If you're going strictly on weight, go for the 1899s. If you'd like to have a little more protection, the 9905s seem to offer better protection in the chest and spine. The 1899s have a little more surface area coverage in the chest, but it's strictly PE foam.

My two cents.
The 1899s are nylon. I had the same issue with the string, but I switched it out for a regular flat-wound shoe lace and that seemed to do the trick.
