Gear priority help

Postby NeCtRiCkS » Sun Jan 05, 2014 10:54 am

Hello, guys.
I'm an Airsoft beginner and I have these gears: BDU, goggles and gloves.
I'll be a bit broken this year, so which of the following should I buy first?
* US$ ~45 MOLLE vest;
* US$ ~35 Fast Type-B helmet;
* US$ ~50 AirStep mid-boots (same brand used by one of Brazil's best spec ops).

PS: I'm currently using bulky Globe Shoes as my boots. The problem is they're a bit slippery (skateboarding shoes).
PS2: I'll be using my friend's fastmags while I don't have a vest.

Thank you guys. Take care :}

Of the list you provided, I would recommend prioritizing it as:

1.) Boots
2.) Vest
3.) Helmet

Reasoning: Having a pair of comfortable reliable boots will help prevent injuries. Safety is, in my opinion, the most important thing to consider when getting gear for airsoft. The helmet is in last place because it really doesn't serve any purpose in airsoft other than to look operator.

I'd recommend adding a hydration carrier to your list. Having water on the field is invaluable, especially when the weather is hot.

^^^^ very good advice for the stability and safety for the boots.
as for the water I'd go so far as to put the hydropack above the helmet, I've been dehydrated while playing and it is not good.
