The gloves arrived a bit smaller than hoped, but after time they have stretched out to size.
They are handy as they are fingerless thus allowing you to handle money etc.
The reason I got these gloves is that I have Rhuematiod arthritis, and my finger joints can be painful at times.
These gloves ease the pain, and protect my hands/fingers from the knocks and bumps of everyday life.
They are leather, and are reasonably priced.

Ok, these are clearly brawling gloves. No motorbike, no gym. The palm is covered in a cloth like material allowing you to grip things normally, why the tops protect your knuckles. I did muay thai for some years and I can definitely tell you these will prevent you from breaking your bones when fist fighting.
They are comfortable to wear, and do not irritate you, or restrict your movements. I do not suggest them as a fashion accessory though.

These gloves are good but mine at least are a bit too tight fitting, I ordered Medium but it is much closer to a Small size. The impact pads are nice but offer little knuckle protection which feels like quite a flaw to me, however the upside of this is that the gloves are less of a hindrance on movement - moving fingers is only slightly restricted (I easily typed this review with them on and have used them for DIY almost without realising I was wearing them). The Leather seems to be of good quality and the soft leather on the palm and thumb offers reasonable grip. I haven't had them long but the stitching and quality seem good and hopefully will be quite durable.

I got these gloves to protect my hands when airsofting, I later used them when I started learning Krav Maga.
The leather prevents damage to your skin, and the padding helps to cushion your knuckles while still transferring the striking force. I've had these gloves several months now, and there's no sign they'll break anytime soon.
If they do break, I'm getting another pair. ;D
I never leave home without them.
