20 Lb Xvest

A friend was looking to get rid of theirs and I was debating buying it…just to make runs a little more challenging… I was just wondering if the 20 pounder was a good investment(they only want 50$, as their moving overseas and simply don’t want to take it)or is it a better idea to one of the bigger ones??

Most of the recommendations I’ve seen advise not running with more than ten percent of your own body weight strapped to you. (So, at 200 lbs, the 20 lb vest is fine.)
We use the 20 pounders in our academy, and we really like them.
