Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These gloves are great. Every bit as good as my Hestra's at fraction of the price. The best part is that they are completely leather, no nonsense "waterproof" fabric and extra stitching to fall apart. One recommendation for beginners: balm, balm, balm. These are LEATHER. Put on a couple coats before you wear them the first time and another one after every session.
