Gorka is the canvas hard shell, it is windproof and to a certain extent waterproof but it's really hard to dry it out when it gets wet. Plus the temperature may also raise higher than 25C and you will then get roasted. There are a lot of modern lightweight and fast drying clothes that will retain wa...

+1 to RGD2 - a good idea to check out for better contact lenses. I wear lenses during last 18 years, forgot what does correctional glasses mean. My current choice is Ocular Sciences Biomedics 55 Evolution or Bausch & Lomb Pure Vision HD - for up to one month night and day. Certainly everything is st...

What REAL valuables can be with a player aside from his ingame gear - a wallet with ID and some cash/cards and a mobile phone. Both items can be easily carried through all the game in pockets being secured with ALOKSAKs and dummy cords. The rest is valuable to a certain extent, but still can be sacr...

Used the Telia Kontant card last year. Ordered the 9SEK/day unlim Internet option, used it in my smartphone, had no problem with Google Maps, Web, Skype in the entire game area. Saved the card for this year, it is still valid.

You may also try using any suitable long (40-50 cm) non-folding antenna (tons of them are on Ebay, e.g. here ) and to move it to your back with this relocation cable: http://www.tacticalcommandstore.com/m-a-s-t.aspx If you get one of those babies in the right Mhz/Frequencies, you might as well keep...

The system takes near to no place on the backpack, allows to avoid humidity and insects and is real...

Plastic boxes like those served by airlines on board. Some kind of meat and a side dish. Hot and solid. In addition to (or instead of) the prepaid food you can always grab a decent burger+fries+soda for 7-10 Euro at the kiosk located at any base (prepaid food is also distributed through these kiosks...

We had well balanced game in terms of walking and contacts, as much as it possible for Rangers unit.

Pavel_Moscow, in a couple of weeks there will be a good game near Moscow, called The Black Envy, due to its format sure you will enjoy enough frags there.

Second to Os - an armband that does not surround an arm impairs a friend or foe identification. But it's a good idea to attach a square inch of hook velcro to the inner side of the regular armband - this will prevent it from rolling or sliding down the sleeve even it is loose.

Where is this 'no gear inside the tent' coming from? I've been to B7 and B8 and we have always kept our gear inside, and we have always seen other people do it too.
