    I'm looking to complete an ACU loadout. As of now I have a cheap ACU crossdraw vest, but I'm looking to upgrade to something better ..any suggestions in the 20-60 dollar range?

    There's not a whole lot you can do with $60 You might be able to afford condor on that budget. Now you're doing an ACU/UCP loadout, I wouldn't suggest an ACU vest, in my opinion pattern on patter is fugly. You can buy cheap chinese gear for that price but they don't last long.

    here is a better than other but not the best vest.

    There will be nothing in the 20-60 dollar range gear wise. I would save up my money and buy something from www.shootercbgear.com. They carry Flyye gear. I would recommend any Pantac or Flyye gear. No Condor that is only if you want your gear to fail you.

    The problem with condor is not that it fails on you, I have seen people running condor gear in real steel drills for field testing and only taken minimal wear issues. The biggest problem with condor is that the Molle webbing is sewn on via machine and because of this they have a dreadful molle spacing issue. If they fixed that problem, they would be a half decent "on a budget" brand. They've fixed a lot of their other problems like vinyl backing, single stitching, etc.

    Yea but you have to agree that Condor is a pretty bad company for gear.

    Get a surplus FLC, real steal gear will do you well.

    Not an FLC, it won't. The dang thing was designed to be worn OVER a plate carrier, not worn standalone. So unless he's willing to buy an IOTV or something to wear under it, there are other options to go with.

    Get one of these two in Coyote or Ranger Green:

    It's just about the best you're going to get for the budget you have. Eagle and Tactical Tailor both make great stuff, these chest rigs have a very simple design but offers a fair amount of space for what they are. Both Ranger Green and Coyote Brown look very good with ACU. It wouldn't be a horrible idea to throw some shoulder pads on there either:

    If you want to pay a little extra money and go superlight, these things are pretty sweet:
