Im a fan of Total Lacrosse but the store shouldnt carry this product. I bought these gloves at the beginning of this year and in my winter lacrosse game i got stick checked by a D-pole and the gloves didnt protect my hands. The end result was that i fractured my thumb and am out a whole season. I am also aggervated because i was sold these gloves. When my coaches looked at the gloves after the incident they were extremely upset that the employee at total lacrosse sold me a set of gloves that didnt meet high school standards. DO NOT BUY !
