whatchoo wearin?

as mentioned, i'm returning to the sport after a long hiatus and it's interesting what people are wearing on the field. kids seem to mostly be in some combination of camo garb, moms in jeans/sweatshirts, and the regulars show up in jerseys. the really good guys, it seems, wear whatever, but they almost always have paintball specific headcover.

not sure where i fit into this, but i showed up in shorts and long sleeve t shirt with mtn bike knee pads and football cleats. btw, the knee pads were great when they worked but they kept shifting around when i ran so i still shredded the skin on a nice gravely slide. i swear i got hurt more trying not to get hit than by getting hit.

Khakis...?

Wear what is comfortable. With padding it is very important to have something that wont shift on you. Consistency is key to better on the field performance.

I feel like pads move and shift around less if you are wearing pants over them, as opposed to shorts. Putting them into direct contact with whatever you are striking against just always felt like it would increase their likelihood to shift about.

EFlex mask.
Empire Contact Jersey over a short sleeve undershirt.
Thrasher 3 Pants.
Low rise hiking shoes.
Sandana.

Considering buying some guantlets and playing in just a TShirt for the Summer.

Outfit I remember the most was the guy who showed up in a Superman onesie pajama. Wasnt even an event, just a regular day of rec at the speedball field. Laughed to hard to shoot him, watching that cape fly between bunkers was too much.

Black t-shirt, jeans, knee pads, slide shorts, arm pads, and a bounce vest purely because my family doesn't like all the welts I can come home with.
Just wear what your most comfortable in because nobody cares what your wearing as long as your having fun.

Sly profit mask

I wear as little as possible due to the heat where I live.

But honestly no one cares what you wear as long your out playing. Wear whatever is comfortable and gives you enough protection to keep you confident while playing.

Just buy paintball clothing (at least pants and pads). A jersey is far from necessary, i usually just wear a slightly large T. Jeans, khakis, etc will shred to pieces if you try doing anything but stay stationary the entire time. If you dont want to fork over the cash for paintball specific knee pads you can find some cheap volleyball knee pads and theyll work well most of the time. Shoes are kind of preference combined with what would work well with whatever surface you play on. Most cleats feel like garbage imo and dont work well on soft and hard surfaces so i just use older tennis/running shoes i dont mind trashing. Playing apparel beyond that is all preference but id highly suggest NOT skimping on a mask. Buy something nice that wont fog up and that fits you well (you can have the trendiest mask in the world but it wont do you much good if it doesnt protect you or always feels odd). If you want specific recommendations for things lmk but like ive said, its uaually best to find what works best for you. Thats and i use a ot of gear most people dont have/cant get anymore. lol

bandana on my head, wicks the sweat, tho, don't wrap it tight, it gives balls a clean surface to break, and hurts like a hobo, wrap it mild, and balls sometimes bounce off your hair. (sometimes)

Old Redz pants
Old Etek Jersey or a shirt of some sort, whichever
Old urban camo Flex8 mask, used to wear a hat under it but without fail the little button on top (think ball cap) would cause a break. Need something else instead.
Old empire harness

Don't think any of my stuff is under 7 years old since it's all stuff I bought in highschool.

I'll have to get knee pads, I didn't use to wear any but my knees already have issues so no need to ruin them further.
