CCI Phantom w/ vert air kit, 18inch muzzle break barrel, collapsible t stock, custom feed tube
Strengths: Actually breathable

Full fingered gloves doesnt bother me with these
Kevlar is nice toutch
Weaknesses: The rubber parts over the index finger knuckle dont hold up
Cant cut the fingers
Review: The Invert gloves are really nice, and actually fit my hand perfectly, so i didnt have to end up cutting the fingers.

you might think that wearing full fingered gloves might get hot in addition to a long sleeve shirt, long pants a hat and mask, but actually there really not that bad, somewhere in the stitching is mesh that allows air to go in and out of the gloves, making it suprisingly comfy.

These are also really light weight, and actually weigh less than my half-fingered armored gloves.

Now, because the fit is so nice with these, i can shoot just as fast with the full fingers than i can with no gloves at all (confirmed by ROF/chronograph) which is a HUGE bonus because nobody (unless there into that sort of thing) likes getting shot in the fingernail, which incase you havent had the pleasure of before, ill let you in on a secret, it HURTS.

Also, the kevlar gel grips/padding on the glove is also a nice touch, because it allows you to get a better grip on your gun, but also does something else, look up at the picture, then look at the palm. do you see those two funky looking circle things? they look like mesh, but there not, there actually two gel filled pads, so when you run and slide, and you stick your hand out to break your fall, your palm isn't going to take any damage! also, the Kevlar makes your glove bulletproof (don't hold me to that)

And now for the weaknesses, Unfortunately as cool as the gloves look with the rubber pattern runing all up and down your fingers, the ones over your knuckles wont last. mine have already started to come off the glove, and they'll only be on there for about another week.

Also, ive learned from a friend who's fingers were too long for these gloves that if you plan to cut them, its really a bad idea because the stitching of the fingers begins to come undone.
Conclusion: I would recommend this product to just about anyone, because there not too expensive, and there basically overall really good gloves. but i gotta give this a 9 because i really wasnt happy with the stylized rubber comming off practically the first two weeks that ive had the gloves
