I bought these gloves for my 11 yr old son. His big brother has a pair of very pricey name brand tactical gloves that my little one has been very envious of for months. Sadly, the designer of the name brand gloves does not make them in children's sizes, so that led me on an internet search to find something that would appease my 11 yr old's desire to feel as cool as his older brother. These gloves did the trick. Note* even though they are sold as a size "small" they are still pretty large and will not fit a younger child. The fingers of the gloves extend about 1/2 an inch past my son's fingers. If he keeps them in good condition, he should be able to wear them for the next 2 years.
