You're not. Not at all. Not even close.
The clip won't hold the cinch cord in place (seen in video), meaning the vest will never give you a snug fit. You will have to jimmy-rig it just to make it tight, which is inexcusable. The pockets for the weights are poorly constructed and it takes entirely too long to insert and remove the weights. The underarm area will rub a rash on you. The zipper will not stay up all the way when you really start moving around.
These are all issues that EASILY could've been fixed, and certainly should have been at this price point. Maybe I could overlook one of these issues, if the rest of the vest was well made and worth the price tag, but as it stands now, you're better off getting a $50 weight vest.
As for style, the worst I've gotten is "nice corset." It does sort of resemble one, if I'm being honest.
I'm seeing early signs of the material wearing out where I've stacked two weights. If you want the full 25lb, you have to put two weights in each pocket. This creates a somewhat sharp bulging ridge where one weight overlaps another. It's unclear whether the material will wear out and drop the weights. It would be nice if they had used a heavier alloy to make these weights, so customers wouldn't need to cram two in each pocket.
One final note: the 25lb variant is just the 15lb variant with two 5-lb boxes of weights included. You must insert the weights yourself.

I have been running 5 times a week for about two years and I felt I had plateaued, I was not seeing much progress lately. So I decided to add weight and this vest was recommended on several "best weighted vests" lists. It comes pre-filled with 10 lbs and 10 extra pounds in boxes. I decide to not add more weight at first as it was already making a big difference. It was really hard at first, but you get used to it. Then I added 5 pounds a month later, which was mistake, the big weight difference was like starting all over again. so Instead, I slowly added weight over time until I reached the 20 lbs.
The result? I have made huge progress in just three months. I run with the vest during the week and without during the week end. My pace has greatly increased, it used to be around 5:30 min/Km. Now when I don't wear the vest, it's around 5:10 without even trying, and under 5:00 when pushing a bit harder. My legs feel much stronger overall and I can tell they got bigger. Like I said, I had been running regularly for the past 2 years, and I have seen more changes and progress in the last 3 months running with the vest than in the last year.
Now in order to get these results, I had to run 10km almost every day for two months, it won't do miracle if you only go run once a week (but still, it should help)
Now about the vest itself, I have been using it almost daily and so far so good, no sign of wear. The way it's designed is great: beside the extra weight, which is the point, it does not bother you when running, with the weight spread evenly. You can even move the weight around : I like to have a bit more at the top than the bottom. But you won't feel unbalanced like you had one massive 20 lbs weight strapped to your chest.
Some people complained about the fastening system on the side. It's true, it was not holding in place for me either, but I just tied a knot right after the fastener and it has not bothered me since.
Overall I'm very happy with it but I only give 4 stars because 400 CAD is still very expensive.
