Reviewer: Anonymous Person from crestview, FL United States  
Nice quality. Hard to move the thumb with the added protect. May just need to be broken in.

5 of 5 5 stars rating for the Spes Gloves October 8, 2019
Reviewer: Jay Fujimoto from Honolulu, HI United States  
I am new to HEMA but have been a kali practitioner for decades.  Throughout the years, I’ve sparred with dozens of gloves.  I can say that, hands down, these are the best gloves I’ve come across.  There is a slight loss of mobility due to the claw design. But, the pros 1) bullet proof hand & wrist protection 2) comfort and 3) the ability to securely purchase the weapon far outweigh the cons.   5 stars for the product and also for the customer service!
