Help! Neck guards - Thoughts

Maybe looking to find a neck guard for play but don't know if it is worth it or what kinds are good. Help would be much appreciated! Pros and Cons?

The dye or PE ones are nice. You could always roll up a bandana and wrap it around your neck though.

Honestly, I find it just too hot... I wear neck protection only when temp drops below 50 F...

I've been shot in the neck twice. It hurts like crap and i had a quarter-size welt for 2 weeks. I invested my money in a cheap jt one and i'm doing fine now. You won't get shot in the neck much, but it is nice for when you do

I usually don't wear a neck guard because as stated above they can be very hot. But if you do want some protection I would suggest getting a bandanna at your local sporting goods store. They are cheap, come in many colors, and breathe quite well even in the heat (They also work great for cleaning off mask lenses).

The one time I wasn't wearing mine I get shot right in the neck. -.- My own fault but they'll definitely keep you out of the hospital if you take an unlucky shot.

If you always have your gun up when youre being shot and youre looking where you should be (in the direction of your opponents) its very hard ti be shot in the neck.

I was really scared of it when I started playing, forgot about it, then when I DID get shot in the neck it was no worse than any other hit
