Review: The moment I put these on, I knew I wasn't keeping them. The insides are full of inconsistent stitching, making them uncomfortable, with very little padding or protection in some areas, while having too much in others.

The first time I bent my fingers into a fist (and no, they weren't too small for me), they lycra knuckles began to tear! Talk about cheap. Some of the other stitching around the gloves began to create some 'runs' in the fancy shiney material here and there on the gloves. The other seams don't look like they'd hold up to much more, with their single-row, crooked stitching and thin thread usage.

The tiny and largely useless rubber pads on the fingers are hardly held on by anything at all. The threads keeping them in were miniscule.

When I picked up my paintball marker, the feel of the trigger and the handle was num, while my grip on it was totally lessened.

The velcro wrist closure sticks to just about every part of the glove, causing piling in the fabric, and it is also hardly held on by much at all.
Conclusion: Definitely not what I was looking for. Cheap construction, but good (however temporary) functionality.
