Hey guys. I've been looking for some weight vest for a while after reading some of the threads. With shipping costs they were getting even worse. For the xvest they wanted almost 70 for shipping cost alone. I just found a website that I ordered my vest from that has a promotional 2.95 shipping cost for ground shipping no matter the weight. Thought you guys might be interested if you wanted to by a xvest. At least you save 70 on shipping. Website is www.karatekepot.com I'll report back and let you guys know how long it takes to get it.
