Gearing Up

Any one have any idea on where are the best(meaning cheapest, most reliable, and quality gear for the best price) sites are for buying gear such as BDUs, Non-Ballistic Helmets, and LBVs as well as molle pouches without paying the ricidulous prices that are odffered out there?

Umm first off you can't have the cheapest and most reliable in the same sentence. If you buy cheap stuff, you get cheap stuff. So in other words: what you buy is what you get.

You get what you pay for. There are many sites offering all sorts of gear, you can check out ehobbyasia, or even the ASCMart. The large skew in prices, is because the ones costing more, are better quality, the ones costing less.. well, you get the idea.

The classifieds here are a great place if you know what you're after. Watch for someone your size changing their look and you can get a whole pre-built rig.

Pantac has a great performance to price ratio: It's VERY VERY VERY good. BUT, often it's not much more to just buy the real thing (add 25% / 30% to the price of a Pantac piece of gear, and you can often buy the real thing).

Yea, either Pantac or phantom are great. Reasonably cheap, and really solid.

The only gear you shouldn't be cheap on is eye protection.
