The new GORUCK Training Weight Vest is a streamlined way to add weight resistance to just about ANY workout.
A weighted vest is a low-impact workout that increases your fitness levels and benefits your body and mind. Using a weight vest is simple, but it improves the intensity of any exercise, making it more challenging. For example, running with a weighted vest can help enhance your fitness and athletic performance, building strength, endurance, and cardio vigor.

GORUCK Training Weight Vest – Overview
There are many weighted vests in the market, but if you are not familiar with them, you might just get anything. Other brands use minimal to no padding on the shoulder straps, while others use nylon straps that stab your shoulders deeper with every movement. This makes an uncomfortable and distressing workout.
To remedy this issue, GORUCK took their shoulder straps from the Rucker, which are the most comfortable on the planet, and sized and contoured them to make the world’s best Training Weight Vest. Because of how comfortable it is, you can even wear it shirtless. It is also compatible with Ruck Plates up to 2x 30 LBS and other training plates while keeping the weight stable even while sprinting.
This vest weighs 1.65 lbs, measuring 17.5″ (top of shoulder strap to bottom of vest) x 10.5″W. It is made primarily with 500D CORDURA® with two waist belt straps. The interior material is made from 210D CORDURA®, and the back flap material that covers the Velcro straps is made from 330D CORDURA®.
