PAINTBALL MASKS FOR AIRSOFT? VALKEN PROFIT REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

So today I’m back with another review for Valken and in this review I’m going to be testing their Profit SC paintball mask! Now I know a lot of you out there hate everything paintball, but hear me out! Whilst I was in the States I used a paintball mask whilst playing CQB as the FPS limits were a fair bit higher than ours in the UK and it was comfy, didn’t fog, gave me good vision and kept my face protected. Now although I have never been a huge fan of paintball masks, using one did change my mind so I am open to trying different models.



Let’s first talk about the specs: the Valken Profit SC has an extreme vision, fog resistant thermal lens that features a scratch resistant coating. The lens has a patented quick change lens system and there is also a “Snap Click” replaceable triple layer face foam system. The mask has a fully adjustable dual head strap which keeps the mask secure on your face, and a comfort fit chin strap for improved fit / safety, although honestly, I can’t really tell what difference this makes when the mask is on.




I wore my Profit mask for a game day of hard hitting CQB at a local airsoft site to test a number of things – vision, fogging, cheek weld, fit and overall protection. In regards to fit, I have a very small head and the dual head strap adjusted enough to give me a secure fit – with no wobble or movement whilst I was running around. For overall protection, I really rate it – I actually think these masks provide a level of confidence in CQB as you know if you pop your head around the corner being shot won’t hurt/cause any damage.

What was the cheek weld like? This is my only gripe with paintball masks, you can’t quite get the cheek weld you get with a half mesh face lower. Although you don’t really need to use a RDS in super close CQB it is nice to have that sight picture. The sides of the mask are more flexible and do allow for manipulation just not enough for me to use my RDS as I usually would.

Did it fog? I ran the mask for most of the day as is and there were no signs of fogging which is awesome! This is one of the main reasons why I like wearing one. Just out of curiosity however I did put the rain vent cover over the vents at the top of the mask and ran it for a game and it did start to fog – not too much but enough to impede my vision slightly. So my advice would be unless it’s really heavy rain, give the vent cover a miss.

The Profit SC mask is available from the Valken website for $99.95, which works out to about £76. It is available in 3 different colour ways – blue, black and red. I opted for the black colourway as it’ll go with more of my loadouts.

FLYYE FAST ATTACK PLATE CARRIER FROM MILITARY 1ST!

Hey everyone!

I have another review for you, as most of you will know from reading the recent posts on the blog I've teamed up with Military 1st to bring you guys a short series of affordable plate carrier set ups for both tan and green team uniforms and today we are going to look at/review the base plate carrier for the second build in the series, the Flyye Industries Fast Attack Plate Carrier in olive drab!


The Fast Attack Plate Carrier from Flyye Industries is a lightweight plate carrier that is designed to offer the operator great mobility and also a good level of load carrying capacity. Although it looks like a pretty simple PC, it has a bunch of great features - the most notable of which being that both the front and back of the plate carrier are completely covered from top to bottom with MOLLE webbing straps for attaching a whole range of MOLLE pouches, panels and packs. It also has strips of Velcro along the lower half of the front of the carrier which could be used to attach Velcro pouch panels. As you can see from the images, there is SO much carrying space on the plate carrier, which is pretty awesome.

As the name suggests, the plate carrier is all about getting the job done quickly and efficiently - along with the Velcro strips for quick pouch panel attachments, the adjustable padded shoulder straps and quick release buckles allow for quick adjustments and modifications to size. There is also 1/4" thick closed cell foam in both the shoulders and also in the upper torso parts to help alleviate load stress on the operators back and shoulders. One thing that has really impressed me with the Fast Attack Plate Carrier is just how lightweight it is! The Plate Carrier weighs in at just 850g including the soft armour plates. This would make it a great option as part of a MilSim, battlesim or a weekender game loadout. We all know the aches and pains that inevitably comes with wearing a plate carrier for extended periods of time, and having something that weighs so little as the basis of a loadout will help in minimising this.



The vest is made of durable Invista 1000D Cordura Nylon - which is much more resistant to the usual wear, tear and stresses of high movement activity such as airsoft than your standard Nylon. One of the big positives for this material is that it is also water resistant and that no water will retain on its surface - making it a good option for wet skirmish days and MilSims as the water won't pool on the surface, infiltrate the materials and get weighed down with extra weight.


