I not only use tactical gear for paintball games, I also use them when I travel or go on adventure hikes. Believe me when I tell you that they can sure take a beating. Tactical gear is not only used by the military. It is also used by the police and other law enforcement agencies.
Reliable and tough law enforcement gear is crucial in helping ensure that missions go as planned, lives of officers and civilians are not put at risk and overall ownership cost is kept to a minimum. For this to happen, law enforcement gear and similar tactical gear are made to very demanding requirements. This would explain why law enforcement gear and other such equipment cost higher than the usual gear we find on the shelves.
Granted, for normal paintball sessions, tactical equipment might be considered overkill. However, for those who take part in long play or overnight paintball games, this type of gear might be just what the doctor ordered. They are tough, last a really long time and is quite easy to maintain.
Tactical Holsters and Slings
If you are going to carrying around a couple of paintball markers for 10 to 12 hours, including food and paintball ammo, it would probably be a good idea to have a holster and sling for your paintball markers.
Most tactical holsters and slings are fully adjustable and are designed to fit most markers. You can choose from different type of tactical holsters and tactical slings. Some may prefer drop leg holsters and some might prefer shoulder holsters. Even for shoulder holsters, you have the choice of vertical holsters or horizontal holsters.
For slings, you can select from adjustable 2 point and 3 point slings. Personally, I prefer padded 3 point slings. Some prefer non-padded slings because they are easier to dry when they get wet.
Backpack With Hydration System
For long paintball sessions, a good tactical backpack with a hydration system on board is a must. The backpack should contain lots of storage space to carry paintball refills, sustenance, and a first aid kit. If your paintball session is going to last through the night, you might want to ensure you can stack a sleeping bag somewhere on the backpack.
Although some military backpacks come with a laptop pouch which you can stack at the top of the backpack, I do not recommend you bring a laptop along. I am sure you can go without Facebook for 12 hours or so without any withdrawal symptom showing.
When getting a backpack, make sure you get one that suits your size. Getting one that is too big might make it hard for you to maneuver and cause you to easily lose your balance.
