Doesn't really offer much protection
I really wanted to like these gloves. But after the first game, the stitching was coming undone on the back of the gloves and the fingers. Also, the rubber armor started to peel off the glove, not that it did much to protect your hands anyways. Sent them back to Proto for replacements, and the new pair they sent me did the same exact thing. Tried once more for the replacements (was hoping that third time would be the charm) but once again they started to fall apart. Furthermore, Proto refused to cover the shipping for the replacement gloves for the third pair.
Personally, I wont ever buy any Proto/Dye clothing again... they are made for looks and that's pretty much it.
