Your hands are usually the first thing your opponent sees and shoots at sense your hands hold your paintball gun. For woodball or outdoor sessions, you may also need to navigate through hostile wilderness, including plants with thorns, poison oak, and abrasive turf when crawling. This can lead to bruising, skin abrasions, splinters, and even infections in the worst-case scenario.
Cover your hands with a pair of padded paintball gloves to protect you from the elements and being shot in the bare skin. You have the choice of padding, full finger and half finger paintball glove designs to pick from in our store.
All Paintball Gloves
Check out all of the options we have at TradeMyGun and pick a pair of gloves that best suit you! Always consider if you prefer leather or synthetic fabrics. Many companies implement synthetic fibers that last longer.

Do you prefer full finger gloves? Then take a look at another Planet Eclipse option. The brand can be quite versatile with the Planet Eclipse GEN4 Fantm Shade Full Finger Paintball Gloves. Paintball players love this design due to the protection and support while wearing.
Hazards When Playing Paintball For The Palms And Fingers
You need to protect your hands during a regular session of paintball. For one, serious injuries will impact activities outside of regular recreation, and they can cause immense amounts of pain. They may need treatment. For another, these injuries can affect your aim and accuracy. You would rather not need to sit out on a session.
Rub burns can happen when you are crawling on turf or diving on a speedball field to avoid a shot. These generally aren’t serious, but they can be annoying and hurt a lot.
Different objects can break the skin, causing abrasions. These do include direct paintball hits.
Cover your entire body with either equipment or protective clothing. Long-sleeved shirts are a must. Have first-aid equipment on hand for post-session treatment. Dab any scratches or cuts with antiseptic ointment, and use Band-Aids when necessary.
