Gear from

Have been looking into this Hong Kong retailer that sells BDU's and gear for pretty cheap.

From what I've read so far online the quality of the gear itself isn't bad. But I'd like to know if any of you have any personal experience with purchases from this website. As a noobie who is buying for MilSim games, and spent way too much money his gun, I'm looking for something cheap that will last me until I join a team and/or have enough money to buy real gear.

Hopefully you guys have some feedback on the quality of this stuff so myself or other people know whether to stay away or not.

Here are a couple of pictures with links as to what I'm thinking of getting.

I have ordered from them twice now, the first time, everything was awesome (though it takes a long time to get to you). the 2nd time I ordered I didnt get my drop leg mag holder, it was on the site in stock, but I never got it, this was rectified easily enough with a few emails, and the offered me any item of the same value freely shipped.

I continue to buy from them, as does my whole team without any issues.
my gear is like 4 years old and is still in awesome condition, overall quality is good

hope this helps

Personally, I would order from, just because I trust their customer service and communications a bit more. I haven't ordered from Airsoft-Club, but from what it seems, they're a pretty good retailer too. It's just that, like with all HK or Chinese retailers, their shipping to Canada will cost a small fortune.

Also, is it just me, or does that CADPAT look a little too green...? I know it's a green-dominant camo, but I feel like there's just not enough brown on there.

I have ordered from both places. Not so much from A-club on the count of they charge for shipping. Both places basically have the same products. More often than not A-club will come out more expensive.
I have purchased alot of stuff from A-park and have yet to be dissapointed. Shipping time is usually 3-4 weeks which isn't bad.
Apark has the same cadpat uniform that A-club has. My brother and I each ordered a set last summer. Decent quality for the price.

airsoft-club will get your stuff to you, there's few issues... a couple guys have had back order problems but I've made 3-4 orders no problem.

The quality of gear is pretty bad, the water carrier I ordered has 2 different length molle straps and they none of the stitching is square/straight. The straps are positioned off center as well so it doesn't line up properly on my vest.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.

I ordered from them. The quality of the stuff is okay. The BDU's are decent, but if you're a skinny guy like me, you'll want to get them fitted a little better so they don't catch on stuff, provide a smaller area for water to absorb, and provide a slimmer profile.

The buckles and straps on those cheaper vests are smaller and thinner than high end stuff. This means the buckles may come undone under stress and the vest may need re-adjustments to stay fitted over multiple uses. Proper fitment and organization of MOLLE articles helps reduce the frequency of buckles coming undone.

airsoftpark has free shipping on most items. I havent purchased from Aclub. But Apark is definitley worth checking out. Their prices might be a bit more but free shipping keeps them under most competitors.
I own you bum! I've got money for days!
