Reviews of RUNFast/Max Pro Weighted Vest
Review 1: Great vest for the price. Makes my quads burn!
I bought this for training during running and to add some weight when climbing stairs. I considered a women’s specific version but the prices were crazy. This vest was reasonably priced and had good reviews so I thought I’d give it a try. The first thing I noticed were the extra weights the company included in the package. Granted, they’re only sand bags, but it was a nice gesture and makes my 40lb vest a 60lb vest.
When I put it on, I noticed the dual straps hold it very securely and lock it down pretty good. I expected a lot more slipping around but it didn’t move very much. I was also expecting it to constrict my breathing, a problem I’ve had with other weight vests. Maybe it’s because the sand pouches are softer than solid metal weights, but I actually found this pretty comfortable to wear. I have worn it numerous times for stair climbing and other than the brutal burning in my quads, I hardly noticed it was there. A sure sign it was going its job!!
Review 2: A good value with a caveat
Just posting initial impressions. Seems pretty durable and a good value for the price. Velcro straps are large and should last awhile. If you are used to training with the old school military flak jackets, then this will be right up your alley. If you are used to the new ones or are expecting something akin to a backpacking setup, you will be disappointed.
The waist strap is external not internal, so your hips are not bearing any of the load. It is all on your shoulders. You may want to reduce the weight accordingly. Bottom line is your shoulders are going to get tired before your legs, so whether this is a good fit for you really depends on what your focus is.
Review 3: Great cheap alternative.
I got this to train for my firefighter PAT a month before. Worked out great, really helped me get prepared (and pass). I only recommend using it for stairs though. Its already pretty uncomfortable and hard on the shoulders, but running with it the worst. Cant get tight enough without cutting of breathing to stop it from bouncing and oh god the rashes. But using it for circuits and stairs was more than bearable. Cant beat it for the price.
