HumanX by Harbinger Weighted Vest Review

As some of you may remember, I have done reviews of products from Harbinger Fitness in the past. Over the years they have participated in both reviews and giveaways for GFN and I am a HUGE fan of their gloves. Well, now they are offering a cool new line of products called HumanX by Harbinger.

HumanX by Harbinger is a specialized line of products specifically designed for Functional Fitness and High-Intensity Training (HIT) programs such as CrossFit, bootcamps, and strength/conditioning regimes. With a foundation established by Harbinger’s core weightlifting products, HumanX meets the demand for a high-quality, focused line of cross-training tools designed to enhance a user’s workout by helping them reach performance goals.

Because I love their gloves, I just know you would be interested in these new additions:

 

  • Men & Women’s X3 Competition Gloves (Retail: $40.00): Perfect for pull-ups, muscle-ups, rope work and weight training
    • Machine washable and made with Harbinger SpiderGrip™ reversed top grain leather, engineered for max grip
    • Engineered 3D design with pre-curved palm and fingers for natural grip positioning won’t force hands to lie in a flat, stiff position
    • Breathable StretchBack™ moves with hand and the seamless palm of the glove minimizes bulk

  • Palm Grips (Retail: $22.00): Great for individuals with workouts that don’t require gloves but want protection when doing pull-ups or toes-to-bar
    • Simply fold flat on palms to use and fold back on wrists to clear
    • Exclusive Durahide™ leather grip protects against calluses and skin tearing while SpiderGrip™ reversed top grain leather provides maximum grip
    • Customizable to fit specific finger lengths
    • Quick release finger design – ideal for time sensitive functional training programs such as CrossFit

But what I was interested in the most was their Weighted Vest.  Its Features include:

 

    • 20LB Weight Vest – fully adjustable in 1LB increments, 1-20LBS
    • Exclusive compact Flex Weight design contours to body for secure fit and max mobility
    • Tough abrasion-resistant outer shell with dual padding cushions shoulders and chest
    • Fully adjustable extra-wide neoprene belt for custom midsection fit

I used this vest doing everything I could think of – cardio, pull-ups, step-ups, bear crawls, walking lunges, squats, squat jumps. I love the versatility of being able to change out the weight. The 1lb plates slide in easily but are secure enough not to move during your workout. I started light at 10lbs and was at the difference that little bit of weight could make during cardio. Holding dumbbells during step-ups and lunges can sometimes tire the fingers.

The vest allowed me to easily increase the weight used during these exercises without sacrificing form. And to be honest, I haven’t made it to the 20lb max yet.

This is definitely one of my new favorite fitness toys! I love, love, love this vest and want to thank Annie for remembering GFN in promoting their new line!

    So cool! I have been wanting one of those for a while but just haven’t gotten around to buying one. My favorite fitness tool lately has been my new equalizers! Fun!

    I so want a weighted vest – have for umpteen years but never got one. :) I love my Harbinger weight lifting gloves. I buy men’s S cause women never last for me – I am wearing thru my most recent ones that are at least 1. 5 years old! :)
