Hey guys, I'm a hipster and was wondering if a neck protecter will ever be a new trend?

I think it could be a stylish way to protect a very sensitive part of ur body.

No, because not enough people like them. I've been shot in the neck before, and it didn't hurt at all. So for me, it's just a useless thing to have. The way to make it cool is to get a ton of people to use it, but I don't see enough people using it for it to become cool.

I agree. I think some pro teams need to start wearing them and make it stylish!

Hey guys, check that guy out. His neck is so Agg! :dodgy:

I don't think it will work. And I get hit in the neck and it's not all that bad, so I also don't see the point in making this:

look cool. I think it's just silly no matter what.

It looks a bit dumb and I can't stand the feeling of something around my neck. I burn turtle neck sweaters on first sight and barely tolerate wearing a tie when I need to.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Actually I said the exact opposite. And really? Since when is paintball about being stylish? Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes. :P

Nope, for several reasons. It's uncomfortable as fuck and you look like a goofy version of goofy. :rolleyes:

I thought hipsters are broke ass since they spend all their monies on DM13, and cannot afford anything else?

I jest, I wear a neck protector. I've saw just great welt on buddy's neck after my best friend pegged him in the neck that made me wear a neck protector. One loaner one and a PE one for me, because I'm a little bitch that gets tv airtime since I go to paintball clinics

If they had cool designs on them I think they would be more popular.

who was shot in the neck?
i've had literal chunks of skin blown off my neck and it didn't hurt. i would never wear a neck protector, feels extremely awkward to me.

My friend wears a neck protector because the first time we played he got shot in the neck and had a bruise that looked like a hickey.

Why did the hipster burn himself?

He ate soup before it was cool.

This is now a hipster joke thread.

Why did the hipster move away from his beach home? It was too current.
How much does does a hipster weigh? An instagram.
Why do hipsters love ice? Because it was water before it was cool.
