Review: I have only tried these gloves on, and cannot use them for play.

At first glance, I like the look of the Exoskin gloves; the color, pattern, and so forth. It is also built with a sturdy weave and good stitching.

However, it took a good deal of strength to pull the gloves over my palms until they were on correctly. I have large hands, and ordered the XL size (the largest that Smart Parts produces), and they fit as though they were a large. I would have liked to see a split-wrist design with some kind of securing strap rather than a solid cuff. Even when on, the glove was squeezing my fingers.

The stitching at the fingertips has a good deal of excess material, which felt uncomfortable against my fingers. This was likely aggravated by the poor fit, so someone with hands smaller than mine might not be bothered.
Conclusion: I wouldn't recommend these gloves for someone with large hands or long fingers, but someone with smaller hands/fingers might find this to be a good quality product.
