LADIES AIRSOFT KIT - TACTICAL TROUSERS!

Following on last months feature on ladies protective gear for Airsoft, this month I’ll be running through some of the tactical trousers - both unisex and women’s cuts that work for me. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of female tactical trousers out there so this list is a culmination of over four years of trial and error but I’ve finally found 4 pairs that not only give great fit but can stand up to the stresses of the sport.

VIPER UNISEX ELITE PANTS

PC: Mike O'Neill
First let’s start off with the Viper unisex elite pants! I first used these pants all the way back in 2015, I was looking for a pair of adjustable trousers in Multicam that had built in knee pads, that were also under £60 and at just under £40 these fit the bill perfectly. They are made from a mix of Polyester ripstop and cotton which is not only comfortable but is quick wicking and feels strong/durable.

The most important factor for me is of course fit and as they are made in sizes 28” all the way up to a 42" inch waist, they are really inclusive of different sizes. I chose the 28” waist (my waist actually measures 29” but they have a little give) and I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried them on as they fitted me really well, not only around the waist but they didn’t look baggy around the bum or knees - this is because they have some great features that make them completely adjustable including a Velcro/zipped fly, elasticated waist adjustment, internal kneepad adjusters, a velcro knee retention strap and an adjustable velcro ankle fastener.


PC: Mike O'Neill
As I’ve said, the Viper V Cam Elite pants have built in neoprene lined ABS removable knee pads.The built in knee pads on the Viper Elite pants are easy to take out and pop back in and even have Velcro to keep them in place. After a while the velcro does get a bit worn so they have a tendency to pop out but this is easily replaceable.

In regards to aesthetics the Viper V Camouflage is very a crisp and colour saturated camo similar to BTP/MTP. The trousers also have a plethora of pockets for storage, ranging from the two front hand pockets that house the internal knee pad adjusters, two back pockets, two expandable thigh pockets, two expandable cargo pockets and lastly the two ankle utility pockets making them a practical and useful piece of kit to wear on the field.


The Viper Elite Pants are available from Military 1st and of course Viper themselves, for around £40.



EMERSON G3 UNISEX COMBAT PANTS

PC: James Murray/EG
Next up we have the Emerson G3 unisex combat pants, which are a budget version of the well known Crye Precision combat pant design. They are constructed from a poly/cotton blend fabric, are fully adjustable at the waist, knees and at the legs by velcro tabs. I found these at the end of 2015 when my Viper Elite Pants were damaged in an airsoft accident and I needed a new pair of tactical trousers with knee pads to protect my knees from scuffs and what not during games.

The detachable knee pads are made from a rubbery material that has is easy manipulated but still offers the level of protection airsofters need in the field. I prefer these kneepads to the plastic versions as they mould to the knees better.

They also have a load of pockets to keep all your gubbins in, including : two front pockets, two rear-zip pockets, two velcro tab cargo pockets with a small pocket inside, two velcro tab small pockets on upper legs and lastly two velcro tab small pockets on bottom legs.


PC: James Murray/EG
They’re a unisex size, but because they are a brand from Asia the sizing is a little bit smaller than UK and US sizing. I chose a 30” waist and they were comfortable around the waist thanks to the low profile waist adjustment system, and didn’t look baggy around the knees. They are a bit shorter on the legs than most brands of trousers which for me isn’t a problem being 5”4 but for ladies taller than me it could be a bit of an ankle flasher situation. The knee pad adjusters means that the kneepads are always in the right place.

They’re available in sizes 30 - 38W from Army Panda for between $53-55 depending on what camo option (which is around £41 at the current exchange) and they are available in SO many camo options which is my favourite thing about these! They’re available in MultiCam, black MultiCam, US woodland, grey, MultiCam Arid, MR, AOR2 and A-Tacs FG so there are loads of options no matter what loadout you decide to run.

