uncomfortable and may risk your hand
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The glove itself fits ok, but the built-in wrist guard on top of your hand digs into the base of your fingers. I couldn't put my hand down on the ground without it causing lot of pressure (and at times pain) on top of my hand by digging into it. Seems like a bad design flaw where the metal for the wrist guard is too long. It may save my wrist, but it'd probably break my fingers if I am to land on my hands. Had real high hopes for this one, but won't be usable for me. I may have to remove the wristguard (not possible without cutting it open) and just use as a regular glove, which defeats the purpose. Disappointed and cannot recommend if you are getting it for the built-in wrist guard.
The glove you want is the Level Fly. Ingenious, lightweight, strong wrist protection. The only fly in the ointment is that they are making it with subpar velcro which is the most important part.
