I'll post this here. (Is there one? I couldn't find it.) How much safety equipment is necessary? I understand the need for things such as helmets, a decent pair of boots, and a sturdy pair of gloves. That being said, what should I be wearing? Elbow/wrist guards? A chest and back protector? Another question: Are jerseys really necessary? If their point is to reduce cuts/scrapes, could I get away with just wearing BDUs?
