Just some motocross gloves, which are too small for me. But they did do their job, and if you're too poor for such real paintball gloves as these, just buy some CCM Motocross gloves, I got mine for $7 (Canadian!)

-Doesn't hurt at all to get hit in the hand! Which could be bad cause you might not notice if you do... Already happened once.
-Can be cut to walk the trigger better, which I wouldn't do, mainly cause they're faaaaar too nice.
-Kind of stiff, but compared to my motocross gloves I was using, they're fine. I can walk the trigger like I had no gloves on, though, so that gives you an idea of what they're like.
-They stain, which is such a horrible blemish to their beauty. Yeah. Just when you've finished a match, don't go wiping off your hits with these on and you'll do fine. EDIT: After using them for god knows how many days of paintball and not washing them, I finally threw them in with the rest of my gear for a wash and they looked like new. They're awesome!
-Some of the fabric goes awry quick. Edit: After god knows how many games, I finally got a bit of fabric that's starting to rub off on the palm
-The velcro sticks to my teammates' packs. That's kinda funny, as it's really strong and whomever you're stuck to pulls you around for a bit.
Quite the glove. I do indeed suggest them for anyone, especially those who dislike being hit in the pinkies (I play violin for my monay, so broken fingers=broken wallet).
These were the gloves I bought over Evil ones, and they were cheaper by $5 also, which was a plus. The pair I have fit perfectly, and they do have different sizes. I have been hit several times in the fingers, and I felt absolutely nothing with these gloves, but that might be the adrenaline... Oh well. I highly suggest these gloves, but don't be a maniac and cut down the fingers! That would make them ugly... Only (real) problems so far is that they are easily stained, because of the white fabric. I'm not sure if they make a different colour than in the picture, so chances are if you buy these gloves they'll probably be like the ones in the pitcure.
The velcro sticking thing isn't too bad, because where the straps' velcro connects to the gloves' velcro is on the back of the glove, so it usually only happens when you trip and flail out. I've got problems with tripping.
Maybe if they didn't lose their beauty soooo quickly, I'd like them more.
Buy them, if you dislike hurting your fingers. Buy them if you play violin. Buy them if you are a gigantic hairy beast, assuming they have a size that fits. One improvement I'd like to see, though, would be a SP destroyer and maybe an LCD screen with eye and full auto mode, so your fingers go crazy. Also, a built in snack machine would be liked. Edit: And another nice option would be a thermometer, in case you don't have an Angel :P
