You guys have done a great job with your loadouts. CADPAT gear is not easy to find on this side of the Atlantic so I applaud your efforts.

On a somewhat ironic note, I've recently acquired a G&G AK5C and am seriously considering matching it with appropriate clothing and gear.

Anyways, great photos - keep 'em coming!

Your load out is great, but the dog is all wrong - you need to get yourselves a sled dog. LOL

BTW, I used to be on a team that did a Swedish impression. I miss the M90 camouflage.

From the many photos and videos I've seen from Sweden, it seems U.S. Woodland camo is a popular choice. It's a bit "old school" these days, but I've always believed Woodland was an ideal pattern for northern countries like Sweden and Canada.

One thing I've notice about Swedes is you generally don't mind wearing a U.S. flag on your kit. It's not that we have anything against Americans, but that's not something you typically see on Canadian airsoft fields. Just an observation.

Its acctualy more that milsim is very popular here in sweden, and alot of ppl take credit in keep their gear correct. Most aim for a sertain time period and build their kit around that. Hence why we wear the Canadian flag on our kits

I'm sure he means airsofters. Members of the Canadian Forces always display the national flag on their combat uniforms.

Yeah, thats what I thought... alittle on the slow side today, sorry about that.
I cant really say why it is that most swedes have the nation flag of the country they are doing an impression of, while in some countries its not.
