Okay so I just got my spec ops ultralights in digi camo today, my first buy from spec ops!!!

Brand: Special ops paintball

Product: Digi Camo Ultralights, Top and Bottoms

Clothes size: Medium

My size: 14 years old, 5' 3'', 112 pounds

My experience: entering intermediate

My type of play: Speedball yes speedball and woodsball



First look and wear:

WOW! These clothes look much much better in person than in pictures or videos. The other material over the knees and elbows match the color exactly (I may have a new version). I was in the car heading home with this in the box, opened it up and put it all on in the car while driving home, What? I couldn't wait!!! :laugh: :wacko:

Tops: So its got a good thing to protect your neck a good amount, i don't really need much padding or anything, im so used to getting shot now. Its a great digi camo design and i love it. It feels so comfortable, its like a nice soft material but then its got the like football mesh so it gives you a little breeze, not too much as to feel your wearing no top but not too little to keep you from sweating.

- Comfortable
- Great looking & great blending in
- Great for 60 degrees to 100 degree weather, any colder and i'd wear something underneath

Bottoms: Very comfortable, great looking. The different material on the knees is the exact same color design as the rest of it (unlike previous ones apparently). It has two normal pockets in the front and back like regular pants then it has two squeegee & swab pockets on both sides of your legs that are about a foot long.

Another thing is that spec ops has put there name ALL OVER the clothes, seriously every 3 square inches spec ops has there name blended into the clothes its not a bad thing or anything but I think its a bit pointless:

Overall: Great great product, absolutely love it, price was great too!! I'd buy it two more times!!!
Ultra-Lites sizing chart:

SM: Inseem 32 Waist 30-35
MD: Inseem 32 Waist 32-37
LG: Inseem 32 Waist 34-39
XL: Inseem 32 Waist 37-42
2X: Inseem 33 Waist 40-46
3X: Inseem 33 Waist 43-48
4X: Inseem 33 Waist 46-52


In the field:

Okay had a great day playing paintball today (sunday, june 10th).

Top: I think this is sort of pointless. You would want to wear a shirt underneath for more comfort from playing in the woods, if you have a shirt underneath then the football mesh is just not needed because you can't feel the breeze. It blends in with the environment extremely well (but it depends on the environment, like if your playing in the desert this isn't the camo pattern you'd want :wacko: ). I plan on buying the Fusions top, the fusion top is speedball like clothing which is more my style and more comfortable to me.

Bottoms: These are great pants! I can't stop wearing them they are so comfortable. They also have another layer of football mesh underneath the camo football mesh until the knees so its not too little of clothing. I do not wear another layer of clothing under these, they are perfectly setup. Alot of people wear underarmour under but it is not needed with these pants. The material which covers your knees is a different material, it still matches the digi camo pattern. I'd suggest getting knee pads, after a day of playing i couldn't stand being on the ground on my knees and when i looked my knees were red and bruising. These pants also don't provide any sort of padding anywhere, not even the groin, so I would suggest wearing slider shorts underneath.

Overall: The clothes are outstanding. They blend in very well (if in the right environment) and are breathable, but playing in the woods it is more comfortable wearing something without multiple holes like football mesh, I say the shirt is sort of pointless, but it does provide great camoflauge and is lightweight. The bottoms are very comfortable in this hot hot weather, they have 2 squeegee pockets and four big normal pants pockets, but for me knee pads are a comfortable buy to go along with these, and just to be safe I'd wear slider shorts.
Pretty much this is a great clothing product that offers a superb camo pattern and is lightweight and made of football mesh to stay cool in the hot summer weather conditions. For me though I think the fusions would be a better buy for me because they cover my body comfortably in woods play, and they are much like speedball clothes which is my type of play, the speedball clothing construction is a requirment for my sort of play.
If the weather is really hot and you want a really well blending camo, the ultralights are the way to go! but i'd suggest buying knee pads and if you are a guy i'd get some slider shorts.
This product is great and really good for really hot summer days, but I think the fusions are a better buy for me.

This is all I got now, will get you some better pictures specifically for the clothes soon:

They fit very comfortable, the pants are a little long but not so i'll trip over them, and plus when im wearing boots and have the bottom thing wrap around it i'll be all set! Plus you want them to be a little baggy for layering up in colder weather. I'll be back next week to finish and edit this review. Sorry for the delay! B)

but great clothes!! B)

I've got the Fusions in a size medium, and I'm 6'0" and 170-175 lbs. the jersey fits great, but I think I need to get another size up on the pants, the button pops when I crouch or slide... and they are kinda short, not enough to be annoying though.
When in doubt, duct it!

not much really, but they are a little baggy for (1) comfort and (2) so you can layer up in colder weather or wear knee pads or whatever.

Little ben I think both the large and mediums would fit good for you, the large would be a little bit bigger though i would imagine but not so much as to they are too big.

Vyrsius, I wish too!!
