What equipment should I get?
 
Im looking to buy a 20lb weight vest, a 45 lb oly bar and rubber bumber set.

Where can i find the the best quality of the above equipment at the lowest prices?

I will be running with the vest FYI. I ve read alot of reviews about vests tearing at the seams so if you all could direct me in the right direction i would really appriciate it!! thanks!

Chris,

Based on you being in New Jersey, I would recommend checking out Troy Barbell for some of your equipment. They have a warehouse in Glassboro (googled it and it said that's about 2 hours from East Hanover). We are a dealer for their equipment, so if you would like me to give you a quote and some more info, PM me.

They do not have weight vests yet though. As for that, I only have an old academy vest that tore apart very quickly. It worked well being jerry-rigged for years though!

MIR Vests are pretty nice. And as far as plates you can get some nice econ ones from muscledriver via CSN stores. ([URL="http://www.csnstores.com"]www.csnstores.com[/URL] (WFS)) just search for "Pendlay" and they will come up. There's another thread I posted with a coupon where you can even get 10% off.

As far as a bar goes, I am biased to the Rogue Bar. Anything that is guaranteed for life is good in my book. The customer service is top notch from Rogue as well.

I got the pendlay econ bumpers from csnstores.com.

For a bar look into the pendlay hd bar, rogue bar, or the b&r bar.

Do they only go up to 10lbs? Or did I miss something on their website?
