4 of 5 Ultimate protection, limited mobility. September 9, 2020
Reviewer: Marie-Annick Scott from Edmonton, AB Canada  
These are what you want if you aren't willing to take any chances with your hands. There are a couple of improvements that could be made, however, to improve mobility. First would be to place the back of the hand rivets further back toward the wrist. This would allow more flexibility when opening the hands for a slide or for winding. Another option could be to make the back of the hand segment two pieces.

4 of 5 For short and wide hands? August 6, 2020
Reviewer: Michael from ITHACA, NY United States  
For me they were a little short in the fingers and wide in the hand and thumb areas (size XL).

5 of 5 Excellent protection August 4, 2020
Reviewer: Shey Dillon  
I’m a HEMA-ist for fun, but a musician for a living. My fingers are the number one thing I do not want to injure while sparring and drilling. These gloves provide EXCELLENT protection! They need to be broken in, and mobility can be a little limited, but I have no fear of any finger injury while wearing them. And I’ve taken some hand hits! I wish they were a little less bulky, but for the protection and price, totally worth it
