Using the list

After miles of traveling it can be really frustrating arriving at a game to discover you have forgotten that one essential item of kit. Here is a list of what to take to a day’s paintballing. This is just a guide, you don’t have to stick strictly to the list as some items may not apply to you. There is also included a printable version for download so you can tick off items as they go into your equipment bag when your packing.
Its a good idea to keep it safe and reuse it when you pack up so you know you are taking away with you everything you brought.
