Only come in marpat
Terry cloth thumb is useless
I bought these gloves because they were the only non marpat article of clothing I had left to get, and they were the first digi cam pb glove I had found.
Over all quallity of these gloves is aewsome. They have a good thick gel on the knuckles, and the neoprene is thick aswell. They have a cool looking BT symbol in silicone on the palm of them. They have a terry cloth thumb suposedly for wiping your lense. I have had these gloves for a long time now, and they have been in the washer with my other clothes, they are still holding up well, much better than the cheap jt powers.
Half Finger: I listed this as a strength, I perfer half finger gloves because I like the finger response. Some may perfer the added protection of a full finger, and find this a weakness.
Camo: I wear full spec ops digi camo clothes, none of the articles from Special ops match each other exactly anyways, but these gloves do match to them all pretty well, not perfect, but good enough to not be tacky.
One awesome feature of these gloves is machine washability. Sweat, snow, and sweat dirtied my gloves up pretty quick, I was relieved to see the package say machine washable. I have probably washed them 5 times in ~6 months or more, and they are still holding up great.
The Gel knuckles are sweet. They provide a lot of protection, I have taken 2 hits to the knuckles since I got these, and I barely felt them. When you push on them you feel a lot of deflection, but still a thick rubbery layer between you and the ball.
These gloves only come in Marpat. It would be nice to see them in other colors of even black. The BT sniper gloves are a full finger black, but they don't have the awesome knuckle padding like these do.
If you sweat remotely or put your hand on the ground, do not try to use the cloth thumb, I did once when my friend was spray N' prayin. through brush, and it streaked bad.. only made things worse. If you take a substansial hit, they are worthless also.
They have two tabs to take them offon the middle two fingers, these are handy, but the gloves still kinda come off hade cuz the outside fingers hang on.
Awesome Product over all, I am giving them a 10 because they are essentially everything I wanted in a glove.
