My CQB Kit.
It’s an SDS Ranger Assault Carry Kit or RACK. I only use it for CQB scenarios and other urban settings, because let’s be honest, it’s too damn hot to wear it in the Jungle.
Plus, the way it’s set up, it snags on every damn branch in the way. And it’s damn near impossible to crawl in, without raising your profile by a few vital inches.
That being said,
I’m very happy with it when I do use it.
1. SDS Medic Pouch
2. 2 ALICE 1911 magazine pouches
3. Medal of Honor Neptune Patch
1. 200 rd SAW pouch, containing a day’s worth of food
2. 3 RACK pouches; 2 M4 Mags each
3. 2 SDS CQB pouches; 1 M4 Mag Each
4. 200 rd SAW pouch, used as general utility pouch
(not in pic)
1. dropleg holster
2. 1911 w/ taclight
3. 2 more 1911 magazines on the holster.
I’d like to share my Jungle kit. It took nearly a year to complete, getting all the necessary pouches and gear.
The base vest is the classic Enhanced Load Bearing Vest (ELBV) with an ALICE belt strung through the provision for the belt.
Duct taped in between the shoulder blades is a Flyye MBITR radio pouch.
From Left to Right:
1. 100 rd SAW pouch —- used as a general utility pouch
2. SDS Molle Canteen pouch —- holds 1L of water
3. 2 200 rd SAW pouches —- one contains my Emergency Medical Kit and the other contains 1 day’s worth of food.
4. Bianchi pistol holster —- that took awhile to get a hold of
5. 2 ALICE pistol magazine pouches —- holds 2 1911 magazines.
6. 6 M4 Magazines in the ELBV and 2 more magazines in my left pants pocket.
to follow: 2 more 1L bottles, to round it out to an even 3L on my person.
I play most of my airsoft games in the jungle so ventilation takes precedence over protection. another thing that took a long time was sound proofing it. (making sure nothing made unnecessary noise)
If I’m staying out for more than 24 hours, I’ll bring a bag containing more food and more water.
Hope you guys enjoy looking through it.
Next up: my CQB (indoor) kit.
More Photos of the guys.

Helmet camera footage CQC Masters.
It involves a 13 man team. 1 sniper, 2 breaching teams and 1 security team, clearing 4 rooms, and the connecting hallway of paper IPSC targets. best time, most accurate shots win.
Photos of my vest that I use in airsoft. It’s a Ranger Assault Carry Kit from Specialty Defense Systems. I picked it up from a gear collector and spent the past 3 months adding patches as I could afford them. It carries 2 Life Gear glowsticks, some combos, a full medkit, 7 M4 Magazines, and the team radio. The entire vest fully loaded weighs close to 10 lbs.
i want these babies! but i have to be 18 years or older to use these. soon my grenades, soon….. muhahahah lol
In airsoft, your body is your best piece of kit. Fitness is a huge factor especially if you go on 24 hour games. I would say Airsoft is 70% fitness 30% gear. A fit and healthy player is equivalent to an entire squad of couch potatoes.
Age and smoking isn’t really an issue. The question is cardiovascular health and endurance. Expect to do tons of running, sprinting, and in some cases long hikes before getting your objective done. The only way to do this is to have a program outside of your weekend games in order to be fit enough for them. One does not become fit for airsoft by playing it often, one becomes fit by training for it.
I’m not a proponent of going to the gym everyday until you look like Superman, I’m simply advocating that you get healthy. If you’re really into this sport, then congratulations, you’re joining an increasing number of people who are leaving the great indoors and rediscovering the world outside of reruns.
Run thrice a week, push yourself hard. It’ll be worth it. Don’t trick yourself into thinking that because you play intense games over the weekend, it’s enough for the rest of the week. That’s only 2 days out of 7 buddy, you owe yourself so much more.
To help you out, I’ll share some of the sites I’m following now in the next few posts.
