Velcro = snipers worst enemy. Should be buckles or snaps across the board. All mags should be placed on your off set hand and never on the same side of a holster. Could use a better holster. Should not double stack pouches due to positioning yourself when prone. Better off with a small hydration pouch on back then that large side pouch which leads to a better h-Harness shoulder system. You want smaller pouches/softer filled on your backside for positioning as well and in case you fall and don't damage your tail bone and screw up your back. No coms? Lots of changes I would make to that setup. Bet if they called that video ultimate its going to get slammed just for using that word. Setups are mission specific but that setup breached multiple sniper rules on gear setup.

I thought it a good promotion video but it is clear there is a huge difference between Airsoft game-play and real live fire...
I like the use of Velcro - I hear you loud and clear Whisp-tech, but in the not Airsoft world one can get away with this.


On another note: it always amaze me that on PC multiplayer games like Call of Duty it is the guys that ran around the most that gets the most points - yea sure he “died” 27 times but he did kill 25...eh wait a moment! In real war you get to die only once...

No you can't. It you are set as sniper/dmr in airsoft you don't want to bring attention to yourself the same way and don't want velcro (hook n loop) pouches let alone we are playing at closer distances then a real sniper and can be heard easier. Its one of the main things that bothers me about my kit and need to upgrade myself which is my pistol mag holders that have velcro (hook n loop) retention. Rest of my mag pouches are all open top with bungee or for example I have the upgraded smoke grenade pouches that have the velcro (hook n loop) silencer on it so that it only uses the buckles when needed. In fact it applies to everything unless you are in middle of a gun fight. Even for cqb. Velcro should only be used for permanent enclosed items (exp: plate carrier for the plates, retention for duty belts and battle belts, patches, hydration enclosure.........) as far as I am concerned or just for every day life where it don't matter.

As for gear setup I have seen a person fall while airsoft itself with improper gear on his back and right screwed up his tail bone and back and couldn't play for the rest of the year.

Just that video shows the issue with velcro. You showed that phone case well that would be a better quieter option. When he was using pistol and he loaded a new mag you hear it again. At least that holster had a buckle and a snap on it since many of those universal holsters have velcro. Which leads me to my next point having a better holster that is fitted like the cytacs I review on my channel. Also snipers many times will get into position and lay their pistol on the ground by their side in case some one is a hunter. You would not want to setup and then have to lay your pistol down and hear that velcro when obtaining it. Again there is a time and place for velcro hook n loop.

I totally agree about this in the airsoft scene - you have what 40m to 60m from your target?
In real live fire you are close at 100m...the sound of velcro is not a concern then.
The other thing...you will not be fidgeting with your gear when taking a shot and afterwards...well your rifle just shredded any silence and ripped the peace treatie to shreds so a little velcro noise is the least of your trouble 😜

If you are sniping in meters it would be roughly 76 - 121m - 250 - 400 feet depending on your rifle and rules of the field for your fps.

Sniper rifles in airsoft can be severly quiet. You can't hear my system and there is quieter ones now.

Real sniper rifles can be silenced.

Already stated in live fire don't matter but some environments when stealth and movement is a consideration you don't want velcro which could pertain too a cqb mission. For example what if you needed to grab your gps or map and you ripped that phone case open while in a building and such. As I have stated overall velcro is not a good thing for an operator.

Even my map pouch I would want designed depending on the circumstance. I am just not a big fan of velcro when it is not needed and there is a better solution.

so it will become very easy to be exposed if using the velcro closure.
