My own personal experience;

If you can get good quality used stuff at a cheap price, go for it. But do not buy "cheap" or ill fitting equipment. Too big or small means something is left unprotected or protection is out of place.

A purchases of low quality (or poor fitting) pants can be a bad mistake. I made that mistake once and my tailbone let me know about it after a routine dumping in front of the net.

A good quality skate boot is also a good investment. Comfort and foot protection. Regardless of what level of play

Most of the other equipment depending on level of play should not be an issue if it fits well.
