I would imagine someone would need to first make an easy to produce material that is exceptionally dense, second you would probably have to use tough cloth made of hemp or whatever material they make jeans out of. You would probably have to layer the dense material in a meshed sandwich of something tough and elastic in the center of the material the clothing is made out of. My guess is maybe a weighted jumpsuit would be possible or something asthetically similar to sweatpants and a hoody. To help with mobility instead of weighted plates padding the clothing maybe the dense material could be in the form of very small near frictionless beads. I would think it would still be uncomfortable even if weighted clothing would allow for more mobility or versatility than a vest.



I was talking more around 10-20lbs at most.

So you are telling me that even with our "Sophisticated Technology" we cannot produce a semi comfortable weighted piece of clothing 3-10lbs.

That's pretty bad.

This guy has some weighted clothing. He also has a giant mullet to create neck muscles due to centrifugal force of his hair.

I want to say that the benefits of weighted clothing are controversial. Some studies have shown they do nothing. AND they increase probabilities of injury.


Also, in defense of the original poster, a LOT of people wear weighted shit. And don't hate on DBZ, you mother fuckers.
