Order now for delivery in May 2020
ProGauntlet pre-order is now open.
If you have tried on the prototype gauntlet that we have carried to various events since Longpoint (with the purple fabric), the production run is that size. If that one did not fit you, then future batch(es) will be made with more variety, both larger and smaller.
Here is a link to the ProGauntlet site where you can enter your measurements. They will keep your measurements on file for their future production planning. They ask everyone ordering to go to their site and enter the information for their sizing research.
This item purchase is a pre-order, gloves will be delivered May 2020.
We will charge your card now and orders will be shipped when the product arrives. We will close the order (so as not to clog our cart) so you will receive a notice, but
nothing is being shipped at this time
. When we receive the gloves and ship you will receive tracking at that time.
Please do not order any other products on the same order, we will cancel the other items and ask you to split the order. An order of ProGauntlets should only contain them. You can order multiple pairs if you like.
Indiegogo backers: you should have already received an email with instructions on your purchase. We will not be processing or filling these orders.
Purpleheart Armoury is the exclusive distributor of ProGauntlet in the US, South America and Australia. We have worked very hard to be ready to provide these for you and will get these delivered as soon as we are able.
Any other questions about size, etc. can be directed to the ProGauntlet FAQ here (coming soon)
See Sizing tab for more information.
Please visit ProGauntlet.shop to go through their process of submitting your hand measurements, this will help them determine how best to proceed with future batches, both smaller and larger than the Mark1 sizing. The gloves you are purchasing now are one standard size, use the chart below to determine if the size will fit you.
The majority of people that tried on the prototypes mentioned that it seemed like a perfect fit, but we would like to make sure everyone gets the best experience. We made this list based on feedback from a large group of users.
1. If your hand is wider, the glove really will not fit.
2. With thin fingers, that are too short the finger tips will pop out sooner.
3. People with smaller hands than the given ranges often pointed out that it still moved beyond
their expectation, but we cannot be sure about the full functionality.
4. Feedback was varied, some people with a certain size mentioned “great” whereas other indicated
the glove was too big: it is a matter of personal preference.
Gloves will be shipped when product arrives, target date is May/June 2020. You will receive a 'your order has shipped' or something similar after ordering, but your actual order will be shipped at that time, you will receive a tracking number from us then.
