Great protection. Limited Dexterity December 4, 2018
Reviewer: Jonathan Hayes from Frenchville, ME United States  
It is a tale as old as fencing. The trade off between the two. I feel my hands are VERY safe in these gloves. The dexterity in holding the sword is inhibited even more than I had expected.

Great piece of equipment November 3, 2018
Reviewer: Christopher Burns (FLaK) from Valley Village, CA United States  
My school and students own several pairs of these. We use them for greatsword and glaive fighting (rattan), and compared to other gauntlets we have tried, these are outstanding. Great fit, excellent protection against very heavy blows, and all while being extremely comfortable. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Well made, durable; thumb design still lacking October 18, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
SPES still needs to update the thumb design to turn this from the "best starter glove for fencing with steel" to quite possibly "the best glove for fighting with steel"

Reviewer: Brian Aery from southampton, NY United States
