CQB Loadout (outfit)

Almost everything I wore for my first CQB experience was Matt’s. A lot of it didn’t fit quite right, but it did the job. For the bottoms, I actually had on 2 pairs of leggings, skinny-jeans and camo pants. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I wasn’t expecting to have those camo pants. Either way though, I wanted to try to be as padded as possible and for the most part, it worked. My mobility wasn’t limited and the skinny-jeans I had on were super stretchy so it didn’t feel like my legs were being squeezed to death. Like I said, I wasn’t counting on wearing the camo pants, but Matt let me wear them (and keep them!), and they were a nice extra barrier between me and the BB’s. Heat wise, it wasn’t terrible.

It’s just a black vest, with all the pouches pre-attached and set up. This vest was really nice. It was light-weight and mesh, so, super breathable.

I would highly recommend wearing a pair of gloves that fit you. It wasn’t terrible, but when it came to having to switch out my mags, it was kinda a nightmare. Again, even though I was all layered up, I didn’t get too hot or feel like I was burning up. My head gear was the only thing that gave me a hard time most of the night. Starting out, I was wearing...
