You can buy inexpensive vests nowadays for under $50. There are a couple of "knock-offs" of the good fitted vest kicking around, but I have seen that the older canvas and weight bag type are stil popular.

Dumbbell held between ankles usually works well for pull ups and dips. Saw Eva doing pull ups with a 40lb DB when i was at HQ.
Best thing about this option you can "dump" the weight at any time and continue the exercise. Plus there is no cost involved if you already have the dumbbells

Anyone ever try a camelbak filled with water and weights in the pouches?
The "Mule" carries 8lbs of water and has several pouches i could put lead weights in. It looks like it fits tight to the body.

I use a nylon backpack of the type kids would take to school, and put in wall balls to make the main weight (I have 2, made using old rugby balls - they probably fit in better than spherical balls would). If wanted, I then put in smaller weights in the side pockets of the backpack to increase it up to about 90 lbs. I found this less uncomfortable than putting heavier plates in the backpack - as the wallballs fill the backpack they don't move around.
