I'd go for Salomons over Merrels. I absolutely love mine, which I linked in my first post. They are also lighter than the Moab, which is generally the most recommended Merrel boot. The Salomons are very common among the Teams now, and as well as with Rangers. While there aren't many ref pics of DEVGRU using them, there haven't been many recent DEVGRU photos either. Here's one that I did find, check the lower right corner.
If you do want to get rid of the SOF-T, you can see a bunch of the guys in that photo are running TQS METs.
Salomons are what is being issued out these days to teams guys. Had a few go through my Combat Trauma Management course back when I was still in and one dude had like four pairs in his car, as well as the dudes I bumped into at chow halls on my way out of Afghanistan wearing them. Also worth note is he (the first guy) blew out two pairs of AOR1 pants in the crotch during my course and said fuck it and ripped them down the side and threw them in the dumpster. Good thing he took the pads out first as I was about to go trash picking.
The two foregrip thing always kills it for me. Otherwise a solid green team loadout.
One thing that always bugs me when i watch airsoft vids is you'll see a person who has one foregrip on the end of their gun but doesn't use it. Instead the hold the gun by the magwell which isn't exactly as good as holding from a grip (in my opinion and experience). So I got the AFG on the end to steady myself for long range shots, but when in close quarters and needing to move my gun around faster, I can switch to the vertical grip near the back. In my experience it's much easier for me to work my gun in close quarters when my offhand is vertical and holding towards the back, though not on the magwell.

Airsoft isn't about being the fastest guy on the field, a guy with 99and1 kill ratio, or a being the dude with 1000's of dollars worth of guns and equipment on the field. It's all about having fun shooting other dudes who want to shoot you.

I will never understand the appeal of fake NVG's. When I look at impression pictures the first thing I notice is how fake they always look. Hence making the impression look worse. A well put together impression will look 10/10 times better without a useless hunk of plastic hanging in front of your face, IMO.
Other than that, the kit looks good. Like CJA mentioned, some better pictures would be nice.
