weight vest

i've been doing some online searches for a weighted vest, one that goes up to or over 20 lbs. What brand is most highly suggested/most durable and comfortable while at the same time cost effective?

Re: weight vest

There's a two page thread posted only a few days ago with plenty of advice regarding weight vests, and even a few people offering to sell/go wholesale. Search around for it

Re: weight vest

I have this one - (WFS link to info about weight vests)

http://weightvest.com/Pages/50lbNarrow.html

I really like it. The "narrow" cut allows maximum range of motion through the shoulders. Doing pull-ups, push-ups, etc.. is no problem.

The construction, and materials, used feels very solid and high quality.

I have not used any other vests, so I can not compare.

I am very happy with my purchase.

Re: weight vest

I have this one ( http://www.hdosport.com/TKO-40-lb-Weighted-Vest-27.htm (wfs)) and love it. It's durable, comfortable, and adjustable in 1lb. increments. Definitely one of my favorite pieces of equipment.
