    I'm looking to get a new vest and I thought I'd like to get something similar to a USMC IMTV. but I'm way to cheap to buy a real one. Does anyone know of a cheap alternative? I know Evike carries one like it.

    Evike has something similar, it's called high speed airsoft vest there's more to it but I don't remember. But thanks thats exactly what I'm looking for but not that price:p and other question, would MARPAT and OD pouches look okay on a coyote vest?

    That is the vest I'm considering, but I asked about the colors because that's the pouches I have now and I'm not looking to change those. I'd like Marine Corps gear because that's what I based my load out on. But it doesn't have to be exact. Thanks for the help though:)

    Do yourself a huge favor and don't buy that vest. Everything about it is terrible. The material, the construction, the design, it's really really bad. Like, beyond bad. Those Matrix vests are some of the worst gear on the market. If you want a Marine kit, you could do the basic framework of a Marine Force Recon kit for relatively cheap with an MBSS or RRV. Links:

    RRV:

    Again, both in Coyote Brown.

    Not a problem. I own that vest and it's great. It's light weight, low profile, the bib folds down so you're left with a chest rig, and it has a lot of space for what it is.

    Yeah, and it's made poorly. Look, we go through this same explanation with everybody trying to buy their first real vest. Just give us the benefit of the doubt here. Condor makes bad gear for a number of reasons. FLYYE makes much better gear. Buy the FLYYE version.
