You can roll up a bandana too. I've seen people do that. Some of course used to use it to wipe quick gog hits. (it doesn't work very well haha)

You really don't need one to play. The only time I get shot in the neck is at close range, usually at the end of the game when down on bodies. If you want to use a neck protector, you're probably not playing at a level where they allow bunkering. I wouldn't get too worried about it.

I completely agree with eforce. In all my years of paintballing, I've only been shot in the neck twice and you barely feel them at all.

I've had a similar experience.
After a solid hit on my adam's apple my airway closed up and I couldn't breathe for a couple seconds. Pretty scary.
After that I won't play with my neck uncovered.

I still don't play with my neck covered (not saying I'm a B.A, just accepting the risks), and I once lost a mole I had on my neck from some guy who was probably shooting hot. It was back in 2003.

This was in woodsball, and he was pretty far off. It bled like a stuck pig and now I have to have in inspected yearly by doctor's to make sure it's okay. they're worried it could go cancerous and i'd ignore it thinking it's from paintball.

I played for years and only got shot twice in the neck - both were to the side of it and one was a bounce off a bunker that didn't break.

Wear a bandana if you feel the need for one. Or get a mask like the Vforce Shield - it has a moveable piece that covers your neck. I hated those neck protectors - hot and never stayed put.

You can always use an old benie slice a hole in the top slide over your neck will work. IMO

You can play without one. But I had a buddy who was shot in the throat and he bought a neck protector the next day. I can hurt really bad. It also depends what kind of coverage your masks has how much you need one.

I would also say bandanna if you really are afraid of getting hit there. I've also played for many years and only got hit in the throat/neck area twice and it didnt really hurt that much. It did sting but not as much as you would think. The only thing I did NOT like about getting hit was that it did bruise it to where it looked like a hickey.

So bandanna it's cheaper and you can use it for many other things.

i have been playing for 7 years and only have gotten shot in the neck 3-4 times at most. The ones that only really hurt is when you get hit in the adams apple but but normally your mask helps block that but if you want to wear one a bandana can do the trick
