    Hi,

    This is a great article. I have recently started trail running and as I get stronger, I will definitely be looking in to using a weighted vest for short training runs.

    How well do they wick away moisture? The weather can get pretty warm here and they look like they would be quite hot to wear.

    Thanks

    Tom

      Hi, Tom and thank you.

      This is an important thing you ask about. And this point is one of the things I researched when I was choosing which of the best the weighted vest I would recommend for running. 

      So with that in mind, I can recommend Hyperwear Hyper Vest Pro. The reason is the Moisture wicking and odor resistant fabric. Plus it is very comfortable.
      If you have more question, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    In all the years I have been running to stay in shape, I have never worn a vest- mainly because I did not know what options there were or which would best fit me. I have always been iffy on the fact that when I run, I don’t want the vest to grind on my armpit or press on my chest (creating a worse breathing pattern). Have you run into either of these issues with the products you have listed?

      Hi, CravenATAT and thank you.

      No, I haven´t.  But have in mind that all this 3 product is made for runners in mind. So one of the things which have been focused on, for sure, that it is comfortable to wear. 

      Even so,  I would think that Hyperwear Hyper Vest Pro would be interesting for you. Because it does not restrict freedom of movement and is very easy to put on and take off. Knowing the second part made you more comfortable.

      If you have any question or I can help you, don´t hesitate to be in contact!

      Hi, Mitchell Balker and thank you.

      The weighted vest is a very interesting thing in basic. I think the popularity of using it will only grow even so it will, probably, never be a big percentage of runner, joggers or people which like to walk. I see for example it is coming more in with CrossFit lovers, even so, I´m not sure about the percentage of it.

      The point behind using the weighted vest is to have a much effort as possible for walking, running short or big distance. And that is why it is wise to start thinking like you were in the gym, and you can use it in the gym too by the way. If you were starting in the gym you would not put as many pounds/kilos on the bar you could because you could easily damage if you do it without knowing and training the technique first. And for the weighted vest, the same rule is the basic about how you start using it. You start slowly but steady. Add the pounds/kilos slowly but steady as your body get used to it. It is very important to know the technique and know your body first, then adding the pounds/kilos as you get better.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
