Choosing the right paintball apparel depends upon many different factors. Before you can choose the clothing and equipment you are going to wear, you need to know what type of game you are going to be playing. If you are playing a tournament style game, you will probably need to have a jersey and professional safety gear. However, most people are only playing the occasional game with their friends at the local paintball field or in their own backwoods.

For those people that play the casual game, you probably don’t need too much. You will want to have a mask or goggles, as well as long sleeved shirts and long pants. You might have some old clothing in your closet already that will make a decent ensemble for a quick game. If you want to upgrade your paintball apparel and have some professional clothing and gear, you can find some great shops online that have everything you need.

If you choose to use items that you already have, you are going to want to make sure that they are old and that you don’t need them to wear on a regular basis. Playing paintball is not clean. You will find that your clothing gets dirty from running around the woods and field, not to mention the splatter of paint that is sure to coat the gear throughout the game. If you have some old baggy clothing, such as sweatshirts and sweatpants, they can make ideal paintball apparel until you buy some better quality gear.

Individuals that are playing more frequently or who participate in tournaments will need to have different types of clothing and gear. In addition to the mask to protect the head and eyes, they will also need to have other safety gear, such as pads for the knees and the elbow, and perhaps a chest protector. Gloves are also a good idea.

Something that many people don’t consider when they are playing is the shoes they wear on their feet. You need to make sure that the shoes are comfortable, but you also need to be sure that they are going to give you enough traction when you are running through the woods.

The web is the best place to find all of the paintball apparel you need today. This is especially helpful for those who don’t live close to a good sporting goods store.
