Extremely happy with this product. Feels very comfortable, and is very well made. These gloves will not disappoint, as they are extremely well designed gloves. The padding on the knuckle will cushion any minor to intermediate pressure that you apply. Wouldn't recommend applying high pressure to the knuckle padding (such as punching a wall). There is also some padding on the palm, but doesn't pad the entire palm, just the fat part of the skin that is attached to your thumb. The fingers also have rubberized texture so that you can grip things easily. The 9's fit me perfectly. These gloves are not thick enough to prevent welting if you get hit on the finger areas, but this to me is a con, as it is not thick enough to decrease precision when trying to do detailed required actions with your fingers. These gloves also have very good ventilation if your hands get sweaty, meaning these gloves might not be the best to wear during the winter, as insulation is poor, but ventilation is great.
-Padding on knuckle enough to withstand minor to intermediate pressures (Falling and cushioning with your knuckles)
-Some padding on your palm
-Not to bulky where you can't do detail oriented actions.
-Great ventilation (GOOD FOR SUMMER)
-Bad insulation (BAD FOR WINTER)
-Not thick enough to prevent welting if you get hit in non padded areas (But prevents any decrease in precision when completing detail oriented actions with your fingers)
