It has recently come to my attention that there is no gear made for paintball specifically for winterplay
I have owned both Fusions and Ultralights,and i love them to death during the summer,but in the winter i always end up freezing.
The normal solution of course is to put on more layers,but I'm the type of player who loves to play light,and when i have 3 or 4 sweatshirts on under my jersey and 2 pairs of pants under my bottoms it wieghs me down.
I'm also a very aggressive player,and i always end up drenched before the day is over.
I could always switch to overalls and karharts but I know i always hate it when people do that, i cant hit them becuase they are too padded that each shot bounces,so i will not wear them wanting to keeping the game fair.

My proposal is simple,Take the existing Fusions,and add insulation to them,and possibly make them waterproof.
This could keep players warm and light and still have the great features of Fusions.
Since it is a winter version,a snow pattern could even be made for it.
I miss the old days of sword beach and such

A winter weather jersey would be nice, but it shouldn't be to thick. The same should be done with PB pants too.

Check out what Cabela's has to offer in layering. You can also customize a base layer to go under your fusions for the environment you play in. UnderArmour ColdGear may also work. Gaiters and gloves are a must.

I just wear a set of long john's under my fusions and a nice heavy long sleeve shirt when I got out in the winter (paintballing, snowmobiling, snowboarding). Been out this year for several hours in single digits (windchill in the negative teens) and have been fine, but then again I am a bit tolerant to the cold.

damn! you beat me to the punch, I was just thinking about having winter cammo and gear for the matter, i.e. vests as well in winter commoflage in an assortment of cammo styles like digi, regular winter cammo, omnipat etc...

I was kinda thinking a windproof outer layer that would be hard enough to cause the paintballs to break, it'd be warm, maybe a little heavy, and might decrease mobility a bit, but hell, i'd buy that, just to keep things fair.

i think it would all be good, just not too thick because of players like daggers and sabre because even out in the cold they could break a sweat.

other ideas would be:
mask covers
barrel covers
hopper covers
tank covers
possibly a full gun wrap lol
customizable vests

Normally I just add a light wool shirt or some wicking longjohns under BDUs, a surplus wool scarf to keep the ears and neck warm, wear thicker socks, throw on a pair of shooting gloves, and sometimes a snow camoflage parka or poncho if there's snow on the ground. As long as the weather isn't below freezing, that usually works out fine.
