Products Used:
In my 5 year paintball "career", I've used BE, 32°, & JT gloves.
Marker Setup: Custom Built, Limited Edition Dust Blue WGP Orr-accle W/ Chrome E-Blade, Chrome WGP Black Magic Reg, Chrome Grip Feed Neck, Chrome Planet Eclipse NEXUS Upgrade Kit, Red KAPP Cosmetics, Chrome Shocktech Beavertail, 14" DYE Boomy, EGGY 2 & 45/45 Nitro Duck Tuff Skin HPA Tank W/ DYE Rhino Tank Cover.
Strengths: ~Looks.
Weaknesses: ~Price.
~Overpadded in some spots.
Review: I got a pair of the black and blue DYE C4 gloves for Christmas. Out of the package, I was greatly impressed with the workmanship involved in these. However, they aren't without their faults.

~Looks. These things look hot, I'd say that these are the best looking gloves in paintball today.
~Durability. They seem to be well put-together, there aren't any evident loose seams or stray threads.
~Protection. These things are padded like crazy, and they have kevlar(bullet proof material) palms! With these, you can expect to never again feel the "sting" of a hand shot. In fact, you'll get bounces off these things.
~Ventilation. These things are vented at the top of the palm and around the fingers. No more sweaty, stink hands!
~Sensi-touch finger tips. These little rubber nubs in the finger tips are supposed to increase sensitivity and provide faster response times and a quicker trigger finger. (Sure it sounds cool, but I'm not totally sure its legit.)

~Price. Maybe just a little too expensive.
~Overpadded in some spots. When I first wore this, I felt as if they were over padded in the finger tips. ...Combined with the padding and the sensi-touch nubs in the finger tips, I sort of felt like an alien. (Skinny fingers but fat finger tips.) I got used to this and its not really a problem now.
Conclusion: Overall, these are great gloves. They are well put-together and look hot, what more could you ask for? Sure they may be a little expensive, but it's another quality DYE product ... it's worth it! Buy now!

All you have to do is wash these gloves and it will make that over padded look and feel go away.

Thanks for your comment, I'll take note of that.

No problem just make sure you put them on after they get out of the dryer or they'll get all weird, but if that happens you just put them back in 5 more minutes then put them back on.
