How to protect my upper head ?

Hi,

I went to my first cqb game and it was a lot of fun. Except I got shot by a 3 bb shotgun in the upper head and it hurl a lot. It even bleed a little.

What are you using, a cap a full face mask ?

I am not sure how to have a better protection, full face mask could impair my visibility and/ or get too hot.

Thank for your suggestion

yep, helmets... I always said nah I don't need a helmet, etc. & then I got one to easily accomodate a face mask & the amount of hits you take to head is surprising.

with a helmet you can just forget and move on.

P.S if you find yourself @ an outdoor game in the bush somewhere, the helmet is great for keeping all those pesky tree branches off your head.

Just don't forget to call your hits otherwise many more bbs are headed for your noggin

Big +1 on the helmet...especially for cqb games

CQB= helmet
Not just for close headshots, but in real building where we often play in, there is often shit suspended from the ceiling or falling on you.

that's enough for BBs.Helmets are bulky bullet magnets.
caps keep the light from going in your eyes and headbands keep the sweat from running down your face.
Helmets do nothing of that and are like a balloon over your head.

I also recommend a helmet as well, both for bb protection, and as Fox said, for bump protection.

That said, there are a number of types of soft head wear that will protect your head to an extent. I often wear a boonie had, which catches the rounds, as long as its not too tight.

I never played with an helmet... I have a collection of condor baseball caps though.

What I will never play without now is a mesh mask to protect my teeth, ever since a single bb shot from a pistol broke my front tooth in half. 300$ could've been better invested than in dental repair.

I usually wear a ball cap with a few velcro patches. I haven't had an issue yet. Helmets seem really stuffy as it prevents quite a bit of airflow. I feel like I'm gonna overheat in them too fast.

I wear a helmet, but if you don't want to wear one, something like these would work
