What's your set up?

Gearwise, what do you take with you when you are in the field, whether as a sniper or DM? I just can't get my self to take tons and tons of stuff with me to the field. Since I haven't got my gun yet (should be ordering today), I was thinking BDU's, Ghillie, Rifle rag, and cheek rest/mag holder. I'll then fill my pockets with sidearm, speedloader, and some other stuff, like a pocket knife, and radio.

EDIT: Also, binocs, and a little screwdriver kit.

Essential : Spare mags, pouches for said mags, sidearm + holster, belt for all of these and a radio if required. And also a camelback if it is hot. For a DMR loadout though I'd use a light molle vest. Then apparel wise - Goggles - obviously, balaclava etc., camo BDU's or ghillie, boots (Hiking boots or even wellies),gloves (Not essential) and maybe a boonie hat. Easy loadouts. Never bring out too much gear as your back will regret it. :)
I recently rebuilt my DM load out (M14 AEG) to be minimal. I didn't want anything I wouldn't use to come with me. I used it at an Op last weekend and I loved it.

- Hydration carrier with 3L Camelbak bladder. For me an absolute must have.
- Admin pouch with utility kit inside, and foamed suppressor for 1911.
- Utility kit: scissors, folding knife, band aids, tape, sharpies, screw drivers, flash light, etc.
- 6x 7.62 open top pouches.
- 2x double pistol mag pouches to hold 8 single stack 1911 mags.
- Medium utility pouch for batteries, snacks, and extra socks.
- 1x M4 single pouch for large M4 mag sized speed loader.
- HHR pouch with radio and throat mic.
- Drop leg 1911 serpa holster.
- Tan Propper tactical trousers.
- Black BDU jacket in the cold, black team shirt in the heat.
- Shemag depending on weather.
- Black balaclava, tan hat, tan gloves.
- Mesh face mask because I had a tooth shot out before.
- ESS NVG goggles.

The Op lasted about 8 hours and I used everything at least once, and never needed anything I didn't have.

I am very minimalist...

-44 rounds ammunition total for BASR
-1 extra mag
-100 rounds ammunition total for sidearm
-Ghillie - includes balaclava, boonie, etc.
-Canteen/camelback - camelbacks can get uncomfortable, and if I'll be in a hide for a while, I'll take a canteen
-Radio+throat mic
-rubber bands for veg
-knife, for cutting veg

That'll usually last me for the ops up here in AK, the long ones that I've been to are about 6-8 hours.

As far as gear goes I currently run a belt setup consisting of:

rubber knife ( I just tuck it in the belt, it's a rather large knife).
A sidearm that I carry in an m249 ammo pouch.
a couple of pistol mag pouches (for my extra pistol mag as well as VSR mags and speedloaders).
Camel back when it's hot out

For clothing I wear:

Bdu's, either woodland or tri color desert (depending on the season).
a boonie hat, or baseball cap (in tan).
condor recon rap.

I usually run with:

Eotech chest rig(I flip it to my back though)
Black hawk Serpa Holster
Snow Gear boots
Tasco binos
Tyscon radio
Hydro pack
and either .28's or .30's

I travel as light as I can being that airsoft usually is a fast paced game. It works pretty well for where I play.

Hey Sonofliberty, How is that TSD SD98? What range are you getting with .30's.

It is a great gun. I held it in a competition with my friends Mb06. Using .28's. Our accuracy was about equal up to 150 feet. Then when we passed that mark his were flying up, down and all around. Mine were traveling down the same line nearly every time.

I can get shots out to about 250 if I'm lucky, but 200 is my comfort zone.
I ordered one. Got tan. I am happy with the decision. But my previous ASR crapped out on me at about 700 shots. Hope that won't happen again.
