I’m in the US Navy and I need to optimize my workouts with the limited amount of time I’m given. I do everything from ruck to workout in the gym with it on. It’s comfortable and easy to load, I advise anyone looking to get into spec war or even just looking to stay in shape or get into better shape that this is the perfect tool for you.
I have used my vest and plates consistently since I received them. The vest has really helped me push my workouts to the next level. I'm really happy I ended up going with Tribe Wod. I reviewed so many different vests and ended up going with yours and I'm so glad I did.
The product itself is great. They should have a tutorial on how to install the plates into the vest on their site. Maybe I just missed it but it would be helpful. Also, I know they are a small growing company but better response times on emails would help tremendously. I sent four emails and did their contact us on the website before anyone responded. It should not take a week to get a response. Something as simple as “the plates are on back order from our supplier. It will take a few weeks to get it” would be sufficient. That being said, it’s a great product. I would recommend it.
If you may have concerns that the heaviest option 13.75 isn't heavy enough just try them first. Speaking from somewhat average heavy rucking experience
