Products Used:
The only other glove I've used has been some thrashed old hard plastic-backed fingerless gloves which were borrowed from a friend. These were rubbish, basically. But better than nothing on the day.
Marker Setup: Don't own a marker due to idiotic conservative Australian gun laws preventing me from taking any marker I buy home from the field..
Strengths: Build quality, materials and price are all key strengths.
Weaknesses: Design faults are the only weaknesses, as listed below.
Review: These gloves are good quality but contain a few fundamental design flaws.

Upsides
They are well-made from appropriate materials. The stitching appears strong and reinforced correctly, and they have elastic in the right places allowing for movement largely without restriction. The velcro is heavy-duty and should last the entire life of the gloves. They are available in a range of colours and aren't horribly gaudy and garish like so many gloves for sale at the moment.

Flaws
The fingers are not long enough. I have large hands and though I bought size XL the fingers are not nearly long enough. This is annoying as gloves which have slightyl too-long fingers are more accommodating than those with stubby little finger lengths that result in the webbing being level with your second knuckle.

Another design fault (which should have been picked up in testing) is that the rubber armour on the back of the index finger tends to rub against the back of your second knuckle. After an entire day of paintball you will have a blister unless you twist the finger of the glove to one side so the rubber is running along the side of your finger instead of the back. This shouldn't be necessary and is annoying.

Conclusion: Summary
Worth a buy, depending what you pay for them. I paid $16 Australian and wouldnt pay any more than that. This equates to about $10 US, so if you see these for more than that, keep walkin' is my advice to you.
