Nice half vest for weight resistance running / climbing / exercise.

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.

It lasted from January 27, 2013 until April 6, 2013. The back left bottom section of the pouch (very important piece) ripped and my 2x5lbs plates fell out the bottom and took off down the road. Up until this point I liked the vest. I'm going to try to sew it back together but my skills with a thread and a needle leave a lot to be desired and on top of that it has to withstand 10+lbs of weight bearing down on it. I don't know if I can trust the structural integrity or the craftsmanship any further. If I do manage to fix it I will always be paranoid that 8x5lbs plates are on the brink of breaking free at any moment and that they'll jump into traffic or smash my legs/feet/toes. This is unfortunate.

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.

The vest is built very well. I can't imagine it ever ripping. There are a lot of straps to hold the plates in place. The only problem that I have is adding the entire 40 pounds to the vest. The pockets are too small to add 10 pound plates. I went to the website and it showed that you can put two 5 pound plates in each of the pockets. Unfortunately, I tried that with the slimmest plates I could find, and the pockets won't close fully. It seems like it would be a quick fix. However, for the price, it is a great solid vest and is very comfortable.

I think this vest is perfect for the appropriate user:
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.

This vest serves it's purpose. I ordered this for my husband because it was a reasonable price. It was very difficult to figure out how to strap it on and comes with very little instruction, thanks to youtube he was able to figure it out. Also, this vest DOES NOT fit olympic weights, but the other weights are sold in local sports stores, but if you can find someone giving away the old skool weights then it's a plus. Also, the use of metal weights somewhat limits your activity level. We currently do insanity which is a lot of up and down movements, you can not use this vest for those motions because the metal can end up hitting you in the head or face. If you can get past these few issues then it's a good buy. FYI - my husband is 5'9" and about 190lbs with a broad athletic build and he likes the way it fits.
