There were a few comments about the size being small. They are, I have small hands and they were a snug fit, but I was looking for this. They've a good grip although as they are my first workout gloves I've little to compare them to, but it beats callouses on the palms. The stitching on the thumb came out 4 or 5 months ago but it hasn't caused the glove to fall apart and I've been using it for a year now. I work out 3 times a week and also use them for cycling as the grip they give is 2nd to none. I'll probably buy another pair when these finally disintegrate.
