PRODUCT COMPOSITION & PICTORIAL



The glove looks more like a tiny black shirt than a glove because of the strange placement of finger holes. It came with nothing inside the bag except the single glove. It is extremely comfortable and restricts hand and finger movement very little. I could type perfectly with the glove on, loosing neither speed nor accuracy.



The glove is made up of an extremely smooth, stretchy material around the palm. The wrist material is very stretchable as well, with a large velcro square on it for easy adjustment. The wrist material is thick enough to protect your wrist during long gaming hours, against even the sharpest and most uncomfortable desk edges.



Anyone who has played a game for more than one or two hours will agree that the wrist starts to get stiff and even painful after a while. Have you ever wished you could avoid this annoying and painful discomfort? Well, this glove provides full wrist support better than anything I have ever used, and might just be the answer to your wishes.


While the glove gave me little noticeable increase in accuracy (besides reducing friction and therefore making it easier to aim), it did make games a lot easier to play for long periods of time because of the support it provides. I always find myself reaching for the glove before I trek out into the wilderness of Neverwinter Nights or before joining an extra long scrimmage in Soldier of Fortune 2. I think that the glove is comparable to Tums: you wear it before you game to avoid the pain that comes afterwards.


The glove definitely reduces friction between palm and mousepad on hard surfaces, but on cloth pads the friction is actually increased.


Sweaty palms are not a problem when wearing this glove because the fabric is the only thing that touches the mousepad, and it absorbs the sweat from your hand like a sponge. My grip of the mouse was not really improved at first, but when I compared my grip with a sweaty palm to my grip with the glove, I did notice a large improvement.



The wrist material on the glove is thick enough to cushion the wrist while it slides along the edge of the desk. This could reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, help you avoid tendonitis, and keep your wrist in good condition for activities that rely on it such as tennis… and even more gaming!
