I use Nomex flight gloves I bough new for $30. They work great and hold up well under constant wear.

Gardening gloves.
Yes, I am serious.
But I normally use my half finger cut off ones.

Btw, those gloves worked great - I got shot on a knuckle and didn't even notice ---> but the dye in the fake leather did leak off when I washed them. No biggie!

I have some old Diablo gloves that I cut the trigger fingers off of and they work good enough for me.
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

My pop is a mechanic, so I use a pair of his old impact gloves. They pretty much have armour over the knuckles and fingers as it is, so I just throw those on when I play. Sometimes you barely know you've been shot in the hand.


Sometimes, even non-paintball gloves would do. What matters most is that your hands are protected, right? Anyways, I got mine about a year ago, and am still pretty happy with my Sniper gloves. A friend of mine gave it to me, and of course, am still impressed with the protection and the added padding that it has. Although I use another glove which I bought from a very reliable online store. It has a grip and some extra padding near the fingers. Both works great! :P

I use extreme rage finger tip-less gloves and put camo garden gloves inside them.
Aim for anything that is visible, most of my shots are either leg, elbow or head... that is if you see me first.

I use a pair of "O" knock-offs from ebaybanned, they look sweet & have held up great for the past year.

Because of the type of field I play at, I spend quite a bit of time in the woods. I wear gloves to protect my hands from climbing thru bushes & crawling on the ground as much as I do to protect them from paintballs. I have however taken a number of handshots & only felt a few that hit the knuckles just right.

Been using Empire Contact gloves for 2 years now and I'm highly impressed with them. Plenty of padding all in the right places.

Before that tough I used Hatch hard knuckle gloves. I've used them on 3 combat deployments and they are awesome. Hard leather over the knuckles, made with kevlar so they can take plenty of punishment

Mmmhm, I have an old, and by old i men a minimum 8-10 years, pair of PMI fingerless "armored" gloves. Usually ill wear them, along with a pair of baseball batting gloves underneath. New pair i got (for baseball, havent tried them yet) do have this very grippy area on the last 3 fingers, so may be replacing my currents soon.

I prefer paintball gloves with soft padding, and full fingers. Because i want the ball to bounce off my hands (even though it hurts like a female dawg). Ive had both my hands shot about 15 times in one go (a guy bunkered me, and ONLY hit my hands). It hurt yeah, but nothing i couldn't deal with, I've bunkered people...

Paintball is all personal preference... To each his own.

The CORE Tournament Paintball Glove was designed to provide ample protection yet still allow freedom of movement. They are great! :)

I have an awesome pair of Operator gloves from Opsgear.com. They look just like the ones worn by the south american rebels in MW2! They are also well fitted and made to last. These are the kind used by tactical teams like SWAT and stuff like that. Great buy in my opinion.

I use something like these. They're not leather, but I got them from Fleet Farm for like $6. I don't see the need for spending more than $10 on a pair of gloves. I've been using mine for about 4 years and they're still good.

Hmm yeah I have a pair of those too. I got em for free with my last order from Paintballonline.com. I use them on warmer days. They are pretty decent gloves, not gonna lie. Oh and I love how they have the armor for the back of the hand and knuckles. That's a definite plus.
