Gloves

Looking for your opinion. What gloves do you like the best? Or is there just a brand that you cant go wrong with? The last gloves that I bought were JT gloves along time ago lol.

Mechanix gloves are very good.

Firm Grip, Mechanix, both are half the price of paintball gloves and are essentially the same thing

Mechanix gloves for pumping and the Empire Fingerless (middle and index finger) gloves for speedball. I HATE cutting fingers off of new gloves, the Empire gloves solve this.

I have worn mechanix, BT, Hatch and JT gloves. My main issue is I keep losing them so I have to buy new ones every so often. I require my gloves to be subdued colors with black as the primary and that they fit me. The knuckle protection offered by some gloves is a bonus, but not required.

To me gloves are mainly to help with concealment since they cover more of your skin. Experienced players know to look for an un-gloved hand or two when playing in the woods. If you like to crawl around and need protection from briars and thorns you may want to look into a heavier duty work glove. I find that paintball gloves and mechanic type gloves do not offer protection against the sharp objects that nature throws at us.

I can't remember the brand of mine. Picked 'em up at home depot because they were only ten bucks. Cheapish, durable, looked good, and were fingerless which is what I needed.

I'm going to look into those mechanix ones

I buy cheap Mechanix knock-offs full finger. Wear them until I start wearing holes in the fingers then dump them.
