Where could I buy my MARPAT gear in bulk?

Hi guys! Well im new to airsoft and me and some friend want to equip us to play the sport. We want to have woodland MARPAT. I just wanted to know where I could buy MARPAT bdu in bulk (4 or 5 uniforms) so we could save money. Also, i don't want to buy the real thing that cost 80$ the trousers. I don't care if we have replica. But are replica of lowest quality? What are the best manufacturer of Marpat Clothing? I heard of Propper and Truspec, are there any other manufacturer?

Also, we play a lot of STALKER and russian/east bloc scenarios. Do you think guys that I could play with a gasmask or the lens could broke with a BB impact?

There are ballistic rated gas masks, but they can cost $150+ for just the mask, but then again: Think of your eyes. You only have two.

You get real surplused real/issue MarPat for a lot cheaper than $80 for trousers; look on eBay, you can get a full set for about $50 (trousers and shirt). "Real" MarPat MCCUUs are made by Proper Int'l, American Power Source, E.A. Industries and American Apparel. Only Proper has civilian sale items. TruSpec is decent quality but isn't "issue."

MCCUUs are made slightly "long", so if you're usually in between Medium Short and Medium Regular, get Medium Short or it'll be too long. That's for issue stuff, for repros, who knows.

On ebay I found a seller who sells MARPAT, It's issue stuff but it's 170$ for pants and shirt the sellers name is Devil Dog Depot.

Does Army Issue get/have Marine MARPAT?

BDU.com has Marpat also. Good prices.

Some always pops up here on the boards too. 170 for a set of issue seems way too much. I think it ended up being either 80 or 100 for me for a set of propper MARPAT in new condition.

"Issue MarPat" would have probably been more accurate.

Either way, keep looking on eBay, it comes up every so often, usually in batches. The $80 stuff is new/unissued; for used you should be able to find the top and bottom for under $100.

Try USMCblues, too; they have used stuff sometimes.

Otherwise get the Proper ones, you can find em for about the same price in Canada (~$45/piece) and they're the same as the issue stuff except they aren't NIR compliant.
