Asian Mart Glove Review
Here's a little review of these gloves that I found in an Asian Mart. Due to the language, I'm not sure on the brand of these, but the logo on the cuff is just a big 'C' in a circle. I know that they're made in Korea, but I don't know a lot else about them, including what size they were, again due to the language on the packaging.
My initial thoughts were that the rubber has a very nice feel to it - lovely and soft. They're unlined so they're nice and rubbery on the inside too, and as you can see, are a fantastic snug fit and come up to my elbow. The end of the cuff is slightly ribbed / elasticated, which allows them to fit nice and tight around the cuff, but in my ideal world I think I would have preferred the cuff to be completely smooth.
The gloves had a weird vanilla scent to them. Personally, not a big fan of scented gloves (I actually really love the scent of rubber) but they'd fade after a while, so that's no big issue.
I found it a big shame that the grip on the palm was so harsh. In my opinion, that was a big let down on what would otherwise have been a really lovely pair of gloves, and for that reason alone, I actually used these to clean up a mess shortly after I recorded a video (My jacket got peed on by a dog
) with them and they then got thrown in the trash. If not for the grip, I probably would have really liked these and kept them in my collection.
For that reason alone, I wouldn't recommend these. They do look great though, and looking back at the photos, I do kinda regret not keeping them just for photos because the fit and length is really great on these.
The video will go live on my patreon tomorrow, so be sure to subscribe if you'd like to see more of these!
