just to confirm for anybody looking into heatgear. it works just as well as its counterpart coldgear in its designated weather. this layer of heat gear will actually keep you coolor than wearing nothing. one breeze through the field and you can definetly feel the difference. heat gear is well worth the money you pay for it. coldgear can be substituted for by adding layers, heat gear simply cannot because it is adding a layer to keep you cooler, and no other products have been proven to do so
buy some heat gear and stay playing. my post proven through 100's of events (paintball, track meets, soccer games, and even just really hot days)
the way the stuff fits, you barely know its there and ive come so accustomed to it, and lke it so much that i use it, when i can, instead of beaters even in school. there simply is no substitute for heatgear or a nike similiar
BIG WARNING!! DO NOT GO GENERIC!!!! THEY SIMPLY DO NOT WORK AS WELL!!!!
this is however, NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HYDRATION OR NUTRITION!!!!
maybe this belongs in the post about protecting the jewels but, underarmor compression shorts (basically spandex boxers), can significantly reduce the amount of times a paintball will do any damage down there. i know this sounds rediculous but after wearing it for a while, your natural body motion will actually move **you know what** lower and sometimes even a tiny bit under your body (obviously, but just to clear it up with any simpletons, they dont move they just settle lower and out of the way). sounds annoying right? not really. it creates a flat area and most times, the zipper of your pants creates a shield for the area where they settle. you get used to it quickly. and you can take one more thing off the list to worry about during a game. anything from underarmor, except maybe turfgear, has a practical, and several unsuggested but useful, i guess you coudl call them positive side effects? also takes away from the anoying "riding" that can happen when under action ina normal underwear
haha, sounds awkward, but it works, i promise, hasnt done me wrong yet
WOOT UNDERARMOR!!! now all they need is camo and were all set!!!
