Gloves: Vapor XX or XXX

I'm looking for gloves, and I'm wondering if I should go with Bauer Vapor XX or XXX. What are the differences between them when it comes to fit and comfort ? Is worth paying the extra bucks for XXX ? I'm playing in a beer league.

for a beer league? nah, but it all depends on the feel, comfort and the protection.

I've found customers preferring the XX for protection and the XXX for fit. I don't think the extra money is always worth it in the situation you described. It's not like you're choosing between a crappy cheap glove and a nice expensive one.

I'd say depends what type of palm you want...that's the main difference in the two if you ask me. They fit pretty simliar, but it's mostly the palms that you wanna see about.
