    Loved this product the second I had it out of the container. I use it solely for walking at this point, but look forward to incorporating it into my strength and interval workouts as well. Comfortable fit, durable, adjustable weights (which are included!)and a sweet take-no-crap kevlar look. Three small shortcomings to be aware of: I practice bagua circle walking and it’s a little difficult to raise my arms directly in front of my body while wearing the vest(overhead pressing is definitely possible, but also a bit unnatural; I’ve been walking around with half the load (20 lbs) and wearing it high looked sort of ridiculous under a jacket, even boxlike. I alleviated this by loading the weights into the lower containers, thereby giving a more natural appearance. Still, when I’ve worked up to 40 lbs., the same problem will arise. But hey, I’m seeking excellent conditioning here, not a reproductive partner; there’s pretty much no way you could wear this openly in public without giving off the strong odors of swat team/bank robber. Social stigmas aside, this vest satisfies all the needs I had for workouts and will continue to do so for years. It’s definitely sturdily made, and the removable loop and velcro waistband could feasibly accommodate many body sizes. What more could I ask for in a piece of exercise equipment?

    this weighted vest is no joke. as another reviewer pointed out, there is absolutely no way you can go out in public wearing this item without sparking comments about SWAT team/kevlar vests. for me personally, couple the bada** look of the ZFO vest with the fact that A) i’m a woman and B) i wear it while running, and the hardcase look is complete! this is my second vest – the first topped out at 20lbs, and i use this one currently at 32lbs. it has many improvements over my first vest (different brand, completely different style).

    figuring out exactly how to put this thing together when it first arrives is a little confusing. it comes in pieces. there are no directions in the box, and the website leaves one with more questions than answers. just youtube it: there are a couple of easy-to-follow vids out in the interwebz made by users. once you put it together and fit it properly, this monster hugs you tight (double abdomen straps? sweet!) and forces you to have excellent posture (bonus!). having the flexibility to make minute adjustments to the straps is fantastic.

    like other weight vests, folks, this one will give you fatigue in your shoulders. please stop complaining about it and accept it as part of the training — it simply goes with the territory, kids.

    for running, this vest allows for free and easy arm movement.

    my only real complaint is the chafing. to be absolutely fair, as i already mentioned i am a woman (seems like this bad boy is used mostly by fellas). i am physically fit, but i have an ample bosom. to date i have not figured out a way to adjust both straps properly so that either one or the other is not chafing me somewhere across my front. since this does not seem to be a complaint by other users, i am going to chalk it up to my own physical attributes and will continue to try and figure out a good balance.
