    Do you want Molle? A vest? A chest rig? You can get a good cross draw vest for around $40-50.

    The basics? There's no such thing as even a "decent" cheap loadout. If you're afraid to buy gear because you don't know if you'll like the hobby, then don't buy anything. Just go out and use your pockets for load bearing or borrow a friend's extra gear to start out.

    If you're willing to save up maybe $60-120 and probably never have to spend another dollar on a plate carrier or chest rig unless you want to, then we can start talking.

    I gave you an answer. You're not getting anything worth $10 for $40-50. Save up your money and don't waste it on something worthless.

    Airsoft is an expensive hobby.(minus the bb's)(Least it's not as bad as the prices for paintball) We all were noobs once, and some of us forget that.(I know compared to all these airsoft geniuses on here, I'm definitely a noob.) For your vest, there are many options. Chest rigs, crossdraw vests,plate carriers.
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=1019 5 cents under your vest budget, comes with most pouches, you can take off the holster(I replaced mine with a dump pouch.) My personal vest, built very nicely for it's price. Goes well with desert,sandy camo.
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=28_96&products_id=7090 Great for light runners, grunts. Holds your basic necessities at a price that's flexible.
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=28_96&products_id=1637 This is a good vest, but at 40, still allows you to buy some pouches. These are my recommendations for your price range for vests. For your beginning to intermediate time, they should serve you well.

    Gloves are not needed, but it is a freaking b**ch to get shot in the knuckles.
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=548_292&products_id=11105 Yes, they look very fugly, but they are gloves. They'll keep you from getting shot in the right hand and feeling extreme pain whenever you try to type or write. Trust me, as a righty, using only your left hand to do your tasks is not fun.

    Camo can be purchased at your closest surplus store at good prices, just remember to wash your clothes if they are used.
    Now, your face mask. Realize, unless your at a MILSIM field, you usually if under 18 are required to wear a full fase mask. Even if you are over, what if your goggles fall off, your face protection falls off. The fasemasks will keep your head very secure.http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=548_542_545&products_id=9881 This can be your noob loadout. This will leave you(hopefully) under 120 not counting shipping.

    Because I in no way enjoy watching people waste their money.

    I'n going to cease to post in this thread because it is quite obvious that regardless of what I say or do, you have the attitude that buying cheap is buying well. I have had far too many people this month constantly bicker against me and I have a pounding headache, which has lasted all day. Spend your earned money on whatever strikes your fancy.

    You should go to your local army surplus store depending on where you play pick the right camo for your
    1) molle vest (way better than a crossdraw).
    2) clothing most pepole where woodland, ACU,
    Or multicam.
    3)pouches to go on your vest ( don't go out and buy a black vest and put a tan pouch on it).
    4) gloves.
    5) back pack or camelback.
    Vest is going to run around 30-50 dollars pouches are difrent depending on wher you live by me boy scouts and military pepole get a discount.

    I have spent three times the amount on my vest alone. Not including the pouches.

    You come here and want to know what experienced airsofters think is good, and when they tell you, you don't listen. That does not fly with me. You got the answer and I am closing the thread now.

    Whenever you decide you want to try again with better results, feel free to start a new thread. This time, behave politely.
