THE PROBLEM WITH MOST WEIGHT VESTS
Weight Vests and Shorts have been around for many years but typically weighted vests are unbalanced, akward, uncomfortable and hot. That's because the individual weights that make up most other vests are comparatively too large and bulky and the vest itself allows the weights to flop or bounce around in an un balanced and un natural way resulting in chafing or bruising of the body with exercise as low impact as fast walking.
First, the designers determined that by more evenly distributing a greater number of smaller weights it would eliminate bounce, produce a lower profile thats more evenly distributed for better overal balance and comfort. Secondly, they used the unique combination of Neoprene and Lycra materials to take advantage of their inherent elasticity, shock absorbing ability and padding qualities which is infinitely more comfortable, stable and supportive. Its sleeker form fitting design can also be more easily worn under clothing
Using many smaller slim weights that are evenly distributed (see the photo) and fit snugly to the body with a unique padded yet elastic material that eliminates excessive bounce and weight shift which is crucial for athetes performing speed, jumping or agility oriented drills and other high intensity workouts where balance is key. But balance and comfort are important not only for intense sports training but are key elements in making an any exercise program comfortable and enjoyable to continue with as opposed to experiencing chafing and bruising with traditional designed vests and shorts.
The much smaller individual weights that are used are a better design but are more costly to produce than most others vests with much larger weights in both cost of raw materials and in cost of production. They are made by pouring molton lead into a mold and then smoothing the edges and any imperfections once they have cooled off. Then they are powder coated for durability. These weights are more expensve but the lead material is dense and thereby heavier for its size than other materials. They also maintain their smooth finish over time and don't corrode which ensure they always slide in and out of their smoothly and easily. When you consider the benefits of these better weights as well as the unique application of Neoprene and Lycra material that provides elasticity for a firm fit as well as padding and shock absorbing we're sure you'll enjoy using it and will appreciate the more comfortable exercise experience they provide now and for years to come!
