Hey guys, im kind of new here but i have a queation.

From what you have seen/used/owned, what is the best vest and accessories for the price? I was thinking of maybe Valken becasue the Dye Tactical line is to expensive for me. But any tips will help.

Thanks

I love my Flurry Industries Vest! A little warm..... ok HOT in the summer but nice and comfy in the winter!

They hold/fit my 180rd Pinokio Pods with ease.
Pod Link

I dont use the front pods and have a replacement 2 pods instead of the tank holder on the back ( so 6ea 180rd pods) I like to crawl on my stomach and 4 pods up front are not comfortable to be laying on.
The map pouch is awesome on the front. I can't say enough good things about this system.

I run with the Tippmann Assault Vest. Lightweight, tons of storage space, velcro waistband to secure the vest to your body to eliminate shifting. 6+2 pod configuration with a horizontal tank pouch. Internal pouch for water bladder. I love this vest and it has served me pretty well. Runs for $99

The Flurry vest above is the Dreadnought vest. The 4 on the front are not removable. However, their Emissary vest starts with 4pods and a tank holder on the back.



I actually moved the pods down all the way on the back velcro, added another 2 pod pack, and turned my tank holder sideways above the pods.

The front 2 pockets are small enough for 75 round pods. I use them to hold grenades or rags or my barrel sock. Normally "squishy" stuff since I like to go prone.

^^^^^^ = Yep this guy is correct!


I wish I would have bought that one. But Im going to call and maybe I can buy that front to fit mine. I love that it is all VELCRO Module'd.

I don't recommend anything by rap4 except their vests. They meet USMC standards.
Rap4's tac vests are simple, easily customizable, and very easy to strip and clean. They have pouches for everything, and an inside pocket on the back for a camelback. They also have zipper pockets inside for keys, wallets or anything else valuable.

My brother has a RAP4 10-pod vest and loves it. 10 pods is a little much for me; not only is it FREAKING HEAVY but I run out of air right near the end of my 6 pods. I will say, one thing about the RAP4 vest I wish the Flurry had was the front zipper. You don't have to lift the whole vest over your head to put it on; you put it on like a coat and zip it up. A 10-20pound coat, but a coat none-the-less.

It is worth mentioning the Flurry vests have the pocket for the hydration pouch, too.

Valken carries only two vests, ECHO and TANGO. Click the link in my sig to get there.

If you are strapped for cash the ECHO is a great vest for the price. Fits and feels like a xball harness but with the added molle on the shoulder straps for some custimization. $50!!!

the TANGO is a "build it yourself" style vest. Very well put together, room for a camelback, tons of molle pouches to make the right fit for your play style. A bit on the expensive side, however. The vest alone is $70, and after you buy all your pouches you are likely looking at closer to $130.

One of the first vests I owned when starting out in Scenario paintball was the UTG tactical vest. Comes with everything you need to get right into the game, available in six different patterns, and for $40-$50 online you CANNOT beat the price anywhere. The pouches on the front are unfortunately not removeable, but the back is entirely MOLLE straps.

Hope this helps!

Check out Condor. I like everything I've gotten from them and the price seemed pretty good to me.
