Description SIZING
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.

Now thanks to our heavy gloves, trainings with heavy weapon, feders or dussacks will become much safer.

Really great gloves January 28, 2016
Reviewer: Jordan T. from United States  
I was among the first to get the V1.0 version of this glove. I have had them for about 7 months and I have had only one minor injury when I didn't keep my thumb tucked. The level of protection on these is likely the highest you can get, but I would strongly recommend using a thumb protector (available as a 10-set of finger protectors from SPES) since the thumb is still vulnerable to direct-on strikes.

The articulated construction makes flexibility really good for the whole hand. The only tradeoff with this level of protection is the bulkiness. The gloves are a bit bulbous and stick out a bit, but it's really a small sacrifice to make for keeping your hands intact.

These will not fit into the knuckle bow of a PHA dussack and I find the hard shell kind of "locks" too much into most arming sword grips, making a supple grip difficult. These are definitely best-suited for weapons with completely open grips such as longswords, messers, and pole weapons.

Like Feeling Nothing at All? January 8, 2016
Reviewer: Cameron from Alexandria, VA United States  
Had synthetic longsword and steel feders hit this things. Nothing felt, and I've lost fingernails to those same kinds of hits before. Best purchase I've made doing HEMA.
