Mechanix soon spread to other places as they became a popular choice among trade professionals, construction workers, and anywhere that requires skilled hands. Decades later Mechanix has evolved into the brand you see today protecting the hands of our law enforcement and service members as well.

Q: Do you need gloves for playing airsoft at a field?
A: We get a lot of questions from concerned parents of new players about what is needed and they sometimes ask for a list. Aside from the required face and eye protection, gear is purely optional and entirely up to you. You can customize your loadout for comfort, for function, for protection, or any other purpose that suits you. You will start to figure it out as you go along and learn what your needs truly are once your play style starts to reveal itself to you. Though the hands are one of the more painful places to get shot in airsoft, there are many players both beginner and experienced who make do without gloves.
To measure your hand for glove sizing, use a measuring tape and measure the circumference of your hand below your knuckles.
