Many improvements compared to the original full fingered fitness glove by Bionic. The strap is now on top as opposed to the bottom, the whole wrist area is a new much softer type of neoprene, the top is a different design and fabric, the leather palm is very similar except the new design has new cut outs to better accustom the hands articulation. But apart from that, another solid fitness glove form Bionic. Something you don't see to often is a full fingered fitness glove and Bionic nailed it. The only thing I'd have to say that's bad about this product is the colour, I wish they went with a solid black colour like the original instead of black and grey but that's subjective. Oh it also features a sweatband like fabric on the back of the thumb so you can quickly wipe off sweat from your forehead at any given time during your workout.... Handy I guess! (Pun intended)
Also keep in mind, the padding in the palm (Which by the way is made of real leather, not faux leather) isn't overly thick to the point where it adds too much girth to the bar when doing pulling (or even pushing) exercises straining your forearms more than necessary. It's just right. I know this is something I've had issues with when I've tried other fitness gloves from other companies.
This product screams quality and ingenuity. Looks great, keep your hands protected and saves you from touching gym equipment God knows who else has put their grimy hands on and saves you from dealing with constantly peeling calluses. Worth every penny for those who enjoy their fitness.
On an extra note, you can also always layer on top of these, your favorite wrist wraps or wrist straps if necessary.
(Be sure to measure and get the right size of glove for you, to do this just go on the bionic website and it should have a sizing guide on there, just google bionic gloves)
