if I may, break away from the mold of this conversation. lol.
I have 4 vests, all acm shit, all different, (2 rrv, a paintball style, and one similar to the one you posted)
I have no complaints so far,(had to restich a strap on a rrv, but for $15 from airsoft-club.com its hardly something to through your arms up about lol)
When it comes to money and airsoft sometimes I have to sacrifice one for the other. (ie gun stuff vs gear stuff). You dont see alot of that talk on these forums. lol
Most of these guys eat sleep and breath airsoft though, and I play from april - october maybe twice a month, so how we treat our gear might be totally different.
