    Right and left don't match

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second pair I've tried where one side is smaller than the other (both times the right was too tight). I kept the first pair. My hands measure the same and a buddy tried them on and agreed. Thought the first pair would stretch out with use but not enough after 3 months. I like the build quality but had to return the second pair. Seems like a quality control issue imo.

    Decent, but don't fit that well for me

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I can imagine these work great for some people, but it just seems to be too tight in the wrong places - they make my hands tired wearing them for too long. On the plus side, they are quite durable, and I like having holes in the straps to clip to something

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Using these everyday at the gym I work at was supposed to destroy these gloves in about six months. They have lasted me almost two years with only slight damage to the velcro. I have full dexterity and am able to completely rig complex systems like 6:1's and Double C's in the same amount of time as someone not wearing gloves. Long story short, I no longer call them gloves. I call them Old Faithful Left and Old Faithful Right.
