Empire 2008 Contact SE Paintball Jersey

That’s the latest Empire edition – The Contact 08 SE jersey. It is, as you already know, the attempt to upgrade the Contact 07 one. Have they succeeded or just like with the pants they only added up something little and boost up the price a lot. Guess you have to see the jersey features to find out:
• Fitted Thumb hole loops on the cuffs to help keep the jersey in place when you dive and protect your palms for those that refuse to wear gloves. We have alos added micro fiber to backs of the cuffs to remove any unwanted splatter from your goggles!
• Reinforced warrior pad zones. The contact jersey covers paintball specific zones with a light layer of cushion when you are in the actual shooting/playing position. Your outer wrist and deltoid are most exposed in game situations so that’s what we’ve protected.
• Bottle Gripz tm Silicone Empire logos on the shoulders and arms. These help you keep your tank steady against your shoulder in today’s high action games
• Micro-ribbed cuffs to easily slip over your ventz elbow pads and gloves
• High output mesh venting on the chest and under arms. Being hot and uncomfortable is nobody’s idea of fun. We vent the hot zones for you, you just worry about winning
• 4-way stretch for a full range of motion
• Besides looking phenomenal, they make you play better, get good grades in school, shoot faster and get more chicks (eventually)
• Silicone Screened Empire Logo on the tail of the jersey to help grip your harness and keep it in place
• Available in sizes SM, M, LG, XL
Does that sound familiar to you? Cause to me it does…it’s like I’m reading the previous review. Not that it’s a bad thing…as I said the Contact 07 is a great jersey. But wait till you see the price – $64.95. so according to my accounts the thumb hole loops on the cuffs and the few extra colors they’ve added cost nearly 15 dollars if we take the more expensive black and digi camo versions of the Contact 07. Nice job. But yet again if they’ve tricked you to buy the Contact 08 SE pants why not get the jersey, too. Let me just tell you the colors selection – black, blue, desert camo and red. And if you’ve got the pants LTD edition they haven’t forgotten about you, too. Here we have the jersey complements to those pants in legion, fire and ice, again for a higher price – $69.95. That’s what you get (or should I say give) when you want the best.
