Top 5 Weighted Vests for Women

Designing a weighted fitness vest for women can be tricky. Learn why these five picks made the list.

Guys and gals are decidedly different — especially when it comes to upper-body physiology. So when buying gear like a weighted vest to increase your workout intensity, proper fit can make or break your exercise experience. Here are our top five picks for weighted vests designed especially for women.

1. Bionic Body Adjustable Weighted Vest

This product, designed by fitness expert and celebrity trainer Kim Lyons, is form-fitting — contoured for a woman’s body — secure and comfortable. It’s made with a pliable metal compound that’s comfortable and hassle-free, and it comes with easily removable weights to customize your workout intensity. Available in one size.

2. Hyperwear Hyper Vest Fit

The Hyper Vest Fit is ideal for light training such as walking, jogging and functional fitness. The vest has thin half-pound weights so you can gradually increase resistance and intensity over time, and the stretch fabric holds weights in place without bounce. The side lacing offers even more ways to customize your fit while also providing ventilation. Available in three sizes.
