Suggestions for an adjustable weighted vest for bone strengthening?

I think it was a member of this forum who mentioned having a vest that could have added weights added. If so, could that person or others who have one recommend a specific brand of vest to purchase? I am off Reclast at present for my osteoporosis and am interested in add more weight bearing help. Thank you.

@fiesty76 here's and article from the American Bone Health site that talks about weighted vests.

@johnbishop, Thank you so much! There are many varieties listed at Amazon and so I appreciate, as always, your help with providing more information. As an older, under weight female, I only know I should start with something comfortable and pretty light. Will read the article with great interest. You deserve at least 3 hugs/day from each of your many grateful followers. 3 giant, gentle cybers on their way!!

@johnbishop, After reading the helpful Am. Bone Health article, John, I understand that while weighted vests might prove helpful for some, there are good reasons to talk with my doc before trying one for myself. Balance, percentage of weight to add and fit are factors that I'd not given enough thought to. Thank you.