It is available in a fair few colour/camo options - olive drab, black, coyote, and ranger green, MultiCam, ATACS FG and ATACS AU. As well as colour options it also comes in 2 sizes - medium which fits 10" x 12" plates and large which takes 11" x 14" plates. It is worth mentioning that the soft armour plates are included. I opted for the medium size and although I would normally wear a small and admittedly I did think it looked a little huge when I got it out of the packaging, it does adjust. Due to my small waist, I always fair better with plate carriers without cummerbunds in regards to fit! Fortunately this vest has nothing except the quick release buckles so it is definitely smaller than some of the other tactical vests that I have tried. The quick release buckles pull right in, enough for the plate carrier to not move around when I'm running, bending and moving around. I do however think, that for someone with a smaller frame than my own it might be a little loose around the body and move around during high energy activity. This is definitely a plate carrier suited to those who have a medium to larger frames.

As I'm using this carrier as the base for the green team uniform I chose the olive drab colour option, as there is a wider range of pouches available that will colour match perfectly.


What about price? The Flyye Fast Attack Plate Carrier in olive drab is available from the Military 1st website for £80.95. It is worth mentioning that the camo options are more expensive - retailing for £125.95 but this is understandable as camo pattern material is more expensive than block colours. Honestly, I think £81 for a plate carrier with plates but without pouches is really reasonable, especially one that is made to military specifications. It has a large carrying capacity and is lightweight enough to be used for both your regular Sunday skirmishes and longer games without being uncomfortable.

I'll be using this carrier as the base for the green tam affordable plate carrier set up which will be featured in a YouTube video on the Femme Fatale Airsoft YouTube channel and also broken down in a blog post so be sure to keep your eyes out for those, which will be uploaded/posted at the start of November!

AIMCAM CAMO SHOOTING GLASSES!

Hey everyone!

I'm back with another review for you and this time we’re looking at the AimCam Camo shooting glasses which were featured in the ‘Femme Fatale’s Favourites August 2017!’

The AimCam shooting glasses are a pair of rated shooting glasses suitable for shooting activities ranging from the range, clay pigeon shooting and even airsoft, that have a 3M pixel CMOS camera mounted to the frame that is capable of recording at 30 FPS in 1080p or 60 FPS in 720p for capturing all those game days and awesome moments.





The glasses take up to 32GB memory card, have rechargeable batteries - which can record around an hour and a half worth of footage but they can also record whilst charging from portable USB power pack and they have an internal microphone for capturing sound. Included in the box you get: the AimCam frame, an AimCam hardcase and protective AimCam bag to keep your glasses safe, spare clips/screws, a USB Data/charging cable, micro tool, interchangeable safety/UV protection lenses in clear, black, yellow and an adjustable headstrap.

The lenses included in the pack meet European standards EN166:2001 (standard for Personal Eye Protection) and EN172:1994/A1:2000 (standard for Personal Eye Protection – sunglare filters for industrial use). They are also CE rated. AimCam have also developed a set of tactical lenses that are ideal for airsoft that meet EN166F (impact resistant standard).



AimCam have developed their own app to go with the glasses so the user can get the most out of their glasses – the app lets you view the position of the camera so you can adjust it and lock it into place (no more guessing the right angle for your camera equipment!) and as the glasses have WiFi enabled live streaming users can use the app to livestream to their social media platforms such as Facebook. The app can also be used to capture 12M Pixel photos from the recorded footage. The app is super useful, especially for those social media butterflies amongst us.




The glasses are easy to use – charge them up, pop the memory card in, press the on/record button and you are ready to go. There is a separate WiFi button that turns on the glasses WiFi and enables you to connect with the app. The app is also super easy to use.

The AimCam shooting glasses retail for £199.00 and are available in 2 colourways: black or camo. As they have a hefty price tag they are a huge investment, but if you’re an airsofter who uploads to YouTube or likes to record gameplay footage these are a pretty awesome gadget to have as they really do give you a perfect first person view.

Are there any improvements I would make? There’s only a couple of things that I think could be improved on the AimCams because no matter how you look at it, they are cool AF. I would love to be able to record 60 FPS at 1080p for recording for YouTube, and I gave feedback to AimCam earlier this year that when I’m wearing ear protection, because of the thickness of the temples (due to the electronics in them) the gap between the face and the lenses increases a tad, they have taken on board this feedback and are now developing a set of AimCams with thinner temples.

Overall, I think they’re an awesome gadget to have and super useful for those of us who like to record their gamedays but they are a purchase you should be sure of because of the hefty price tag.

