Over my decade and a half of playing airsoft I have had the chance to try out many different pairs of gloves and as such I feel confident talking to all of you about what I use and why. Firstly, I actually have about three sets of gloves that I currently use right now and find myself switching to for different reasons. These gloves are the following: Mechanix MPACT 2012 gloves, Mechanix MPACT gloves, V-Tac Armored Half Finger gloves. Now, I generally have multiple versions of the same item in my armory because they fulfill different mission requirements. The Mechanix MPACT 2012 gloves are the main set I use for the vast majority of my operations. This is for a number of reasons, but mainly because they provide the best combination of dexterity and protection. They also look the coolest which is, if you know me, also a big factor in my decision making process.
For those looking for some sort of inspiration for your next load out, definitely look through our Tactical Gear Head videos, as Bob chooses various effective load outs that can cater to every play style from speedsoft to MILSIM (Military Simulation).
In this video, Bob built his unit around a G&G GBBR (Gas blow back rifle) M4, which is a great low cost choice when diving into the gas world. His loadout is fast, and carries most of the essentials needed to play effective on the field.
