Amazon Basics Adjustable Weighted Vest 40 lbs - Product Review

40 Pounds

I have wanted a weighted vest for a few years now. But for one with more weight they were always out of my price range. I had a different one on my wish list that was 50lbs. And I would check every now and again to see if it was available for a better price. One of those times this showed up underneath that one as a recommended alternative. It is 1/5 less weight but was almost 50% cheaper. I bought it at this point for a couple of reasons. 

At the time of writing this review I have been working out again with Team Body Project videos and at the time of writing this review have worked out over 125 days in a row. Many of those videos are body weight exercises. This will allow me to amp those up. When it arrived, I put it on and wore it around the house for a few hours with the full 40lbs in it. It is easy to remove up to half the weight while wearing the vest. This model has roughly 1.93lb inserts and there 10 on the front and 10 on the back. I am 5 foot 9 and 240 lbs and a little rotund at the moment and it fits me with still some space. 

The second reason I got the vest is my son has scoliosis and will soon be in a body cast for up to four months at a time. I have told him if he is struggling with the cast I will put on the best and wear it to be in support of him and his struggles. 

The vest is easy to put on and easy to remove. Adding and removing weights is very simple as well. It is easy to clean and the construction is excellent. I expect this product to last for years to come. Very satisfied with the purchase.
