Review: I havn't played with this yet since i just recieved it, but here are my first impressions.
-Nice padding on the forearms, sholders, and a bit on the chest where the ecplise logo is.
-The venting looks awsome for those warm days of play
-fabric looks resistent
-Nice piece of cloth beneth the jersery to wipe between games

However, iam not sure how well its going to hold up. When i recieved the jersey it already had some dangling threads... not that the stitches were weakened, but its just a though since my 07 destructions havn't held up as well as i would have expected.
Conclusion: The product itself if spotless. The padding is a nice touch, as well as the cloth they added to clean up.
Its a nice product and definatly worth the purchase.

Review: I think that this is the best jersey that planet eclipse has come up with yet. It looks alot better than the DYE jerseys to me, it definately makes a statement. It has padding on the forearm, shoulders (for your tank) and the chest. It is very lightweight and has alot of venting. I play alot of woodsball and this is perfect for it. It has a built in microfiber cloth for the goggle shots. The only problem that i have with it is that the velcro on your pod pack causes balling up and wear in the fabric. I also bought mine a size too large so, which was my fault, but it still is great.
Conclusion: Get it, it is much better than almost any jersey out there.

Review: I have owned this Jersey for a little over 3 months, and I have to say that it is very nice. It is comfy and has good padding on forearm, shoulder, a little on the chest. there is a micro fiber cloth under the front side of the jersey that comes in very handy for cleaning up afterwards. It is also very light weight and breathable.
Conclusion: I would highly recommend this to any player because it is great. It has everything you would want in a good jersey.

Review: Well I got this jersey when I started playing cause I found it to be very stilysh and it seemed to be very well padded. when I started to play It seemed that the more I played, the more I liked the jersey. Every time I go to play I use this jersey and its great cause the stichin has held on even after all of those slides I do. and when I get hit in the arms or in the e logo cause those are the areas that are mostly paded its a bounce a 75% of the time. But something I did not like about the pading is that th one in the chest are is just a little in a very small area and I wish that there would have been more pading in that area. but also it had a really cool feature which was a cotton cloth on the inside of the jersey that was to be used after the game to wipe any paint so that the stain doesnt look fresh, or for you cheatin' type you can use it in the middle of the game ;). Not a bad price either ( 35 bucks isnt that costly) but it aint the cheapest jersey out there either. But something that pisses me off is the jersey is so not breatheble. I build up a thirst 2 seconds after the break (for those who dont know what the break is, is when a speed ball game starts and everybody heads for their bunkers, but I live in Puerto Rico so it is really hot over here) so it is very important that after a game you hit that water so you dont dehidrate. also has some 3 month old paint stains after washing it but not to noticible. and the grafics in this jersey are great, planet eclipse really has a thing for artwork.
Conclusion: Well i will say it is a great jersey for them people interested in playing for a long time since it will really last a long time but if you are just a weekend warrior then it may not be the jersey for you. an 8 for performance but not a 10 for turning a paintball field into a desert enviroment

Review: Before selecting the jersey, I have compared reviews here (at pbreview) and at pbnation. This jersey stands well among others like Dye, Proto, which are also more expensive. Also The 08 Distortion looks cooler, the color design is plain awesomness!

I have used this jersey for 2 months now (5-6 games) in 80-90F degree environment.

It is very breathable on the sides, which is enough to keep you cool. It has a 1/4 inch porolone kind of padding on the arms and shoulders, which gives good bouncing but not gonna save you from bruises. :-)

The material is quality, stitches are good. I washed the jersey for 3-5 times by now and there is no significant wear so far.

I used a generic JT vest underneath for protection. Now I use (Planet Eclipse 09 Overload Jersey). Combined they still are not too hot and a great protection for temperatures up to 100F.

My only complain is the sizing! I am 5'11" 180lbs normal BMI (not fat). However:
- Planet Eclipse 08 Distortion Jersey- size Large - is a bit too BIG. It look huge like on a hockey player. LOL
- Planet Eclipse 09 Overload Jersey - size Large - is TOO SMALL. It is too tight and constricting. So I had to exchange it to XLarge.

So beware and try it before buying it if possible. Otherwise be prepared to exchange it at an additional charge.
Conclusion: Highly recommend it for anyone with $30-40 budget. Thanks to all you guys, who reviewed it before me! I could not have chosen it without you!

Products Used:
Dye C7, PE distortion 06s
Marker Setup: ego7, nxs stubby 48/45, v35
Strengths: Padded in all the right areas.
Vented for those hot days.
Very lightweight, but protective.
Weaknesses: Too many logos, i feel like I'm advertising.

Review: It's very nice and comfortable. I play front so I'm always diving and this jersey definitely has the protection. I played yesterday in 80 degree weather and this jersey vented really nice. While everyone was tearing there jerseys off after the games I was laughing because I was the only one not about to pass out. This jersey is very stylish, protective, and lightweight. It's perfect for any tournament player.
Conclusion: Definitely buy this product. It fits every type of player especially the tournament players.
