Okay, so I finally got a team/club together and were going to go paintballing in November, and some of the girls want to know what to wear for protection. So could you tell me what they should wear. Thanks!

Contact the field you're going to and see if they supply chest protectors.

If they don't have any, several companies make chest protectors, but depending on where you are they may be difficult to locate. Price will vary by mfg/store.

Other options would be to wear a thick sleeveless sweater under the game shirt. It won't stop the pain but it'll help a little.

i didn't bother with a chest protector but i did go out and buy a sports bra. i just wore a tank top under and army style jacket. it was really warm the day i played. i got hit a few times in the chest but it didn't hurt any more than other places i got hit. I'm not as well "endowed" as some girls that play.

Walmart sells chest protectors. Then again, you always could go and steal some hobo's cardboard box and make your own. Just cut out the front and back then use some yarn or something to connect them.

The girls that I know are pretty tough! They don't wear any special protection. The welt pics are of my wife. She says she did not even really feel it. Adrenalin rush!

If they are worried about taking hits to the sensitive bits, a chest protector will help, or a bra with padded cups.

And the welts will happen. That's one thing you can't get around.

As for other safety gear: Make sure they wear a good pair of shoes with good tread. Slipping and tripping hazards have been more dangerous to me than any shots I have thus far taken. I remember early on in my time of playing I was beating a hasty retreat when I tripped in the woods and gashed my shin open real good on some debris.

Also, make sure they wear proper clothing. Loose fitting pants and a loose fitting sweatshirt help. The loose clothing will slow the ball down a bit before it makes contact with the body (I've taken hits in tight clothing, loose clothing and to bare skin... loose clothing hits always seem to hurt less.) Long sleeves are a must. Have them leave any rings at home (I always forget to take off the ring from my tribe... and getting hit on it sucks) as well as earrings and other jewelry (mainly because you don't want to risk losing it.)

A pair of gloves can help. Bare skin hits always suck, especially to bony areas. For neck protection on the cheap, take a bandanna and roll it up and tie it around your neck. I've been doing that lately since I can't find my neck protector.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
Good luck, Goldy.

i don't wear any sort of chest protection because my arms are usually up in front of my chest when I sight down my gun.
I will be purchasing elbow and knee/shin pads pretty soon though.

I don't wear anything special. I go out in the bare minimun actually....
Under armour, bdu pants, mask, shoes, and gloves.....

There is one that lives only to lay waste to all other instruments, leaving them
lying blue and lifeless in the swath of destruction that is the Trumpetís fury...

Then there's... The dark side...
