I bought the 60lb model on sale for $85 and have used it several times over the last week. For <$100, it is a very solid product. Arrived as expected, no missing parts or different from the description in any way. The velcro straps and vest material is thick and solid and I have no concern about wear-and-tear on the weight pouches. The weights have rounded edges and are easy to put in and take out. As advertised, the shoulder material is unpadded, however, it is thick and seems durable. It is not particularly comfortable, but you're hanging 60lbs of weight on yourself, so I don't know how "comfortable" you can or should expect to be. There are no abrasion or friction points on the vest. The waist strap is not particularly tight and the vest does bounce around a bit when doing anything more than walking. If I were to improve the product, I'd put another strap around the chest area and pad the shoulders. However, again, it's <$100 and 100% gets the job done, so 5 stars.
