Magnus M at GHFS found these gloves with the same overlapping finger protection as the Brine ones, at 72$:

Just found these

Don't know what they are like but at £15 a pair they're probably not a bad stop gap.

That's pretty shit then.

I really should read things through properly. :roll:

£30 for a pair puts them on a par with the Warrior gloves, and these look slightly more protective.

Plus it doesn't look like they do a right hander, most field hockey suppliers only do left hand gloves.

...so, after all this time, how do they compare to the brine supercrosses ?

I don't think he bought them, he just found them avaliable online.

Ruddy expensive, though. I'm looking to get another set of gloves, need something to take staves and nylon swords. And affordable, considering that I'll have to double the price to get them down my end...

Has anybody tried these? :

Worn over a leather glove they seem to offer some potential - a sort of hybrid between Victorian bayonet sparring gloves and a mitten gauntlet.

We have tried these sort of gloves...not bad, but not perfect. The grip is awkward to say the least, however the protection for the hand is sufficient...the wrist meanwhile suffers a bit.

They seem to be quite varied, do you know which ones it was you tried?

Yes, extremely varied...I believe that they were at least similar to the first image you posted. At the end of the day these are not bad hand protection at all...just a little awkward and with a few gaps.

Speaking to Nick Thomas about the escrimador mittens - he found them to offer good protection for the most part (some gaps at the sides of the thumb), but limited mobility, especially in the wrist and when grabbing/grappling.

That would be my experience as well.

Someone put this link up a while ago...

http://laxworld.com/catalog/product/id/CODM

Question is, were they any good? Anyone know? Because the price is pretty damn good.
Good enough that i'd consider getting a few pairs as an "it'll do for now" stopgap measure.
Advice, anyone?

For that price I'd wager they'd work alright...mind you the size seems a bit limited.
