Our Two Cents
I really like the Overlord Short gloves. It can be hard to find an all leather glove that is well ventilated for summer use. I feel like a lot of typical summer gloves give up a lot of protection, but the Overlord gloves have all of the protective features you would expect in a glove, without being too hot for warm weather use. The split molded knuckle protector has intake vents that direct air straight onto your hands, in addition to protecting you from impacts. A reinforced leather palm is thin enough to provide excellent control feel, while thick in the right places for durability and abrasion resistance. The back of the hand has perforations to allow hot air to escape, and the gussets between the fingers are mesh for plenty of airflow. I found these gloves to be extremely comfortable right out of the package, with supple leather and external stitching on the fingers.
