My PT recommended this vest and I like it. It feels good and helps stretch those shoulders back gently. I used it for working around the house and as I build up my strength from my injury, I plan to wear it when I speed walk. 12 lbs doesn't seem like a lot, but it's plenty of weight so some may consider 101bs instead.
I ordered this to augment my husband's home exercise after hip replacement. I love it for the ease of changing band strength with the clip on handles or ankle cuffs. I even use it myself for upper or lower extremity exercise when I don't have time to make it to the gym. The bag makes it easy to store everything when not in use.
The vest is very durable and good quality. I looked all over the place for a vest within an affordable price-point, and this one fits the bill perfectly! Its not too great for running since it shifts (even on the tightest level) but if you flip it upside-down, it works pretty well! Its secure during strength training and breathes pretty sell since its the minimalist style. As a personal trainer, I wouldn't typically suggest 12lbs to start, but if you're up for the challenge, go for it! It'll definitely make a difference in your workout and though your muscles may hate you the next day, your heart rate will appreciate it! :)
I use this band regularly for shoulder exercises. It seems to be holding up to strenuous stretching. The handles and fabric are well-made and the elastic is in good condition. I would recommend it a friend.
