Reviewer: R. Baker from THREE FORKS, MT United States  
Burly, well-made gloves. Everyone I know wears these things. Only recommendation would be to melt the ends of the elastic attachments so they don't fray.

5 of 5 Updated thumb is an improvement. October 22, 2020
Reviewer: James Stamper from Eau Claire, WI United States  
Something else is different with this pair of gloves.  Hopefully, it is a design change that continues.  My original SPES Heavy gloves worked against a tight grip.  This set doesn't bind on itself.  Lots of protection and I am able to grip my longsword better.
