Why do players wear jerseys?

I see people wear jerseys for recreational play? is this a norm? or is it more like a look thing? Im not sure..

Because they can?

If public nudity was allowed, I would imagine people would play in their birthday suits if they could...

It's all about how you wanna play. If you wanna play in a banana suit have at it, if you wanna play in a tuxedo all the power to you...

Jerseys offer protection. Most are padded, a lot are resistant to abrasion on the elbows or palms of the hand.

They are also easy to clean, and designed to shed off paint in the washing machine. Go in your street clothes, play in your gear, and then you can go home in a clean shirt afterwards.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

That's an answer I was looking for. Thanks!

To add to this the added padding also helps promote balls bouncing off your person and not breaking.

Some also just wear them cause they look cool. I wear one of mine to work every once in a while because I like it.

There are many reason to wear one the quote and the first part of my response are the top reason I wear them.

Jersey material also breathes better than cotton t-shirts. Here in Atlanta, it's more comfortable playing in a jersey (no shirt underneath) than in a t-shirt.

playing in south florida you quickly realize that wearing anything,
and I mean anything, made out of cotton is pretty crazy. People
do it, sure. but it's crazy. jersey material is more appropriate for the
heat and also more resistant than your street clothes, or should be

As the last few said, it's actually pretty comfortable, not really anything to do with sponsorship. Once you get a gun, loader, mask and tank, paintball clothing is definitely something a frequent player should get. Paintball pants in particular are amazing. To newer players, they look heavy and cumbersome, but they are mostly made of a very breathable mesh and many time more comfortable than jeans or sweat pants.

I have just finished ordering a few semi custom jerseys from raza and I am not on a team or sponsored by anyone I just think they look cool and it's kinda awesome to have your name on the back of a jersey when playing if nothing else someone can yell your name or number so you know they are talking to you. As stated jerseys offer protection/padding that promotes bounces and I just find them comfortable to play in. The one jersey I ordered has half gloves built into it so I wont need to wear gloves when wearing it. Most are well ventilated and I mean they are made to paintball in and you gotta wear something while paintballing. As also stated paintball pants I would highly recommend. I love the zip up pockets to keep my stuff where I want it and having some other easy access pockets on the sides for squeegees etc. I really bought them for the crotch protection and haven't been let down yet by them. By far one of my best purchases.

After playing speedball in some 90+ degree heat in a cotton Carhartt long sleeve shirt (with a t shirt underneath) I will without a doubt invest in a jersey. Also I took my first nut shot about 2 weeks ago. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Went and bought Empire Slide Shorts right away

I wear a t-shirt and chest rig because I play mag fed, but plenty of people wear jerseys because they are lightweight, breathable, and cover your torso with some padding.

"Serious" recreational players were buying and wearing pro-style jerseys long before they started coming with pads sewn into them.
Mostly it's a fashion thing. Kids like to emulate the look of the "pro" players they see on the internet.

I like having a set of paintball dedicated clothes, if i rip or ruin them in anyway i dont have to worry as much. What else am i gonna wear out there though? Jeans? Tshirt soaks up way to much sweat and normal clothing is too thin.

I prefer a tank top and elbow/arm pads rather than a jersey. I think Jersey's aren't bad for when it gets cooler out though.
