The glove arrived, amazingly, within a week! The picture for the glove makes the colours look a bit washed out, but they are quite dark and make for a really attractive glove. On arrival it was quite stiff and took about a week to soften it up until I was comfortable wearing it, from then it took another week to be pretty much game ready (although I do like my gloves quite stiff). The poron xd padding makes the glove comfortable and eases the impact of hard hit/thrown balls. The glove shapes really well, it's easily manipulated but stays firm and can be reshaped. All in all it's a great glove and would recommend it to anyone, no problems at all.
