I got these in Tan to match my rigs and Oakley SI 6” Assault Boots and to replace my worn out Warrior Assault Systems Tactical Gloves which basically got worn to pieces after a while of gaming.

They are very comfortable; snug, without being overly tight, perhaps the only drawback is the lack of independent knuckle flexibility due to the rigid carbon fibre knuckle guards, although these obviously offer much greater protection against bumps scrapes and shots to the hands.

The fingers themselves have a lightweight breathable upper section with small ports for ventilation on between then knuckles, and a more rugged gripping surface on the inside to ensure good control of any weapon or item you might be handling.

The glove fingertips are sometimes sporadic in terms of their suitability for operating touchscreens (tacticool selfie difficulties) whereas I remember my old WAS gloves being more suitable for such things. 5.11 also sell a new range of hardened CQB protective gloves with specifically designed touchscreen ready fingertips.

Like most gloves the Oakley’s have a Velcro tab to maintain wrist tightness without making them noticeable or uncomfortable.

They are certainly getting a lot of good use and wearing well in my recent games, the only downside really being the hardened knuckle guard causing a bit of discomfort or strain on the trigger finger; given that it moves more (and rapidly & repeatedly in my case!) Than the rest of the knuckles of gripping fingers, i would rather see the trigger finger have a separate knuckle guard to allow easier flexing and less discomfort under prolonged use and sustained semi auto firefights.

All in all, a great glove for the money, fairly functional and fashionable for the  modern day battlefield Prima Donna.
