The outside part of the palm and fingers are also protected by the overlapping plastic elements made of polypropylene. Polypropylene represents a high resistancy to cracks which guarantees a higher durability and resistance.

The 11cm cuff made of fabric is reinforced by six covered with leather elements which aim is to protect the wrist’s bones.

On the wrist there is also a leather belt with a buckle which enables the fencer to better adjust the glove to fit the palm.

The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather. The quilting of the gloves provides additional amortization against the hits.

Gauntlets April 13, 2016
Reviewer: robbows from Leongatha , victoria Australia  
Fantastic hand protection. Great inner gloves and top qlt stitching. Strong learher strap. Ill file off some of the plastic to facilitate my hands and how i hold my sword. Almost all gauntlets need some minor adjustments

Good stuff March 28, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Moscow, ID United States  
I believe SPES has upgraded these heavy gloves after Matt Easton's review because I've experienced none of the issues he brought up. I can thumb the flat without impairment. The cuff isn't too big, and it holds its shape. Much smaller and it actually wouldn't fit with the rest of my kit.
These really are the only fencing gloves on the market suitable for steel longsword sparring. Also, I would only recommend these for longswords and other two-handed weapons. While I expect they will soften up over time and use, they do rob the hand of much mobility and dexterity. They make your fists heavier, as well. This is good for protection. With the high quality workmanship, materials, and design, there's not much more mobility to be gained without sacrificing protection. Also, you can't open your hand all the way because the plates lock together, so keep in mind this is a specialized glove for holding a weapon in your hand.

Built tough, feel tough. March 21, 2016
Reviewer: Rick from Honolulu, HI United States  
These gauntlets are super tough. They are built really well and you don't feel a thing when your sparring partner whacks you on the hands...seriously. They are some of the best training gauntlets I've ever had. I highly recommend these to anyone doing serious sparring and not wanting to put their hands in danger.

Gloves review February 17, 2016
Reviewer: Ivan from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Bought SPES gloves from here. The quality stands out right away. The only issue is that I have very small hand and even with the small size glove can't get the thumb to grip properly. Good product but it took almost 2 month to get it here in Canada
