    I almost always wear one. I play often enough that, if I didn't, I'd almost always be covered in bruises. Plus, if you've ever taken four or five balls to the shoulders in a mugging.... ;)

    Man up and wear one ?? only a fool doesn`t !! I`ve found over the years of the different types that Empire make the best one ( short sleeves ) and now also the Planet Eclipse similar , all the soft types that Dye and others do, seem to make you feel the hits more, It`s not so much for you Not feeling the hits but hopefully to have the Balls bounce off you, The best bit of kit I would recommend is the Elbow Pads, now this you will see over time ? a huge amount of balls bouncing off you to keep you in the game.

    i personally cant stand them ! with the quality of paint now its going to break regardless and i would much rather feel comfortable playing over getting a 1 in 1000 bounces :)

    Not only that jerseys nowadays are so padded anyway there is no point

    I've owned a couple - couldn't get along with them. I'd say only invest in one if you already have everything else.

    In my opinion, knee pads are far more useful than a bounce vest.

    I think elbow pads could be a better option for me, my main concern was that a bounce vest would restrict me a little, so yeah.... Elbow pads It will be!! (For now!) cheers for the input guys
