Paintball Gear is a broad term covering all the paraphernalia you need to set you up in paintball. This might include: a gun, ammo, mask, clothing, safety equipment and carrying belt. For the purpose of this article, I will disregard the paintball gun and all of its attachments. Whilst it is the most important piece of “gear”, it requires a whole article to itself ( if not many). Apart from the gun, what else do you need to kit yourself out for paintball?
After the gun, the most important piece of paintball gear is the mask. The number of serious injuries may well be lower in paintball than numerous other sports, but they can be severe. It is not pleasant to be struck on the head by a paintball travelling at 300 feet per second. It is essential that you protect your eyes and ears from paintball damage.
