Best Weighted vest india - Crossfit - Running 11Best Weighted vest india - Crossfit - Running 12

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.