HELIKON TEX WOMEN’S URBAN TACTICAL PANTS

PC: Stacey Hardwick
Next up is the Helikon Tex Women’s Urban Tactical Pants, which are a pair of durable, lightweight field trousers that have a specific women’s cut. 

First things first, with these trousers it is really important to measure your body and check the sizing, In mens/unisex combat trousers I would usually wear a 28" waist, 32" leg and they do the trick but as these are an extremely fitted pair of trousers I had to measure my waist and hips to make sure I had the correct size. I'm a size 8/10 in most jeans/trousers etc and worked out my size to be a 30" waist.

PC: Stacey Hardwick
I was very impressed with the feel of the material, it doesn't feel or look cheap - has a little stretch to it and is a durable 2 way rip stop blend fabric - perfect for the field. Looking at the overall construction of the garment it was solid and with this I threw them on so let's check out the fit. So these are designed specifically to fit the anatomy of the female form and have a classic jean neck shape to prevent the trousers from slipping down. I am very happy with the fit, they are comfy and not too restrictive. After putting these through their paces off the field with squats, running during my daily fitness routine for most activities, especially for range days the size is perfect however if I were to wear these for an Airsoft game I would probably opt for a size bigger because I like my trousers to be a little looser to enable a better range of movement especially when I'm crawling under/climbing over or through obstacles to get those kills on the field. The trousers are very fitted around the waist, hips, buttocks and thigh areas and loosen up around the knees. The length of the trousers is 34" no matter what size you opt for and this is to give the user greater freedom in choosing their leg length - just fold them up and you're good to go.

They feature a elasticated waist and zip/velcro fastening which gives them a little movement around the waist and keeps them securely fastened. There are 7 wide belt loops which are perfect for loadout belts for holsters, mags etc. I feel pretty confident when I say that it is unlikely that you would need a belt to keep them up as they are very form fitting. They also come equipped with 12 pockets - two front pockets with strengthened edges, two wide back pockets, two slim back pockets for accessories, two angled internal waistband pockets, two zipped thigh cargo pockets and two velcro thigh pockets. 

The women’s UTP come in 4 colours - shadow, black, khaki and olive drab. Lastly, let's talk prices. The shadow colour-way is available from Military 1st for £53.00 with free shipping.

FIRST TACTICAL WOMEN'S SPECIALIST TACTICAL PANTS

PC: Stuart Manks
And lastly, the First Tactical Specialist Tactical Pants. These are a durable pair of tactical trousers that are made specifically for women in the field, whether that be the range, airsoft, outdoor activities and even first response work. The pants are made from a double ripstop poly/cotton blend fabric that has the Teflon® Shield+ stain repellent finish to keep them looking fresh even in harsh conditions, this combination gives the end user sturdiness and functionality. My favourite thing about the First Tactical range of trousers is the feel of the fabric used – as soon as you get them out of the packaging, it feels smooth, sturdy, tough and ready for any task.

In regards to the construction of the pants, from my experience First Tactical always do a fab job. The running gusset construction gives the user full motion ability, whilst the triple needle stitching at critical seams keeps the pants going strong and together even after harsh use. The pants have double layered knees for durability and internal knee pad access that can be used with the First Tactical knee pads (to be purchased separately). The pants have a multitude of pockets including two back pockets, two front pockets, two front slit pockets (for mobile phones and magazines) and two organiser pockets (that can hold M4 magazines) with laminated pocket flaps. The pocket flaps are laminated to make sure they stay down and that the pants have a professional look even after being worn, they fasten with hook & loop Velcro and can be tucked in for quick access functionality.


PC: Suart Manks
The Specialist Tactical Pants are available in the UK, in US sizes 2, all the way up to a size 20 in both a regular and tall leg – it is worth noting that the sizes on their website are American sizes but they do have a size chart for reference. I usually wear a UK 8 so opted for the US 4 with the regular leg. In regards to fit, the pants have the First Tactical Advanced Women's Fit which is designed and constructed uniquely for a woman's shape – it has contoured cut curves that give a better fit around the hips, buttocks and upper leg to allow for optimal freedom of movement – they aren’t too tight but give the movement you need for strenuous activity without being baggy. As they are a women’s fit the waistband on the pants sits just above my hips rather than on my waist unlike most tactical trousers – which is much comfier. Overall, I’m really happy with the fit!

