    I'm new to the forum, but have played airsoft for a while. I'm trying to get back into it. I am about 4,9' and 90 lbs. So I'm fairly small. I don't care if it has pouches or not. My price range is under $100. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Suggestions: Hamburger.

    As for gear I'd look into a Pantac chest rig. You can find them at www.airsoftsmith.com for good prices.

    Alright well if your budget is strictly $100 look into a nice TMC. If you can go higher look into flyye. Flyye is considered probably the most high quality gear for Airsoft.

    No.

    Ignore Evike entirely here. US based airsoft stores typically sell terrible gear. There are a few exceptions, but they're all relatively small. The hardest thing here is going to be fitting your size. Gear, even airsoft gear, is made for adult sized bodies. You'll want to look at very small carriers, which will still be on the big size for you. The smallest thing out there is the JPC. Both Emerson and TMC make reasonable versions of it.

    Honestly I would prefer no pouches. I don't have a lot of gear to carry. Basically about 3 mid caps I'll order with my vest, ammo, a radio, a death rag, and a high cap because it came with my gun.

    Then A JPC is perfect It has 3 M4 mag and 1 admin pouches built into the PC and it is in your price range.

    I hate to be a gear hipster here but I'm afraid I'm making JPCs too mainstream...

    No, not really. It's $9 cheaper but with $30 shipping. On eb, it's $69 with free shipping.

    Ebairsoft will be cheaper and I also know of for other people locally that use JPCs.
