I've never played with any padding except natural padding, but I don't hold it against anyone that does. You never know what could happen and extra protection is definitely not a negative. It's all in what you're comfortable playing in and if your brain is bigger than your brass. I've played in shorts and a tank, but never reccommend it for others, especially newer players.

Well, that's a lot more feedback than i could have hoped for! I had a great time and the padding bounced quite a few times. Went twice and got a few pro players out with my 98 Custom. I don't think i got too many kills though. Hopefully the more i play, the more experienced i get, and the better i get! Thanks for all the replies, guys.

Unfortunately, i always feel like i have to longball with my 16 inch barrel, because i get torn up if i move up by people with Axe's and other electro markers. That's what makes me feel like a *****, because i don't have the balls to move up.

Never anything wrong with not moving up. You're more useful at the 20 shooting and staying alive than you are at the 50 getting lit up.

Oh, and don't call the experienced players "pros." It gets on some peoples nerves (not sure why).

in my opinion if you don't wear padding you get used to the pain. apparently i got shot in the leg yesterday and i didn't even know about it because i am so used to it

In the original olympics the Olympians competed in the nude, I would say to do the same.

You're not a baby. I wear my Empire slide pants and Nike pro combat shorts underneath. I would rather be well protected than deal with unsightly bruising for weeks on end. Plus this helps the paint the bounce off you. People can say what they want, but at the end of the day, it's up to you and the amount of pain/scarring you want to deal with.

Once you get the worst of it, the rest just doesnt seem so bad.

Even though I've played the game for 10 years I have no problem saying it hurts, I've just got used to it. The more you get used to it the more confident you'll get. Just have fun.

This is somewhat closely related to another sport I play, softball. There is a constant debate on my softball forum of whether or not pitcher's should wear masks/helmets. It is becoming the norm for more and more pitchers to wear them, not because something will happen, but because something could happen. There have been very few instances of players being hit in the face because most of those that pitch know what they are doing. However, there are instances where "stuff" happens and the results are not pretty. Every time a pitcher does get hit, a hundred more buy a mask, or so it seems. And, every time a new pitcher asks for suggestions as to what to wear for protection, a hundred outfielders chime in, "use your glove".

TL;DR

Like softball pitchers, it's you that has to go home and pay the bills, deal with the scrapes and bruises, etc., so do what makes you feel comfortable and quit worrying about what other people think.

No. I take a private group out every once in awhile. We have this one guy -a couple years younger than me- who always wears a vest below his shirt. A buddy of mine, after a year of "shirt only" paintball, just purchased a vest. Just enjoy yourself and don't worry what others will think. You're already spending loads to play, have fun doing it.

Ps: No one is going to walk up to you and talk trash. If they do, I'm sure you'll find that the paintball community is generally not tolerant of this kind of trash.

Like everyone else says it's personal preference. Wear it if you don't like it take it off. BTW it's like Murphy's Law - Whereever you don't have padding is most likely where you going to get hit. i.e. fingers, neck, nuts, etc.
