The valken items are nice if you have the money for them.

Also the bdus will be just fine and can be had cheap, I find the tops to be uncomfortable and get hot quickly..

In the end it is up to you.

Camo and dark colored long sleeves are also an option if you live in a warmer climate.

For normal paintball use, I've never seen an advantage of BDU-type clothing, especially jackets, over jerseys/long-sleeved T-shirts.

Even most of the "tacticool" guys these days are switching to the long-sleeved Ts under their molle vests.

BDU pants are nice, though, especially when made of ripstop and having pockets for kneepad inserts.

I haven't been terribly impressed with the quality of Valken's clothing.
Great gloves, though.

I agree about BDU shirts, they're too hot and uncomfortable for paintball. Those shirts with light torso material and heavy sleeves are okay though. Valken and Dye make ones like that, but they're pricey.

At Living Legends this year I saw a lot of guys in BDU type pants, and then they would just have a black shortsleeve tee under their vests.

If you're wearing BDUs, just wear the pants.
If you're wearing the ACUs or the MCCUUs, I wouldn't. It's disrespectful to those who actually wear the uniform, especially when you start putting patches and things on them. I'd steer clear of actual Active-Duty wear.
The Valken pants and shirts are pretty amazing from what I understand, I personally wear JT stuff and love it.

Valken vtac jersey (echo cuz the mesh is lightweight and breathable, zulu looks cool but that under armoresque material on the center torso of the jersey gets chewed up by the velcro on a lot of vests not to mention thorn and brush) as far as pants go BDUs with ripstop stitches and if they dont have insert knee padding just grab a pair of promotion pads and youre golden. I hear the zulu pants are comfy padded and breathable/flexible but ive heard horror stories of them things gettin shredded in the field. And remember the most important part of camo. Keep it simple. Goin over the top when not really necessary can have adverse effects on your stealth.
