Best Weight Vest on Aussie Market ?

There's so many weight vests on ebay and on the market but i reckon if you get a weight vest which isn't comfortable, pinches you somewhere or has some other annoying feature about it, you probably just won't use it at all.

Any recommendations ?
 
I've got one from World fitness

30 kg Adjustable Weighted Vest

30KG, soft weights, but i feel it slops too much (its for sale if you want to get one cheap :)

I've also got the 20KG iron edge vest which is great for a lot of things, but i probably still wouldn't recommend it for running or really dynamic movements.

Thanks for the info Nightfalltech

I reckon i will do things like Burpees, chin ups, battle ropes, sled pulling/pushing, Sandbag carry and loading, farmers walk other bodyweight exercises and sprints (not distance running) with it. Will the Iron edge one be ok for this ?

Chinups will be fine, and battle ropes (although why do you want a vest for this - Interested to know as i have one of these ropes myself). I could forsee it getting in the way with sandbags, but probably ok and this will be the same with all vests.

I think your hardest to achieve criteria will be sprinting as you are really going to want something with absolutely no movement. The iron edge vest is Pretty good in this regard, but not perfect.

Aussie Strength have their 30kg on sale

30kg Adjustable Weight Vest | Aussie Strength Equipment

Good price 119

Anyone have one of these ?

I have that one

Pros
Great price
Can load it heavy
Velcro sticks nice and good

Cons
Shoulder straps get in the way a little bit when doing chinups
It falls backwards when fully loaded, cutting into your neck - have to readjust constantly and really tighten it up. I just load more weight into the front to stop this from happening.
