A few days ago I discussed how scientists have proven that weighted vests can make you run faster after just 4 weeks so today I’m going to review one of the most popular weighted vests, the MiR Weighted Vest. MiR actually makes a wide variety of weighted vests and other exercise equipment including training parachutes and weighted gloves. I’m going to focus this review on one of their most popular vests, the short 50-lb vest which is often used by bodybuilders, amateur athletes, runners, firefighters, police officers, power walkers, and others.
This MiR weighted vest can be used with the weight ranging from 3 to 60 lbs. using the included weights. It’s a very strong and durable vest made of reinforced nylon with double-padded shoulders. Customers of this product have been impressed with the durability and comfort of the vest compared to other vests on the market.
MiR went to great lengths to ensure this vest fit comfortably and could be used for a variety of workouts including running. It’s a snug, comfortable fit so the weights do not hit against your body while you’re running. Although the vest has been praised for its comfort and durability, some users of the vest have remarked the fit is not quite as good in the neck area.
Below is a link to where you can purchase a MiR Weighted Vest. Keep in mind that some of the vests come with the weights included, others come without them, hence the price differentials.