SPECNA ARMS SA-C04 CORE CARBINE REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

So I’m back with another review, and this time it’s a review for Gunfire.pl! Today we’re going to be looking at one of the new CORE™ AEGs from Specna Arms - the SA - C04. The CORE™ range of replicas have been designed to be tough, lightweight and more affordable for both beginners and seasoned airsoft players alike.


For the new CORE™ range, Specna Arms decided to use more polymer in their construction to make them not only lighter but also more affordable. So let’s breakdown what’s what! The receiver, stock slide, stock and the pistol grip are all made from a super tough fiber-glass reinforced polymer. Whilst the barrel, RIS handguard, flash hider, enlarged charging handle and sling points are all made of metal. As well as other parts including the screws, pins, shell ejection window and mock bolt carrier. 

As for aesthetics, it has a classic M4 look and features a 22 mm top RIS rail, a RIS handguard and an adjustable stock with a textured butt pad. The top rail has a flip-up rear sight and a fixed front sight.  It has a standard flash hider that has a 14 mm left-handed thread. The receiver also bears some pretty cool markings and a serial number.




What about the internals? The gearbox contains 8 mm slide bearings and shimmed steel gears. The system has four anti-reversal latches.  It also features a piston made of polycarbonate polymer that it is equipped with a full steel strip, a type 1 cylinder and a steel circuit-breaker and a precise rotary Hop-Up chamber which makes changing the hopup really easy. The replica also features the CORE™ quick change spring system which enables you to quickly change the power of the gun by swapping out the spring without any special tools – the spring can be changed by removing the stock slide, and then using a long screw driver. Out of the box, I chrono’d the replica at 378 FPS, which is around our legal limit and definitely higher than the 350 FPS site limits but Specna Arms provide an M90 spring in the box, and installing this reduces the muzzle velocity to  around 310 FPS. I rechrono’d at 308 FPS. It is fully compatible with LiPo and LiFe batteries, one of which comes in the box so it’s ready to go.


How does it feel/perform on the field? Well, it certainly feels sturdy and the build quality is solid. It has a snappy fire selector and a good trigger response. On semi-auto it was consistent and the range was good. Full auto was pretty fun, and it had a good grouping.

In the box you get: the SA Core replica, a 300 round high cap magazine, RIS rail covers, tactical forward grip, an additional main spring, battery & charger.

The whole package retails for €133,25 which at the current exchange rate is around £118.65. I’m really impressed with the price point of this model as it’s really affordable, and great value especially considering the extras you get in the box including the battery, charger and foregrip. It’s the complete package which is especially handy for new players and not to mention tough. I am really pleasantly surprised with this model in the Specna Arms CORE™ range.

VALKEN TACTICAL ZULU GLOVE REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

I’m back with another review for Valken and this time we’re looking at the Valken Zulu Gloves! The Valken Tactical Zulu Glove is Valken’s most popular glove in their line of hand protection and it boasts a whole range of features that promote comfort and utility, as well as protection. The Zulu glove offers the end user a balance of comfort and protection for shooting activities ranging from airsoft, to paintball.


The Zulu gloves are made of a breathable material that is not only lightweight and durable but also comfortable. To maximise the comfort for the user the gloves have kevlar covered hardshell knuckles to protect not just against BB/paintball hits but scrapes and scuffs to your knuckles whilst playing as well which is a great feature because we all know that knuckle shots absolutely suck! The hardshell knuckles are really thick and substantial, the gloves also have some rubber and thicker fabric along the fingers which compliments the hardshell knuckles and offers extra protection for the fingers as well.

As for extra features, it also has 4 way stretch articulated joints on the small, ring, middle, and index fingers to allow for movement whilst playing, a soft absorbing pad on the thumb for sweat – keeping those hands dry, double stitched padding on the palm and silicon grip pads on the upper palm and index finger. The silicon grip pads are a cool feature on the glove because they give you more grip allowing for easier reloads, removing mags from pouches etc.


How do they fit? Well most of you know that I have very tiny hands and so for me finding gloves that fit has been a nightmare so I was a little bit sceptical about trying out armoured gloves as I have tried armoured gloves before and they've absolutely drowned my hands – I put these on and there weren't any major fit issues. I did find that the little finger of the glove was a little roomy but apart from that the small size gloves are a pretty good size. The velcro closure adjustment helps keep the gloves tight around the wrist and top of the hand so they aren’t baggy. I used these for a woodland skirmish and found them to be comfortable, quick drying and protected my hands from any hits well. Tan colourway also went well with my MultiCam loadout which is a plus!


