Much respect to kangaroos.

I've had my Held Steves for a little while now. I haven't said anything because I wanted to make sure. And part of me still can't believe I spent 125 bucks on gloves. But I gotta say, they are amazing. I didn't think it could make such a difference, but they live up to their billing. I am not sorry I spent 125 bucks on gloves. If you're looking for a nice pair, I would defininetely consider these. I have long narrow fingers, and the gloves fit a little long, but as soon as you put your hand around the grips it is apparent how much thought went into these things. I guess the best endorsement I can give is that I have never had a pair of protective gloves that I wasn't aware of ALL THE TIME. Itchy, too short. Too hard. Whatever.

So, long story short, where do I get a full body suit made of kangaroo leather?

So many good things are. Did I say kangaroo leather? That's preposterous. Like Kangaroos are made of leather. Laughable.

(You can't rat me out, I know where you live.)

I hear Naugas are on the endangered species list. Not banned in Ca. but they are getting thin.

It's amazing how soft Roo leather is, yet it's stronger than Moo leather.

I love my Helds, too..

Shameless self plug:
If someone were after a good deal on a pair of Large + or size 9.5 Held Sprint Gloves, I might know of a pair for sale on eBay right now.. Black and grey, they're new but don't have tags.. Search under the seller name: paper
