Spare batteries
A couple towels don't hurt

I also like to have a spare mask.

Some people (including me) have a full backup set up with them but this isn't necessary.

I put a bunch of pods in my bag, and put my squeegee, Allen keys (my gun only needs two), barrel cover, and I stuff my microfiber into its own pod. Then you throw in a bag full of batteries (a mix of 9V, AA, and AAA, so you're ready for anything), usually about $70 so I can buy another case and a half, maybe two cases of paint or a case of paint and some food. Toss in the mask, my extra lens just in case, and I had a mech as a backup until the mech got ruined haha.

We've been thinking about this. They have lockers at out field, but not enough to support all of the volume. 2 of us are already cramming into 3-4 lockers when we get them.

Saw a few people with the heavy duty totes that pad lock, them they chain them to a table. That would pretty much reserve us a table as well.

Yeah we leave them in the car and I load my pods at the car then just refill them after a couple of games. That way I don't have to worry about someone taking anything(=
If its stolen out of my car then I can get it replaced with my car insurance

My list would be way to long. Between my staging area bag and car bag I can fully gear 3 people and have a back up gun.

A couple key things to remember to bring (after your actual playing gear):

Tools, orings and lube to fix common problem.
Water.
Extra batteries.
Microfiber/cloth.
Insect repellent and sunscreen.

I have two bags I bring, a gun bag and a gear bag. I could smuggle a midget in the gear bag...it's big. What I have in there (Keep in mind I only play scenario and big games):

Multi-Key hex wrench, US Standard
Shoulder sling
DVR mount with cables.
Eye pipe and backing plate (DAM)
Maintenance parts for the DAM including lube.
Gun Manuals

Gear Bag:
1 Ariakon ACP pistol in holster
2 ACP spare magazines
1 Motorola UHF radio on custom channels
1 Pyre throat mic version 2
1 Pyre boom mic
1 Motorla charger
2 4 oz CO2 tanks
1 Remote line with Palmer Stabilizer and slide check for CO2 tanks.
1 Remote line with slide check and fill whip for HPA
1 Remote line with slide check.
1 Reflex red dot sight w/ 45 degree mount
1 4-9x 30mm scope
1 ThOR 1x Thermal Imaging scope
1 Scope lense cleaning kit
1 Laser range finder
6 lithium batteries (ThOR)
1 2035 lithium battery (Reflex sight)
1 i4 Mask
2 pairs gloves
1 Dye headband
1 Dye Rotor hopper
1 Richochet Apache hopper.
3 9 volt batteries
12 AA batteries
15 10 round tubes
8 paintball pods
1 hard squeegie
1 battle swab
1 fluffy style squeegie/swab hybred
3 microfiber towels
7 Allen drivers in various sizes
2 pair of pliers (one standard, one needlenose)
Scissors
6 Screwdrivers (A very small Phillips, #1 Phillips, #2 Phillips and 3 different sized flatheads)
Tank Orings
Oring oil
10,000 weight silicone oil (for orings on Slidecheks)
Mothers automotive car wax (for barrels)
4 picks (for removing hard to get to Orings)
Various loose allen wrenches metric and standard
AR-15 style stock wrench (for my son's Warsensor WS66).

Rotor and i4 Manuals
Spare knee pads
100-200 First Strike Rounds

Things that don't go in the gear bag:
Dye Mod top
Dye pants
Oakley boots

I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Now, is all this MUST have? Not always...but every time I leave something at home because I haven't used it in six months will be the one time I need it when I'm at the field so I've stopped leaving stuff at home. When I travel, I will remove some of it. For instance, if I know we're not running comms, I leave my radio at home. I'll also often leave my spare markers at home (pistol and A5) as my DAM is reliable enough that I don't feel I constantly need a backup. But this is mainly to save weight.

Except for my mask, tank, and vest, everything is duplicated in some way. When I'm at the field, I like being prepared for anything going wrong. I hate having to miss playing because of something going wrong and having the thing to resolve the issue sitting at home.