The pants are available in limited colours – navy, black and khaki. This is my only complaint about them, that they aren’t available in the same range of colours like the men’s trousers are. I would absolutely LOVE a pair of these in Olive Drab Green!

As for price, the pants retail at £44.95.

Overall, I really like them – they are a sturdy, durable and fitted alternative to traditional BDU trousers. They fit well and are a reasonable price, but I would love to see them in more colours!

Of course there are other trousers out there that are made in a specific female cut, and unisex cuts that will also work for many of the ladies out there, these are just four of the best that I’ve tried over my time in airsoft. It is my hope for the future that more companies will make tactical clothing for women!

PTS SYNDICATE NORTH AMERICA HQ VISIT!

Hey everyone!

Welcome back to the blog! As many of you will have seen, this week I returned to YouTube with some videos in collaboration with my sponsors PTS Syndicate! Whilst I was in LA, I visited PTS North America HQ to chat to them about the PTS Centurion Arms CM4 ERG and the PTS KINETIC SCAR MREX M-LOK rails!




The PTS Centurion Arms CM4 C4-10 ERG is an airsoft gun collaboration between Centurion Arms and PTS Syndicate that uses an ERG (Electric Recoil Gun) system! The system is based on the latest generation KWA AEG 3 system. The ERG simulates recoil via a proprietary Kinetic Feedback System. When used with the proprietary ERG magazine, that is switchable between 30 or 120 round capacity, it is capable of an electrical auto cut-off when the last round is fired. If you are willing to forgo the cut-off, the ERG can still use any normal AEG magazine such as the PTS EPM for AEGs. A quick change spring system allows you to easily customize the fps/m/s of the gun to your specific needs. Included as standard equipment for the CM4 ERG, are PTS’ highly popular proprietary design Enhanced Polymer Grip, Enhanced Back-Up Sight, Enhanced Polymer Magazine and Enhanced Polymer Stock. - www.ptssyndicate.com



      Features:
  • 10” PTS Centurion Arms C4 Rail
  • 10.3” CQB Length Barrel
  • Enhanced Back Up Iron Sights (EPBUIS)
  • Enhanced Polymer Magazine (ERG) – New 30/120 rounds switch can fill all your airsoft needs.
  • EP Grip – Compact (EPG - C)
  • EP Stock (EPS)
  • Rear Wired & Li-Po Ready – Can handle the power of 11.1v Li-Po batteries.


Check out my video of the PTS Syndicate Centurion Arms CM4 here:





The Kinetic MREX™ Modular Receiver Extension is designed to be simple, durable, and lightweight. The slim profile of the MREX greatly improves the aesthetic of the SCAR by giving it a long sleek profile. Its extended rail length in front of the front sight/gas block increases the rifle’s modularity by increasing the real estate for accessory attachments as well as improves ergonomics by better accommodating the modern forward support hand rifle hold and improving the overall rifle’s balance. The MREX’s one piece construction ensures maximum durability without any significant weight penalty - www.ptssyndicate.com




     Features:
  • Works with VFC / WE / Tokyo Marui SCAR models (see specifications for details)
  • M-LOK™ modular design
  • Simple, lightweight and highly durable one-piece desig
  • Improved rifle balance and weight distribution
  • Better accommodates the modern support hand forward rifle hold
  • Rotation limited QD sockets on each side

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?! YOUTUBE RETURN!

Hey everyone!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I want to chat to you guys and girls about something - a question many of you on the internet have been asking for the last few months which I've only ever explained very briefly: why I stopped uploading to YouTube.





