Paintball Jersey

Hey Nation! So I just recieved my Empire 2012 Contact Jersey and its a tad big. The arm pads are pretty big and flare out when I pull up to shoot and it just feels big. I have two options I was thinking about:
•Send it back and downsize (not sure if I'd have to pay shipping or not)
•Keep it and try to shrink it in the wash and buy elastic arm guards and out it over the pads.

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
Zach

It's not going to shrink in the wash, paintball jerseys are usually made out of polyester or a similar synthetic that won't shrink.

Do you wear elbow pads/forearm pads? Those might help fill up the empty space a little bit (and also lead to a lot of bounces).

I dont i was hoping id be able to use the ones on the jersey but id like it to not flop around so much.

I was thinking about getting something like these: http://www.amazon.com/Forearm-Shiver...our+arm+sleeve

If it says Underarmor, it's over priced. I think ANS still has Empire elbow pads on sale. If you're going to get something for your arms, they might as well cause bounces.

TBH I'd send it back for a smaller size. I have one, and I had the same problem. I don't really wear padded jerseys anymore, so I don't wear it at all.

Yeah I wear a large or xl when it comes to jerseys. The only problem I got with xl is the arm length and where the collar sits. Other than that its perfect slack for bounces and roll offs
