Huang's Oakley Tactical glove replicas!!

I just received the package today and i must say, the gloves are very high quality. They're very comfortable to wear because of the skin-tight-like design. I can write and type with these gloves! The Carbon fibre nuckles give the gloves a very nice look. The gloves even have air vents to keep your hands cool but warm at the same time. The airflow feels great when wearing these gloves. Some stitching and threads that stick out but nothing serious. Other than that, I would really recommend these gloves if you don't want to spend ~3x as much for the real pair. BTW, the size that i purchased is large. Worth my $30.







Quality: 5/5
comfort: 5/5
Looks: 5/5

Dragonredairsoft customer service: 5/5

Review on surefire m962 flashlight(LED) coming soon!

The back of the glove looks pretty good as a replica but the palm is out to lunch. Just in case anyone was wondering. If you want I will snap pics of my tan and black gloves front and back this weekend if I remember.

The resin they use for the carbon fibre is a bit soft if I recall. Also there are alot of parts that just plain feel cheap if compared to the real pair.

There are plenty of really good reasons why you shouldn't skimp on gloves, boots or kneepads. Would you wear replica eye protection?

I didn't really expect much when i purchased them. But i was very surprised how good quality it was even though it cost only $30 while the real pair costs around $90.

Real pair has undergone a price drop to $75.

These look good for $30 though.

I love my real oaks. I'd never trade 'em.

Like Wilson said, you shouldn't skimp on shit like this.

not only are you disrespecting me but Huang also. He works hard to provide us airsoft players with quality products for those who can't afford to spend that much.

True, but safety for the eye is first.

This is just gear, for playing airsoft.
You get for what you pay for.

Could you afford real chest rigs and vests just to play airsoft?

Just because it is for airsoft, doesn't mean it has to be cheap.

All props to Huang if they were "tactical gloves"

but you can't really talk about respect when they are fakes that actually use logos etc.

I am all for good replicas if they are nice, but I don't give them respect lol.

How so?

I mean no disrespect, but you DO realise these are SUB-PAR, right?

If you want to save a buck, sure, by all means. But for "protective" equipment, I wouldn't be too parsimonious.

Yes i did. As i said, " I didn't expect much when i purchased them". Anyways just drop that topic. The gloves are cheap replicas but are good for the price period.

I'm going to buy those for my motorcycle rides in summer.
As long as they don't leave black shit when you sweat, and start to strip off on the finger tips.

No offence, but you are truly an idiot if you wear anything but proper motorcycle gloves for riding. You go down at more than 20km/h with THOSE gloves on? You wont have hands left to write with, let alone play airsoft with. Every met or talked to anyone who's been in a motorcycle accident? I would suggest doing so.

I've been in a motorcycle accident before on a 60km/h, and I know how it is like.
I'm going to use this when it's hot days. Sometimes when it's too hot, I wear nothing. Better to have something than nothing.
And I do have quality gear too.
Ever heard of squids? Going t-shirts and shorts on highways?
That's 100x worse than going 20km/h with cheap gloves.
