I bought a set of military chest webbing for about $25 off Ebay and then stuffed the pockets with small weight plates, some steel and lead rods i had lying around and also with 1kg bundles of bent nails and bolts from my grip training.

The webbing I got is a copy of the South African M83 pattern and it's got heaps of pockets, large and small that allow you to distribute the weight where you want it.

For example if i'm doing CF workouts that involve situps I can take all the weights out of the back pockets and put them around the side and front. For longer running workouts etc the back pack pocket will hold a water bladder and the shoulder strap length and belt can be adjusted to suit different sized people.
