    Maybe try to catch a US Palm Defender on sale at PA again. I think he had them for 25 or 30 bucks off the normal $200 just a week or two ago - might have been more.

    Fully set up ATS chest rig, or a TT MAV would run about that much.

    Psst.... the Defender has Level IIIA soft armor in the front. You can get an extra pre-cut panel for the back for about $100.

    I can second the TT MAV rig, as that's what I use.

    OP, you might also consider a good belt setup. I really like my HSGI belt.

    I know most like hardware solutions, but just to throw something out there buy a series of nice training DVDs and don't just watch them as entertainment like many people do but really go to the range and run the drills.

    If it was a higher dollar amount I would suggest a trip to a solid shooting school. Guns and hardware are nice to own but it is technique on how to use the tools that count.

    Ar500 Front/Rear/Side armor plates with the front plate having shooter cutouts. Then have her buy you a nice plate carrier for a early bday present.

    There are one-day basic carbine classes out there in the $150-200 price range.

    Then I'd suggest starting out with a solid belt rig. Either something like an Ares Ranger with a couple pouches, or an HSGI SGPB with pouches. Either setup can be had (with 2-4 pouches, depending on choices) for under $150. If you're going to a carbine-only class, then you won't need a holster (which would likely put you over budget).

    If you already have a solid belt, then I would just suggest some quality pouches, and maybe a TT MAV rig.

    What didn't you like about the HSGI belt?

    Ah, makes sense. Having the right size belt helps a lot.

    Leg rigs/sub-loads suck.

    I vote for gear that you need for classes.

    My vote is a Battlecomp 1.0. Worth every penny in my opinion, reduces muzzle rise almost completely and you stay on target for very very fast follow up shots.
