Dressing for Your First Paintball Game

Are you getting ready to play your very first game of paintball? Once you have all of your paintball equipment, it is time for you to start thinking about what you will wear on the field. Playing a game of paintball is a little more intense than playing laser tag or having a Nerf war. The fact of the matter is, Paintballs can sting, and they can be hard on your clothes. Because of these considerations, you need to take a bit of extra care when dressing for your first game.

Dressing for your first game of paintball can be a bit tricky. You want to wear enough layers to cushion the blow to your skin, but you still want to be able to move easily. That is why your best bet is light layers that aren't too constricting. Wear baggy jeans, a t-shirt, a hoodie, and, depending on the weather, a light jacket. Keep in mind that if you get too hot, it is pretty easy to remove one of your layers, but it is much better to go into a game with too many layers than too few. Make sure that you wear clothes that you don't mind getting ruined. If you don't feel you have these kinds of clothes, a quick trip to Goodwill may be in order.

Paintball has sort of a bad reputation for being overly painful, but if you dress correctly for your first game, you can rest assured that you will have a blast!
