This glove is very good. The leather is very sturdy yet the break in time is not bad. Will last a very long time. This glove is comparable to an A2K but at a fraction of the cost. The glove fits very well and feels good. The only con to this glove is that it only comes with a 12" size. Because it does not come is a 12.5" it is not useful as an out field glove. The pocket was better than expected and forms well.
