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?

If we add pink it won't stop alot of people from wearing it. Like all the speedballers I've seen that they like to wear pink.

This is a pretty good idea. Specops can be the first people to do this. It wouldn't be that hard.

I think something similar to the Baby Phat logo would be pretty neat, not girly girly but still obviously feminine.

Well, my wife wants chest protection. She would be much more interested in something cammo, or something she can wear under her BDUs or ACUs (she is an Army pilot). Since she is a 36 D I can tell you the "Batman" armor we have found ain't gonna cut it.

Come on Special Ops, make something for the ladies!

What I was thinking is a hook and loop pocket on the interior of the shirt/jersey and a proctor made out of a 1/4" thick foam about 2 sizes larger than bra size. That way she can cut it down to a proper size.

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 wouldnt want armor, getting hit doesnt hurt that bad, and I havent gotten hit in the chest yet, only on the arms/legs, unless im running around like a maniac straight at someone with no cover, I'm not going to get hit in the torso very easily. armor, kneepads, blah!! no pain, no fun.

there is most likley not a big enough market for it. I wouldnt go for pink because 1) i hate pink 2) i like camo 3) if i wear pink while playing woods, i would be a big bright moving target 4) i want to fit in, i dont want to stand out or make it a big deal. just want to have fun.

The thing is a good number of ladies think that chest shots will hurt and I'm sure they do. The clothes wouldn't necessarily be for experienced players either. It'd be nice for females players to know they can play with a bit less concern about pain/bruises. The protector would have to be removable anyway so the top could be washed and those that don't want to use it don't have to.

You all are jumping way past the obvious here.
Why not just create paintball sports bras?!

Do I have to think of everything?

My wife has been wanting to play but she is worried her implants ( :() will get hit and splode!

I would definitely buy a woman's sports bra with protection for the tatas. Not to worried about getting hit elsewhere except the throat and other dangerous or sensitive areas. Dye makes/made a sports bra but I cannot find much information or reviews about it.

I've never been one to worry about protections as a female. I wear a sports bra when I play, but that's for support not for protection. I found that chest shots just really don't hurt that bad. There is no more damage done when hit in the chest than anywhere else. I'm more worried about groin shots, so wearing a pair of speedball pants works just fine, I wear a jersey some of the time but most of the time just a t-shirt.

Basically, I wouldn't really want to see a female style of clothing, I think the gear out there right now is fine. I mean, if someone really needs a chest protector than yeah, I guess maybe...but I'd rather just see everyone toughen up.

I'd like their to be a female line. Chics have much different body shapes then males. I hear it from every woman i play with. They all want female specific clothing. Just no one has gone and done it. Kinda forces them to use ill fitting men's gear

We have a very large number of female players on the Irregulators.

Female specific clothing seems to be a war cry with them.
