I have level gloves too. When you are wearing the gloves and you bend back on your wrist, is there any gap between the wrist guard and your wrist?

The beauty of these guards is that they offer protection but not too much protection. They're not glued to your wrist in such a manner that u could never fx wrist. If u get the kind of impact that requires that something fx then better wrist than elbow or shoulder. I will buy again without hesitation. My wife and son also have a pair.

i have the Level Fly Gloves that has the same wrist support/protection. i had my doubts about the support but my first day really made me realize how good these gloves are. my wife who is a physical therapist looked at these when i bought them and remarked the design was "genius".

i intenionally took some falls where i could test the support and it works without fail. i wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone. worth every $$ i spent.

Field test: Conditions: 3 feet Powder, 12F, sunny. KIrkwood opening day.

Very good gloves. Warm and of course protective. You forget the fact that they are a bit bulkier than normal gloves, they fit well and keep the powder out. Overkill on a powder day, but then you don't know in advance when you're going to fall and need protection, besides I wanted toi test them. They are now my standard gloves, unless it's a kids day and I have to play instructor all day.

The biomex insert is not an issue, you don't feel it at all, the knuckle guard is very comfy pushing up on hard pack or just knowing you have added proteciton for your hand, The kevlar palm is obviously good dealing with board edges and taking the blunt from a fall. .Looks indestructible.

The only thing I would change is the liner fabric. It is warm and comfy, but when you get your hands a bit wet the skin sticks to the liner making putting the gloves back on a bit tricky, probably solvable with a half a size bigger glove, but then you would have a really big "hand". Just keep your hands dry.
So the only thing I woul change in thios gloves are the liners internal sinthetic "fur".

Other than that....perfect gloves.
SPAZ, no, no gap if you tightn the oversized strap on the wrist...that should keep the Biomex in place.

How true to size do you feel these run? I'm about to order some Halfpipes and my knuckles measure 8.5" around. Is it a good idea to get size? What does your hand measure since you got the 7.5's?

Mine smell so bad that washing my hands at lunch doesn't really help.

You guys think I can wash them in the machine and then spray some "waterproofing" stuff on them? - they are not really waterproof anymore anyway. But ok, the are 3 seasons old and pretty torn up, so the overall quality was great.

I got the half-pipe ones... THey are def great gloves... I am a Physical therapist and as NOAH's wife said they are genious.. That is exactly what i thought when i saw/wore them for the first time. I use to have the typical dakine ones that look like rollerblade wrist guards.. I knew those were crap and i ended up fracturing my wrist in them lol.. anyway These are great gloves, vvery durable, very comfy and warm.
