Keep hands cool, Looks great, Grippy, Durable
Really stiff untill broken in, Not best trigger feel.
Overall these gloves are pretty good when it comes to durability and looks. They excel when it comes to keeping your hands cool even in the middle of the summer. The added silicone grip on the palm is a key feature and allow for any gun to be gripped comfortably. The downfall though is that the finger tips are a bit too thick to get a good feel on the trigger but if you're like everybody else just cut them off and problem solved!

Feel, size, looks, knuckle cut lines
I got these gloves a couple months ago. They are good gloves and feel great on my hands. I cut the the index and middle fingers on each glove off. The gloves look good and have great grip on them. I truly recomend them to any snake player for extra grip on your gun. I think these gloves should be respected as some of the best on the market.
Great fit and feel, grip is great, Awesome gloves alltogether
Could use a little more padding around the knuckles
I play woodsball and I decided to give these gloves a try. They fit perfectly. An average male will fit into a large no problem. The main material of the glove is airprene, spandex and rubber I believe. The material comes in handy for wiping paint off your goggles.
If you get a perfect fit, than most people won't have any trouble shooting. Mine have no extra material around the fingers that can get caught in the trigger or anything.
These gloves are worth it. Plenty of padding on the outside and inside of the hand for crawling, and they are very flexible and comfortable. You will barely notice they are on.
EDIT: Over the winter I have actually been using these gloves to push grocery carts at work. The grip things around the bottom of the finger and palm are rubbing off, but it wasnt those that gave you grip, it was the material itself.
Good quality. Little expensive but it's Empire, so you can't complain too much. Good fit, good price, great strength. Works great for woodsball as well

Empire 06 Grind Gloves
VL Pro Pods
-Good For Walking
Here Are My Reasons For the Strenghs and Weaknesses
Light- hey what can i say their very light and flowwing
Comfy- these gloves are so comfy its unbelivable after 20 minutes you dont even remember your wearing them
Good For Walking- these gloves helped me multiply my shot, i dont have long enough fingers to fill the finger things so theres a bit at the end and you can bend it back after you pull the trigger. its hard to explain but it helped me BPS
Price- all paintball gloves have a pretty high price but this one is actually pretty decent
Nice Gloves, Worth the Price Of 49$ cuz These Gloves Own
-Very good quality all around
None that I have seen
Honestly I tried on about 10 different pairs of gloves, everything from Dye to generic brand and these were by far the most comfortable. I played one game with them so far but I was so impressed that I had to write this review. Flexible, durable, comfortable and just all around awesome for gloves in general. Best I've seen so far.
I would say if you need or want a pair of gloves from tournement play to recreation this is the way to go.
Looks, strength, comfort, grip and they are so light.
Price: at $44.95 CDN, they dont come cheap, but that is it
I was the one who origonally put in the word to this site to have the 2006 gloves posted as a product. When i finally got these gloves in the mail, i couldn't wait to try them out. Unfortunately, i forgot thenm in the car so i had to wait unitl the next time. However when that time finally came, it was a humid, warm cloudy day in June. With drizzle turning itsself on and off throughout the day. These gloves never failed me. At first, i was worried because they are so light, that they were just for show and not for why i bought them, but i was soon proven wrong. My hands were kept protected and warm and they even soaked sweat up better than i thought they would. They were very strong; i kept getting them caught in this clip on my vest that i use to hold my mask with when i am not wearing them. I simply just pulled my gloves out without reopening the clip and i was surprised to see not even a crease in the material of the plam (where i got them caught). This happened periodically thorughout the day. The other great feature about these gloves is the kevlar reinforcment on the ball of the hand (where your wrist meets your palm). These were excellent because you can fall back like i did prtect your hand without worrying about your gloves fraying. They are very good and i recommend them to anyone except tourney players or players with sensitive triggers because they do not allow for the fine motor skills nessacary to operate such a trigger (but dont take my word for it, i dont play tourney ball). Lastly, the grip on the gloves was excellent. While holding my gun, i new it wasn't going anywhere. I highly recommend this over a Dye Sticky grip as it gives you the necessary grip, with the added cool factor and protection. Plus it applies to all of yoru guns because you are wearing them.
Great gloves, highly recommend them to everyone except those who have sentive triggers such as walking triggers because the gloves might impair the fine motor skills nessecary to operate such a trigger. They get a 9 because i have not used them as much as i would have liked to yet, but if they continue to outperform as i have seen so far, they will get a 10.

Extreme rage half-finger (looked retarded, not enough protection on your fingers), cheapo walmart variety (like armor, lol- very tough, but not flexible, and they were only half-finger)
Tippmann a-5, opsgear G36c folding stock.
Durable Construction and materials, comfort, breathability, TOUGH, very high quality, look awesome
Kinda expensive- might need to cut fingers if you had a really light trigger
When I first got these gloves, I knew that they were tough, but I was still apprehensive about taking them in the woods- no more. In my second game with them, I ended up lowcrawling back and forth through about 20 feet of brush, up and down a hill side (was cozy, then had to come down to bunker some guy, went back up, etc.). they performed flawlessly. they were very comfortable, perfect fit, very tough, and also provided very good protection, better than many cloves w/ hard plastic coverings- I got hit in the knuckles and hardly felt anything. these gloves are a great buy for someone who goes back and forth between tourney and woodsball.
Hokay so i got rid of that story cuz it was long and im 2 lazy to edit it...so to make it short i got shot in the hands started bleeding decided 2 buy gloves
very flexible, good padding, not bulky at all, pads on the heel of your palm so wen u hit the ground it doesnt hurt, look cool so you be p3wning them fools n lookin good doin it
umm a little hard to shoot unless u cut off the top 2 fingers like i did
If you want a pair of gloves that is the best for only 35 bucks... BUY THESE NOW!!!!
a ten out of ten because of feel and style
