Best weighted vest India – Top 5

Weighted Vest in India are rare items, you can find them in some crossfit gyms but for personal use at the home gym very few people use them.

Best weighted vest for calisthenics could be a great addition to your existing gym set up.

Weighted vest can bring extreme challenges to your body weight workouts.

If you love doing body weight exercises like push up, pull ups, squats then a weighted vest will help increase your strength dramatically.

You can also add weighted vest while you are running on a treadmill, doing agility drills or doing feet work.

If you weight around 60kgs and you add 15kgs of weight vest on you, then you are moving extra 15kgs which will put extra pressure on your muscles and nerves. Weighted vest will make you build muscles also.

Reviews of Best Weighted Vest India

Kobo CTA-20 Nylon Weighted Vest india, Adult 15Kg (Black)

Best Weighted vest india - Crossfit - Running 1Best Weighted vest india - Crossfit - Running 2

Final Verdict: One of the best multi purpose weighted vest in India that you can have and use for jogging, sprints,  cardio and compound exercises like squats, pull ups etc. This is one of the best weight vest for running in India on a treadmill or outside.

KOBO CTA-20 is my first recommended weighted vest in India.

This weighted vest has soft padding so it makes it comfortable wearing for a long time. But do not wear unnecessarily and put pressure on your neck and spine.

Fully adjustable with velcro straps, fits most adults you can tighten or loosen it as you require.

Mostly made with nylon type material and have evenly distributed weight pouches.

It has 38 sand filled pockets instead of steel weights thus the 15kg limits might not be 100% accurate. But 15kg weight is included so you can start working out as soon as you get it.

This weighted vest in India can also be worn under a tshirt and one size fits all.

People have been using this for cardio and some are also using this for mountain climbing training. Imaging wearing this with 15kgs of weight then backapck and climbing stairs as exercises. Sounds awesome.

Some also consider this weighted vest in India as best fit or functional training. 

Cons: Sand filled pockets. I do not trust workout equipments with sand, they do not feel sturdy to me. I always feel that the sand will leak out.

Sahni Sports Pro Adjustable Weighted Vest India

Pros: Major pros is iron bars and build quality. Some do complain on size fit but overall a great product for working out. Get this over the KOBO because of the Iron/Steel weight bars.

A great addition to your home gym but note the total home gym setup cost in India.

Sahini themselves claim that their vest is the best vest in the market for men and women.

Also this weighted vest in India is handcrafted and the waise can be adjusted for better fit. And only one size is available that fits all.

This is also one of the weighted vest 20kg india and also available at weight vest 10kg.

People do recommend this vest over others due to the heavy materials used and they feel this is a more sturdy one. 

Apart from the heavy materials used they give iron bars as adjustable weight. Iron bars are always better than sand pouches. Weights will be accurate and easy to adjust. This weighted vest is available in 10kg and 20kg version.

Whether you can buy additional iron weights for this vest or not I am not sure.

For 20kg versions you get 40 iron bars! That means you can go a lot of tiny adjustments in weight. That is really impressive!

Cons: I do not see any Cons in this except the price could go higher as iron weight bars are being used.

IRIS Fitness Adjustable Weighted Vest India for Men Women Exercise, Fat Loss, Strength

Final Verdict: If you get a good deal and want to use it for running then get this, otherwise skip. This could be one of the cheap weighted vest you can buy.

IRIS weighted vest in India is mere entry level vest with only 5kg weight support. It is great for running and cardio workouts only.  If you are looking for weight jacket 5kg – then it is the best option for you.

One plus point could be the color or pattern options.

Since it is an entry level weighted vest India, it comes with sand bags.

Apart from 5kg version it is also available in 10kg version.

CFF Adjustable Weighted Vest 30 Kg/66 Lbs – Great for Cross Training & Fireman Training

Final Verdict: if you are looking to buy weight vest 30kg in India then this is the choice you have. But depending on the cost you can skip this get weighted vest 20kg India as well.

Could be a great addition to your Power Squat rack India.

I used to believe weighted vest 20kg india is a limit, then I saw this weighted vest of 30kg in India.

A great feature regarding higher weight as you will get stronger you will require more resistance to to build stamina and muscle

It is a really well built vest with weight pockets both front and back for optimum balance.

You can increase or decrease the weights by 2.2 pounds or 1kg. Lots of tiny adjustments can be done here. And with velcro straps you can adjust how it fits your body.

Pros: Sturdy product, loved by internationals buyers as well. Metal/Iron weights for accurate weight and adjustments.

Forfar Adjustable Dural Weight Training Jacket 20kg

Buy this weight vest India if you have adjustable weights that fits this vest.

High density oxford fabric used, made to last, hopefully will survive outdoor runs too.

Have 16 slots to insert iron/steel plates.

Major Cons: no weights provided, this is the only jacket and nothing else.

If you have weights lying around only then it is usable.

Weighted vest benefits

Depending on your usages weighted vest benefits walking, wearing a weighted vest all day or weight vest benefits for running will be different. I personally do not support wearing a weighted vest all day. Too much pressure on neck I would say.

Here are the top Weighted vest benefits

  1. Burn calories
  2. Improve stamina
  3. Build muscle
  4. Get strong
  5. Better balance
  6. Increase bone strength
  7. Strong cardio

Workouts to do with Weighted Vest India

  1. Weighted Vest Burpees
  2. Weighted Vest Squats
  3. Weighted Vest Split Squats
  4. Weighted vest walking, running, sprints
  5. Weighted vest pull ups
  6. Planks
  7. Dips

And with your imagination you can do a lot more, for example – I can do a turkish get up with dumbbells at my hand and wearing a weighted vest.

If you are also looking into the weighted vest decathlon, you can go for them. The best way to buy a weighted vest decathlon would be to visit their store and trying it up! They have plenty of stores and you can get the experience of wearing their weighted vest India.

To me Decathlon vests are a little bulky than KOBO weighted vest or SAHINI sports weighted vest. But from my past experience in my decathlon weighted vest review, I will say their products are durable and standard.

Yo Friends, this is Samarjit! A skinny guy who is building his tiny home gym.

I have successfully gained 10 kgs in 10 months going to commercial gyms. And I have been working out on and off for about 10+ years now.

I have gone swimming, done martial arts, Olympic lifts and body-building-type workouts!

I canceled the gym subscription as I was more into making my home gym for workouts. And getting ready, then getting my cycle and ride to the commercial gym seemed a drag after 10 hours in the office.

Thus, I needed a home that I could access at any moment!
And I started building my home gym!

I had to research a lot to build my home gym and decided to share effective, budget-friendly home gym machines, and nutrition to buy as per your goals here in
