Nice, lightweight glove
I've only used these gloves once, but so far, I like them. They are very lightweight but provide a good grip on the reins.

I originally ordered these gloves in December, but the first pair I received fell apart the second time I wore them! (Index finger split from tip to second knuckle when I went to wrap a polo - not exactly hard labor!) I was pretty surprised because a lot of the ladies at my barn have these gloves and they all love them. So I called Smartpak and (predictably!) they were very helpful - took back the old pair and said they'd send a replacement ASAP. Unfortunately the gloves were on back order at that point, but I received the replacement almost a week before the estimated ship date so that's all right. New pair seems much heartier - I imagine I just had a defective pair the first time, but I still gave the durability a 3 to reflect the initial problem. Otherwise a very nice pair of gloves for a very reasonable price!

They look & fit great. Not sure of durability yet as I haven't had them long. I bought them to use at shows & it's too cold right now so I haven't tested them out.

Love these gloves!!
These are great gloves! They are thin and flexible but still offer protection. They seem to be holding up well and the fit is good.

Best gloves ever!
Words cannot describe how much I LOVE these gloves! I have them in black and brown, and they're so stylish! My fingers tire easily if gloves are too thick, and these are thin but strong, an the elastic around the knuckles makes them SO comfortable. Even though they're thin, the palms provide AMAZING grip, and are VERY strong. I only noticed slight wear after a year of very heavy use, after I'd lunged a horse that tried to take off in the opposite direction. Even after that there are no holes, just wear in the suede. AMAZING.

My favorite gloves
I love these gloves, I have them in black and white for showing. They are very comfortable, and when they get dirty, I just wear them, and wash my hands with gentle soap, and let air dry. They are great!
