Held makes a good glove. I've road tested Steves and Phantoms. Both saved my hands. I hit hard enough with the Phantoms to burn through the Kevlar on the knuckles and wrist. Aside from a little bruising both times my hands were fine..

You noted that the Evo had a tight thumb and long fingers. I found this to be the same on my Evos. Oddly, on my Held Steve's and Held Rain Storm, the fit is perfect. I ended up going a size larger on the Evos. Better long fingers than thumbs that fall asleep.

I haven't crash tested mine and I hope I don't, but it's good to know they perform well.

Interesting. I guess I'm not the only one. After mine were broken in the thumb loosened up enough to be good.

I have been eyeballing the Held Warm n Dry gloves too. Any experience with those?
