Top Positive Review


I am really enjoying this glove so far. The leather is thin and supple, so it only took me a single archery practice to get it worn in. In some other reviews, I have seen people mention that they think the glove is too thin. I am shooting with a 30# recurve bow, and for a lighter weight bow, I think this glove is perfect.

Before I bought this glove, I spent a bit of time wavering over which size to purchase. Finally, I did a little research, and I found a sizing guide listed on the 3Rivers Archery website. According to that website, Damascus gloves are listed in Mens sizes. Here is the size chart I found:

“Extend your hand flat. With a measuring tape, wrap it around the hand just below the knuckles and fingers, but above the thumb. Apply the measurement to the chart below.

Damascus Gloves
If Hand Measures (Men’s Sizes)
8″ = Small
9″ = Medium
10″= Large
11″= X-Large

Based on this size chart, I purchased a size Small. I was a little concerned about that when I ordered, because while my fingers are short, they are also thick, but the fingers on this glove are wide, so the glove I ordered fits pretty well.

I have only noticed two small issues with the glove so far. One is that that velcro strap around the wrist can be a bit scratchy at times. Also, I have had the seam for the reinforced tips catch on the string a couple times when I’ve released. I’m fairly new to archery though, so I may have been releasing improperly.

Overall, I really do like this glove. I find it much nicer to use than a finger tab, and I’m hoping it will last me a long while.

Top Critical Review


It’s alright I guess. It doesn’t quite fit my hand. According to the instructed measurements, I’m in between a small and medium. I got the medium and it fits funny. There were small gaps with the material along the back of my hand, and there was too much space at the finger tips. I couldn’t adequately judge my hand position at my anchor point due to my face being unable to distinguish which part of my hand was against my face, and my hand’s inability to feel what part of my face it was pressed against. My mentor gave me a leather finger tab which works much better for me and gives me a much smoother release and better sensitivity and feel. It does protect my fingers from numbness, looks nice and is comfortable, but then I use a 35 lb bow. Never buy a glove without trying it on first.

Customer Questions & Answers


How is the sizing? What size would a 10 year old use?
Answer:

Even the small size option may be too big for a 10 year old, my small size has middle finger 3.25 inches from tip to base, and then 4 inches from the base of middle finger to the velcro strap at wrist. Width across the index+middle+ring fingers is about 3 inches. These dimensions are when worn, and after I had stretche??

how do you measure your hand so correct size is ordered? thank you
Answer:

I like my shooting glove fingers tight when I use the Mediterranean 3 finger draw, and I know I typically get medium gloves, so I ordered a small and soaked it in bees wax and heated the leather portion with a hair dryer so it molded to my fingers. I even flipped the fingers inside out so as to trim off some of the sti??

How is the sizing?
Answer: I would say true to size, if not a little big. Got this for a gift for my husband. He loved it.

Is this black or dark brown?
Answer: Dark Brown
