Okay ladies, it’s your time to shine! Check out this cool vest and rejoice in the variety of sizes-you can enjoy a 4, 8 or 16 lb. vest that goes easily over the head and spreads evenly across your upper body.
The weight is distributed oh so well with this vest. Your daily walks or runs will become much more intense, and your squats-well, let’s just say you’re gonna get that peach booty you have been wishing for!
In all seriousness, this is a great vest that is designed to fit women especially. There is even a small pocket just right for keys, money or even a small mp3 player. It’s adjustable to 48 inches to fit ladies of all sizes and you will be working out like a pro in no time.
There are even reflective strips for added safety while you walk around.
Here is another nice over the back vest that is not too intrusive-especially for the ladies. When we tried it out, it reminded us of wearing one of those CamelBak hydration packs. You can get this one in a variety of sizes.
You can buy it ranging anywhere from 4 pounds if you want a light workout or 20 lbs. if you want a challenging workout. There is also nice pocket on the back that’s perfect for storing a phone or other small item while you do your workout.
The material is nice and soft neoprene. We also noted the adjustable front straps. Youths interested in amping their training up will be able to fit this vest well.
It distributes the weight evenly across the back, so you do not feel strained when wearing the vest. The material breathes well so even when you sweat, it won’t stink too much!
This is a vest that is great for men, women and even young teens who want to add more to their workouts. We liked the adjustable buckle strap that was placed in front of the chest that allows the fit to be just right for you.
The Neoprene material is revolutionary for this particular accessory.
It holds in the sand fillings oh so well, so you can really go hard with this vest and not worry about it poking out of the material. You won’t worry about sand spilling all over the place.
This vest comes in at a grand total of 20LBS, so it’s great for those of you that want a challenging workout but not so hard that you can’t complete it.
It’s great for intermediate athletes as the 20lbs presents a good and honest challenge.
And lastly, there is a nice little pocket for storing your belongings so in case you carry a phone or mp3 player with you while you work out, you can store it safely. Great design!
There is really no strict answer to this particular question. You should be shopping for a vest based upon your ability level instead of body type-so shop by weight.
That being said, we do encourage the use of the over the head models or the “backpack” styles for women.
The reason being is that the chest area may become irritated if you are working out with straps rubbing against this area.
Those of you that have a smaller body type will do well with a vest that can be adjusted to suit your frame-consider one of our vests that has a side or chest strap that can be taken in so it stays on you snugly while you work.
How Do I Clean These Vests?
One user reported that he wiped his vest with Clorox antibacterial wipes each week.
We cleaned our vest by removing the sandbags. Then, we filled up the tub using lukewarm water.
Alternatively, you can do this in your laundry room sink, or take a tote outside with some warm water in it.
Then, we took a clean kitchen sponge and scrubbed down the vest thoroughly.
We then rinsed it off with fresh water and hang it up to dry. The neoprene and nylon will dry fast for you.
Are Weighted Vests Good for Losing Weight?
Weighted vests not only add more resistance which increases calorie burn, but they also get you stronger and help you build more muscle.
The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn…and the leaner you get.
Have fun choosing a weighted vest that is just for you. No matter your choice, you will definitely feel the burn and see the results!
