Sometimes you want extra resistance for your workout – and you are not looking for storage (like a backpack or rucksack). The GORUCK Training Weight Vest might be just what you need. It let’s you use your ruck plates and ruck weights for extra resistance, with less bulk (and expense).

A weight vest is a great tool that adds resistance and weight to workouts to increase the challenge. Using it increases the stress placed on your body to promote muscle growth. It also helps increase cardiovascular capacity, lose weight, improve bone density, build strength and endurance, improve core strength and posture, and many more.

GORUCK Training Weight Vest – Overview

One of the most significant parts of a weight vest is the shoulder strap because this is part of the vest that carries the weight on your shoulders. If it has minimal or no padding, imagine how uncomfortable it would be to your shoulders and your training. Or, if the shoulder strap is made of nylon straps, it will dig into your shoulders with every movement.

To solve this problem, GORUCK took the shoulder straps from the Rucker, which are the most comfortable on the planet under load, and sized and formed them to make the world’s best Training Weight Vest. The vest is made comfortable to the skin, even when worn shirtless. It is compatible with Ruck Plates up to 2x 30 LBS and other training plates while keeping the weight stable even while running.
