The Dye barrel sock is very sleek and nice looking. It is over-sized and easy to slip on and off the barrel even with your arms full and gloves on. Its strap is strong with a great sliding clasp which adjusts the strap to a length that is convenient. I am impressed with the fact that the clasp holds strong without moving out of adjustment, which even ads to the safety and functionality of this product. The fabric that this sock is constructed from was unable to withstand an accidental shot without a small hole developing that will most likely grow larger each time a shot is fired into it. This is a result of there being no reinforcement at the end of the sock where the paintball impacts. Looks can deceive... there is stitching that prevents the barrel tip from resting at the strong reinforced section. This barrel sock; unlike its neoprene counterparts, cannot be turned inside-out to clean which makes it a little less convenient. The stitching that holds the strap to the sock is poorly done, I won't be surprised when the strap comes flying off when I sinch it down.
The bottom line is that a barrel sock is simple and has a simple function to complete. I would recommend any of the brands mentioned in my "similar products" before the DYE barrel sock for higher quality & convenience without compromise to functionality. Due to the fact that this product is intended to catch inadvertently fired paintballs... and was unable to do so without ripping, I give a 4/10. (4= less than average)
Recommend this product to your opponents and watch them burn in agony!
