- Maximum Air flow / maximum confort.

- Body armor type adjustable Inner and outer waist strap. Adjustable Velcro shoulder strap. One size fits most sizes.

*Patches, pouches, water bladder and mannequin in images NOT Included.


Like all other Matrix Tactical System (MTS) designs, this vest is designed to be simple yet highest quality possible. It has everything you need in a Loading Bearing Harness and more, with the MTS quality you can come to expect.


Look & Feel: The vest appears high quality construction and "simple". Almost as simple as possible, yet at a closer glance, it has webbing all over for any MOLLE pouches you need and a hidden full size hydration carrier. This vest can be customized for any leavel of gaming in minutes and be put on in seconds.


Finish: Perfectly constructed.


Field Review: For players that wants to customize your vest with ONLY the most useful pouches, this is where you start. The hydration carrier is built in internally, providing the entire back panel for other useful accessories such as the radio or RAV ID tags. It is light weight unlike most plate carriers that offers the same feature. Essentially, plate carriers are not very useful for Airsoft and it generates too much heat and weight, making this LBV one of the most ideal for Airsofting.

Thats alot of kit!!!


I am new to airsoft as well and have been collecting kit.


I would steer clear of anything web tex.....looks good but is crap.


Be on the look out for some used kit as you will get a better quality for same price.


Also maybe look out for a complete vest/chest rig as again you can save some cash.


Check out the for sale section.


The mix match of camo may look odd. Different camos is OK but try to keep the same shades ie all desert or all green.


As for guns G&G are highly recommended as a starter gun.

as above if your 18 then wait until you can get ukara and buy a black gun. but if you want to buy now then id get the g&g link further up the page

also the mix of camo will look very odd also id recommend a long sleeve shirt as if you in woodland there are plenty of thorns and branchs to catch your arms on.

boots wise go to a local store/surplus shop and try some on as these are very important for comfort and safety and what works for one person might not be as comfortable for others.

rig wise id wait until you have played a few games get to know what you want to carry and then you can asses what you need from that but again i wouldnt mix camo just get a plain green/tan/brown one with matching pouchs that way you dont need to worry about changing it if you get new uniform.

same with mags wait until you have played a couple of games to see what works for you that way you will know how many rounds you need and how many mags (if you are trigger happy then high caps would be the way to go or if conservative then mid caps etc)


as for battery go to www.component-shop.com you will find them cheaper.

First of all Dont worry, i am not doing different camos i am keeping those coulours for the trouserd and thinking of black as a t-shirt ecause it looks sexy xD

Most site have rental kit. If not some old clothes you dont mind getting dirty. Clothing wise for buying it is all dependent on budget and camo preference. You can pick up DPM stuff very cheap and there is alot of desert DPM around at the mo. Or even a pair of market stall combats to get you started.


You will only normally get the gun and one high cap mag when renting so you wont need any load carrying stuff really.


I would ask other players if you can look at their guns and kit. Most wont mind and you can see different set ups and options. My first game i bugged loads of people for a try on their guns. No one minded. That's one of the good things i have noticed about this sport it is all very friendly.

Another reason to "try" before you buy.


You can go for a light load out with just a belt and few mag pouches or a heavy load out with full PC and all the pouches for mags and spares etc..


I use a full PC with home made soft plates, tripple mag pouch, pistol mag pouch, small utility/first aid pouch, large utility pouch, serpa holster and a cargo pack with bladder. Is quite heavy when fully loaded.

most sites will have rental guns with a high cap mag and will supply full face masks so the only thing you need is some boots at this point you could also get your own eye wear as what they site will supply wont be the best comfort wise

Being new to airsoft, I've just kitted myself out. I started by hiring a gun and then buying kit as I was doing my 3 games to get UKARA registered.


1st game - wore old clothes and some old boots, hired a gun and borrowed goggles


2nd game - I'd bought my own DPM trousers/jacket, some decent boots, a half face mask, some gloves and goggles


3rd game - Bought a tactical vest, some decent socks and got my stamp. The very next day, I bought my all black gun, etc.


Take it steady, buy what you need as your getting your UKARA and then you can spread the cost over 2 months.

Yeah do exactly what the first guy said.


Go to your local airsoft skirmisher, play 3 games, not sure in what time space though. I think its in 2 months or so.

At least 3 games in 2 months but dont quote me on that and then you can get a RIF (The real replicas).

As I have seen they are a little more costly but if you can afford all that equipment then you probably have a

full time job so you can wait another week. get more money. Buy a proper metal and aluminum finish RIF and

all the other equipment you wanted.


I want that MOLLE but I cant find it in the UK anywhere for balls. The ones here are like £100 so I think

I might be buying one from like china or america.


And before you buy all that equipment, trust me rent for 3 games see how much you actually like airsoft

and then buy all the equipment depending on how much you need to play.


I mean if you are only gonna play once in like 2-3 months then you might as well give up on the glasses

and the boots. Just my opinion:)


Im in the same situation. Exactly the same.
