I play box and these gloves offer a lot of protection. I decided to purchase these since they were the gloves the NLL used in 2015. I was not disappointed. I've taken some good slashes to the hands and a few shots and could barely feel it. The size, however, does run a little large. I bought the 13" since that is what I usually wear in Brine and Maverick and they were a tad large.Pros:
Size runs a little large. Try on before purchasing if you can to ensure that you get the proper size.
