Products Used:
PCS gloves, Extreme Rage gloves

Strengths: Breathability
Lower cost than some other gloves out there
Weaknesses: Sizing

Review: This glove is perfect, if you find the one that fits your hand perfectly.

Functionally speaking, these work well at what they do. There is mesh material on the fingers (between other fingers) and it does work rather well at breathing. This prevents sweaty palms from forming over the day.

The biggest downside, to me, is the sizing. I ordered the biggest they had (XL) and most other gloves in that size from other producers fit me well. Not so with these, I had to struggle to get them on the first several times. Now that they're broken in, it's a lot of effort, but it is doable and they don't pinch my hand as much.



Conclusion: If you have smaller hands, order them as you see fit. If you have bigger hands, I'd recommend finding another glove. When I have the spare funding, I'll be replacing these because they don't fit me well.

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.
