Probably vest 2.Have you considered going to a military surplus store?I don't know how much they are there,but I know you can also get MOLLE accessories,like pouches and pockets,there.

I have this one and it has held up good so far. Price varies based on color but all are under $30. It comes with the belt and has a pouch for a water badder on the back.

it would help to know what you want your vest to do. If you're playing mag-fed recball, any of those is probably fine. anything with pods, you're going to want to put them on the back, i just got my molle stuff a few weeks ago and cant find any way to make pods up front work. also, be advised that a vest without a back isnt going to hold any hydration for you, which for paintball is generally one of the main reasons to use a vest.

Sorry about that, I want one with a lot of space for stuff, so the 3 up there dont have a lot. I would use it for scenarios, electro. so no tank or mags.

Ok, not hating milsim, why do you want a vest?

I'm totally serious, why do you want it?
Because I'll give my opinion, but I want to know what your LOOKING for in the buying of a vest.

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

If you have to have a vest, any of the first three will be cheap enough to get you going, but expect to have them start to tear and generally wear out. And sooner, rather than later. The last one is nice in that it is made for paintball, has a bit of padding to help, but isn't as modular as the other three.

As Blade of grass asked, do you need a vest, or do you just want one? I play woodsball, and some big and scenario games, and I operate just fine, probably better so, with just a pod pack.
