Velcro straps are on the back?Warning do not buy this product, the velcro straps are on the back and are very hard to adjust. I spent my whole run trying to adjust the straps, I cannot believe that they would miss something so simple as this.

difficult to put onThe weight vest hard to put on by yourself. The straps and velcro are in the back, and it's hard to reach around and tighten up the straps. Also there are no instructions in the box on how to put on the vest. Because I could tighten the straps, the vest kept moving around and coming undone. Please let me know if there is an easier way to put on the vest and secure it. Thank you.

I really wanted to like this vestI recently purchased this vest to use for a bootcamp fitness class and it just didn't work out. I'm 6', 174 lbs and this vest just would not secure tight enough to my body. During running/jumping it would slide up/down my body which is not cool. Like another review, the velcro straps should be replaced by either a single, wider strap on each side or just one large strap. It should be engineered so a skinny person (which is the likely body type to use this) can secure it snugly to their body. I love the 2.5 lb. weight increments which allows a variety of fitness levels to use it. I really, really wish I didn't have to return it b/c it's a great price but just poor usability.

Great purchase!I bought this vest about 3 weeks ago for overall fitness training in my walk/run routine and I can already tell it is working in my overall trunk strength and endurance. It's a bit heavy at first, but very easily adjusted to. I would definitely recommend this vest.

Great workout vest!This weighted vest is a great workout. I did not know that an extra 20 lbs of weight can be so heavy. I took this vest and ran a 3 mile lake the other day and was exhausted! I have this vest for over 1 year now and use it casually and the product is still in great shape. It is a must have product if you want to get tone and shred extra pounds.

Great for the priceMy husband got this when he started training for the police force. He has absolutely loved it and it was a great buy for the price. It's adjustable so it will fit different sizes and body types and the weights are removable if you need to adjust the weight.

AwesomeThis product helped me get fit. At first you think 20 pounds is too heavy nut it's not.
