The RUNFast (or RUNMax) Pro Weighted Vest was made for those fitness addicts who no longer feel that simple cardio is working for them. A vest with some extra weight added should give you that extra kick to sweat out that fat and keep you at your desired weight. The RUNFast comes with removable weights, enabling you to run with 12, 20, 40, 50, or 60 lbs on you. The weights are made of iron ore, which is among the heaviest grain type weight. The size is universal (one size fits most), and prices range from $30 to $86 (depending on the weight you choose for the vest).
- The weights are removable
- The material is breathable, made to fit
- Dual straps to keep it in a secure position
- The universal size may not fit bigger or smaller individuals
- Can put too much weight on the shoulders
However, there is a pretty obvious problem with the sizes. Although the vest is supposedly “universal size,” it won’t really fit you unless you are an M size or around that. If you are an 185 lbs man, the vest will be too small for you. The same thing goes if you are a 130 lbs woman: it will be too large. It will adjust, but not enough to make it a comfortable wear. If anything, it will restrict your movements, and you won’t be able to perform the exercises correctly – beating the entire purpose of purchasing that vest. The vest in itself is actually very nice, but it’s a real shame that they made the sizes fit just a few people.
The price is good compared to other vests. You pay according to the weight you purchase and compared to other options, we found this pretty cheap. We’ve seen many other similar vests online with the same issues, and they were even more expensive – so we believe that we’re getting fair services for what we paid. If only they could work on the size of the vest (either include different sizes or make it more adjustable), this would be a great addition to your workout. Unfortunately, right now, it is limited to people who are already fit and slender.
