Review: When my son decided he wanted to start paintballing, I took him to the store. He bought himself these gloves, so I thought "what the hell, They're only like $10. I'll try them out." So I bought myself a pair too. Here's how they were:

Padding- They have some nice padding for such cheap gloves. I got shot in back of the hand once, and I barely felt it. The padding keeps your hands quite warm as well.

Feel- These gloves are actually quite comfortable. They aren't too tight, so you don't feel like they're on.

Price- You can get these at a proshop for around $10. That's not bad.

Fingers- The little half fingers are quite stiff. This makes it a little bit harder to walk your trigger in these gloves.

Quality- They are quite poorly made, but that is to keep them at $10. They fray very easily, but they won't fall apart or anything. Here are the materials: and what they are for:

50% Synthetic leather- That's for the padding.
25% P.V.C.- Again, for the padding.
5% Air mesh- There's a little bit around the pads, but they need more.
5% Terry- Normally used in towels, terry is what the thumb is made of.
5% Lycra- AKA spandex. Used in the wristband probably.
5% Foam- Under the pads.
5% Elastic- Also in the wrist.
5% Others- Everything else.

Bleeding- These gloves can bleed sometimes, which means the color comes out and onto your hand. The reason this happens is because the gloves do not breath well. This can cause your hands to sweat which makes the dye come out.
Conclusion: Good begginer or budget baller gloves.
