How To Choose The Best Paintball Uniform

How To Choose The Best Paintball Uniform

Paintball uniforms generally consist of a pair of loose fitting pants and jersey, as well as camouflage fatigues for tactical matches. When choosing a pair of pants and jersey, select breathable and flexible material, as this will protect from overheating and discomfort, as well as allowing a high level of mobility to the wearer. Consider attire which includes added ventilation and extra padding over your knees and elbows for protection during an active game. For scenario games, it's most fun dressing up for the part and using the most realistic paintball guns and gear possible. It seems camouflaged military BDUs are the cheapest way to blend in with your playing environment and play the part. These clothes work excellent however paintball uniforms are also available for this type of play and work even better. Tactical paintball uniforms are not only camouflaged in as many patterns as real army fatigues but also have extra padding in all the right places and pockets specifically designed for carrying paintball gear.

1. Shirts

When buying a paintball jersey, pay special attention to the collar, making sure it is large and low enough to avoid irritation around the neck. Neck protection is better served by a specifically designed neck protector, so there is no need to make the uniform uncomfortable for the sake of covering up the neck area. The best jerseys have padding over the elbows and forearms to make army crawling less painful. Padding over the chest and shoulders in these garments can also help replace other types of protective gear like a chest protector if you can find a jersey with padding that's substantial enough. Look for jerseys that have mesh panels under the arms or on the sides of the torso for excellent ventilation. Many players just buy a paintball jersey without the rest of the uniform and get away with a cheaper version and still look the part.

Tactical World Store collaborated with military and law enforcement personnel to design this high performance shirt. The shirt is famous for its high level moisture wicking ability. Its body fabric is much lighter than the arms, making it highly breathable. Also the forearms are reinforced with material that doesn’t allow wear or tearing even in tough settings. This shirt is made to excel in every operational setting.

2. Pants

Without a good pair of paintball pants however you're really missing some of the best protection you can get. Pants specifically designed for paintball have large amounts of padding over the knees, groin and rear to offer the best protection for the lower body you will find. A good pair of paintball pants will easily replace other protective gear like knee pads or shin guards and are much more comfortable to wear. Just like their upper body counterpart, the best paintball pants also have mesh panels in strategic areas to help cool the body for a more comfortable wear. Even if you don't get a matching jersey right away, a good pair of professional looking paintball pants will give you a stylish look that you will back up with much better play. These garments are designed to help you move faster and more agile on the field and outperform anything else you can wear on your legs to play.

3. Shoes

Another part of a complete paintball uniform that you should pay special attention to is foot wear. Paintball shoe options include cleats for speedball and jungle or military-style boots for tactical play. Any comfortable shoe will suffice but if you want the best traction for the terrain you're playing on, consider specific footwear. Whatever you decide to wear on your feet however, should be dark in color, as white shoes will stain easily from contact with mud and/or paintball paint. White shoes are also easier to see when trying to hide in the bush during a scenario game. If you've put effort into camouflaging yourself with the right patterned camo fatigues, it doesn't make sense to ruin your disguise with bright shoes that don't match. Also, make sure your footwear is as lightweight as possible, in order to maintain speed.
