MULTICAM BLACK X BLACK!

Hey friends!


Welcome back to the blog! Today I have another set-up post for you, in this blog, we'll be looking at my MultiCam Black X Black loadout that I'm particularly keen on for CQB in the winter!


For the helmet, I'm running the Team Wendy EXFIL LTP in Black. The EXFIL LTP is a lightweight polymer bump helmet that gives great impact protection and a stable, comfortable platform for mounting night-vision devices (and other accessories). It features a built-in NVG shroud, a Zorbium foam liner along with a CAM FIT Retention System that has easily adjustable Cam Lock sliders, and a micro-adjustable BOA Fit System. I've tried a lot of different helmets in my time, from my very first Nuprol FAST helmet to an FMA Airframe and my most recent PTS MTEK FLUX. The Team Wendy EXFIL LTP is by far the most expensive helmet I've used during my time airsofting, but it is also the most comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and the protection it offers is second to none.




I've accessorised it with the TW EXFIL Carbon & LTP 2.0 Rails and the TW EXFIL Peltor Headset Adapters which hold my Howard Leight Honeywell Impact Sport headset which I use for comms and hearing protection. As I haven't yet scored an affordable set of Peltors, I had to do a little bit of jimmying to get these off their band and to fit on the Peltor mounts, they are by no means perfect (they pop off from time to time) but they work whilst I'm still on the lookout for a set of Peltors.


I have the EXFIL LTP in black but as I run mostly green kit I have the EXFIL LTP Rail 2.0 Ranger Green Cover to match it to my BDU and to give it some texture - I'm not a fan of smooth, shiny helmets (that innuendo). To help offset the weight of my Night-Vision, I have the EXFIL Counterweight Kit in Black, of which I'm currently using 2 of the lead weights included in the kit.

To accessorise the cover, I have a Mantra Strobe which has a red light function and an IR light function - this is super helpful during night ops - using the red light to signify being a dead player and using the IR to help teammates with NV know where I am. We love a patch or two so I've added the Afraid Of The Dark Gucci patch and an Afraid Of The Dark 'Gang Shit' patch.



For my chest rig, I'm wearing the VX Buckle Up Utility Rig from Viper with an OPS Modular Fanny Pocket. This rig closely resembles the Spiritus Systems MK4. It works in a modular system with the VX range of inserts to suit your weapon magazines in the main pouch that is located at the rear of the rig to completely customise your rig to your playing needs. Both compartments are Velcro-lined to be used with these inserts too and the front lid is removable for easy access to inserts placed in the front compartment. It has front and rear Velcro ID panels that are quite sizeable meaning plenty of spaces for patches or adding extra VX inserts/holsters. It is also VX Buckle Up compatible meaning it can be used with the new VX plate carrier and has quick-release buckles throughout. 


The rig is completely adjustable via the sizing adjustment side and shoulder straps and ‘fits most’. I found it was easy to adjust and fit my frame well on one of the smallest strap configurations. For this set-up, I'm using the 9mm SMG inserts and I've utilised the half flap too which I picked up for around £9 on Amazon! Bargain!


For my pack, I'm using the VX Charger Pack in place of the straps that are supplied with the VX Buckle Up Chest rig. This gives my back more protection from BBs, especially when playing indoors, and allows me to carry equipment into the field - including BBs, speed loaders, a water bladder on hot game days, etc which in turn can help balance out the weight of the CR when it’s fully loaded up! 


For my belt, I'm using the MultiCam Black Cobra Belt from the Deadly Customs Belt Builder that is made from 2″ MilSpec webbing which is rated up to 5500lbs. The webbing is doubled up, giving it a dual-layer construction making it one of the strongest in the UK, so it won't roll when you take out a mag. It also features a genuine 50mm AustriaAlpin Cobra Buckle that is rated for 2000lbs! It's super comfortable and has an inner belt with loop Velcro. 


As this is a CQB set-up, I've kept my belt build lightweight and slick. I have a Deadly Customs DC4 Olight Holster in grey for my pistol. This holster uses the torch for retention so it's perfect when you want to use it with more than one pistol. You can adjust the fit of the holster by adjusting the screws on the side of the holster. To attach it to the belt I've mounted it on a Safariland QLS on a mid-ride with a thigh strap.


 I have also accessorised the belt with a 40mm grenade holster, an M4 5.56 Shooters Style Magazine Holster and 2 Glock Shooters Style Magazine Holsters all from Deadly Customs!
