Review: Size
I have a Large and my hands aren't the biggest, I'd say they are just about average sized so if you are planning to buy them online, better off just finding some place who have it and try them on first so your sure. I thought I would be a medium but I tried them on and Large is how I went and they are very snug on my hands.

Looks
For sure as soon as you see it you know how good they look. Design is nice and have a nice choice of colors. Wished they had a blue though, but can't have everything you want.

Feel
Feels very nice, your thumb fits nice and none of your fingers feel compressed together. You should be able to walk the trigger nice with these without loosing any bps.

Extras
It is very breathable. The inside of the glove is kind of like a sweatband, so your hands should never sweat but at the same time the sweat band material isn't thick so it shouldn't make your hand feel compressed. The gloves also look like they have holes in them when you look closely but thats just the ventilation of the gloves to make it cool for your hands while soaking in the sweat.

Theres also two padded clothes things on the gloves and can be either on your palm or on the back of your hand depending on which hand you put the glove on. No it doesn't say this glove is for the Right hand and this glove is for the Left, its just all preferece on where you want to put it. And I would guess these are to wipe paint when you get splatters on your mask or get hit.

Downsides
Really wished that the design wouldn't peel so easily. Would be nice if it was on the glove like how designs are printed on t shirts instead of this way thats like a silicon gel, which for some people with different grips might help with the hold of the gun but peeling is an issue without a doubt. Also when I put the strap on I feel as if its not on securely I haven't had any problem with it coming undone or anything. And when game time comes I'm just gonna tuck it into my jersey sleeve and it should be fine. It also comes with wristbands that you could just put on the wrist part so your sure the strap won't come undone.

EDIT:
Alright well I've finally played with these gloves a few times since I've gotten them and one thing I noticed is the fact that if your hands get sweaty and your touching the ground alot the gloves tend to bleed. What I mean is if you play woods and your hand is on the ground to help pull you up becuase your other hand is holding your gun and your grabbing gravel or w/e and your hands are sweaty it will bleed I noticed this at the end of the day when I took my left hand glove off and it was only the left hand because that was to help me move around. Also will probably happen to those who play the snake.

Also the designs don't peel as much as I thought it would, so I actually do have give it to SLY, I thought I would loose alot of the look of it after playing. Mine look fine, some peels here and there but nothing big enough to rip a huge chunk of it or make it look bad. Unless your constatly sliding off the break and your slide is real hard to rip the crap outta these designs lol.
Conclusion: Overal the gloves are nice and I would recommend them if you don't want gloves with the fingers covered. Either these gloves or the gaunlet gloves for those who just end up cutting the fingers. And you shouldn't have any complains about padding not doing its job because I think it feels thick enough to take impact of the shot. 8/10 for me because of how I like the gloves, but then again everyone has different preferences.
