The only paintball specific clothing I have are my Empire React pants. Can't go wrong with the extra padding and whatnot. Although, I do use volleyball kneepads and soccer cleats. I don't feel jerseys really needed, especially in this Texas heat.

it all depends on what playing. a lot of people say need paintball pants if play speed ball so get some parts of pants arms or parts body cover. other say if play woods ball might want to where army pants. i say if all up to you or what other people say. do what you think is right. don't buy some if don't need. later in life might say why did i buy that when i did not need it.

You donīt need anything else than mask, however they are much more comfortable.

The way I play, itīs essential to have knee/shin pads, elbow pads and gloves.
I didnīt use to wear any and the scars are very visible today.

The occasional pains in you joints that keep you from sleeping also make you wish you had them. Kneepads help with the bad knees as theyīre more about support than protection.

All my gear cept shoes is paintball specific, pb pants and jerseys have more ventilation than bduīs so I wear them also in the woods.
