Really good product and very comfortable to use during workout, I can do frontlever and backlever without any uncomfortable feel whem I wear it 😁
Overall good product quality, i received it for free as i won the giveaway so tqvm Gravgear!!!
Thumbs up for the quality of Grav weight vest. I bought mine during the pandemic and I used it almost every other day for my workout, and look at it (see attached picture), it looked as good as new. In addition, I chose this weight vest for its compactness, and it fits perfectly well with those adjustable straps as compared with any other vests I've came across in the market. I would recommend anyone to give this a go!
Too many good things in my opinion. Will start with
-perfect fitting for anyone. Hugs firmly on you body.doesn’t move around , or even slide too much Velcros around the vest will really secure the fit . If ya doing any upside down moves . Best will be firm hugged around your body
- of cause everybody wants to look go even if ya working work. I bet you heads will turn when you wear this vest to even do a simply push-up. It’s One tone Black color minimalist style is simple yet slick
- I got the 16kgs vest, it’s easy to adjust whatever weights you need to suit your workouts, just simple take out what you don’t need and all the weights will never drop out as It’s extremely secured
- what makes this vest one of the best beside just it’s looks , fit & style is it’s QUALITY. Perfectly crafted to hold up to 16kg, hold it from any part and nothing will ripped. Details like how the little D rings can secure the vest it amazing , and it’s padded strap for the shoulders , ain’t going to leave any mark on your body .
You be doing yourself a favour if you get one
Just received my 16kg Gravgear Vest and used for a few days. The build quality is superb and its fit to my body so that I can do my workout without any dangling issue. I have been comparing quite a number of weighted vest such as Decathlon and many other that can found in Shopee or Taobao. In the end, I choose Gravgear because of its build quality and its lifetime warranty. Being a body weight training enthusiast, I definitely recommend this and is indeed a worthy investment for a self training equipment especially during the Covit-19 period.
It is one of the best weighted vest out there. Weight is adjustable and fits well.
I bought a 16kg vest from Gravgear in February 2021 to up my strength training and it is the best investment I have made this year in terms of fitness equipments. This is a serious kit if you want to increase your strength in any type of training. I use it for calisthenics and the gains in strength have been crazy!
It is extremely comfortable and well padded with adjustable straps to suit all body shapes and sizes.
My only issue would be the metal components of the vest, as seen in the photos, have started to rust badly. I’ve cleaned and sealed them once but the rust came back with a vengeance attacking the strap rings as well. They now bleed through the vest to stain my clothes after every workout so either I don’t wear a T-shirt or wear dark coloured T-shirt’s. To remove each brick after each workout to dry is quite a hassle and it’s hard not to sweat wearing the vest so that’s my only problem faced with the vest.
Overall, highly recommended fitness equipment and Wayne from Gravgear is super nice and accommodating! Keep up the good work! 💪
If Leonidas had this.
He wouldn’t have lose to Xerxes.
The 16kg was slightly too big for my small body. I own both. Im 169cm & 67kg.The 12kg however was perfect for calisthenic. I have tried 3 different vest (decathlon both gen) this is by far the only one that doesn't move during running. The shoulder padding is comfy thou i wish it was slightly slimmer.
The strap at the bottom should have like a slot to hide the excess.
The only issue i have with this is that when you go running 1 way, you have to carry this back home yourself.
I noted the 16 & 12 kg weight nuggets are not interchangeable.
If you are beginner i recommend getting 12 instead of 16.
Finding the right workout accessory isn’t always an easy task. Factors such as price, comfort and fit are important. More crucially, it has to be fit for purpose, and Grave Gear’s wrist wraps comfortably fulfils all of the aforementioned. I would definitely recommend this product if you’re looking to engage in a variety of workouts e.g. calisthenics, body weight training, weights etc. Our wrists are our body’s weakest link; care for them well.
We're so glad to hear that you found Grav Wrist Wraps comfortable and fit for purpose. We take pride in creating quality products, and it's always great to hear when they work well for our customers!
I purchased my 1st Grav Weight Vest (16kg) about 1.25 years ago and have used it 4 to 6 times a week since. The build quality was awesome and I clocked quantifiable shifts in my active HR during workouts / resting HR with the added weight, as well as noticeable gains in my calves in particular due to the added ~20% weight atop my existing frame.
Fast forward through all that use and it seemed time to replace the weight carrier (the Vest). I worked with Mark at Grav over e-mail (with him responding within 2 hours on a Sunday morning) and by Wednesday of this week I had my updated / upgraded vest.
Posting some side by sides of the old verses the new (current production) model. If you buy one of these today, what ships is a Vest with substantially more robust padding and ripstop fabric than the “v.1.0”, the closure belt is definitely chunkier as well, and the hardware fittings (e.g. the “D rings”) are now black anodised versus gunmetal / steel (highlighted at pic 3). That and the added thickness in the Shoulder Straps (pic 2) is an absolute Godsend for someone with a surgical repair for A/C separation some 15 years ago!
All beautiful upgrades to what was already a best in class product.
I’m presently working on sourcing a black on black Singapore Flag morale patch to adorn the front of this upgraded Vest as with the “all black” accents on the current model the Olive / Black (pictured on the original one) one looks outdated now.
Hat tip to Mark and the Gravgear team. Maybe if I stop my nightly Asahi’s I’ll get back to looking like some of the chaps in these review pics; but until then at least the Vest helps me stay in the “Healthy” BMI range and with a resting HR around 60 / 65 at age 41…
This is literally the best and in-depth review we've received by far. We hope our product will keep empowering your fitness!
