When it comes to playing any sport, safety should be the priority. And for a paintballer, the most sensitive part of the body is the head and it should be covered properly from every side as much as you can. There are a couple of headwears that protect your head, neck, ears, and eyes as well. The first one is Goggles or masks are used to protect your face and eyes when the paintball hits your face.
The anti-fog shields goggles and masks come in different sizes, shapes, and styles as well to select according to your requirement. Another thing you can consider is a “HOODIE” for protecting your head and neck, it must fit easily with your mask. There is another option which is a helmet, which protects your whole head.
But it depends on you which option is suitable and comfortable for you. I’ll tell you one downside of the helmet is you don’t feel comfortable when the temperature is high. Also, use the paintball neck protector to save your neck.
As the paintballs come in different sizes and can be fitted according to the size of the paintball or the amount of energy. I would suggest avoiding using delicate shirts that are overly exposed. Also, avoid wearing so many layers of clothes due to fear of getting hit by a paintball. Because it won’t let you play the game, especially in the summer season in case of overheating by running around.
But the question is what you need to choose, just select a loose-fitting long-sleeve T-shirt reliable jeans, or cargo pants. After selecting these attires, you are good to go. But if you are planning on playing woodsball, you can visit any local army surplus store to buy some ACU/BDUs.
When it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes that don’t hurt the feet when hit by a paintball. Actually, you select the different attires on the base of the paintball type. If you wanna have the woodsball (also known as scenario paintball), we’ll suggest considering the shoe with an adequate quantity of tread and some ankle support as well. For the paintball, cleats are the option you should choose and our recommendations are to select football cleats.
Although, baseball cleats are also useable, but not as beneficial as soccer cleats. One more thing I’d add, avoid using branded shoes as you’ll face difficulty while running. Also, keep away from the shoes that have metal spikes and are open-toed. Because the probability of impairing your feet gets increases.
There are different types of gloves paintballers used and it also depends pon their experience. But this kind of activity can hurt any sportsman, safety gear must be applied when you are getting into the field. The first one is Fingerglass gloves that only cover the palm of your without losing a lot of crashes. And the second one is sports and shop gloves that cover the whole hand with the fingers to provide you full safety and are durable too.
The last one is a favorite of any paintballer and is designed for them specially and that is paintball-specific gloves. It provides an extra grip on the palm, fingers, and thumbs. It depends totally on whether you wanna use the fingerless gloves or not and golf and weightlifting gloves can also be used.
Clothes according to weather
Weather condition is very important when you consider upper body accessories. Sometimes paintballers choose the sweatshirt in hot weather to not get hurt when they get hit. Our suggestion will be to select a loose-fitting light shirt to abrade easily when gets overheated. And wear warm clothing in the winter season such as thick socks, beanies, gloves, etc.
Paintballing can be messy at an extreme level but without wearing the paintball gears that protect you from body damage. And we have narrated all those gears that you must’ve worn before playing. As it can seriously hurt your exposed body lump by hitting the paintballs. By following our guide, you’ll be able to select the right paintball attires to save yourself and enjoy the game comfortably.
