A kit somewhere in between speed and milsim.

It's my milsim load bearing equipment mixed with my Austrian Summer blouse, M81 trousers, cheap kneeps, Adidas Gazelles (Supplementary Mockbas), and my personally modified scrim boonie.

The gun is a VFC Avalon I've modified to be a Colt SMG.

I have finally got myself an Osprey mk4, bloody hell this thing is heavy! The camel back pouch is only temporary (from my assault vest) so if anybody can direct me where to get a british army camel pack (MOLLE on) that would be epic! (Yes those are power rangers douvet covers, i've had them since the 90's lol)

When you say heavy, how heavy are we talking out of interest? 

 

This isn't directed at you, but it amazes me watching reviews of airsoft guns when they complain about the weight of them.  They are probably all lighter than the real firearm, and that's before you add a mag of real rounds into the equation.

Don't worry, i'm not offended.

I mean that it's heavier than what i'm used to, my assault vest is a lot lighter by comparison. This has a lot more material and with the two bottles of 3000 bbs, 5 magazines (fully loaded) and various other objects invluding 3ltr water bladder. Luckily it doesn't have hard armour or real steel ammunition because it would weigh a ton. It's actually quite comfortable though and distributes the weight really well.

I ran an OP last May with soft armor. I may never skip leg day but after about 3 hours I took them out. Not fun. Even when we do work with SF/Army guys (we always kit up the same as them to prove it can be done) I hate using plates. Makes me love putting on my airsoft kit - way lighter by comparison haha.

Bloody hell, dude! I'm glad mine didn't come with armour. I actually do squats wearing this vest XD. Army gear is very practical outside of airsoft and military.

The osprey system is bloody heavy to start before you even put any kit on it BUT and this is the crucial bit , if it’s a properly sized and fitted to you you just don’t notice the weight , it just feels right . 

Ive seen loads on the field with ones that are obviously too big/small and I’d think there the ones that feel really really heavy to wear once fully ‘kitted out’ .

O must have the right size then because it distributes my weight real easy :)

There ya go then ! 😁

A well fitted carrier (what ever the type) shouldn’t have any real affect on you ability to function due to you wearing it , if it does create any problems to your mobility then it’s not fitting correctly . 👍

I totally agree with you. Never had an issue with wearing webbing and load carrying equipment in real life. There is a lot to be said for carrying stuff lower down and letting your pelvis take the weihht rather than  your  shoulders and back.

 

My comment about airsofters (mostly YouTube ones) finding airsoft guns heavy just highlights the fact we are using toy  guns, as IMO they are always lighter than the real thing.

Oh god yes ! Nothing makes you hate life more than being on your absolute chin strap AND having to lump a fully loaded assault rifle across open uneven ground , T’was mainly an SLR for me with a sterling chucked in the mix every now and again! 😫

L85/86 for me. But yeah, definitely some difference, and longer harder days than a typical skirmish.

Given that I was the first one traded in my troop, I always had to carry the 320 clansman balanced on my bergen lid.

Try being a Gpmg gunner. Or my best back breaker yet, Minimi gunner and the only bowman radio user in the section as well.

My throat mic broke yesterday. Amazon were kind enough to refund me so i decided to buy myself a Tomtac Bowman style headset and a BaoFeng-compatible PTT.

I interested to see these when you get them , and how good they are!!

i was forced (by budget) to get knock offs without the sound amplification 

false economy I fear 😬

I'm probably going to mod the Bowman so i have some padding on my ear (they look unpadded) but i'm buying the PTT next week to save money. I have some new stuff arriving so i'm happy.
