Jack what is the exact name for the hatch reactor gloves? I had a search but I didnt find them, and a model name would make searches easier.

Also I cant remember the Isreali (sp?) copy of the m69 flak vest which is cheaper which leadmill kindly told me

Thanks for the great thread

That's it... they're Hatch brand, the model is called "Reactor".

That's the current model with the split knuckle design I was talking about. Even with that, they're still stiff as hell. I wish they would have kept the old look since it matched RE gloves so well.

They're also called Hatch Reactor. It's just that they were replaced by the new Hatch Reactor gloves, and that's why they're harder to find. Your best bet would probably be to do a Google shopping search for Hatch Reactor gloves, and see what seller's still have them listed with the old image. Even then, make sure to contact the seller first and make sure that they have that particular model and not the new split-knuckle model.

I recently bought a pair from Botach Tactical, who had the old image on their website. They sent me the new split-knuckle design, and when I called them to check up on it they looked into it and let me know that the old ones had been replaced and they weren't aware the picture on the site was out of date.

So just be aware of that. I honestly have no idea who may still have the old ones, but some sellers may still have some in stock.

Sorry for the double post, just realized after I wrote it.

Been looking for some gloves that resemble the old ones you mentioned.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Viper-Blac...e m895ed6bf80

I'd say they are pretty close and I know Viper is a good make. What do you think?

Hardly ever post here, just thought I'd throw you guys a heads up, anyone looking for the vintage Hatch Reactor gloves (the correct STARS gloves), there is an auction for 2 pairs (separate) on ebay for 20 or so dollar shipped.

Click here. Link to auction.

technically those aren't accurate. Neither are the Gloves in the guide. If you look close at Wesker, as with Jill and Chris,

You'll see they extend well past his wrist. The gloves being posted here are the ones I use for my chris because the only gloves that come near what they wear are like 80$ and aren't fingerless. But I can't seem to find them >.<

From the guide (which are the same gloves KALASH69 posted):

Quote:
To make the gloves look right, you'll need to wear black wristbands like these McDavid ones, which I use and they work great ...
There are no gloves in that design that feature wristbands. At least not that I've found. The gloves are definitely based on the Hatch Reactor gloves (old style, not new style) but Capcom added the wristband, which actual Hatch gloves do not have.

A friend of mine used bondage cuffs to extend her gloves for her Jill project. It's a simple option. If you were more skilled you could do some custom work yourself.

The only ones I ever saw with the covered wrists were a Hatch knockoff made by some Asian airsoft company, but I can't speak for the quality and don't see them for sale anyplace these days.

Even the legit Reactor's aren't that good, which is why they got redesigned I bet. They're incredibly stiff and make handling a gun a pain in the neck. Hatch has way better gloves in their line.

On a side question, I am after the shoulder holster Barry uses in his remake outfit.

Any suggestions?

The one you linked is pretty perfect. It's the M6 shoulder holster (WWII issue). Otherwise you could always get an old M3 shoulder holster and modify it with the extra strap.

Anyway, got my Samurai Edge:








It's the newer all metal one by HK3P. Paid about 85 for it on ehobbyasia (without shipping).
