I used to not like half-fingered gloves, but these gloves changed everything. My girlfriend bought me some gloves for my birthday and I haven't used any other glove since. These gloves have some of the strongest, and thinnest padding I've ever seen. And the terrycloth thumb is good for wiping paint off your mask lense.
These gloves are great for anybody looking to have something to make those punishing hand shots a little more bearable while keeping your hand streamlined.
