I'm looking for a decent Tactical Vest. I'm not into paying hundreds of dollars for it since I'm in college. I would however like something that would hold up after a weekend in the woods. Mostly I want it for carrying mags more conveniently. I have an old chest harness from the Vietnam era with the alice clips but it gets a little uncomfy for all day use.

Thanks in advance.

I'm looking to carry AR magazines. Mostly 30's but a few 20's possibly. I would like to have the ability to alter the position of the pouches. I'll have to think about it a little more to get specific.

Pouches sold seperatly, but they are very comfortable. And modular.

I picked up a surplus Molle 1 vest from Armygear.net and outfitted it with some pouches as I saw fit.

Works enough for sedentary college student me...

All things told I have about... $150-ish into my "cheapo" vest.

A Tactical Tailor 2-piece MAV setup (complete with pouches) and a X-harness is a great starter rig. You have the ability of comfortably carrying 12 30rd AR mags, two 1QT/1L water bottles or other supplies, small first aid (pressure dressings) and a lensatic compass. It will run you less than or about $200.

Check the EE, there are some great deals in there.

+1 on the ee, you can possibly find something good there.

i don't like the cheap imports ($40 + range), IMO buy cheap, buy twice.

tactical tailor has some good ones for $130ish. eagle has a few that are real good as well.

I'm on a budget too and am thinking of getting one of these vests. Also available in black, 3-color desert, and woodland camo.
