Not tested yet but arrived quickly
13 July 2023  | 

Thankfully I've not had to test the gloves in a dog scuffle, hope I never do! But I'm glad to have them, they look like good quality and seem well made, and they arrived quickly. They're expensive so it was a bit of an outlay for the charity, and I hope I never find out how well they work, but it's peace of mind having them here.
