First, what do you intend to do with those gloves?
Full leather is pretty different from nylon/mesh material so it's gonna be hard to give you advices without knowing your goal.
What I can tell you right now is that I've been disapointed with Safariland/Hatch gloves quality lately, but that remark is specific to another model that has had terrible stitching issues over the last two years...

Save your money by going to the local hardware store and buy 10 pairs for the price of one "cool guy" glove.

I need the gloves to protect my hands mainly during soldiering in the field and in CQB I) (not for airsoft or reanactment)

I not mind spending money on good gear, so if somebody used this specific models please share your experience ( or maybe you know another good model)

Mechanix are more than adequate for field use, as long as you're not worried about flames (and, honestly, 99.99999% of the time you won't be).

I had a pair of Mechanix Original Covert and they were great gloves for both Infanteering and for using dial sights on the light gun during gunnery. They were very comfortable, protected my hands and I had the same dexterity as without them.
My complaints about them are that they hold water really well and, I found, during winter I had to wring them out quite often and, also, that the loop part of the velcro closure was shite and after about 2 weeks of use came off one of the gloves completely and degraded quite a bit on the other.
Saying that, I quite tempted to buy a pair again as I lost that pair.

In the end I bought Hatch gloves.
Will see how good they are.
