A little different version of Hard Thumb gauntlets. Review the pictures closely.

Slowly being phased out, if you can't order a size get the other hard thumb option.

  • A leather belt with buckle enables manual adjustment of the glove at the wrist for a better fit.
  • The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather.
  • The quilting on the gloves provides additional amortization against strikes to the hand.

4 of 5 Great protection July 12, 2022
Reviewer: J  
These are very protective. They feel a bit stiff, but I think they will wear in as they are used. I think the wrist strap could be tighter.

5 of 5 Basically indestructible May 31, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
A little hard to grab things with, as a lobster glove is, but it's comfortable, easy to get on and off, and extremely solid for the plastic construction.

5 of 5 Best Spes Gloves yet May 19, 2022
Reviewer: Khyber Nomad from Texas  
The old SPES gloves only had foam on the tip of the thumb, which was not enough protection. I would bruise my thumb on those regularly. The new thumb protection was better, but the plastic was also on the inside of the thumb which could cause it to slip off the blade when holding the thumb grip. This one fixes that problem but still protects the thumb.

5 of 5 I like my thumbs not broken April 30, 2022
Reviewer: Nic Chandia from Orem, UT United States  
Upgraded thumb cap is phenomenal! Well worth the extra $20 (give or take) from the hard foam ones. Makes me feel like a snappy-sand-boi which is an added bonus!
