But to each their own.

My XL APP full fingers have lasted me 7 years now and are just now starting to give out.
My full finger APPs are 5 days in and are splitting at the finger tips.

I have never had a set of gloves last for more than a season, and quite often it falls rather short of that. Maybe I am just hard on them.

I use those. My hands are decent sized so the carbon fiber part doesn't quite cap my knuckles all the way. However, they are comfortable, decently warm, and provide excellent knuckle protection.

I had that happen to me and the folks at APP had me go up a size to XL from L. I've only had a few outings with them since getting them, so time will tell. That could be your problem.

I have been pleased with my full finger Valken Sierra gloves thus far. I have a pair of unpadded Mechanix gloves in camo that I also am fond of but they haven't been holding up all that well.

Blackstar Pull2? gloves. Teammate had a set, swore by them. When he finally needed another pair, I picked some up too. Best gloves I've ever worn for paintball. Got them for $40 a pair, at HB one year.

Mecanix gloves are sweet too

I've had problems with the durability using Mechanix. The palms just don't hold up to pump play very well. Anyone know of something similar with durable palms?

Those mechanix look good, but they would be hot in the summer... And the cost... ouch.

I'm seriously considering having some gloves made... Back when I was riding bikes all the time, I had these gloves with wrist wraps, and those things saved my wrists more times than I can count! And I have found when carrying a marker, I seem to fall on my left wrist way too much, as I hold my gun in my right hand, and my left wrist takes the brunt of my falls.

If you could design a glove from scratch, what would you look for?

Me, I would want a wrist wrap so I could run it tight like my boots to give my wrists some added protection when I fall. I would then want camo obviously... And protected knuckles as getting shot in the knuckle without padding is no fun, been there done that.

They would have to be full fingers for me, as I often find myself in a sticker bush by mistake! And grabbing a branch full of thorns would be so much more pleasant if my fingers were protected.

And they would have to be cheap. As I am a tightwad, so they would need to cost $20 to $25...

Oh and you would have to be able to throw them in the washing machine without worrying about them tearing up.
$40 for a pair of gloves...

I can't justify spending $40 or more on gloves. So I have a connection with a glove manufacturer, and I can get custom gloves made. What would you want in a pair of gloves for paintball.

1. price point (me personally, I would only want to pay $20-25)

2. wrist wrap (to protect your wrists when falling. I had an old pair of leather skate gloves when I was riding BMX that were awesome in this regard and they saved my wrists many times over the years when I fell.

3. made from what?

4. double stitched, and finger guards

5. no palm padding

6. camo

7. grippy rubber on hands

8. fabric on back to wipe lens clean when playing if you get hit in the face



What do you guys think? What would you want in a glove if I could get it designed and custom made?

$40 for a pair of gloves that has now lasted me two seasons and the only thing wrong with them is the rubber on the fingers have started to peal...

Machine washed all the time.

I can't justify spending $15 per season on crappy gloves over and over and over again...
