light and comfortable -- breathes well

Doesn't have excessive amounts of protection like some gloves.
Well I haven't used these gloves much, but I've found they have about the same amount of protection as the Dye gloves except they deliver it in a better package. The first thing that I noitced was the knuckle area which expands as you flex your fingers (if you don't know what i mean, think NASA spacesuit gloves, the pockets in knuckle area). I will NOT have to cut the finger tips of like i had to on the dye gloves as these are nice and form fitting while protective and not bulky. So far I've only taken an indirect hit to the back of the hand from about 25 feet and you still feel it, but no bruises/marks/blood. Very very breatheable and comfortable to wear (even has breathable synthetic leather palm). Tthey look really good!
Essentially it's the only glove that offers significant protection while delivering it in a package that makes it feel like you're not wearing gloves.
I haven't had a chance to see how long they last yet as I've only had them for about a month, so I can't comment legitamately on reliability for now.
