Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Copied from the manufacturer's site:
Invert has followed the same path as our predecessors at Empire paintball and pushed hard to give you the best high-tech lightweight protection and comfort that we could develop. Invert gloves are designed to protect without sacrificing style and form.

* Kevlar Gel palm pads where you need it most
* Breathable Airprene construction
* Silicone palm logo for extra grip
* Medical Velcro closure with gusset to keep the dirt out
* Lycra hinged fingers and thumb. Again, we know how important it is for you to become one with your marker. We took every consideration in flex -- especially in the thumb, to make sure you don’t even realize you have gloves on.
* Available in sizes: Y, S, M, L, XL.
* Colors: Urban, Woodland, Red and Blue
Product Availability 
The Invert SS Gloves are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

Products Used:
i dont know who makes them, but there armored gloves for woodsballers
Marker Setup: Invert mini, 14" FREAK kit, empire B2, and Pure Energy 45-45 Hp tank

CCI Phantom w/ vert air kit, 18inch muzzle break barrel, collapsible t stock, custom feed tube
Strengths: Actually breathable
Lightweight
Full fingered gloves doesnt bother me with these
Kevlar is nice toutch
Weaknesses: The rubber parts over the index finger knuckle dont hold up
Cant cut the fingers
Review: The Invert gloves are really nice, and actually fit my hand perfectly, so i didnt have to end up cutting the fingers.

you might think that wearing full fingered gloves might get hot in addition to a long sleeve shirt, long pants a hat and mask, but actually there really not that bad, somewhere in the stitching is mesh that allows air to go in and out of the gloves, making it suprisingly comfy.

These are also really light weight, and actually weigh less than my half-fingered armored gloves.

Now, because the fit is so nice with these, i can shoot just as fast with the full fingers than i can with no gloves at all (confirmed by ROF/chronograph) which is a HUGE bonus because nobody (unless there into that sort of thing) likes getting shot in the fingernail, which incase you havent had the pleasure of before, ill let you in on a secret, it HURTS.

Also, the kevlar gel grips/padding on the glove is also a nice touch, because it allows you to get a better grip on your gun, but also does something else, look up at the picture, then look at the palm. do you see those two funky looking circle things? they look like mesh, but there not, there actually two gel filled pads, so when you run and slide, and you stick your hand out to break your fall, your palm isn't going to take any damage! also, the Kevlar makes your glove bulletproof (don't hold me to that)

And now for the weaknesses, Unfortunately as cool as the gloves look with the rubber pattern runing all up and down your fingers, the ones over your knuckles wont last. mine have already started to come off the glove, and they'll only be on there for about another week.

Also, ive learned from a friend who's fingers were too long for these gloves that if you plan to cut them, its really a bad idea because the stitching of the fingers begins to come undone.
Conclusion: I would recommend this product to just about anyone, because there not too expensive, and there basically overall really good gloves. but i gotta give this a 9 because i really wasnt happy with the stylized rubber comming off practically the first two weeks that ive had the gloves

Strengths: Durable

kevlar pads
Weaknesses: The velcro on wrist doesnt keep your jersey in place when moving around.
Review: I bought these gloves because i was tired of half fingered jt gloves. i got shot in the hand off the break and i almost didnt realize i was shot. reduced the bruising i used to get when falling on my hands and getting shot between the fingers.

they are very flexible and allow for better feel of the trigger if you like walking triggers especially the techt fang.

like i mentioned above in the weaknesses:
The velcro on wrist doesnt keep your jersey in place when moving around.
i dont know if my jersey is too small, its a XL and i usually where L, and the gloves are a Large, it might just be something that im not doing right, so its not going against my rating, its just something i have to work out myself.

the colors i have are perfect for woodsball, black with red and dont seem to give me away.

also the bit of material on the knuckles is good for cleaning goggles w/o scratching them.(if thats what they were meant for, i dont know. maybey somebody can clarify that for me?)
Conclusion: The gloves are definately worth more than the money i paid for them. great gloves, and hope they last for years to come.

Review: I got these gloves for christmas a lil over a year ago and there still in perfect condition. they're warm, light and strong i've worn them every time i've been ballin since then and they're still in great shape. i once wore them while i was biking to work in the late autumn and my hands were still quite warm. they look good the plastic parts protect a good portion of your hand. the grips on the inside are very helpful and work well but they're starting to come off mine but i have had them for a year so there isn't really a problem with that. the only real problem with them is that i dunno how to wash them as i'm not sure if i can pu them in a washing machine so needless to say after a lot of play and wiping hits off your gun or clothes they get pretty grundged up however i noticed that playin in the rain or snow cleans them pretty well ;)
Conclusion: Invert makes agood solid glove that fit snugly protect your hands keep them warm and look sick nine outa ten for only two small problems

Products Used:
Hatch swat shorty gloves
Marker Setup: BT-4 Iron horse
Apex barrel
Ricochet AK loader
specter one point sling
Strengths: good grip, good protection, strong Velcro
Weaknesses: White detailing,
rubber not stitched
Review: I definitely approved of the rubber/latex on the backs of the hands, and at the same time the places that don't need coverage, (basically anything that would be in contact with the gun if you were hit) had a very thin breathable material that made it less bulky for weapons handling.
Now, the rubber part that I like so much for protection doesn't appear to be held on particularly tightly, i would have preferred some stitching. BUT, I am used to real life operator gloves, and these are a fair paint ball equivalent. My main gripe is the white invert logo and detailing. Not tactical at all, I actually colored over mine with black marker.
Conclusion: I think this is a good glove for any kind of paintball, but if you are a dedicated woodsballer you might want to have a black magic marker handy.

Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month

Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: invert mini
evlution 3
ans 68/4500 w/ empire tank cover
Strengths: Kevlar palm
Padding
Comfortable
No restriction to movement
Grip
Weaknesses: Might have to cut off finger tips if you have short fingers
Review: Great gloves. It has very nice protection from shots. First time i played with them, i got shot on the hand and it didn't hurt as much as it should have. Another good thing about them is how comfortable they feel. Sometimes i forget they are on. I also like the silicone grip and kevlar padding. Also, when I first got them, I loved the lycra hinged fingers and thumbs. But the sad thing about it is I had to cut the tips off because i have short fingers so the excess on the tips affected my playing.
Conclusion: It's a great buy. It's cheaper than most gloves and it won't let you down when you're low on cash and need a good pair that won't disappoint you.

None, my 1st pair of real gloves...
Marker Setup: ETek Ego (Night)
VLocity
DYE Ultralight 14"
50/3000 Worr Gass HPA Tank
Strengths: Comfy, Good Grip, Microfibre!, Padded Palm
Weaknesses: Silicon grip peels off kinda...
Review: (1st review for this! Woo)

Alright, I got these on boxing day, to go with the Invert Pants, and I wasnt dissappointed at all. First thing I noticed, they fit like a glove, well, they feel comfortable, like theyre hugging my hand. Theyve got microfibre on the back, which is cool, and handy if you catch a little bit of spray... They gripped very well, even when wet with paint, plus with the padding, shots to the hands wont hurt much. The kevlar gel palms are great when sliding, less stress on your hand, and it feels oh so smooth when you're gliding along the field with em... Another great thing about these, is it doesnt restrict your finger movement, which is always good.
Conclusion: Basically, Invert has hit the ground running with these great gloves. They look good, feel good, perform good, and can put up with all your shenanigans... Get yourself a pair.
