Review: Danner Melee 8-Inch In Multicam

M17

Being such a Multicam addict I couldn’t resist the opportunity to review the new Danner Melee in, that’s right, Multicam! Since I am the proud owner of a pair of the TFX Rough-Out GTX in A-TACS, I have some very high expectations for these boots in terms of comfort and durability.

So let’s see exactly how the Danner Melee boots stack up!

Review: WE XDM Compact 3.8 Short GBB Pistol

Just like its big brother XD-M, reviewed here in its Airsoft version by Moondog, the XD-M Compact belongs to the XD-M family from Springfiled Armory USA. These show an evolution of theirXD line of products which, as just acknowledged by Springfield and noted on Moondog’s video review, draws inspiration in a number of other popular guns but is presented in a very well finished and innovative package.

The XD-M Compact is of course noticeably smaller and more compact than most .45 ACP caliber guns. It also carried its frame from the XD-M with slightly modified contours and its purpose is to offer a compact and light weapon, easy to carry and conceal, with just about the same features and ergonomics that are present on the XD-M.

The Airsoft version is very faithful to the real steel, and its aesthetics makes it indeed a very remarkable and unique gun produced by WE.

I would like to thank Robert from CWI Airsoft for making this review possible.

Review: Smith Optics Elite AEGIS Arc Multicam

Eye protection in Airsoft is critical. Without it you’ll risk losing your valuable and vital eyesight. The worst accident that can happen in Airsoft is not breaking an arm or a tooth, but rather losing an eye due to inexistent or poor eye shields. So an eye shield should be your very second purchase, right after you bought yourself an Airsoft gun.

Of course just like buying an Airsoft gun, you’ll notice there’s huge selection of eye protection that will range from goggles, sunglasses, glasses, masks, to mesh goggles.

Now if let’s think about each one for a while:

Goggles tend to fog up on winter and can become rather hot and bulky for summer (except in a sandstorm where they are extremely useful), even if you buy a good pair of goggles, they will always be rather large and cumbersome.

Sunglasses will be useless in low light environments, so you might have to buy a pair of protection or safety glasses with clear lenses, making you spend twice the money.

Some masks have integrated eye shields, but they mainly serve for CQB, since they’ll be hot in the summer and will surely fog up on winter unless they have some ventilation system.

Then, there’s mesh goggles, which as the urban airsoft legend says could cause a BB to shatter and fragments will slice and dice your eyeballs as they can go through the holes of the mesh mask…  Well perhaps not as dramatic as that, but we’ve all seen BBs shattering on impact on some surfaces when fired at close range, so I personally wont risk on this kind of protection cause you just never know…

Review: Emerson Fast BJ Multicam Helmet

Now this review is very important for any Airsofter out there, since safety should come first!

Helmets in Airsoft can do a lot more than just make you look good on the field or completing your loadout to copy some military force to perfection. Security in Airsoft is sometimes downplayed to just a pair of safety glasses and that’s it. Usually problems arise when you least expect them, especially when you are playing at a venue or field you are not familiar with.

Perhaps one of the most viewed Airsoft accidents on Youtube is the one where a Spanish player falls from the ceiling of a one story house during a game. Luckily he walked away with no serious injuries, but you can imagine several ways how this could have gone wrong.

So protection is not only cool but it’s also a must, to prevent injuries while playing on the field.

With this in mind, let’s see how does the Emerson Fast BJ Helmet, kindly provided for this review byEmperion Store,  stacks up to needs of most Airsofters out there.

Review: A.S.I. Electric M4 Double Magazine

This is a very controversial item in Airsoft, but it was lots of fun to review:

Some hate them, some love ‘em. Unrealistic or awesome, hi-caps are surely controversial. So why have hi-caps? Heck, this is Airsoft and you are free to get one if you want and turn your M4 into a mean machine for suppression without having to buy a new AEG altogether. Of course you might not be…

JJ Airsoft Reflex Red Dot Sight Review

I never thought I would say this, but replica red dot sights are getting better and better every day. It seems that manufacturers have understood that Airsofters want better quality products that can are usable when out on the field practicing Airsoft. This is indeed one of the great benefits of this industry: high demand and rich offering often tend to make companies push forward with better and innovative products.

This time we’ll take a look at a very interesting red dot sight that JJ Airsoft have sent me.

It is their 1×24 Reflex Red Dot Sight which is based on the popular Trijicon Reflex RX06. The Trijicon Reflex was custom designed for the M4A1 as sold to the US Special Forces, so believe me when I say that this will surely be a most welcome addition to your SF kit!

Review: Mil-Tec A-TACS AU ACU Uniform

Mil-Tec is a brand of the German company Sturm. They are responsible not only for selling surplus to civilians but also for creating a wide variety of outdoor and military equipment and accessories.

One of their latest releases is the A-TACS AU ACU Uniform that is comprised of three parts: the pants, shirt and bonnie which are available through Military1st.

So if you, like me, never had any product from Mil-Tec, let’s see how it performs and why we should consider this brand for our Airsoft loadout.

I would like to thank Military1st for making this review possible.

Review: 5.11 Taclite 8” Coyote Boots

I’ve been wearing a pair of the 5.11 Taclite Coyote 8” boots in the field, and out of it, over the past weeks. These boots where made to  perform in high heat environments such as the one I have been encountering these past months with temperatures that range from 29 degree Celsius ( 84.2 degree Fahrenheit) up to 41 degree Celsius ( 105.8 degree Fahrenheit).

Usually, boots that are designed to operate under such intense heat are called desert boots, and they have to be breathable so that you don’t start blistering all over your feet.

After these weeks of training and abuse I have a pretty good idea on how the 5.11 Taclite Coyote perform with heat and sweat and help keep my feet ventilated. I would like to thank Nightgear.co.uk for setting me up with a pair of these great boots for the review.
