We often talk about what equipment you should purchase, but what you wear is just as important. Newbies are often left wondering what they should wear or purchase if they are serious about pursuing Paintball as a hobby.
You should consider the characteristics of paintball, you’ll be playing in all weather, from snow and sunshine to rain. Rule of thumb is always dress in layers that you can adjust weather according. Ultimately remember its paintball you’re going to get shot at, covering and protecting your skin is a must.
Head wraps and hats are the difference between your mask fogging up or not. A good headband will soak up all sweat thus preventing the mask fogging. Headbands come in various designs but our recommendation would be the HK Army Headband which is a available in a great range of colours and designs so there’s something for everyone.

If you only get one item of protection it should be a good pair of knee pads. Other items like elbow pads, gloves, chest protectors are nice extras but knee pads can really prevent serious injury.
Exalt Freeflex knee pads offer a good balance between offering protection whilst being comfortable and breathable at the same time.

Paintball exposes your legs and arms to various elements, such as thorns, twigs, rocks etc, so obviously shorts and short sleeved tops are never ideal.
We have a vast variety of jerseys and tactical wear, its mainly down to personal preference and what you ca afford. Check out our jersey selection at http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/apparel/playing-clothes/jerseys
Paintball designed pants will offer you strategically placed stretch panels for maximum mobility as well as stretched knee panels and abrasion resistant knee pads. Again we have a varied range available so check them out at http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/apparel/playing-clothes/pants.
