PRACTACSYS: AKU Pilgrim High Leg Boots – used & abused

Practical Tactical Systems (Practacsys) came into being as the direct result of a group of like-minded people, who had banded together before on numerous specialist projects, deciding to bring a new kind of news and reviews website to the international tactical community.

Our friends at PracTacSys are professionals from diverse areas of the tactical and firearms industries, including those from the manufacturing side and those who are active operationally on a daily basis.  Together, their aim is to personally use, abuse, trial and evaluate over time and then report as objectively as possible on their findings and impressions.


They recently reported on their findings after stomping and yomping around in a pair of AKU’s Pilgrim High Leg Boots.  These boots are available in Black, Forest / MTP Brown and Desert Biege.  Check out the full report on PracTacSys.

Introducing SCDTV – our new airsoft content partner

You might have noticed that its been a while since we’ve posted any reviews of airsoft guns – or even gone up-close-and-personal with much airsoft-related gear either for that matter.  There are several reasons for this – but I won’t bore you with the details… Suffice it to say, things are gonna change now – and how! 

Browse the web these days and it quickly becomes apparent that there at least a million “experts” out there who fancy themselves to be qualified reviewers of airsoft guns – many of whom seem to barely know which end of the gun gets pointed at the enemy team…  On the other hand, you can pick up a copy of one of the high-quality airsoft magazines out there are read some good written reviews of airsoft guns – some of which go into way too much technical nitty-gritty for the average ‘gung-ho’ skirmisher…

scdtv_BLACKOn the other hand, the guys from SCDTV strike a nice happy balance between the level of technical detail and the user’s skirmish-field perspective – and they do it all through the medium of slickly-produced and entertaining videos.  The fact that they hail from Poland and English is not their first language makes there videos all the more interesting.  At any rate, I like what they do and how they do it – and I hope that you will too.

SCDTV have their own YouTube Channel, Facebook page, and website too.  Here’s an example of their handiwork to get things started, their review of the BO Dynamics Custom Recon AEG:
