    I don't need great quality since I don't play much and when I do I'm not super hard on my gear. Anyway I am looking for a SUPER lightweight chest rig. I am 13 and 5' 2" 90 lbs. I want coyote brown. I have an JG T3K3 G3A3 as my gun so g3 mags... I might get an M4 in the future. My budget is: $115.00 which I know is low but it's what I feel comfortable with and I am going to try to get it with Christmas money. If you know of something that is like $130 I guess I could live with it.

    Flyye makes a 7.62 type rig for about 112 I think. If you want a bit cheaper you can try TMC for about 70.

    I googled it and found it. It's nice and I like it but I think its a bit bulky (yes I know I am over reacting) anyway but I am definetly keeping it in mind.

    $90 bucks for a pig UCR on SDK tactical, Its lightweight and can fit g3, and later on m4 mags.

    Ok how about a condor h-harness with a battle belt. You could buy 3 m14 mag pouches use those with your g3 magazines. thats like $60 and it adjust for smaller people like myself. The only thing is they might not sell coyote brown for that setup. If they did you woul have more money for more accessories.

    Seriously, just stop. In case you haven't noticed much around here, but Condor is not respected at all, really. Their products use bad materials and are badly made.

    As was already suggested, grab something from Flyye or Pantac.

    It's easiest to find Flyye at http://www.shootercbgear.com/ and Pantac at http://www.airsoftsmith.com/ if you want to get anything worth money.

    Plate carriers can be very very light weight. The Shellback Banshee is of the newer generation of small light carriers, though not quite as tight as an APC or 6094 (that's part of why it's cheaper). That said, it'll never fit a 90 pound kit. A chest rig will be the way to go, but that's because of his size more than anything. You can tighten down the straps a lot more, where as even a PC without a cummerbund, the front and real panels would probably wrap around him with room to spare.

    Grin's suggestion is solid. I also recently put together a list of affordable chest rigs for somebody else. List:

    Yes, I believe you're right, but when I saw how much he wanted to spend, I couldn't help but post that.

    Okay I am LOVIN' the Eagle Chest Rig. I will do that or a H-Harness and belt. I need a decent belt to hook my drop leg holster too.

    EDIT: This is what I'm getting or the chest rig.

    Can you link me to an H harness? The cheaper the better without having a piece of junk of course.
