I think Spec Ops should look into making gloves. They could apply their patented Omnipat and/or their Woodland Digi to the outside to give it that awesome look and so it would fit in with the rest of the future buyers' gear. I've been playing with a pair of cheap JT gloves that i got from Wal-Mart for five bucks, and they really don't help a lot when it comes to hand shots, holding onto my gun, etc., etc..

I definitely agree, Spec Ops should work on making some gloves. They only have two types in their store, and neither of them are made by Spec Ops. Even though camo is somewhat unecessary for gloves, every little bit helps. Also, they could make the camo a secondary feature to the gloves' protection/grip (ie. make camo'd versions of their current 2 glove types for $5-$10 more than the regular ones).
On another note, I personally use black half finger work gloves from Walmart, they give excellent grip and pretty good protection. I got shot directly in the knuckle, and I barely felt it.

Yeah, I would like to see them make some good PAINTBALL-SPECIFIC gloves for a decent price. The only decent gloves you can really get are >$40. Sure, you can get some nice tactical gloves from Galls or Blackhawk, but they're going to cost you and not be tailored toward your uses. I would like to see gloves priced in an affordable range ($20-$40) which are designed for use in the paintball/woodsball world.

I would like to have a pair of half-fingers with plastic knuckle guards on them, and some grippyness in the palm. I've been using the JT ones from walmart. They're uncomfortable, and after a while they leave an elastic band mark on my wrists.

Hey guys...gloves made specifically for us or with our camo aren't really an option for us. They take too long to make in house and would therefor be VERY expensive and to have them outsourced would require that we have thousands made and it would take forever to sell them.

What we have made in house are our forearm/hand guards found here...
http://shop.specialopspaintball.com/specia...and-guards.html

They are meant as an alternative to gloves. They slide onto your forearm and have a loop of elastic that you put your ring finger through. They are padded tp protect the backs of your hands and forearms but leave the palm of your hand free to grip the gun and they leave your index and middle fingers free for the trigger. They're very comfortable and I love mine.

I thought no one would reply to this lol.

The Forearm guards that you have on the store look very nice, but, I can't help but think that they can do better than gloves.

Having your forearms get shot doesn't hurt all too much, for me anyways. The flesh on it is thick, and better absorbs the shock of a paintball. Your fingers, on the other hand, do not have the convenience of thick flesh. The skin is thin, and exposes the nerve endings. That's why whenever i get shot in the fingers, I almost drop my gun from the pain. The forearm guards,(which i will now refer to as FG's) seem to be made of the same material as gloves, foam padding, condura, whatever else they are made of. So i can't see why it would be more hard or cost more to take the material and form a hand-like shape.

Do you produce your clothes,(Fusions, Marauders, Ultra-Lights, etc.) and the FG's in-house? If so, i can't imagine why you can't produce gloves also, seeing as how your clothes require much more material to produce. Maybe it's the type of materials? I don't know.

I'm sorry if I come off rough. I'm not trying to bash the FG's. They seem like very nice products, but I just can't imagine how they can be easier and cheaper than gloves to produce.

I am 14, so I run on a tight budget... I buy my own, and every little bit helps. I got buy gloves at Dunham's sports, they were eight dollars. The back is covered with a plastic case, but, unfortunately, the only choice was blue.

They work alright, but I got a blister from them rubbing on my knuckles. Maybe my gloves just need worn in...

Anyways, the get the job done, but in my opinion, the best is just a good pair of biking gloves. A while back I stole a pair of biking gloves from my mom that I LOVED. They had a padded palm area, good for crawling around and stuff. The palms looked like a freaking gorilla, and they were leather made. The back was almost teri-cloth(sp dies...) and very soft. It would serve the purpose wonderfully! But... I lost them... that equals angry mother.

Anyways, gloves from the local sportsware store work just as good, and would be cheaper than having specops make them

Honestly, I got tired of buying gloves and having them stain my hands, tear, not fit right on my middle/ring finger (The webbing between those fingers on both my hands is strange) ect. Eventually I just decided to get some reusable bandages and wrap my hands like a boxer. It's comfortable and easy to wash. Works for me I guess.

InvertedArms has a point. Gloves in paintball are one of those items you're better off getting a non-paintball brand. Mechanic gloves, biking gloves, and other sports provided equal, or better quality gloves for a lower price because you're not paying for brand.

I personally use the walmart JT ones and have no issues.
