Bought a pair of these gloves Mid January 2014. Had a proctective piece by the thumb rip off November 2014. After first telling me the gloves were no longer under warranty (90 days), they said send the gloves back to them for repairs. They could not repair the gloves, but they did send me a new pair. I will give Bauer credit for doing that. But a hockey glove bearing the supposed top of the line designation "APX" should last loger than 11 months. Not the first Bauer product I had issues with either. Also had to have a pair of APX 2 skates replaced. Thankfully, the stitching separation happened during the first 90 days of ownership.
