Why a Tactical Vest

If I do not have any GBB pistol, and my 2 mags have 470 round and clip into each other (g36 mag). With 950 Bbs in my mags, you should be good for at least a complete round. So, what can we put in a Tactical Vest?

Instead of using high caps, use mid caps. That should fill up some space.

The primary purpose of a tactical vest is to carry extra mags. If you're using Hicaps you're short-circuiting that, so you could pretty much play in just a tshirt with a 1L canteen on your belt.

Of course, its a different kind of play as virtually all milsims and many other games will either not allow hicaps or frown upon them (for example the game in Drummondville this past weekend, which was real-cap loads only). Then again, you're talking about "being good for a complete round" which sounds like a skirmish, so I wouldn't worry about a tac vest unless its just for looks.

When you're out in the woods for a full day with only the stuff you're carrying on your person, your needs in terms of gear become a lot clearer.

Why wear a bulky vest if you have nothing on it? You shouldn't be looking for things to "fill out" your loadout unnecessarily. Just carry what you're going to need or might need, if you can do that without adding a hot, awkward vest then more power to you.

Just get a coondor chest rig. It looks great, and it can hold lots of stuff without being bulky.

maybe a little protection? were all suppose to be shooting for centre mass, and eating a bb off your nipple sucks monkey balls...

I run a hicap too, but
I carry a small first aid kit, a red hit rag,a swiss army knife, and a cigar in a cigar tube with one or 2 mags just in case...

another thing you might want to do is keep different weight bbs in different mags, like one mag just for .20 and another mag for .28s so if you see someone far, or if theres a bunch of foliage in the way of your target you can rip through most of it...

Make that 0.28g and 0.30g.......... even 0.25g are difficult to use outdoors at times, the 0.30g will give extra range and penetration at little loss to velocity over 0.28g.

If you plan to play anything more than skrimishes, especially during the summer, you're going to need a vest just to carry all the water and food you're going to need.

Playing casual games, but away from any real civilization (no stores/houses to get water or food at) I went through 5L of water. If you have space to carry stuff you can also be an asset to your team.

A buddy said it best;

High caps are like training wheels for Airsoft NFG's

Also people who get pinned down by morons cranking their mags while they have the finger on the trigger...An M4 is NOT a support weapon!

Thank everybody for your's answer ! SuperCriollo gave az good ides: Chest Rig... About the interesting post of Drake, i know about these game, witch i cant play because i dont have any low-cap; i'm more Skirmish than MilSim but im going to Dark Strike Of Hanois in august. In the night. So i think it's gonna be 4 pouch 4 Monster Energy Drink. Lol.

But seriously i think the final answer (counting you all) would be: For skirmish game, it's not very important (A little bit for Kill Rag) but for long-period game: water, bag of bb and Radios.

Also, lowcap, midcap or hicap is not the big thing to consider, it's how you play. Im not the kind of guy to put my gun in auto and shot as i reload. I'll shot all my round, stop, reload and then start again. Goal: Being as fast of low-cap people. It's not because i have all your 9 mag in one single mag that im better or worse...
