It usually shows up in more subtle ways. MOLLE loops stitched to close so you can't thread pouches into all the slots, upside down fixtures, missing or otherwise non-functional straps and hangers. Stuff you might not even notice when you're a noobie but later on when you try to used it you'll find you've been had.
+1, sometimes the cheap stuff is fail right out of the box, with no use necessary. I don't buy anything made by Condor anymore because I've purchased a vest and a hydration backpack, on separate occasions over a year apart, and both items had easily visible differences in the diameter of the molle loops. Wide loops at the top allowed the pouches to shake and really skinny ones at the bottom that I could barely thread the straps through. Shitty, shitty quality control on those products, I was really not impressed.

I don't see why people would waste $50 on reproduction vests when you can buy real for $100 brand new... and $50 used.

First vest was a cheap clone from airsoftpark, have a FLYYE I ordered last night =D
Though I'm still happy with this vest, load baring buckle broke at my second game and I had to do a speedy repair on the field. Both buckles replaced with ones that can hold 300lbs+ each now. Yes things tend to break on cheapies but carry some duct tape and you're good to go.

A cheap vest will get you started especially in Indoor games, you most likely not gonna over load your vest since you're running very short skirmishes. Hell, if you're gonna run indoors, you're better off investing that money on face and eye protection. Run with a few mags in your pocket for now if that's what it takes but eye and face protection should be your priority.

So I ended up picking up my first vest http://www.airsoftatlanta.com/Condor...g-1-p/mcr1.htm

In O.D green figured that be the best color .. Overall I like it .. Very comfortable .. fits well for me and probably going to have all the room I will ever need . I also bought a Triple stacker magazine pouch (holds 6) (5 Midcaps 1Hicap) ended up removing the outside magazine straps because fitting them in and out on the field could be a hassle rather not drop magazines every where

And so it has two Velcro pockets one on the top and middle which is more then enough space for extra bbs, speed loader what ever

and Im pretty so its durable enough for my kind of play which will be indoor right now ..But if i were to take it outdoors I'm pretty sure it will take all the loose branches and what ever..

I again bought Condor

A Vertical Pistol Holster

http://www.badlandspaintball.com/condor-vt-holster.html

I'm very pleased with it a must check out in my opinion

Folds 3 times

Has a Velcro strap inside. to either raiser or lower your pistol
More then enough space for a flashlight/laser

And the strap is either Velcro or a button your preference you can pull the strap out which is also velcro and use what ever you'd like

Long straps to let it hang lower on your rig if you want

Got it for lower then retail

I'm impressed I dont see why you would spend any more unless you want a different style

I might just keep buying condor no complaints

and I also found out on my Rig

http://www.badlandspaintball.com/con...est-rig-1.html

you can fold the middle section down I'm not sure if you can do this with all Vests/Rigs
but again +1 for Condor
