DIY How to make your own Paintball Armor / Vest for under $10

Do you like Paintball but don’t want those ugly injuries around your chest and back? You can always buy an armor, let’s say a military vest for about $70 to $200 in a military thrift store. Or even use a motorcycle vest which is not only very expensive but also heavy. So I figured, why not make your own DIY paintball armor vest that is light, effective, and also very efficient.

The solution is a solid rubber vest. Just use a runner band, I bought mine in Home Depot for $7 and velcro from Walmart for $2.67. A little work about 15 minutes and you are done: A light and cheap paintball vest. Of course you can use this perfectly for air guns and airsoft as well. Especially for airsoft vests, this is the perfect body protection.
