Review 1 for Gold's Gym 8lb Weighted Fitness Vest

Not what I expected

First, I should say that I wanted to buy the 12 pound weight vest, but after going to 2 walmarts they only had this one, so I thought I should give it a try. I intended to use this weight as an everyday wearing/walking tool. I'm a huge fan of ankle weights, and was hoping to add just a little more resistance. After putting this product on, my shoulders immediatly began to fight the weight and were constantly lifting up (which was unwanted#. I wore it around the house for about 3 hours, and couldn't get used to it. If you're looking to build your neck or extreme upper shoulder muscles then this product would be okay #hence my 2 stars)... However if you're just looking to add some overall weight, then I wouldn't recommend it.
My MAIN complaint about this is the odd design. It's built fairly sturdy, and it has a couple reflecters, but it's constantly weighing you forward. And there's no possible way to wear it under say, a jacket, and not look odd. I'll be returning it.

I like it except it hurts my shoulders a little. I guess I would get use to it after a while. Great for doing squats or lunges. Looks durable.
