What do you usually carry around in a standard game that you play? Do you carry around anything else than pods and an air tank?

What kind of pack are you using?

You may find that packs are more comfortable, especially in warmer weather.

If you're set on a vest over a pack, look into Rap4 or Flurry vests. The Rap4 will be among the cheapest, and this really is the one thing they do right. Flurry isn't bad on cost, but it's not mesh so it could get warm faster. Neither are as expensive as Special Ops vests (which you said < $100 was a requirement, and nearly every SO vest is above that limit).

If you want a vest that you can customize i would say get a blackcell operatives vest. all the pouches and pod holders are attached via molle and interlock system. This allows you to add and remove stuff depending on what you need to do. Its a little more expensive then a vest with perminant pockets and pod holders but if you find you need to add a diffrent type of pocket you can just remove one and put the new one on.

Great in theory, bad when you consider it's even more expensive. The original poster wanted vests that run $100 or less. Any company's "modular" line (Special Ops, BT, and others) exceeds that cost.

If you're set on getting a Spec Ops vest, try a Scout vest. $80 and it can carry pretty much anything.
Check it out here:

If not, I'd go with the recommendations that Thalion made.

You could always go with your friendly neighborhood military surplus store and buy some vests there.
Yeah I use an M-16 grip, wanna fight about it?

Get the Tactical Ten Vest from RAP4 for $100. You can change the pockets around, add what you want and don't want and it comes with attachments!

Edit: Oh, you said you don't want to spend 100, i thought your limit was $100. Here are some paintball vests that are $40. I would just stick with a pod pack.

Actually, he just said he doesn't want to WASTE 100 dollars.

I say go for the recon 6.
It looks awesome, has enough storage, and isn't the most expensive!

dude hold on to your best pod packs though. i keep a nice invert pod belt and my vest so i can switch out for when i get too hot and what position im playing.

but id go for the special ops dagger type vest. pretty much good for all positions and conditions. under 100 dollars and not a waste... i myself am saving up for that cause i dont really adore the vest i have now.

Broadsword 6 vests are very nice. They hold a lot of paint and a pretty comfy. Flurry vests are nice too but I like my broadsword more. I also have the broadsword for sale, pm me if interested.
