Review: Just like every other paintballer out there, playing in the summer made me want to find something to wear that wouldn't kill me in 95 degree heat. The jersey is the perfect solution. It's made of mesh, so it's really, really light and breathable. If you don't where something under it, it's not quite like playing without a shirt, but it's almost as good. I've been using it since the spring, and it has really been a lifesaver on the hot days.

The digi-camo pattern is excelent. It really does its job well. I don't know how many players benefit from camo, or how often, but if you want to remain unseen, this is a verly nice pattern for woods and brush, at least in nothern NJ.

A few other little things that are worth pointing out: It has a fairly high collar, which provides quite a bit of protection against neck shots. It also has non-mesh elbows to prevent rips while crawling. On the subject of rips, it might seem that the mesh would be prone to catching on thorns and such and tearing. I've walked through thorn bushes in this (by accident), no rips to speak of.

There is one thing ou have to watch out for. The sizing. These things are made really, really big. The small fits me perfectly, and I'm 6'1". Just watch out for that if you buy one.
Conclusion: So what's the final word? Do you play in the woods? During summer? Is it really hot? Then get one, it's worth the price. 9/10.

the sizing is because the jersey is made to have pads under it and your supposed to order one size down
