I really like these gloves, the rubber reinforced palms means that you get a really good grip on most surfaces. I do a lot of press ups, chin/pull ups and these gloves grip way better than the York leather gloves they are replacing York Leather Gloves
The padding around the finger areas is also good and will be good for light to moderate use, only issue I can see is if you lift really heavy weights and you need to get a tight grip, the padding might work against you!
As you'll see from the photos the gloves are open on the top, but this doesn't mean your hands will sweat less, if I remember correctly, it's your palms that sweat not the top of your hands! Saying that, this design should mean that the gloves dry quicker as it can be opened up virtually flat for drying.
I have been using them for a couple of weeks and so far no signs of any damage.
Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and prefer them to the York leather gloves they are replacing. They are comfortable to wear, provide good protection, look good, and they are pretty cheap!
UPDATE - A month or so after buying these, the rubber padding on the palms has started to come away in small chunks. Still going ok so far but I think the whole padding will come away after a few more months. If you are a heavy user then I wouldn't recommend these at all.
UPDATE 17/09/2012 - Ok these are just falling apart, the rubber padding on the palms are shedding like mad. I can't recommend these at all now, avoid!
The neoprene material is nicely absorbent, the elastic finger grips fit snugly but not tightly, and the palm sections are padded to add cushioning. The back of hand fastenings are closed by wide Velcro tabs and remain firmly shut during workouts - I have them done up nearly as tightly as they'll go, but there's plenty of room for adjustment without risk of the gloves coming open during use. They machine wash well (on a cold setting).
Good things, at a reasonable price.
They would be fine for other pulling exercises such as lat pulls and chin ups you don't use your thumb as much. But for dead-lifting they were very annoying. They would also be fine for pushing like bench press.
Update: After 4 months use.
I go to gym 2 times a weeks , the tear and wear is showing already.
The stitching on the palm paddling is beginning to come loose already.
The finger holes where you grip bars, for pull downs and chin ups, are stretched. I am sure they will break very soon.

Not great felt cheap and didn't feel they gave any protection during training at all.Published 1 day ago by Timber
The gloves fit perfectly, and are very comfortable. Material is very spongy and the grip on the underside is excellent. Read morePublished 9 days ago by george
Very comfortable when you lift the bar when it is on the padded area of the glove. It seems I can get a few more reps out of each set because my hands dont hurt anymorePublished 17 days ago by Umar Ahmed
