Good protection February 12, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Hamilton, NJ United States  
These gloves offer excellent sparring protection, but I found sizing confusing. The sizing chart tells you to measure your hands in 3 separate dimensions, and my results indicated I should get the small, medium, or extra large gloves depending on what number I went with. I choose the middle size and they seem to work out okay after the first few sessions

SPES Heavy Gloves January 18, 2018
Reviewer: Robert Carter from Pittsboro, IN United States  
I've taken some monster blows and except for some known vulnerabilities they're impervious.  Even with  the fingertip protectors inside of them you can still get your thumb crushed against the grip. It hurts, bleeds a little, the nail falls off as the new one grows in. Several weeks later, you're good as new. It was my fault, I will admit that. We now cast silicone thumb protectors, they work superbly and you don't even notice them. Also, if you take a straight on strike in any fingertip even with tip protectors, it hurts bad. So, don't let that happen.
