Very Flexible, Very Sensitive (no need to cut fingers off), Good Looking.
A little uncomfortable when you first put them on.
I went to my local shop earlier today, with the intention of getting a better marker bag, but after getting the bag, my eye was drawn to the gloves on the wall, so I took a look and asked to try on the Contact's. I was amazed how flexible they were and how sensitive the fingers where. So I picked em up as well and I am very happy with em. I Play every thursday, so after I play with em I'll update this review with the perfomance.
Get the gloves, they look good, there comfortable, flexible, sensitive, you dont have to hack off the fingers and there fairly inexpensive. I give it a 9 since nothing deserves a 10...

Easy to clean
Good things come in small packages and this is true with these gloves they are great. Way better then being shot in the hand. there a bit pricy but there defenitly worth it! I have easily been able to clean blue yellow green and pink paint off of them(note that that was all splatter except for one shot.Im not that much of a noob)
what are you doing quit playing with your barrel and go get them!!!!

Nice and tight
Kevlar palm padding
Kind of need to be broken in
looks (for some people)
My first impression was wow these look really nice and give you good protection. as soon as i put them on they fit pretty tight which is what i like in my gloves. The fingers flex really well and im not planning on cutting these fingers, the thumb could have a little more give however. After wearing around the gloves for a while i noticed that the seems on top of the fingers get kind of uncomfortable which lends me to believe that they just need to be softened up and broken in. as soon as i showed them a couple of people said that the palms looked like poop what with the leather and all but i like it plus you never see the palm of a glove.
The silicone grips where a very nice touch they keep your hand firm on your grips and when you want to wipe your mask it cleans easy. the Kevlar on the bottom of the palm was a really good idea andit looks clean too. these gloves definitely wont get shredded easily.
Over all nice glove, just needs to be broken in like any glove
I'll give them a 9 because nothing is perfect and this isn't either
Dye C4 Gloves -- bulky but protective....i prefer the Empire ones

light and comfortable -- breathes well
easy flex fingers
Doesn't have excessive amounts of protection like some gloves.
Well I haven't used these gloves much, but I've found they have about the same amount of protection as the Dye gloves except they deliver it in a better package. The first thing that I noitced was the knuckle area which expands as you flex your fingers (if you don't know what i mean, think NASA spacesuit gloves, the pockets in knuckle area). I will NOT have to cut the finger tips of like i had to on the dye gloves as these are nice and form fitting while protective and not bulky. So far I've only taken an indirect hit to the back of the hand from about 25 feet and you still feel it, but no bruises/marks/blood. Very very breatheable and comfortable to wear (even has breathable synthetic leather palm). Tthey look really good!
Essentially it's the only glove that offers significant protection while delivering it in a package that makes it feel like you're not wearing gloves.
I haven't had a chance to see how long they last yet as I've only had them for about a month, so I can't comment legitamately on reliability for now.

Very flexible and grip well to your gun
A little uncomfortable the first time you use them
These are very good gloves i got a pair and loved them. They grip well and give you the most mobility. They are a little uncomfortable the first few times you ware them and need to be broken in even though when your playing you don't really notice them. I have used these three times and they were very flexible and did everything i needed them to do. They were also much more comfortable after being washed a few times.
These are nice gloves i would recommend them to anyone they've said me alot of painful finger shots but are a little uncomfortable other than that they're is nothing i can see wrong with them i give them a 9
9 out of 10
