These gloves are expensive but appear to be of exceptional quality. There are some very nice touches, particularly the wristbone protection and palm sliders. Also, on the 4 fingers of each glove the seams are sewn on the outside of the finger rather than on the inside; this allows a tighter fit and better comfort. The fit is almost perfect (size small for me) although the length of the fingers on the ring and small fingers is a tad long - this is an industry standard, apparently, or just my hands. Silicone grip pads on the palm assure a firm grip. Highly recommended.
