First off, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this thread, so I apologize for that.

In the future I plan to take a Carbine Training Class and I want to use gloves. I'm looking into the Mechanix tactical gloves. Anyone have tired the following Mechanix gloves. Or any recommendations of other Mechanix gloves listed on their site (http://www.mechanix.com/tactical). Or any other suggestions?

buy on amazon. much cheaper and free shipping with prime. i have the mpact3 which has the knuckle protection and i can still perform little tasks. It just has alot of palm padding so i get a slightly hollowed grip feel when i use a handgun especially with the hard knuckel protectors. no problems with rifle. I do plan on getting a mpact 2. It offers similar protection and a little more dexterity. I have the original mechanix which are great when working on your car or around the house but not so great when your hands hit the dirt.

people opt for the oakly's for a more 'custom' fit but you can't beat the cost of mechanix and the fit is perfect for me. It depends on your hand, so definitely get the right size.

I believe I picked up my oakleys for about 30 bucks at their oakley outlet... May be worth looking into.

Yep, they work great. I like the Original "vent" the best. But i keep a pair of the original around too.

I prefer this model. Thin, close fit. No velcro B.S.

I've used Mechanix gloves for over 10 years during my racing years. they are just plain awesome. so guess what, when it was time to get some gloves for training in the hot nevada desert which one should I get. You guess it a Mechanix M-Pact gloves. Getting on your belly or getting up from the hot ground or briefly touching a hot part on the rifle I say nothing compares to comfort and protection than a mechanix gloves.

I have M-Pact in coyote brown and love them. Gone through Oakley's and Wiley's and while those are great gloves, for the money Mechanix are great!

I wear the original Mechanix gloves and find they work great. Might try a pair of M Pact gloves soon.

MW gloves are good and don't forget most any of the quality moto-x gear. Fox, Alpinstar Moose etc..
i sometimes mix and match. fingerless on the right and full glove on the left when the forearm really heats up.
point is don't limit yourself to one brand just make sure they fit well.

I'm thinking of trying them. I've heard the nutnfancy review (I'm not a huge fan of him but he had alot to say about them), and the price is good so buying them in bulk for whenever they wear out is a good idea.

Do they add alot of bulk to the fingers? Can I use this on carbine and pistol?

If you must use one, then go for the ones without the fingers, it'll allow you to better manipulate your weapon. Personally, I would go without. Train like you fight. Being a civilian, if I ever have to reach for my weapon, I probably won't have time to glove up. I had to use the gloves once for a class but it was because I had a cut in my hand and I had to protect it. That's just IMHO. Either way, have fun.

Yea I'm taking for range use when it's 95 degrees like today and after a high round count and such. But yea I will buy a pair to try. Too well priced and great reviews to pass up.
