Pros: Half vest with breathing areas to vent and keep the weight up high for a high center of balance keeping the weight on your shoulders with no flapping around or excess movement of vest.
Weights can be bought commercially for low cost and they fix securely in the vest and do not slide around. It takes the old small weight hole types and not the Olympic large hole plates. The 2 1/2lb, 5lb weights fit fine to outfit the vest from 20,30,40lbs.
Use standard 1 inch holed weight plates, Olympic 2inch center holed plates will not fit this vest.
You can run a reflective belt or wrist reflectors through the top pockets to create a reflective vest for night use / add a red flashing LED clip on bike lamp for night use near roads attached to the back shoulder of the vest. It holds the weight up high to keep balance and agility. Other vests hold the weight low that causes awkwardness or imbalance / lower back issues / over heating.
A red flashing LED light sells at Wally world in the bike section and runs off of AAA batteries for about $9 and is push button activated on and off with a clip that can be zip tied shut to wear you mount it on things so it will not come off.
A great vest to use for weight resistance training without having to deal with bulky packs etc.
Cons: None that I have found so far.
Be advised that the plates used to fit the pouches are "USA Sports Grey Standard Weight Plates" with one inch center diameters.
The 2.5lb and 5lb weights fit the pockets. You can fit two 5lb weights per pocket. Start with a 20lb vest (5lb in each pocket) to see what you like first.
Olympic 2 inch center hole plates will not fit this vest.Read more ›
For the price I wouldn't buy it again. I only actually used it about 20-25 times (a generous estimate) before it broke, so that's about two dollars a use, without factoring in the cost of the 8x5lbs plates @ about five dollars a piece, which means it cost me about four dollars per use.
[Update 4/18/13] I did gamble and I purchased a spool of Kevlar thread from Amazon and spent a few hours hand stitching the broken pouch back on. It all seems to be secured now. I've worn it (cautiously) a few times already and it performs as new. Also I'm not so paranoid anymore that the other pouches are going to rip away. I added a star back to the rating because I do like the vest enough to repair it. It would be 4 stars easily if I hadn't need to fix it so soon into it's life.
1) Already owns 20-40lbs of standard size 2.5lb and/or 5lb plates
2) Plans to use the vest for bodyweight workouts, not running
3) Does not plan to change to the amount of weight in the vest during a workout
It doesn't work well for running. It doesn't include weights or fit olympic size plates. Doesn't fit 10lb standard plates. You need 8x5lb standard size plates to make this a 40lb vest. The process for securing the weights is kind of annoying, but it works. You definitely need to use the securing straps or the weights will fall out.
Basically, if you're doing a workout where you need weighted pullups or squats and you already own a bunch of small standard plates, this is an inexpensive way to get into a weighted vest. Everyone else, spend another $25-50 and buy something else or you will be disappointed.
