4 of 5 Not just safe, Lobster safe August 5, 2021
Reviewer: Moe from Ypsi, MI  
Overall the gloves make me feel very safe. Strikes to the plastic with metal weapons hardly register, and the wrist collar is well padded too.
They are a little bulky and obstructed movement when using forearm guards, though not a serious issue.
The gloves take some breaking in and require you to use your hand differently until everything adjusts. This especially affects the thumbs, as I felt a little lost on where to put them comfortably. After ~6 hours of good use, they already feel better. The thumb pad and tip can feel exposed, especially with long swords, so I'd recommend the caps.
