I never wore one of these. But, am thinking of using one and just wear it through out the day to increase vertical and core strength. Has anyone done this and how where you gains from using one?

Maybe Im wrong but I dont see how that will improve your core strength at all, indeed it sounds a little dangerous to use it the whole day, you're gonna get back spasms or something, but again I've never heared about it, so Im maybe wrong.
What Im sure about is that it wont have a positive impact on your vertical, if you work out with a weighed vest or something extra you wont jump at max power at all, and that's what you have to do when you're working out to improve vertical: jump as high as you can whatever exercise you're doing, whether it's depth jumps, rim jumps, tuck jumps, etc...
I say dont do it... Stick with strength training, plyos, and a good abs and lower back routine