In November 2017, I stopped uploading to YouTube. Just stopped. No explanation or announcement. I simply packed away my GoPro's and DSLR's and put all my focus into the blog and my Instagram account. The truth is, at the time I was really burnt out. Between the blog, YouTube and all my writing commitments I had taken on too much in such a short space of time. Editing filled me with dread, watching other YouTubers content just made me feel like my own content wasn't good enough and I always had a better gameday when I didn't record so I went on a YouTube hiatus until I felt the passion to go back to it.


Here's the good news. I'm back. New equipment, new drive and focus and more importantly, new adventures! Stay tuned for my America content that'll be up on the channel in the next couple of weeks and on my return to the UK I'll also be uploading more gameplay, loadout videos and product reviews. You can subscribe to the channel here!

WOMEN'S AIRSOFT KIT FEATURE - PROTECTIVE GEAR!

Over my time in airsoft, it’s been no secret that I’ve struggled to find kit that fits and works for both my body shape and height - weighing in at 57kg and measuring just 5”3 I’m an airsofter of small stature, meaning often the smallest sizes aren’t small enough but along the way I’ve found brands/product that work for me so I’ve put together a kit list of my go-to protective gear suitable for women and younger players.

FACE PRO

Kicking off this kit feature is face pro! As women’s faces are smaller than mens, the regular mesh/fabric half face masks tend to be a little too long from the tip of the nose on the mask to the end of the chin but, one company has developed a half mesh/fabric face mask based on the feedback of their female customers to create the first specific women’s half face mask for airsoft: The One Tigris Women’s 4.5inch Mesh Mask!

Based on the feedback of their female customer’s, One Tigris have taken their 6” tactical foldable half face mask and cut 1.5 inches off the bottom mesh and shortened the chin fabric of the 2 sides, meaning it fits smaller faces much more comfortably. It fits securely on the head/face thanks to the adjustable straps and the padded sides make it comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It’s lightweight and the mesh provides enough ventilation for there not to be any issues with fogging.

The 4.5 inch mesh mask by One Tigris retails for £16.98 on Amazon and comes in a range of colours including: black, black MutliCam, tan, ranger green and MultiCam.

GLOVES

Next up in my kit feature is gloves - this has always been a tough one for me as I have really dainty hands but I’ve found two pairs that I keep coming back to!


The EG FUG (Field Utility Glove) is a glove made for paintball, airsoft and outdoor activities from Enola Gaye that is touchscreen compatible, comes in a range of 6 colours including black, grey, camo, tan, digicam and olive drab and has a cute little pistol/sight graphics on the first two fingers as a cheeky FU design feature. 

They come in a range of sizes from XS-XL and what’s really cool is that the XS size has been sized to my own hand and whilst they are a little roomy around the back of the hand they fit my fingers and wrist well. They retail for £19.99 and are available from the EG website and EG retailers! They’re a great budget pair of gloves for airsofters that need a smaller glove.

PC: James Murray for Enola Gaye


The PIG full dexterity tactical (FDT) Delta Utility glove is my absolute go to! It’s a slip-on tactical glove that although small and a seemingly ordinary pair of gloves boast a bunch of awesome features including: touchscreen compatible forefinger and thumb, single-layer palm for tactile sensitivity, bar-tacked paracord pull loops and they even have a silicon printed grip on the palm for extra grip making them practical and usable for not only airsoft but for other outdoor activities.

The fold-over finger construction and elastic wrist for quick put on and take off sequence not only make them more comfortable for the user but it also gives them a sleeker, more sophisticated look - nothing like the purpose made airsoft gloves we usually see on the field. They aren't padded or extra thick around the knuckles so getting shot in the hands whilst wearing these does still suck, but honestly? Finger shots are quite rare and I'd rather have the dexterity than bulky protection. They're easy to put on, quick drying after they've gotten wet and the touchscreen compatible finger and thumb is super useful! Overall, I'm super impressed with them.

