Now that I've tried these overhyped gloves I see that they do constrict to ease hand pain, but the shoddy construction makes them a waste of a good idea. The seams are splitting after the first time I put them on, and they snag on the velcro wrist band when adjusting the strap. A larger size would defeat the compression aspect. Trash designed for a quick buck!
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
