    What gear will fit 105 pounds 5'4 slim type person? I'd prefer for this gear to be found on AirsoftGi, due to a promo. thanks

    Nothing on AirsoftGI is worth getting. That goes for all of the major US retailers. GI, Airsplat, Evike, ASM, they all carry an awful lot of crap.

    You'll want something like an RRV to to fit you:

    Most plate carriers are going to be too big by quite a bit. The RRV will cinch down to your size pretty easily and still give you a fair amount of room to work with.

    It's not adjustable enough. It wouldn't fit somebody his size.

    If you can find one small enough, sure. But you're still not going to get a decent belt, a set of suspenders, and pouches for $30. The simple fact is, there's no gear worth getting that's that cheap.

    I'm sorry, I currently (humiliating) run a nc-star vest and it is somewhat sturdy. I like it and it is not too bad

    Ill link it soon, I'm at breakfast

    Please don't link that. It's not good gear. You should look into something better yourself.

    I am, this is perfect for someone on a buget

    i got this at first for protection 1.5 years ago, at 1.5 years i have never had a problem besides one of the buckels snaped when it got shot (cheap fix).

    IDK, its no Milsim gear, but it beats having nothing. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...oogleMKP&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA

    3 peoplei my family have had a variation of this vest and we have had no rips (one is new, mine is the oldest). the molle is pretty close to evenly webbed on mine but, my dads is a little off.

    Thanks for the link, Knief. That molle vest looks like quality work and $60 aint too shabby.

    I agree, if he can get that vest, get it. If not NCstar is an alternative.
    Knief knows more than me, i just know what has worked for me.

    *sigh*

    Trust me OP, you don't want the NC Star vest. They're not worth the paper your money is printed on.

    I understand that. It's still not worth it.

    Picayune.
    What about a utility belt and chest rig from an army surplus? He could afford that. Not on ASGI but its better than bc star.

    That's a good idea

    Kneif, its his choice. If he can afford your vest, he should do it.

    I am following his budget, the ncstar or the surplus would fit that budget

    About 6 months ago, I bought a boneyard Well R6e M4 from airsplat for $7. I later traded it for a pantac vest, MSRP $70. just gotta know where to look fellas, buying used has great perks.

    If he can't afford the RRV Knief linked than he should just save some money until he can afford it, it's that simple.
