The "Lobster" Heavy Gloves are designed to protect your palms which are exposed to injuries during trainings of historical fencing. Our protective heavy gloves provide full cover for four fingers and thumb.

The outside part of the palm and fingers are also protected by the overlapping plastic elements made of polypropylene. Polypropylene represents a high resistancy to cracks which guarantees a higher durability and resistance. Cuff of the material is strengthened by 5 protective parts, edged with eco-leather and increasing the protection of a wrist.

On the wrist there is also a leather belt with a buckle which enables the fencer to better adjust the glove to fit the palm.

The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather. The quilting of the gloves provides additional amortization against the hits.

I got no clue on prices and i've not had it long enough to judge the durability but after a couple months it still works. The protection works on everywhere except for the thumb, if you are to make a move where you have to put a lot of pressure on the thumb, because of the limited mobility your thumb will stick away from the hilt and push a bit trough the material. I have ordered finger protection but that is where i get hit the most. The mobility is also quite limiting as your thumb is stuck in very small angles, nor does it bend very far. I do not however have any experience with any other gloves so i cannot say if this is abnormally annoying.

Mobilty and protection can be better (especialy the mobility). more protection for the top and sides of finger and thumb needed. I would defenetly recomend the "Lobster Thumb Caps" and aditional "fingertip protectors" if you like your fingers

Very nice pice of gear. Less loss of mobility then feared, and it gets better with use. You will prob. need oversized grips on your 1 handed sword/sabre when using this as it takes some space.
