Another question.... What kind of gloves to wear? Harbor freight mechanic's gloves? Don't want them to be too bulky, but would really like to be able to feel my hands.

I like mechanix for all-year round play personally - they're baseball cut gloves but in a pinch you can shove hot hands in the palm to keep your hands toasty.

Bring extra socks too.

Coldest weather I can remember playing in was up in Albany with Obake, and like he said Mechanix are nice. I use the Mpact line myself, never had an issue.

Agreed, I always use mechanics gloves in the cold down to around 20 degrees. Below that I use light insulated gloves like the mechanix insulated gloves or some light ones that I got from Cabelas.

Its a bit odd that there has been a perfectly good solution for the last 30 years, but people insist on buying all sorts of expensive, specialized, high tech equipment to get the same result that a cheap plastic tube would.

Yes, over-simplifying, but I havent even touched the FPS adjuster on my guns in, well, ever. They always shoot around 290, unless really hot. But thats a different can of worms.

That doesn't mean it's not the better choice though.

Liquid co2 setups haven't been produced since what, late 80s? If you have the know how to get one and properly set it up, you don't need this thread telling you how to run it in the cold.

I've had just as much fun playing in 45*F weather as I've had in 60*F or 85*F weather, even in light rain or on wet ground mucky ground -- I play with a Phantom though

Shooting the paintball that is in my avatar pic the only difference is I have to clean the barrel a little more frequently in the 45*F weather and the paintball splatter looks more like lava globules than a misty pop like in warm temps

Damn I miss my Allstars

Yes, that is understood that HPA is a great choice for winter play especially if you are running a newer (electronic) gun.

That said, in my opinion Co2 is a better choice for the type of renegade woodsball games that tend to happen in the winter since you can buy several tanks and a fill station for C02 for the price of one new HPA tank. And no, liquid Co2 setups have been made through the 90's and into the 2000's. Even a new tippmann 98 can be easily set up for liquid Co2. And by no means did I say it has to be liquid. While liquid is a great choice you can simply run a vertical Co2 tank and it works great.
