Hey everyone! 
I see a lot of questions on Airsoft Community forums for a 'MilSim checklist' so I decided to put together list of kit that I would recommend for a 24+ hour Op, obviously this isn't an exhaustive list but it does give those of you who aren't familiar with MilSim play an idea of what kit to bring! 

  • Camo for your respective side
  • Thermal layers
  • Waterproof layer
  • Outer layer such as softshell (even better if it's waterproof too!)
  • Spare dry clothes
  • Socks
  • Underwear (sports bra for the ladies!)
  • Waterproof boots that support the ankle
  • Gloves
  • Hat (beanie or cap, beanies are particularly nice at night!)
  • Scarf/snood
Personal Hygiene
  • Tooth brush and toothpaste
  • Foot powder (Mycota powder is antibacterial!)
  • Baby wipes
  • Toilet paper
  • Miscellar water and cotton wool (to keep your fresh clean and fresh)
  • Moisturiser 
  • Lip balm/vaseline
  • Femfresh feminine hygiene wipes
  • Antiperspirant
  •  Towel
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Basha
  • Bivi
  • Roll mat (a cot bed is much more comfy however!)

  1. Snacks for between (more substantial) meals. Maryland cookies in a nade pouch keeps my crankiness down.

    1. Ahhh yes of course! I forgot about tactical snacks! I usually carry wine gums and granola bars in my dangler to keep hunger at bay 👌🏻

  2. Hey you. I'm running a KTac head set with a Ptt to kenwood for the Boafeng. Can I wear a helmet over the headset
