Which Paintball Gloves Are the Best for Me?

June 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 205

As you're choosing you paintball equipment, you need to keep in mind that you won't just need a gun and paintballs but also smaller equipment like paintball gloves, paintball helmets and a paintball face mask. Sometimes these kinds of things are easy to forget, but they can make your paintball experience a lot more comfortable and, more importantly, much safer. Some paintball courses won't even let you play if you don't have all of the proper equipment, including these items. Let's take a look at why they are so important.

The paintball gloves

Some paintball players don't like to wear gloves because they said that it hinders their performance and shooting ability. If that it your case, you might not have tried on the right pair of gloves. Paintball gloves should be relatively thin yet warm, and you should be able to easily move your fingers around quickly without any kind of resistance. If your gloves feel bulky and uncomfortable, then they probably aren't actually paintball gloves but rather just normal winter weather gloves. Spend a little extra money to get some carefully crafted gloves that fit your hands perfectly and allow for you to play for hours without your hands getting cold or scratched.

If you're playing paintball in a cold climate or during a brisk season, then you will definitely want to purchase a pair of gloves in order to make your experience more comfortable. Weather can be a deciding factor in many games; the better prepared players are usually going to win because they are concentrating on the game and not on how cold they are. However, paintball gloves are important in any season because they can also help to prevent you from getting any cuts as you are running through the course. Depending on the paintball course where you play, there might be rough sections where you can easily scratch up your hands and arms, and this pain will leave you in bad shape for the rest of the game.

The paintball helmets

While we are talking about paintball gloves, we should also talk about why other pieces are important as well. Paintball helmets are especially necessary on the paintball course. Although many places might not specifically require them, they can help keep you in better shape after particularly rough games. It's easy to fall on uneven ground, and cracking your head open definitely means game over. Besides that, paintballs can hit you in the head during tense games, so you always want to be protected in every area possible. A good helmet is sturdy yet lightweight and lets air in. You want to be properly protected, but you won't be able to concentrate if your head is all sweaty. You'll also want to make sure that you are able to sure that the helmet either has some sort of ear protection built in or that your ear protection can fit over top or around it. The same thing goes for your eyes; either get a full helmet with eye protection built in or make sure that you can wear your eye protection along with the helmet.

The paintball face mask

A paintball face mask is equally as important as your helmet, if not more so. Face injuries are relatively common during some paintball games, especially with inexperienced players who have bad aim or even with careless players who don't think about others' safety. Without a paintball face mask, you are risking your vision, and that is just a stupid chance to take. You need to protect your face and eyes from possible injuries, but you also need to be certain that you will be able to see out of the mask. Make sure that you purchase a good quality face mask that will offer you the best fit for your face.

Whether you are buying paintball gloves, paintball helmets or a paintball face mask, you need to make sure that you are buying from a reputable company that you can trust. Read reviews on each product to make sure that it's the right choice for you. Real buyers and users will able to tell you all of the good and bad aspects of the product, and they might be able to provide a little bit of insight into why this kind of equipment is necessarily.

Of course, the best way to make sure that you like a product is to try it out for yourself, so your best bet might be to simply splurge a little bit and pick a product that you are almost certain that you will enjoy. It's okay to spend some extra money in order to make sure that you are receiving the perfect product that corresponds with your playing style. Once you get the products in the mail, go ahead and try them out!