Are there any improvements I would make? The only improvement I would make to the gloves would be a lower profile hardshell knuckle for airsoft and a tinier pinky. I really like that they offer so much protection but a more streamlined knuckle would in my opinion improve the aesthetics and would eliminate the extra bulk/weight that is unnecessary for an airsoft glove.

The Zulu glove is available in Black, Olive and Tan. It’s also available in sizes S to a 2XL. As for price, the Zulu glove retails at $36.95 from Valken themselves (which at the current exchange rate is around £28).

FIRST TACTICAL WOMEN'S SPECIALIST TACTICAL PANTS REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

So I'm back with another kit review for the ladies and this time we’re looking at the First Tactical Specialist Tactical Pants for women!


The First Tactical Specialist Tactical Pants are a durable pair of tactical trousers that are made specifically for the field, whether that be the range, airsoft, outdoor activities and even first response work. They are made from a double ripstop polyester/cotton blend fabric that has a Teflon® Shield+ stain repellent finish to keep them looking fresh, 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 and tough.


In regards to the pants construction, 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. The pants have a whole range 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.

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!

FLYYE SWIFT PLATE CARRIER FROM MILITARY 1ST REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

So I’m back with another review! I’ve teamed up with Military 1st to bring you guys a short series of affordable plate carrier set ups for both tan and green team uniforms and first on my list we are going to look/review the base carrier for my first build, the well-known Flyye Swift Plate Carrier in MultiCam.


The Flyye Swift Plate Carrier is an adjustable, lightweight and low profile plate carrier that has a similar look and functionality to the JPC plate carriers that have become really popular amongst airsofters. The plate carrier has a number of built in features including an integrated top admin pouch with a velcro closing and three elastic loops inside the pocket, the admin pouch is suitable for pistol mags, pens, chemlights and tonnes of other useful bits and bobs that you would need to carry on the field. It also has three integrated magazine pouches with loop velcro surface inside, elastic internal dividers and removable shock cords with pull tabs for retention which are suitable for both M4 and M16 magazines. At the top of the plate carrier just above the integrated mag pouches it has a loop Velcro panel for patches (so patchwhores, Flyye have you covered!).










As for its construction, it is made of genuine Crye Precision MultiCam Invista 1000D Cordura Nylon material making it extremely durable and water resistant for wet game days. Its laser-cut Hypalon shoulder straps are extremely durable and make for a closer and more comfortable fit. The stitching and general construction of the carrier is top quality. The carrier comes with two soft armour plates at the front and back included, and the plate compartments have velcro-secured flaps and pull tabs at the bottom making them easy to insert and remove. The plates are a little stiff at first due to their newness, but this is to be expected - after a few game days the plates become a little bit more malleable which means they sit better on the contours of your body.  It has rectangles of durable mesh at the inside top of the plate for ventilation and added comfort – this helps prevent the carrier getting too sweaty on game days. It has sturdy webbing throughout its construction for modular attachments. As it is a JPC style plate carrier it is super lightweight, weighing just over 1.2kg including the soft armour plates that are included, because of this I feel like it would be a really good piece of kit for a MilSim or a weekend event where you end up wearing your plate carrier for an extended period of time.


One of my favourite features of the Flyye Swift plate carrier is the cummerbund made of PALS webbing – the webbing is designed to help improve ventilation and provide extra carrying space for additional magazine pouches and radio pouches etc. I have found in the past that plate carriers with the PALS style of cummerbund have fit my body better than standard cummerbunds. It is easy to put on and adjust – simply pull the front of the vest up to reveal the Velcro fastening, which can be adjusted either at the front or via the cord on the back of the plate carrier. Due to the small size and adjustability of the carrier, I think it would be a great gear option for women and younger players. The only issue I had with its adjustability is that the shoulder straps fit really snug in their cover so it was a little bit of a mission to adjust them, especially with long nails!

I really like the simple aesthetics of the carrier, it’s sleek, low-profile and the integrated mag pouches give it a tidy look but because of the molle on the integrated mag pouches you can add extra pouches to add usability and of course beef it up. For a lightweight loadout I paired this with my cobra shooters belt – super effective and lightweight.  


