What to wear to play airsoft to stay protected and undercover

When beginning your airsoft hobby journey, there are a lot of questions to be asked about a number of things! What should I wear to an airsoft game? Do I need to bring necessities such as food and drink? What personal health and safety equipment do I need to provide? There are a lot of things to consider! 

In this week’s blog, we will be covering all the details you need to take on board as a first time airsofter! We have you covered.

 

What to wear!

If you are an airsoft beginner, and pondering on what to wear to your first game, then there are a few things to think about. 

During the game, you are active, running, squatting, hiding out, rolling to shelter, doing whatever it takes to take cover and avoid elimination from the opposition. For your first game, we recommend comfortable, moveable and breathable pants to move about in, a long sleeve top and even a hoodie to add a little padding and warmth, but still keep it movable. 

Yorkshire Tactical Activities sites are based outdoors in the cold Yorkshire air, so consider the cold in the atmosphere and maybe enter the game in layers that can be removed when you work up a sweat as you get moving. 

As you are moving about in forests and muddy land, you will need comfortable shoes you can be active in and that will support your feet, as well as shoes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty in the mud.

 

Body Safety

It’s no secret that airsoft can be a bit painful, but this factor usually is based on your own pain tolerance and your protective bodily gear, either way, you will still feel a hit! 

If you are wearing less protective gear, the airsoft shot will feel like a tight pinch or a quick bee sting. However, if you are more padded up you will feel a hard poke but the stinging element may be lessened. 

Here at YTA, safety is our number one priority! All of our airsoft games are monitored with a high level of health and safety. For all soldiers, we provide a range of tactical gear, including a full protective mask, all of our weapons are checked after each game to ensure there are no live rounds in the chamber, our safety zones are a NO dry firing zone, every game begins with a full health and safety briefs and fully first aid trained marshalls. 

Airsoft Camo

If you follow us on Instagram and Facebook, you will see that we love to reshare our customers’ airsoft looks! The more you discover airsoft and become a strong part of the community, the more serious you take this war-simulated game the more you will invest in gear to better your chances of success on the frontline. 

This gear may be new camouflage gear, such as hats, jackets etc. covered in leafing to mimic the floor of the forest, to better your hiding spots and seek protection from the opposing fires. You may also begin to invest in higher-performing equipment, such as new airsoft guns to bring to your games to have a better opportunity of being victorious.

You can also accessorise to your personal style with velcro patches, making statements with quirky quotes and designs that make your airsoft kit stand out!
