I bought these on sale somewhere for $10 or less, cant remember, so naturaly they were a steal, but I wasnt sure what I was getting exactly. Previously for paintball I used some gloves I bought at wal-mart, not really any protection from paintballs, but kept my hands from getting poked by sticks when I crawled in the weeds.
Well let me tell you they are amazing! First off, the look super cool... dunno if thats me, but the outside rubber armor looks tight. They're a little stiff at first, but give them a few games and a few washings and they are super flexable.
Getting hit hardly hurts, even when you arent hit on the rubber armor, the trigger fingers can be cut off so you can move those fingers better for firing the trigger of your marker. Personally I never did it and was still able to fire fairly fast. There's stitching around where you cut so that the cloth doesnt wear out.
The only parts I don't like:
When the gloves gets to velcro, it sticks, then starts to fray when you take it off. My paintball pants anf velcro and it kept getting caught when I took them off, washed them, etc, and now the glove is frayed everywhere... nothing wrong yet just looks less attractive.
The rubber armor will come off during a washing machine/dryer, so hand wash. It might even come off then.
Great gloves for a cheap price, cant think of anything else you'd want in paintball gloves...
