I always enjoy a challenge and was looking for a way to mix up my training. I had previously come across raptor training vests and thought I would give it ago.
The initial quality of the vest is excellent. Stitching is very tidy and it looks like it will last the test of time with the barrage of abuse I have planned for it.
The vest can weigh a maximum of 15kg which is plenty for running hill sprints.
The weight distribution is very even so the vest doesn’t load your chest or back unevenly.
I have the original model and the plastic clip to help fasten the chest strap could be stronger, though I haven’t had any problems yet. I think this should feel a bit more secure and it feels a bit delicate to clip in and out, especially after a hard session and you just want to rip it off. Raptor Weight Vest have obviously also noticed this and I can see it has been upgraded on the new models. It’s good to see a company improving all the time.
Overall the vest is the highest quality, and adds an extra dimension to any gym session. I now include the vest in my weekly routines on a regular basis, this is for circuits, pull-ups, dips, sprints and bag work.
