for on her site. I would love to write another review after about 3 months to report my results. Right now I would give it 3 stars.
