Another Way To Carry Your Gear To Airsoft Events:

If you saw my last post (click HERE to see all the gear I bring to an airsoft event), you'll know that I always like to carry my gear in a few bags to keep myself and it safe.

Today, we look at another bag.  This is the DEFCON War Dog AEG Gun Rifle Bag (CLICK on the name to see it over at - our supporter for this post and a generous supporter of CQB Radio.).  Now while this bag is capable to holding an M4, an MP5, or other AEGs, I am using it carry my gear.  I leave out my chest rig and I store by AEG in a Condor Rifle Bag, but everything else goes into this bag.

So here's a look at the DEFCON bag all packed up with my canteen attached to the outside.  

And here are some specs on the bag:
- A link to the bag on the DEFCON site is HERE
- Size: 22x7 or 34x7 (when expanded)
- Pockets hold 3 AK mags or 6 MP5 mags and many other mags of course
- MOLLE all over
- Sling can be adjusted to both sides
- And much on

Here's a look inside.  Yup, a large main compartment and then smaller mesh pockets (with zips) inside the main compartment.

The strap has a clip to hold keys or other gear.  And yes, another pocket inside the main section.

Now one of the cool things about this bag is that you can unzip the top section to expand out the bag to hold more gear or your AEG.

Here's a look at it with the sling out of the way.

And here's what the sling looks like.  Cool feature - you can attach it to either side of the bag at the bottom depending on how you like to roll.

Tuck the unused sling attachment into the pocket at the base of the bag.

Told you - molle all over.  And a spot for a patch on the back of the bag.

Looking at the top - more patch space.

Here it is from the side.  This thing held ALL the gear that the VISM bag (from my last post) held.  And it's comfortable to carry.

Slick bag - and you get it in tan as well.  Again, here's the link (CLICK HERE).
Over the last 2 posts you've seen 2 ways to carry your gear to ops.  One more coming soon!

What To Bring To an Airsoft Game: VISM Competition Range Bag by NcSTAR

So I talked to Airsplat about putting together a series of posts about what you can/should pack for an airsoft game.  In this post, I'll show you what I bring and also how I take it to the event.  You'll see that I use a few different bags/transport options for my gear but let me emphasize that you MUST BE SAFE!  Carry your airsoft gun IN A BAG.  It's dangerous for you and bad for airsoft if you don't.  (Ok - rant ended).   Let's get on with this post.

You'll need a gun.  Here's my AEG with some mags and then my secondary with a mag.  I carry them in a Condor 42-inch gun bag.  This thing holds my primary (it can hold two M4s pretty easily) and my secondary (it can hold 2-4 easily).  It also has 3 detachable pouches on the front to hold mags, green gas, etc.  Lots of space - it's keeps you and your AEG safe.

Next up, I've got my rig.  Pouches for mags and all kinds of other accessories.  I've got a dead rag, a bandana to wipe off sweat or to clean my goggles, and also a tactical 'scarf' of sorts. Knee and elbow pads are nice to have as well, and of course, BBs. (Click HERE for options when it comes to vests, chest rigs, etc.)  


BDU is next (Click HERE for BDU options).  I come to ops in sweat pants or something like that, and then I change into my BDU.  Boots with socks (and an extra pair is nice to change into at the end of the day).  Water canteen (Camelbacks are good as well).  Gloves, sling, speed loader, and some batteries too (yup - I like the old school kind).  Lastly, I've got a bag of stuff for cleaning and lubing guns.  (My preferred weight BBs can be located HERE).

A hat and eye pro are next.  I've also got a chrono - not needed but a nice addition.  I use a headset for comms connected to my radio.  Airsoft Innovations grenade and a charger round out this photo (green gas needed FYI).

And here's what it looks like.  Between the Condor bag and this VISM Competition Range Bag from NcSTAR, I basically carry all my gear.  

Here's a few pics of how I organize my bag.

The bag will run you $40 over at Airsplat. I like it a lot.  It has molle all over to attach some additional pouches, and I like the gray color a ton.

Lots of room inside as you can see.  Pockets on the front and back as well as side pockets.

So there you have it. One way to organize and carry your gear to an airsoft event.  Check out this bag by clicking HERE.  Thanks to Airsplat for helping support this review.
