Are Cheap Paintball Jerseys Worth The Small Investment?
Cheap paintball jerseys are a good idea for the budget-conscious paintball player as you are going to get splattered with paint anyway.
In fact why splurge on an expensive custom jerseys with special designs and logos when you will be decorated otherwise during the course of the game?
Buying cheaper paintball jerseys is also a great option for paintball teams who find themselves
operating on a budget and care more about playing for the fun of it. Some would
even say that the cheap paintball jerseys are more fashionable than the expensive
The expensive ones have been known to turn the wearer into a walking billboard
for the status conscious.
Cheap paintball jerseys usually come in a solid color, such as basic black with
a minimum of gaudy detail or design. In general, the less you pay, the more minimal
the design of the cheap paintball jersey.
The cheapest paintball jersey I could find on the Internet is a case in point
when it comes to this "less is more" theory
about paintball clothing. This
jersey is plain black with a very small Empire logo across the front and costs
a mere $29.95. It is made of a high performance soft polyester fiber
contains channels that allow the player to keep cool and dry. This cheap paintball
jersey was found at http://www2.888paintball.com.
This is the kind of jersey that makes an ideal canvas for silk screening or spray
painting a team name on. A drawback is that it does have short sleeves
which is not ideal except in very hot weather.

The DYO PROTO
Paintball Jersey is only 39.95 and comes in red blue and
gray. In the $50 to $60 range the DYE C4
Jersey was 54.99. Like most jerseys
under sixty bucks are so, these jerseys were quite gaudy
with the company's
logo splashed in big letters on the front. This does not make them ideal for
customization with a team's name or logo.
When it comes to practicality, try to buy a paintball jersey that covers as
much skin a possible.
Long sleeves are definitely preferable to short sleeves
as long sleeves protect your arms from the impact of paintballs as well as any
scratches or scrapes that you might incur while sliding, rolling and brushing
up against trees and walls to hide from the enemy.
Cheap paintball jerseys usually do not have padding, you are also advised to
wear long johns
beneath the jersey to protect you and give you added protection
against blows and paintballs. If you have some extra cash, you can invest in chest
instead of long johns because it will keep you much cooler, breathes
well, and gives you better protection.
Experienced paintball players also recommend buying a jersey that is one size
so that you can layer clothing beneath it.
A drawback of buying low priced paintball jerseys is that they often come in neon
and very bright colors.
This is not a very good camouflage
if you are
trying to hide from your opponents in an open field.
Sometimes it is possible to customize a cheap paintball jersey with green or black
spray paint so that you are more concealed
while playing out in the field.