The PIG FDT Delta Utility Gloves are available in black, coyote, ranger green & carbon grey and are also available in sizes ranging from a small to an extra extra-large the size range is super inclusive. They are available from Tactical Kit for £30.95!

PLATE CARRIER


The ‘Small Modular Plate Carrier’ from LBX, or the 0300S is the compact model of LBX’s popular Modular Plate Carrier. The carrier has 360 modular webbing, on the front panel, back panel, and cummerbund so players can customise their carrier on all sides. The top rows of webbing on the front panel also have hook Velcro so you can show off your favourite patches.

The carrier can take 8 x 10 plates if the operator chooses to and It features a heavy-duty drag handle which is probably more applicable in real-world application than airsoft but its there if you need to quickly drag your mates out of a firefight. It also has hydration/comms guides on the front and rear panels to keep hydration system and communication systems organised and of course to prevent any loose cables being snagged during use – after all, no one likes catching their lines on door handles!

The 0300S is fully adjustable - the cummerbund is adjustable up to 46", and as my waist is 29” it fits snuggly but can still be adjusted to give me room to wear the carrier over a softshell in the winter. As the cummerbund also has Velcro closure it can be securely fastened. The carrier has adjustable shoulder straps which means the operator can adjust where it sits on the torso. Both shoulder straps have padded strap coverings which makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time even when the carrier is loaded up. I’ve found very few plate carriers that can comfortably fit my small frame and contour my waist and chest but the 0300S does the job. As I’ve said, the cummerbund fits my waist pretty snug but still leaves me enough room to be worn over a light jacket or hoodie. The overall size looks/feels right on my torso and fits the contours of my body.

The LBX 0300S comes in MAS Grey, MultiCam, Coyote, Black and Wolf Grey. On the LBX website, it is available for $159.95, which works out at £114 to across the pond.

BATTLE BELT


The Cobra Shooters Belt from FRV Tailoring is a low profile, lightweight and affordable load bearing system. It has an inner belt made of one layer of webbing with velcro hook on the outside, you place the outer belt with all your pouches, holsters etc attached over the inner belt and fasten it with the cobra buckle.

The belt is 50mm/2" in width with 18 columns of molle. The molle loops run along the top and bottom of the outer belt and they're compatible with any molle or pal attachable pouches and holsters. The outer belt has a double layer of webbing to give it that rigidity and it has a cobra buckle that is rated up to 4000 lb’s. The belt has plenty of room for all my kit and isn't weighed down by it. The pouches are really secure and don't bounce up and down too much! The best bit about this belt is that it can stay set-up for future use!

The FRV cobra shooters belt is lighter, thinner than most belts I’ve tried and because of this it sits on my hips firmly but doesn't rub. It's comfortable to wear even during long ops such as Tora Bora Raid! The belts are sized to the users waist size. Although I have a 28" waist it is more comfortable for me to wear belts on my hips so I opted for the 30.

What's the cost? The belt retails at £69.99 from FRV Tailoring which is super affordable compared to similar belts on the market, giving airsofters that high end look and handmade quality for less!



BOOTS


The Pentagon Achilles Trekking 6” boots are my go-to airsoft boots!

These were brand new to Military 1st in 2017 and they’ve stood the test of time! They are a coyote suede leather, ankle length boot that comes with features including a Dintex waterproof and breathable membrane lining to keep your feet nice and dry during ops and an Ortholite sole which makes them comfy to wear for extended periods of time. 

I usually wear a 4.5 shoe so chose a size 5.to give me a little extra space for thick socks during the winter months. The boots are really comfortable across the toes, instep and don’t rub against my heels. The top of the boot sits just above my ankle so I’m pretty happy with the ankle support they give and they have a pretty decent sole on them as well. I’ve worn these around the world from CQB games in the UK to wet, MilSims in the US and they’ve held up well. They aren’t completely waterproof so I wear a pair of seal socks on wet game days to keep my feet warm and dry.s

They retail at £97.50 from Military 1st.
