I used to wear a large cricket style glove on my left hand but stopped as I began to find it uncomfortable. I purchased a pair of these (although I only really wanted one for my left hand). I used it for the first time in a match and it was so comfortable I forgot I even had it on. Very lightweight and offers a decent amount of protection. The sizes do run quite large however, and as someone who considers themselves to have quite large hands from years of weightlifting etc... I ordered a large, which I was expecting to run tight, however the glove certainly isn't loose, but it could be tighter.
