When first unboxing the Vest X – PACEARTH 12 lb weighted vest, it has a very familiar design to some of the more popular vests you will see online. With an added waist support belt consisting of 4 straps located around the bottom of the unit. This definitely gives the PACEARTH a distinct look. Getting into the vest is pretty easy, just make sure you open all of the Velcro straps first. I almost made the mistake of trying to slide into it vs just opening the front all the way.
Once on, the 4 stretchy lumbar support straps make it easy to get the vest fit comfortably around the waist. And the vest also has adjustable sizing on both arms. I have to say the waist wrap provides a surprising amount of support for your lower back and abs. This core support also allows for a great amount of stability while being surprisingly flexible. It’s perfect for both strict and dynamic movements like pull ups, muscle ups, toes to bar, and handstand pushups. Keeping the vest perfectly in place, even while doing workouts like handstand walks. And is incredibly stable when running.
Another thing I really like is the added pocket built into the back of the waist trimmer. This pocket is larger than you are going to find on almost any other 12 lb weight vest. And provides plenty of room for your phone, keys, and maybe a snack bar if you need it. And if you have had back problems in the past or are recovering from an injury, this vest could be a game changer for you.
The only downside to the waist trimming is that the extra core layers also create a good amount of heat when you are wearing it. But I was surprised at how fast the vest dried after use. Lastly, my one complaint about the vest is the location of the top clip. To me it feels just a bit high, riding right around my collar bone/neck. I wish it had been placed about 1 inches lower on the vest.
Overall I’m really impressed with the Vest X 2-in-1 weighted vest from PACEARTH. The combination of fit, stability, and flexibility is outstanding. At 12 lbs it’s the perfect weight for both men and women. I love the large pocket I can access while working out. And it’s quickly becoming my go to for trail running and endurance WODs.
This vest is really going to shine for almost any of your workouts. Including running, hiking, pull ups, strict handstand pushups, handstand walks, and combined with farmer’s carries. Working perfectly for both Crossfit style WODs and slower focused movements where vest stability is important. It’s also a good choice for someone looking to walk or wear around the house while doing chores etc. And if you have had a past injury that you need more core stability help, then this is a great way to get it while adding some weight to strengthen your legs.
