Question: Do I really need gloves, and if the answer is yes then which ones to choose?
Does anybody know if those mechanic gloves are any good, they look comfortable, and durable.

Gloves are a personal choice. I prefer to use them, while the next person might not. The ones that fit comfortably and allow you enough sensation to feel what you are doing will do. Many choose Nomex flight or tanker's gloves for that reason. The kind of gloves you linked to will be fine also.

Personally, I wore through too many pairs of Nomex gloves to buy them again. The Hellstorm gloves I switched to have worked and held up better.

As a tech, I "love" the M-Pact2 Gloves from the Mechanix line. Might not need them for airsoft though.

I've been through more pairs of gloves than I like to admit. Three different Hatch brand models, aviators, you name it. I had some Hellstorm SOLAGs back in the day and I wish I had kept them.
