Our Two Cents

About this sale and warranty: Held gloves (and other apparel products) are made by Held GmbH in Germany and have been distributed in the US for the last 10 years or so by Held USA, which is a small “mom and pop” out of North Carolina. In mid-December, Held USA announced they were quitting business. And at that time, we bought their remaining inventory of Held gloves in the US as a closeout/liquidation. Other retailers may also have some gloves in their stock as well but there has not yet been a new distributor established and therefore no more stock is currently available. We are hoping for the announcement of a new US distributor because we think they are a fine product line, our customers enjoy them and we experience very few warranty issues. And speaking of warranty, since there is currently no US distributor to inspect and repair/replace gloves as a result of a warranty claim, there is no way for consumers to exercise a warranty claim. We will of course still accept returns of new/unused gloves within 30 days of your order (just like any other product), but we will not offer any warranty whatsoever on any glove that has been used or not returned during that time frame. We are hopeful a new distributor will be announced and they will provide normal warranty coverage, but right now, we can’t tell you when or if that will happen.


About this product: I’ve always been a Held glove fan. I think the quality of their products just really shows. These new Phantom gloves feel like I’m pulling Rolls Royces on my hands! The palms are kangaroo which is commonly known to be one of the best leathers for gloves. The leather is thin, but very abrasion resistant and the kangaroo is also more tolerant of moisture and salt in sweat. The palms are unlined to give you the most feel for the controls. The back of the glove is lined in Kevlar fabric which is backed by Suprotect foam, so with the gloves on, the back of the hand feels like it is enveloped by perfectly formed padding. The stainless knuckle protector feels super durable and looks super sharp. Like the former version of the Phantom, this glove uses stingray material for abrasion protection on the ball of the thumb and there are other panels of similar, but man-made Superfabric material on the heel of the hand, the gauntlet and the backs of the fingers. The cuff is adjustable and there is a Velcro-close strap at the wrist that secures the glove on your hand. The overall package feels just as secure as a glove can feel, and I bet after a dozen wearings, these gloves would feel like they were made just for you. :: Paul, 03-28-13
