Review: These are the first gloves I've used and they worked beautifully for quite some time. They allow a great amount of flexibility for your fingers and do protect your hand fairly well from paintballs. They also look pretty snazzy.

But after a few months of use, I noticed that the velcro from the strap would catch on the fingertips if you weren't careful and really cause them to fray. In addition, pulling on the strap to velcro them on is dicey as mine ripped and tore off completely - and no I wasn't pulling too hard on them.

That being said, they are still usable and are now my back-up pair (or for friends) as they still do the job. But that strap pulling off sucked and now one glove will always be loose. Perhaps it's just my pair, however.
Conclusion: I found mine fairly cheap (~$15) and I think they're worth that amount. Nothing too spectacular about them, but they are comfortable, flexible, and will protect your hand quite well. The fraying of the fingertips distresses me a bit and I wonder at its longevity, however. If the strap on mine was just bad and they are, on average, well made then add 2 points to the overall score.
