Ok, I bought everything and they're on their way! Ill be sure to post pics when they get here. And I also decided to go with the G&G M4 plastica and a box of 8 MAG midcaps. As for hydration, I dont know what to do... The vest doesn't have any MOLLE... Any way I could put on a CamelBak type thing and the vest?

For Texas weather, skip the helmet and get a patrol cap or a boonie. . . or even a shemagh.

One major item you forgot (whether to list or purchase). . . hydration. How are you planning on keeping yourself hydrated while on the field?

Also, look into getting extra magazines. Otherwise, it looks like you're ready to roll.

Hydration is mandatory.

Looking through this thread might help with anything you think you've missed:

Yeah, I got a boonie instead.

What do ya'll recomend for hydration, since my vest doesnt have any place for a hydration system? Is there any way I could wear a hydration system while wearing my vest without it being awkward and uncomfortable?

Your belt is ALICE clip compatible, I recommend getting two of each.

If your camelback has straps you can just wear it like a backpack over the LBV. Even if you didn't have the one with straps they have rings so you can clip it or tie onto your vest. Canteens work just as well though. I would at least have two. The one nice thing about a Camelbak is you can carry more water. Depending on the model you get some have additional storage compartments that can be handy for additional stuff especially in for activities other than airsoft like if you go camping/hiking etc...

I use a LBV as my secondary loadout and it works fine. You can carry a full combat load plus you have the grenade pouches and such. I have an issued camelback that i rig up thru the straps and anchor it to my LBV. No one loadout is better than the other, it just depends on your style. But definitely get a camelback.

Hey, you have my old loadout! Very cool. I would recommend a regular non-molle camelback for you. I have one like that and it works great with that loadout.
