Thumb is bad.

I can't think of any other way to describe the way the material fits in the thumb to palm transition other than bad. My first pair had one glove that was quite a bit worse than the other, the replacement pair was more consistent. These should have never been released, or should be advertised as a semi-webbed glove. Everything else about the glove is fantastic, but there's no way that anyone tried this sample on before production and gave it a thumb's up.

great glove one small issue

Lets start off with this is a incredible glove. Super comfortable with amazing dexterity. Now there is one review on these already about the thumb not having enough material and this is true. In a relaxed half closed position the fit is fine but if you go to open your hand fully as if to "palm a basketball" there is a lack of leather in the transition area from the palm to thumb region.resulting in a fairly significant restriction in the ability to fully open your hand up and then impedes dexterity and comfort. the fit of the large is perfect accross my fingers, wrist, upper palm and everything else and am hesitant to up to a XL

My go-to utility hunting glove

I have been using the Shale Hybrid (haven't had the chance for the touch yet) for the last year. They have became my utility colder type hunting glove. Last year I wore them in a variety of applications ranging from cool and windy mornings glassing to crawling through sage flats chasing antelope in late August. The leather is incredibly soft (think tanned rabbit hide vs new baseball glove) and yet very strong.

Awesome glove; Short thumb

Man was I excited for these gloves to become available and even more excited when I saw them in person. They look and feel so nice. I ordered a Large (My hand measures 8” long with a 9” circumference). Overall the large fit snugly, but that is what I was looking for. My only problem was with the thumb length - when I opened my hand fully (imagine your going to palm a basketball) the webbing between my thumb and index finger was stretched very tight and no longer provided a comfortable fit. It’s like the thumb was too short. Called up First Lite customer service (awesome) and exchanged for XL.
The XLs were only slightly more roomy (which was good with me since the Ls were almost perfect). I had a very small amount of extra length in the pinky finger but that would have been okay. Unfortunately, the thumb on the XL had the same problem as the thumb on the L.
I mulled it over for a couple days because I really really loved these gloves, but ultimately I had to send them back. They just don’t fit for my hand. Hey! Maybe I just have an awkward hand. I have the Fingerless Talus. Granted they’re a totally different type of gloves but a size large in those fits me... like a glove...

Very Comfortable, Nice Fit

Haven't been able to put them to use yet but love the way they fit and feel. Was expecting them to feel a little heavier, but I'm not disappointed about it. These will be great for bow hunting, great dexterity and will be comforable to use with a release. They seem like they will hold up well and the touchscreen fingers work well on the phone.
