Way more comfortable than you'd think, stainless steel riveted protection, high quality construction topped off with looks that make Sir Brian de Bois-Guilbert jealous.
These are better than the similar-looking once offered by another company and are 50% cheaper.
They're Baaaaaack! The Borg never gave up, and neither do these. The metal knuckle look is coming to get you. These gloves seem even badder now than they ever before
These gloves are made with 1 mm "Grade A" cowhide, which does seem on the thick side and, I assume, have superior protective powers combined with their supple feel.
Another millimeter of the stuff covers the palm and also the grip wear point under the thumb and forefinger, and there's plenty more sewn on the backs of the fingers and over the wrists. These other layers hold the riveted stainless steel metal pieces, which are reminiscent of skid plates on an SUV, and about as big.
The gauntlets are lined and big enough to fit over the thickest leather jackets I could find. The gloves also have a separate leather cuff riveted on the back, with two sections, connected by metal loops, that fold down on each side and around the bottom of the wrist to wrap things up.
These sections connect under the wrist with hook-and-loop, one over the other. This gives the critical area under the wrist three separate layers of leather protection.
