This might be a valid kit list for a 48-72 hour milsim, but not all games are that long.

 

There are a few organisers who run milsims that are day or weekend games where you dont need all this.

 

Ive bought kit from WAS for my own use before but players dont have to buy professional kit to play milsim airsoft games.

Im not saying you need Warrior Assault System kit, Its just a basic itinerary list of what you may need to get you going at a skirmish.

Just looks like an advert for your YouTube site to be honest as you don't really use the forum much

 

I'm active on threads with replies that deserve a response.

I'm honestly surprised you've managed to get through extended all-outdoor games with the kit shown and not been, at best, very uncomfortable. IMHO, no clothing system is fit for purpose without a hardshell layer and a loft insulation layer; all standard issue stuff with many militaries for good reason. The vast majority of softshells are not waterproof (never seen one that was tbh), neither are issue smocks; hell water will get through goretex under the right circumstances. My issued softy jacket and goretex jacket are by far my most valued items whenever I've gone on any exercise or detachment. I don't rate cotton t-shirts for airsoft either, any clothing item with cotton content will be poor at sweat wicking and hence slow to dry once wet, plus it'll be cold once it gets wet; synthetics wick and dry substantially better and wicking is the main thing you need in your base layer.

 

Good video overall and I liked watching it. I think there's some good advice on food, water, eye pro, boots and sleeping kit (most of the main priorities), backpacks, bringing plenty of spares, transport options and I think your choice tac gear is solid. To my mind your clothing is a bit lacking in some areas, but that's the only 'criticism' I might have really. Not saying it doesn't work for you and I'd imagine it does so that's fine, but if I were giving advice to people for a kitlist that's just where I'd differ as to my mind the kit in the video would only really suffice for summer use. Maybe that was the intention? I may have just missed something if so.

Dont see the issue. He is puting up videos that he sees as informative thats not a problem. If he was advertising as a seller or promoting on behalf of a seller then I could see your point.

Video is the medium he prefers to get his opinions across and thats fine.

Leave the poor guy alone.

 

Trashy carry on with the vids mate your doing a good job.

 

Thank you for the support :)
