Have you guys considered it? As it is there are pants made to protect the "boys", have knee protection built in and there are jerseys with elbow protection.

Why not a line designed to fit female players better with some kind of built in chest protector?

I'd think it'd have to be distinguishable from the mens version because I can see male players wearing them for the padding and added bounce effect.

Unless they were designed to offer protection, but not increase the likelihood of bounces.

That's actually a really good idea. It wouldnt have to be super padded or reall ycomplex. Maybe like a thin layer of foam sewn to the inside of the chest of the jersey or bdu or whatever.

Actually, you could also produce it as a kit that you could install on any jersey or shirt. That might go over better than making an actual jersey.

Are you talking about something like the Empire ground pounder shirt?

I like the idea as long as it fits tight ;)

It would be nice to hear some feedback from the ladies.

A special line of paintball clothing for women? I think you might be on to something here. It would have to be something that guys would not want to wear, cat logo, some pinks in there maybe! Padding where they want it the most. I could see it. The question is: Is there a big enough market for it?


We need some feedback from the ladies.

They could set up a women only speedball tourney to kick the new line off.

Yeah, I think that the speedball scene is were you would find the biggest market for something like this.
