Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

What to fill weighted vest with?

I bought a weighted vest, but it doesn't include any weights. It can hold up to 50kg (according to the shop) I filled it with sand, but its not heavy enough. The vest only weighs maybe 6-7kg when filled with sand. Any tips on an affordable alternative to sand, with which I can fill my vest?
