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.
Ever heard of squids?! Jesus, you're 16, you can't have been riding for more than THIS season! I've been riding a hell of a lot longer than you and have been in two accidents.
My point is those gloves would be a waste of money if you got in an accident. You might as well NOT wear gloves, cause they'd SHRED the instant you hit the ground, guaranteed. If you've really been in an accident on a bike and aren't just saying it to try and sound cool, you'd understand the importance of good gear all the more..

No no, I have gotten into an accident on Lawrence Ave W and Keele passing an intersection where there's a major hole shit on there.
I've got my M2, and rode since March. Drove many many times on the highway. it also depends what bike you ride. Cruiser is always safer. Yes, gear IS important. Yes, I realize now at a closer look those gloves would shred. I thought it was just leather..
What bike do you ride? BTW, I'm 17, and ride a 06 750 Shadow Aero Touring.

You mean you ride your dads 06 750 shadow. I've seen you on gtamotorcycles too. I don't think there's a mm of leather on those gloves. They're cheap nylon kinda material. Might as well wear those shitty stretchy gloves we all wore in elementary school.
And the statement "cruisers are always safer" makes you sound incredibly stupid (no offence). Going down on ANY motorcycle is dangerous. The average cruiser is heavier than the average sport bike, so I'd probably say it's MORE dangerous!
As for me, right now I'm riding a 97 Kawasaki Ninja 250. Wanted a project bike to build and they're cheap so i said why not. Besides, after having my SV650 totalled by a drunk driver, insurance blamed ME, they're now raping me a new ass hole on my insurance. So I can't afford anything bigger. Searching for another SV650 for next season.

A teammate of mine has a set of these and they seem to be pretty good besides making his hand black after every game. Served him for over a year and still are in decent condition so I guess that's good.

I have a real set of Oakleys and after about 2 years of hard play they've pretty much fallen apart. Maybe I'm too tough on my gear but I doubt I'll get a second pair to replace the ones I'm using once they're done.

Maybe not, but some of us like the real thing. After a season of hard abuse (grabbed all sorts of stuff I never would without gloves on, played in the rain, gotten muddy, and to top it off I have sweaty hands when it's hot outside) they're holding up as if they were new.

I've heard the replicas split between the thumb and forefinger. any truth to that? If they hold up reasonably well, I don't see why someone on a budget couldn't wear these for a while.

Seriously, I think buying replica for something that is only $45 away from the real thing is stupid. If you can cough up 30 for gloves, save 45 more and get oakleys.. not much more, but a hell of a lot better. Some things seem pointless to replicate.

Well, it 's my decision and i chose to purchase these over the real pair. End of discussion.

I'm assuming that these are probably the same as the ones that ebaybanned sell. They look good, fit well, and don't leech their colour onto your skin when you sweat. They're also really well ventilated too, which makes them comfortable to wear. For that price, they'll protect your knuckles from a painful BB hit just as well as the real deal would.

However, they start showing wear and tear very quickly. So much as touch them on velcro, and threads will be pulling a bit. Ditto for fighting your way through thick brush and such. It's very hard on the gloves. I've worn mine to 2 milsim games and 2 skirmishes, and quite honestly, the fabric on the gloves is starting to look worn. The gloves have held together well, but the fabric look like crap now.

That being said, if you're playing primarily indoors, I think you could get some decent longevity out of these things. They're not real tactical gloves, but they're decent for the money. I wouldn't outright recommend them, but for the price I think they're ok.

And in using these as motorcycle gloves, I think they'd provide no protection whatsoever in a crash.

I think I'm fairly alone when it comes to preferring the real stuff (or at least the higher end replicas) when it comes to airsoft. Fight like you train, train like you fight.

"Their drills were bloodless battles and their battles were bloody drills."

Mind you, that applies to a hell of a lot more than just gear, but that is leaving the scope of this thread.

Not entirely, its like Huangs SERPA's versus the real ones, there is what $50 difference? But the real one WILL stand up to a lot more punishment! It seems moot that if you spent only $50 more you wouldn't be buying another. That said I'm not a stickler that EVERYTHING has to be real deal, I do employ a lot of Pantac products but in the end, any time I have a Pantac product versus the real deal, its a no contest when costs are set aside. I love my RRV, but when comparing the cost of the real one to the Pantac, I certianly do think it would have been just as well to go with the real one. Though CIRAS definitely the Pantac as the Eagle is several hundred dollars more.

For any protective gear, its always a better safe than sorry. This talk of using these for riding a motorcycle, I would probably say its better to go with out any than with something not designed for that use. Also, having a crash while in-experienced does not make you experienced with crashes, Evil Knievel is experienced with crashes; you're a kid that got dropped on his arse most likely trying to push a vehicle further than you were capable of at the time which is recent. The people that make their lively hood creating the protective gear for motorcyclist study thousands of crashes over their career and probably more in one week than you could possible be involved with in your riding life time. Now this also translates back to airsoft as well, any protective gear should be weighed heavily, I know I settled for a replica IBH because I want to create a specific look with out braking the bank and have succeeded in this, but in no way shape or form do I think that bloody thing offers much in the way of head protection. The thing with gloves, knee/elbow pads and so on is that their real world versions are usually not that expensive it does not make sense to sway the protective value of the real one for the cheap dollar value for the fake. $40 is pennies when you factor that these replica's have so many reports of just coming apart that when you've gone through two sets before getting mad and buying the real, you could have had two pairs of the real ones. When there are hundreds of dollar difference then I can see the reasonin' such as with the CIRAS. $40 is nothing, it really isn't, while it all adds up quick the extra few weeks you wait to invest that little bit more will be worth 10 fold.
