Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

I sail every weekend in the summer. This is the second purchase of this glove. It's comfortable, grips well and lasts a long time. The only complaint I have is that the sizing changed from when I purchased the first pair years ago, to this pair. I had to re-order to get the next larger size.

    Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

    I like the feel and wear of Harken gloves. I bought the 1st & current pair to wear on vacation last June. Nine days of 6+ hours of sailing per day & , every other weekend since of 6+ hrs sailing time a day. Still going strong.
    I wear MCML in a golf glove, so this gloves is a touch short in length. Adjusting the movements of the sheets to your palm when dumping air works great. No wear or tear in the palm either or burning on fingertips.
    I always by 2 of everything for back up and , the large size is for the crew.
    Planning to finish the season with this same pair as another vacation is coming up next month. Awesome!

    Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

    The first couple of pair that I used lasted really well. The last pair just desentigrated in one season. The working part, the palms and the inside of the fingers seemed to be good quality leather and lasted pretty well. The remainder of the leather was really cheap leather and it just tore to shreads. It seems that they tried to save costs and got really cheap with the heal of the palm, the part that wraps arount the thumb and the sides of the fingers. I tried to keep using them because the working parts were still in reasonable shape but they just wouldn't stay on my hands. To bad. These used to be good gloves and the rest of the crew started buying them when they saw how good the first pair lasted.
    I own and race a 33 ft sloop in the great lakes. One to two times a week, May - Sept. As owner, I play all positions at some point in time. I would recommend them, but I would look them over good first.

    Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

    I've owned three pairs. The first were great and lasted a long time. The second set fell apart after two years. The fabric on the back of the hands and fingers just disintegrated, starting with the ventilation holes. Thinking this a fluke I bought a third pair. The stitching is completely falling apart after 1.5 seasons. I trim mainsheet on a J105, sailing maybe 25 days/season.

    Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

    I must not be using these gloves correctly, after two seasons they're raged and tearing. I love the fit but after a while the elastic becomes stretched out. When gybing I can't hold onto the mainsheet and end up with some amount of rope burn on my fingers. Time for a new pair...something else.

      Comments about 3/4 Finger Black Magic Sailing Gloves:

      I used the sizing guide and got small, but I went with a medium instead. The mediums fit well, if a touch tight. These gloves have good grip and feel durable, but I'm not convinced they stand out among their competitors. I do like the second securing tab, and the velcro seems to be of high quality.
