Hi Guys

   I was looking for some advice on a good pair of paintball pants that offers crotch protection.  I usually wear a cup but its digs in, and is very uncomfortable.  So I took it off.  The very next game I was double tapped in the groin, and I wasn't right for the rest of the day. 

   I was hoping to find a pair of paintball pants that will offer some good protection at a reasonable cost.  Any recommendations are appreciated  

ETA:  Also Im not sure on sizing.  Im a size 36 waist and 32 length.  Do paintball pants run small like jerseys do?  I know my jerseys are a XXL, but I take a XL t-shirt

Thanks

Do you currently have pants? If you do I would recommend some slider shorts.

I have BDUs only.  I looked into the shorts, but for the price I wonder if a set of pants will be better..?..

you are going to want slider shorts and paintball pants, however nothing will beat a cup in terms of groin protection, well at least anything paintball related. However getting hit there rarely happens

Buy a foam cup and wear it in a jock strap. I can provide a link to a site that sells them cheap once I get home.

Any pant that is over $50 should have great crotch protection. Even my cheap $30 pants had decent protection. At the least it will have 2 think flaps doubled over then folded onto itself for protection.


As per size go to any website of the manufacture of the pant and check their sizing guide.
