some old crappy jeans, a t-shirt should do fine. I used to wear some hockey pants and a t-shirt, never had to much trouble w/ that.

Just don't do what i saw some kids at my field wear today. All white (completly) like k-swisses or wahtever, and it had rained also......bye bye whiteness.

I just wear any color sweats. I don't care really if people see me. I don't try to sneak around I just find wood bunkers and stuff to snap out of.

they hit kinda hard. It's like getting punched in the arm, pain there for half a second, and then it's gone. And that is at it's worst. Most of the time it's like, "oh, what is that i felt (it almost hurt)? ah, paintball, guess i'm out"

paint balls do hurt but not that bad....some times when you are really into the game you dont even fill it..camo is good for woodsball. but not nessasay... just wear loose paints you can move (crouch duck jump crawl) and a dark shirt...

I wear heavy camo jeans. I then wear some t-shirt or tank top. Over that I usually wear a hoodie. Good protection. I also got some cheap JT carnivore series gloves at wal-mart. They got a lil bit of fluffy padding in them. They help some. Only $7. Thats all you need. Get a Scott mask too. I can't understand wh yanyone wuld need something so expensive as a Dye invision either when it does the same job as a cheap-ass Jt mask.

my jt mask sucks, the foam is all scratchy like, it gives you the awesome racoon ring indentations around your eyes because the foam doesn't breath very well and is pretty firm...its like you have some freaking coral pressing against your face

vforce profiler is awesome for me because it has a low profile,thermal anti-fog lenses that are easy to swap out to put in tinted lenses or to clean them, and last of all it doesn't feel like I'm running around w/ a welder's mask on....

camo = keep it in woodsball....if you're playing at a recball field, and you're new, you're going to look even more new wearing camo...I've been wearing jeans for the longest, i seriously doubt camo pants can withstand the kind of slides I began to do in my jeans, my jeans didn't even seem to be worn at all (maybe because the field's grass is so good)

seriously you look better wearing plain clothes, maybe a long sleeved shirt, I wore a short sleeved jersey that I had laying around cuz it was hard to rip, nice and loose so it's "caught" a few paintballs w/o breaking them

Just wear somthin comfortable. I wore sweatpants and a long sleave shirt for like the first year I played, and it worked fine for me. But you can find cheap camo too so look into that.

When I 1st started playing i just wore underarmour(heat & Loose) and cargo pants, I shortly realized that was way too damn hot to play in in 95-100* weather. I then adopted Empire Pants and Jersey since they breath much better.
