1. Dress for the weather!

Almost paintball fields are outside of the city, and the weather also different. That's why it is most important to wear anti-weather clothes and make sure those are comfortable. The clothes help you not to become cold or hot. In the paintball field always you have to run that's why you should wear layers. Whenever you become hot, you can remove them quickly.

2. Do not Wear Short Clothes.

You have to wear long sleeves and not to wear shorts clothes. One of the great removable layers is hoodies. If you're playing in the cold weather, then don't forget to bring a hoodie which is an excellent removable layer clothe. Gray or black color dress is very suitable to wear. The colorful dress looks so dirty in the field while you're playing so bring some dark color clothes that you won't mind becoming muddy.

The paint is washable, but grass & dust made a permanent spot on the dress. So dark clothes are handy. Don't think about losing your expensive clothes because paintball game is just for fun.

3. Wearing A Cap or Beanie 

It is wise to bring a cap whatever it is a baseball cap or beanie. It depends on the weather if it is hot then wear a cap to stay cool. On the other hand, if it is cold then bring a beanie to warm your head.

Always try to wear comfortable and soft shoes because you have to run the whole field while you're playing. If you can't run through your boots, then it will be a sensitive situation and very annoying. You have to buy heavy duty sports or running shoes. You can also use hiking shoes but keep in mind that the shoes must be comfortable.
