Great Protection, low thumb mobility November 21, 2016
Reviewer: Tony H from Plainfield, IN United States  
The good :
- These gloves provide great protection for longsword and after breaking them in are very comfortable.
- The wrist mobility is great and finger movement feels good for longsword.

The bad :
- I have some issues with getting my thumb in place without presetting it or taking an exaggerated movement to get it in place.
- The end of thumb protection is fairly weak and with the blunk on these gloves your end of thumb is easily presented. If the mobility where better I could place my thumb on the blade preventing it from getting exposed like I do when I am not wearing the gloves but this just isn't an option with these.

Conclusion
These gloves work really well if you can get past the lack of mobility in your thumb or find a way past it.

A great pair of sparring gloves! November 17, 2016
Reviewer: Chad Herbert from Kelowna, BC Canada  
I've been almost breaking my fingers wearing lesser gloves for weeks.  So glad to have these heavy duty gloves!

They fit perfectly, protect well, and the flared wrist works with my jacket sleeve!

Fit Great, Protects Better November 9, 2016
Reviewer: KP from New Jersey  
I really can't recommend these enough.  Tried them out at practice and hard blows to the hands were barely felt at all.  They're surprisingly comfortable, and easy enough to manage, though the thumb grip may take a bit of getting used to.  All in all, I'm really satisfied.

Ouch! November 7, 2016
Reviewer: Charles Castellanos from beach Park, IL United States  
As I have recently been recovering for a H.E.M.A  induced hand Injury, hand protection is a high priority !! This glove looks like it will fit the bill. I may have to do a bit of custom trimming of the plastic shell to get a proper grip, all in all good product.

Great Protection October 6, 2016
Reviewer: Kevin Leighton from Clifton Park, NY United States  
Quite the upgrade from my hockey gloves.  No more blackened fingernails here.   Only downside is that I barely know when my hands get hit :)
