I’ve been wearing a pair of the 5.11 Taclite Coyote 8” boots in the field, and out of it, over the past weeks. These boots where made to perform in high heat environments such as the one I have been encountering these past months with temperatures that range from 29 degree Celsius ( 84.2 degree Fahrenheit) up to 41 degree Celsius ( 105.8 degree Fahrenheit).
The idea of having a tactical foldable backpack that can also be used as a waist pack is quite interesting and innovative too. The eAiming Foldable Backpack is kind of a transformer backpack which is really cool and it is available in 5 colors: Dark Earth, Black, Ranger Grey, OD and Multicam.
So far I had only seen a solution that had some MOLLE and converted from a small bag that needed to be attached to a belt, which was smaller in size and had 500 Cordura Denier which is lighter but less durable.
I don’t know about you, but tactical gloves are the item on my loadout that I have to renew with more frequency. This is because of the beating they take on the field, gloves are the primary point of contact with your gun and accessories, and with the unforgiving environment around you.
Having PTS MOE furniture is great, but rail space is very limited, even with the PTS MOE Rail System, you’ll always be more limited as for the number and type of attachments you can place in your handguard. So if you want to have a generous Rail space, the alternative is to go for a Rail System Handguard.
Not only is reviewing an EBB a first for me, but this is also my first contact with the APS brand, which, until a couple of months ago, I didn’t realize they existed. APS stands for Accuracy Pneumatics Shooting, and APS is company from Hong Kong which interestingly enough also created the Hades Arrow mortar, which I had already the opportunity to review here at PA.
The TDU, or Tactical Dress Uniform (TDU) pants from 5.11 are the new standard and the replacement for the old BDU's (Battle Dress Uniforms). This consists of a series of improvements made with direct feedback from law enforcement and special operations teams in the field, who made design change suggestions and wear testing. The result is so good that when questioned some of these professionals refused to go back using the classic BDUs.
This chronograph video review is an update of the Union Force Company (UFC) Chrono that was reviewed before. The Evike Advanced Compact Airsoft Computer Chronograph II is identical to the UFC in form and function except for the new lipo battery. The UFC and Big Dragon chrono's reviewed previously were all powered with NiCad or NiMh packs.
Flashlights in Airsoft serve any of four purposes: you want the cool factor of having a realistic looking AEG with all the accessories you see on real steel; or you want to play at night; or you want the extra edge to flash your opponent temporarily blind; or you are in Law Enforcement or Armed Forces and want to train with a similar setup you use at work.
You might have noticed that in my previous reviews as posted here at Popular Airsoft, I’ve been trying out the ITW Military FastMags, to see how they cut it in Airsoft. These plastic magazine carriers are a great and innovative concept that holds the mags safely and allows faster access and reload.
Airsoft games don’t have to be the same routine every time. Team Death Match, Capture The Flag, are often the most played scenarios. So innovation is also needed to improve gameplay on the field. You see more and more teams and organizations improving their games and events with helicopters, tanks, jeeps and the like. But how many times did you have the chance to use or even control one of these?
