I use these gloves. When it comes to protective equipment, especially gloves, I don't really understand why people need to buy the high end stuff. The difference in weight is really minimal, and most people don't need anywhere near the level of protection the "pro-level" equipment offers. The XVI's are perfectly comfortable for me (try them on!) and provide more than enough protection, and I've taken several slashes on them.

Not sure about the long-term durability, but I have been using them for several months already and they are still in great shape. I do treat them with 70% alcohol and air them out after every use though, and I am sure that this has added to the life expectancy of the palms.