What’s the retail price? The Flyye Swift plate carrier is available from Military 1st for £137.95 for the MultiCam option and it is available in a wide variety of camouflage patterns - MultiCam, black, coyote, A-TACS FG, ranger green, AOR1 and AOR2. It is worth noting that the price is dependent on the camo, some of the camo options are a little less expensive. It is available in sizes small, and all the way up to an extra-large with room for adjustment on all sizes of the carrier so the size range is really inclusive. In regards to price I would say that the Swift Plate Carrier is in the mid-price range, it definitely isn’t the cheapest plate carrier that you can get your hands on but as it’s made of genuine Crye Precision MultiCam you do have the peace of mind that the material it’s made of is durable and the construction is good quality meaning it will last you a good while! In fact knowing airsofters, you’d probably want a new loadout before you wear one of these out.

I’ll be using this carrier as the base of an affordable to mid-priced plate carrier set up which will be featured in a YouTube video on the Femme Fatale Airsoft YouTube channel so be sure to keep your eyes out for those which will be uploaded towards the end of the month!

VALKEN V-CAM TANGO COMBAT PANTS REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

I’m back with another review for Valken and this time we’re looking at the Valken Tango Combat Pants!


The tango combat pants are a pair of adjustable, padded combat trousers that are designed for our paintball counterparts but can also be used for airsoft thanks to the mainstream camo options they’re available in. They have the baggy look that is signature of paintball uniforms but they have a tonne of features which make them adjustable, functional and most of all comfy! From the drawstring inner waist for adjustment, stretchy areas above knees and also the lower back, adjustable knee pad placement straps and adjustable velcro ankle closure with boot zippers the trousers can be adjusted to fit most frames. The bagginess of the pant also means they are really comfortable to move around in and there’s plenty of room around knees, hips etc for movement.

One of my favourite features of the Tango combat pants is the integrated knee padding which makes them extra durable - the knee pads are larger and cover a greater area than the ones we usually see on airsoft BDUs so they're comfier when taking a knee or being prone. The size and thickness of the knee pads mean they also offer protection for the players who spend a lot of time diving and sliding around! I found when kneeling in the pants, that thanks to the knee straps the padding was wrapped around my whole knee so it was really well protected.



Another thing I like about the Tango combat pants is that they are also FULL to the brim with pockets! From the low profile cargo pockets, deep front hand pockets, dual concealed zippered front pockets, utility rear pockets, zippered ankle and calf pockets to the front thigh velcro pockets it’s clear that these pants are designed to be useful on the field – the utility rear pockets are great for storing extra mags and are easy to access in a hurry when you’re wearing gloves which is a crucial aspect of a trouser pocket for me personally – they have to be easy to reach and access in a hurry!


The pants are available in 3 different camo options - US Woodland, Tiger Stripe and V-CAM, I opted for the V-CAM pair to go with my MultiCam tactical gear (I’m a sucker for full Multiglam!). I like that they’re available in a couple of mainstream camouflage options because this makes them more usable for airsofters. They’re available in sizes S to 4XL so the size range is really inclusive! I have the size S and they were a good fit and adjusted easily to fit my body but due to the baggy design gave me a lot of room for movement. Finally, what about price? The trousers retail for $99.95 from Valken themselves (which at the current exchange rate is around £76) which honestly? I feel is a little bit pricey for the average airsofter but it is important to remember that these pants are primarily designed as paintball uniforms so because of the extra level of protection they will be a little more expensive.

PIG FULL DEXTERITY TACTICAL (FDT) - DELTA UTILITY GLOVE REVIEW!

Hey everyone!

So today I'm back with another review and this is one specifically for the ladies! When I was in the States I got the chance to test the PIG full dexterity tactical (FDT) Delta Utility glove which is a slip-on tactical glove, that is a hybrid of the most popular features from the past PIG models in a budget option that still gives the user a high-dexterity fit. I used these gloves for all of my airsoft games/MilSims whilst I was stateside and they fit SO well! Now I'm back in the UK I've purchased a pair for me to wear for my airsoft games back home and I thought I'd give you lovely lot the low down on them.



The gloves, although small and a seemingly ordinary pair of gloves boast a bunch of awesome features including: touchscreen compatible forefinger and thumb (perfect for those of us who are partial to a midgame selfie!), 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.

Although it may be obvious, what I love the most about these gloves is how they fit! I adore how dainty and ladylike they make my hands look! 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. In the states I did wear an XS but I couldn't find them online on my return so I opted for the S - there is a difference in size but not by a huge amount. Although the exchange rate in the states makes them cheaper to buy out there, shipping is a killer! They are available from Tactical Kit for £30.95 here!
