Constructed specifically to compliment natural range of motion, increase total weight to the body in any workout, whilst still feeling lightweight, and breathable. Reduced bulkiness is found in the low profile 2.5kg weight plates - add up to 6 plates in one vest, 3 in the front, and three in the back. padded shoulder pads increase contact area, comfort, and durability. Elastic adjustability to your preferred tension for stability, fit and comfort. The emergency quick release system provides ultra fast exit from the vest in time critical situations - beware, this takes a while to put back together, once the emergency quick release is deployed.

I upgraded to this bad boy from a cheaper version (Not an IA product). The difference is night and day. This vest is comfortable to wear and manages to feel very "solid" without being too constrictive.
I wore this for Murph on Gumboot Friday and although I hated it, it was comfortable and stayed solid the whole time.
I use the vest regularly to spice up anything bodyweight.
Dont hesitate, grab one today.
The vest is very well put together. Fits perfectly!

So the benefit that I had with going with Industrial Athletic is they've been involved with a lot of fit-outs from start to finish, the professionalism and the experience. There's no other choice, they're at the top of their game.CrossFit Metal Zone
★★★★★Simon Thomas - Head Strength and Conditioning Coach
To get the quality of gear that can handle a high amount of usage, especially when you've got a particular budget to start with, you need to know it's going to last you and it's going to be fit for the use you'll put it through. Make sure you've got something that you are proud of, you're happy with, and is going to last is really critical.Canterbury Rugby

If you want gear thats going to do the job and do it well and it's going to last, than I'd definitely say 'spend the money on it', and I'd definitely recommend Industrial Athletic because it ticks all the boxes when it comes to gym equipmentSt Thomas of Canterbury College
★★★★★Jan Reyneke - Head Strength & Conditioning Coach
I didn't really look around too much to be honest. I have a good idea of what's out there and have dealt with a few different vendors. So it was a bit of a no-brainer for me - it was a trust thing. I knew the products were good quality, and I knew the service I was going to get from Rob was good and I could trust him.Saint Kentigern College
