The DYE 03 Core Division Glove begins with an unparalleled anatomically correct fit. In glove design, fit is everything. The 03 Glove's jointed fingers are constructed of Neoprene with Lycra gussets, to give you maximum comfort and flexibility. The 03 Glove also features compression padded knuckles and polyurethane injected finger guards for extra protection. A hook and loop wrist fastener offers you the best fit possible, while keeping the dirt out. The 03 Glove palm is designed with a unique inner padding stitched to a soft durable clarino outer. Designed to form to your hand after you play, these gloves work in tandem with your 03 Sticky Grip.
The Dye Core Gloves are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
- Very comfy
- Great colors
- Great protection
- Great fit
- Great design
- Great air flow
Haven't encountered any yet and hope to keep it that way.
I bought these off of a kid at school and i was blown away at how far off the quality was. These gloves fit like real gloves. They don't slide off your hands. They also have a great feel to them too. And they are very breathable, keep your hands cool in the summer and warm when cold. I just cant believe they are so comfy. I definitely got a great deal on these cause i only payed 15 bucks for them and they are brand new! These are definitely an eye catcher and and object you must have.
Buy them. Don't ask why. I said so. (Comfy and i haven't encountered any problems yet.)

I got mine for $15 used, they seem realy nice. Very durable, and they look realy cool.
I have had some gloves that are realy weird feeling on your hands but as soon as I put these on I noticed that they fit realy nice. And the material doesnt seem to keep the heat in, so your hands stay nice and cool.
I would much rather have these than hard backs, one less thing for paint to break on.
Glove arnt that high tech, just find a pair that is cheap and fit nice.
I gave it a 10 because unless they were free they couldnt be any better.
Jt Gloves: A bit less snug, wore away much faster.
32 Degrees Gloves: sucked so much not even worth talking about

CP Flame Drop Foward

-Very impermeable to paint/water
-Keeps hands the right temperature
Not much, they took a bit of time to wear in
First of all, I just want to say that everything I have tried that is made by dye has been incredible. They are such a high quality brand that I reccomend everyone check out their stuff, now onto the gloves. When I first tried these gloves on my first impression was that they were very tight. Whether this be the size or the material they're made out of. They took a bit of time to wear in, but this is the only smal fault of this product. These gloves are incredibly durable. My previously owned JT gloves wore away with much less use than my current dye gloves have been exposed to. Also, the initial tightness of these gloves, thought a bit bothersome, make the gloves nice and snug on your hands. This makes it so there is no sliding around and no chafing. Secondly, these gloves are truely one-of-a-kind. They have padding and stickiness wherever it is needed and are prefectly designed for the sport of paintball. I even find myself using these gloves for other things such as wakeboarding and general wearing around. Lastly, these gloves are very nice looking. Although by no means a suprise due to the flashy look of all dye gear. I am truely impressed by these gloves and cannot wait for the new innovations Dye makes next!
I reccomend this product to anyone who is looking for a great pair of gloves. You do not even have to be rolling in cash either. These gloves are durable and effective while also being economically smart.

Excellent fit, good colours, good protection.
Slows fingers, black stains on hands.
These gloves are definately a good investment. Before I had these gloves, when I got shot in the hand I'd often find myself bleeding. After I got these gloves I found alot of balls simply bounced off the pads and I've had no stingers. The gloves do slow your fingers down, so when you're demanding a high rate of fire at all times, cut off your trigger fingers (or remove the rubber pads on the knuckles). Through wasing the gloves I've found that the colour (I use yellow) faded somewhat. Lastly through use of the gloves (I use them for everything) I have found that after a year of use the rubber pads on the fingers are starting to come off.
I do recommend this product, however before purchase try on the Dye C4 gloves to make sure know what you're buying. I'll be buying the C4 gloves soon, but still plan on using my Core gloves. They have done the trick for the last year, and will do so for a long time to come.

They look good!
Protection where needed
Insides rubs on wrist and itches/scratches
anyways, i got these gloves and i'm very please with them! besides dye makes them so you can expect a great product.
lastweekend when i went paintballing i got nailed on my middle finger right above my knuckle. i still have a circular shaped scab and it hurt a lot so i figured if i get gloves it might prevent those god awful stingers.
dye put padding where it counts. there is a rubber like padded on the knuckes and neoprene padding in between the knuckes (where i got hit) there is also the dye logo on the front and back portion which i found handy while pulling the gloves on due to it's rubber/sticky nature it's easy to grip and pull down.
of course with all gloves you do lose some dexterity and your touch isn't as good without them while walking your trigger, but i'd say it's a small price to pay for protecting your precious little hands!
the fit and feel of these gloves are perfect. one little annoyance that i found was, right by the velcro area on the wrist, the stitching rubs against my skin which irritates and annoys me, but other than that these gloves are great!
I would definately recommend picking these babies up for $18..... probably $25 w/shipping. the colors and sizes are limited to black/red, black/blue and black/yellow. good luck if you are gonna get these! i'm probably gonna pick up and extra pair for back up! these puppies get a solid 9 out of 10! no regrets buying these gloves at all!

These gloves look great and perform well for ruggedness, but cost too much and will dye your hands black if you sweat much. Due to the way the leather is dyed it causes sweaty or wet hands to turn black. You can't wash it off with normal soap and water either, but it usually fades in 2-3 days.
Other than the dying your hands problem, the gloves work great. The palms are thick and provide plenty of hand protection for front players who dive hands/head first. The back side works plenty fine in cold weather too. The velcro straps could be a little bigger to keep them strapped on, but I have little problems with them coming loose. Overall comfort is very good. Feels like they were molded from my own hands.
Product is fine and probably the most stylish of its competitors. The cost is high, but the quality is too. I would recommend only if you don't mind your hands being dyed black for awhile after use. Product gets a 7 for its high quality despite its shortcomings.

-provide good protection from shots to the hands
-basically paying for the dye name
The gloves have a nice look to them and come in a variety of colors, which is a plus especially if you want all your accesories to match. (i.e. pants, jersey, gun, etc.) They're not just for show however, they provide good protection from shots to the fingers and knuckles.
In my opinion these gloves are the best looking of all those on the market right now. I didn't give it a ten because they are a bit on the pricey side, as is most dye stuff.
Well, despite the fact I rarely ever wear gloves, these gloves are great. They look great. They match my jersey and my pants. They are also padded nicely. They cause bouncers, just like Dye's 03 Jersey and 03 Pants. They re also really comfortable. I wear them for nearly everything you need gloves for. I just don't wear them when I play paintball, which is kinda weird whe you think about it.
I love these gloves. They are great for everything you can do thatrequires gloves.

Although im not a supporter of Dye, I bought these gloves the beggining of last season because they were pretty cheap ($29.95) but I think I was given a deal. The raven gloves at the time were going for $35. They began falling apart by the end of the season. The leather canvas is peeling. There are holes in the material at the fingertips and still continue to leave my hands black from the leather EVERY time I use them. They are very comfortable but don't hold up in quality... Dye trademark I guess.
Try the new core gloves, they look to be better quality material. I would suggest 32 degrees, PMI or JT over Dye.

Fits like a glove. I've been using these gloves since day one...there tough on the field. They are easy to clean, just toss them in the laundry with you're jersey and pants and there clean and again and ready to be get dirty AGAIN. The only problem, when after playing a couple of games, they tend to leave black markings on my hands...maybe cause i have sweaty hands.
Its a Dye product, its tough and comfortable, looks good, and easy to clean.
