These gloves have had some bad press on the reviews here so I wanted to add my ten-cents.
I'm an avid gym-goer and have been for 6 years, I consider myself committed to this as my sport and train 4 times a week.
I have always used Golds gloves because thats what I started out with, and in more recent years no gloves at all which has all but destroyed the skin around the ball joint on each palm.
At my gym 2 months ago I picked a pair of these up on a whim to help with my one-handed tricep extension grip - what an excellent product.
The gloves are heavy, the rough leather palm has yet to tarnish and the wrist support is great for bench work. I have large'ish hands but got the medium as I dont like the glove to slip between the weights and my palm, and they've stretched just right without distorting.
They won't last forever, none do, but as far as gloves go, very good indeed.
