The Angel glove is ergonomically sculpted to fit with a second skin feel. Every materiel in the glove will stretch, even the palm. The glove is vented throughout, from the palm to the tips of the fingers, to produce the most comfortable fit possible. This glove does not compare to any other paintball glove. Elements or the Worlds top hand protection used in Extreme sports have been taken in, and new designs added to create a dedicated paintball glove with no expense spared, no advantage overlooked, and no corners cut.
Micro-Mesh venting on the sides of fingers is used for the first time in Paintball. While most glove manufacturers generally use Lycra in this area this materiel is very sweaty as it cannot be properly perforated. The Micromesh side-panels on the Angel gloves fingers allow major airflow to the hand with only minimal motion required to activate this flow.
Coolmax loose-weave mesh is used on the panels on the backs of the fingers. These panels are designed to stretch without tearing, thin breathable padding is used for extra protection
Knuckle protection is provided by 4mm ergo-creased Aeroprene panels. These panels are perforated to prevent sweating, and retain a body-sculpted memory for the Second Skin feel.
Centre knuckle extremities are additionally protected with a TPR Angel moulding for crucial protection, while creating zero impediment on movement.
Knitted mesh at the base of the glove provides the maximum airflow and protection available, anywhere. This highly technical materiel creates a cushion without the conventional use of padding, which cuts off airflow.
The glove is fastened with an Aeroprene cuff with Velcro fastenings and an integral knitted mesh window, sealing the glove against dirt or debris. A TPR rubberised logo-patch protects major arteries in the wrist that would otherwise be exposed
The coloured piping used on the back of the glove delivers protection and flexibility through an elasticised ecto-skeleton.
The Adductor Pollocis (Thumb Web) is the main interface between Hand, Glove and Marker, effectively creating the shooting platform from which the marker is fired. The Angel glove grips your marker closer and more comfortably that any other glove, due to dedicated body-mapping with the paintball player in mind.
Ultra flex rubberised logo’s are used throughout, offering maximum protection, freedom of movement, and style, without sharp edges or burst zones.
The Palm or the Angel Glove is constructed from the very finest Pittards carbon-fibre impregnated leather. Pittards, a UK company, make the most expensive, sought after and performance realising palm fabric money can buy, as used by Formula one drivers, top Indie-car racers, and Professional golfers. This materiel is only .6mm thick, but despite this is amazingly strong, has a low profile feel that puts you in touch with your marker like never before, and is second only to human skin in its amazing grip characteristics. Minimal palm padding is used only on potential callous area’s, the Leather is perforated and will stretch across the palm to give the Second Skin moulded feel. Sticky-Grip print is incorporated on the trigger fingers for enhanced control.
An extended wrist design and Kevlar re-enforced heel patch provide extra protection when sliding. The performance palm leather is also extended around the side of the hand
The WDP Performance Fit Glove is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Very comfortable, look good
Pilling starts on all fingers. "A" on trigger fingers come off
Very comfortable glove, and not to bad if you dont care what they look like. I've only used about four or five times and the "A" on one of the fingers came all the way off. I think the others are starting too. Probably the most comfortable out of other gloves.
Some Gander Mountain crappy plastic gloves - felt like crap and were much worse than these gloves

fingers don't need to be cut (personal preference)
Hurt when you get hit in the palm
starting to rip
I haven't had these gloves very long only since christmas. But i have played with them one weekend and they felt very nice. I was able to shoot perfectly fine w/o cutting the fingers off and I was shooting normal lanes. But one game I was the last one left against two more guys. I shot one guy in the hopper but he didnt kno he got hit so he never went out and then he shot me in the head. I raised my hand and i got poped right in the palm of the glove and maaan did that hurt idk what that guy below is talking about but man it hurt really really bad. I might jst be a wuse or that guy might have even been shooting hot im not sure but i kno it hurt. Then after that weekend when i went home to wash them i noticed there were several holes in the leather and the fingers tips. Im not sure if it came like that or what but it was weird. Also when i washed them they didnt get clean from getting hit in the hand, but neither did any of my other gear for some reason i think something was wrong with my washer that night though.
Overall they are very nice gloves but if they do fall apart I will buy different gloves not these. But for the $15 i paid for these they were amazing. Try a pair and see how you like them.
I got these gloves because they have no plastic crap such as the hard rubber or anything like that. These have mesh so it moves with your hand and fingers. It has venting on the fingers and on the palm. IT also has A's on the trigger fingers. It's palm has soft leather so it's comfortable and protective.
Used these gloves for about 4 months now. And their falling apart. All the fingers have holes in them. This is the second pair i have, the first pair even had holes in them right out of the bag, so i got new ones.
They look cool, fit well, and are very comfortable.
But at this price, they should be stronger and last longer.
Buy these if you have the money to buy new ones every 3 months.

a little bit short on your waist.
other than that: NONE
I got my angel gloves as a X-mas gift, and I have been using them EVERY SINGEL TIME when I play.. They fit so good, and are so nice when getting hit on your hand... as a front that happens a LOT in the snake ;)
If you are concerned about your physical well beeing, get these gloves... the softness when getting hit on the hand is amazing. you can barely feel it sometimes.
if your have the money.. buy them. the feel good, and make hits on the hands feel good.