Body was de-conditioned due to Phase 2 HA. Bought the 12kg vest, dropped the weight by half and took it for a 5km walk. Love how well it conforms to the (female) body. It’s snug, with ample room for mobility. Especially useful for weighted pull ups as compared to conventional weight belts which can be quite distracting due to swinging. Currently doing progressive loading with 5km walk. Can’t wait to start jogging in it!
Thank you for your purchase and review of Gravgear. We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying the product! We designed the vest with women in mind, so it should be a great fit for you.
We appreciate all feedback. If there's anything about Gravgear that isn't working well for you or if there's something else you'd like to see from us, please let us know.
I really like this vest as it is much more compact than any other vests I've seen in the market, in terms of its dimensions. This makes wearing it more comfortable, since it won't trap as much heat and sweat, and it is easier for you to breathe. I also like the velcro straps at the bottom of the vest, as they allow for easy adjustability, a snug fit, and easy removal of the vest too. Finally, the individual 1kg weights offer flexibility for your training. Another not-so-obvious benefit is that the individual weights allow the vest to conform closer to the contour of your torso, since the vest can still bend. This is unlike a metal plate which would make the vest totally rigid at the front and back.
Thank you for your review of Gravgear! I'm so glad to hear that it's been a good fit and has helped you meet your goals.
We're always looking at ways to improve our product, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any feedback or suggestions. We want to make sure we're meeting the needs of all different body types and fitness levels--we wouldn't be here without our customers!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of our product. We're glad you've had such an excellent experience and we hope it will continue to be so!
I have a fractured right clavicle and I don't really carry backpacks around because it will feel uncomfortable. But this maxed out vest is still comfortable even after 1 hour of intense push up session. Highly recommend. Plus, you cannot find anything sexier.
We're so happy to hear that you found our product comfortable and sexy! We take pride in designing products that are both functional and fashionable!
And we really do want customers to be able to wear our product all day long with no discomfort. Glad you liked the design!
It’s actually really hard to find a good weight vest in SEA until I stumbled upon Gravgear by chance one day online. I can honestly say it is worth every cent. The make is of extremely high quality materials with lifetime warranty. Not to mention shipping cost for such a heavy material and it arrived in about 3 days. I use it for running and calisthenics and I can honestly say the challenge to do these have increased exponentially. The weights are removable so I am doing it in progression. Once you take it off to do drop weight sets you will be flying through your sets with ease, I kid you not. Definitely worth it to up your training game. My only complain is that I didn’t get it sooner. Highly recommended!
Hi Shawn, thank you for your review and feedback. Your words humbled us! So glad to hear that Gravgear is meeting your needs.
Boy oh boy, this thing ain't no joke. Probably the heaviest and the greatest weighted vest. Of course,it did challenged my workouts and made my training more exciting with different level of weights that I can control. This is definitely a must-have to all of those who are into training.
Thank you for the detailed review, Bryan.
We take pride in our weighted vest and it's great to know that we're helping people achieve their goals. Thank you again for your purchase and feedback!
Why i chose Gravgear over other Weighted Vest?
- It looks damn cool especially styling wise when compared to other weight vest that’s available on the market, it’s way ahead in the design
- the weight bar are adjustable per kilogram, u don’t have to buy them separately
- it’s like have the most “IT” thing in town & make me motivated to push even more ✌🏼
We're glad to hear that you like our product so much.
We really put a lot of thought into the design and functionality of Gravgear in order to make it as appealing and comfortable as possible--and we're happy to know that you think it's 'way ahead' from other weight vests on the market, because that's what we are working so hard for!
It’s helping me burn more calories whenever I do low intensity steady state workouts. Fits perfectly as the straps are adjustable. The shoulder straps are extremely comfortable even on a full load! Can’t wait to burn more calories!
We are so glad you're enjoying Gravgear and that it's been helpful in your fitness journey. We appreciate the feedback on our straps which are adjustable for a perfect fit - we want to make sure they're as comfortable as possible!
Easy purchase and delivery to your door within 24 hours! Love the quality of the simplicity and quality of the product. If you do even a bit of walking it is worth the investment. Big fan!
Delivery of item was really fast. Like how it is adjustable and snug fitting. I really like the look, like the material and like how it helps me reach my goals with comfort on my body.
The best weight vest in the market! Love the design that fits on me very well without compromising my mobility. A great way to boost the workout intensity (especially when I'm on a tight schedule) and witness great improvements.
Just got it a few days back and wore it for my workout for the first time yesterday and I already know, this is some high quality stuff! Shoulder pads are thick yet not cumbersome, and the weights are nicely individually houses. When exercising there's not excessive movement that hinders or distracts. Lastly, the quality of the vest is really top notch! I'm glad (my fiancee) I got this. But there's one regret, I didn't get the 16kg one instead lol.
Love how snug and tight the vest is! It is important to have the vest close to your body while running or workout to keep it comfortable as if the additional weight is part of you to prevent any abrasion or other injury.
Love this vest. Have been using it for 2 months. Doing squats, push ups, long distance walks with this doubles the rate of fat burning. Comfortable. Doesnt cause any abrasion.
Recently I ran 9km with 8kg attached, and did bunch of bodyweight exercises with 10kg weights. Love how versatile the vest is and the shoulder pad allows the weight to sit comfortably on my shoulder without causing any pain or abrasions.
When it’s tightly strapped towards the body, i can run comfortably with minimum bouncing movement from the vest. And i like the pocket design that i can easily add and remove weights from the pocket.
Highly recommend if you want to increase strength training benefits, and level up your game!
