Customer Review
"In addition these are the best gloves we have used for both our Shinkage heiho and Owari Kan Ryu sojutsu, and for our “weapons workouts.” I have been trying out different gloves for the past 30 some odd years, and yours are the best I’ve used in that time. They provide the best back of the fist and knuckle protection, and the length of the cuff is ideal for the Shinkage training."

2 of 5 Sizing chart is wildly off January 9, 2022
Reviewer: David from Washington, D.C.  
Honestly, I want to give these gloves a good rating.  They (should be) comfortable, sturdy, and offer excellent protection against anything shy of a longsword.  So why the bad review?
Simply put, the sizing is wildly inaccurate.  My hand circumference is eight and a half inches, which the sizing chart claims is a solid M.  It’s not.  My M-size gloves are huge.  Even a size S is a shade too large.  I haven’t tested a size XS yet but, but wouldn’t be surprised if that’s a proper fit.  That’s a full two sizes less than what I “should” order, which makes me wonder what someone with genuinely small hands can find.  This needs fixing.

5 of 5 nice gloves August 24, 2021
Reviewer: HEMA Doc from MA United States  
comfortable gloves that are getting even better now that they're past the break-in period. Not sure how much the padded back offers in protection but I only use these for rapier anyway.

5 of 5 Great product August 9, 2021
Reviewer: Christian B. from Rockville  
I used a pair of these for 2 years before my mistreatment of the material caused it to split. New pair feels great and are easy to break in.

4 of 5 Sizing runs VERY big July 8, 2021
Reviewer: Heather from Raleigh, NC  
I ordered these gloves in XS, having measured first to ensure I was getting the right size. They shipped quickly, but when they arrived, I could tell they were huge. I sold them to a friend of mine who had planned on ordering the mediums. They fit him perfectly. I have ordered the XXXS size to replace these, but I have been waiting over a week to receive a shipping notification. I supposed they don't keep that size in stock. As to how protective the gloves are, I can't say as I have not had a chance to try them out yet. But my friend was able to use his saber effectively while wearing these.
