These new gloves are a great upgrade from the last ones. Although I got used to them, the old gloves were hard to put on but once on, worked great. These new gloves are really a lot nicer in all ways--glad I made change. By the way, love your bands also. Have double sets and have changed from weights to all band workouts with great improvements. I have a really nice weight gym but really do not need the weights anymore, at 75 I was continually getting connective tissue strains at joints but bands seem therapeutic. Seen decent strength gains at a time when I should be suffering from Sarcopenia.
