    God, no. OE Tech is one of the brands you want to avoid. Look into Pantac or Flyye.

    Yes, Condor is bad quality. Go find some pantac on airsoftsmith or flyye on shootercbgear.

    For airsoft, there is nothing wrong with Condor/OE Tech. If you take it out to use twice per month or less for a few hours at a time, then it will last you a long time. No sense paying a lot of money for something that you aren't using on a daily basis.

    As for that vest, no, it would be too big for you even adjusted all of the way. My teammate's son is 13 and about your build. He uses a Matrix Ciras (Matrix is another Condor/OE Tech brand.) http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?products_id=29971

    We searched for a while to find him a vest that would fit. Mind you that Matrix vest has fixed pouches - so you won't be able to re-arrange them. But he joins us about once per month and it works well for his purposes.

    Matrix is an even worse suggestion to give him. Flyye and Pantac are considerably higher quality than Condor or Matrix (especially matrix) and does not truly cost that much more than the other brands. Bad stitching, misaligned MOLLE, terrible colouring, and just in generable bad QC are common in Condor and Matrix.

    Buy Once, Cry Once.

    Same price, better quality. It's also adjustable.

    Plus, this "Mesh Molle Vest" sort of thing is really Condor's version of the FLC. You can buy real FLC's on ebay or surplus stores for as expensive or cheaper than what condor has it going for.
