    Any brand recommendations? Everything I've found so far (from Thai brands) seems to be in cotton. Or should I go with some running gear like Nike's Dri-Fit?

    Most boxing vests are synthetic; either polyester or a moisture wicking "technical performance fabric". They're very inexpensive as well as readily available.

    I've no specific recommendations as they're all pretty similar to each other.

    I'd go to a discount sports store. anything that wicks will do the job (running gear is fine) and I'd go cheap so you can rotate easily with laundry. And feel the material before you buy. Some can be quite abrasive on the skin. It's all synthetic though.

    Under Armor is an option also.
