This is a good read, and it belongs here. Yes, I know this is geared towards real world guys dealing with real world situations. It still applies to you though! Give it a read over and discuss it here. http://www.itstactical.com/gear/buying-cheap-gear-killing-yourself-and-the-american-based-tactical-product-revolution/ Before you go all keyboard warrior in the comments, let me state that I know some people can't afford LBT, Crye, Patagucci, and so on. That being said, there is ALWAYS a better option than Condor, TMC, Emerson, and Lancer Tactical. ALWAYS.
