SPES Heavy Gloves - Hard hand protection for use with nylons or steel.
Red Dragon weapon sparring gloves are at the forefront of affordable
hand protection for weapons based martial arts.  They were developed in
conjunction with the HEMA community and contain many features only seen
on gloves retailing at more than twice the price. The overlapping
plastic finger plates ensure that the chance of a weapon making contact
with your fingers is kept to a minimum while providing maximum mobility.
The combination of plastic protective plates and high impact shock
absorbing foam provide a high level of protection from many types of
blunt weapons typically used by martial artists. The tough microfiber
outer material provides long lasting protection and a level of
durability not seen in traditional synthetic lather coverings.  The
gloves were developed form protection against synthetic sparring weapons
but are used by many for sparring with (blunt) steel weapons as well.
They are without a doubt the best sparring gloves in this price range by
far.
