Beneath the palm side of this glove is a 5 inch by 1 1/2 inch hard plastic insert with high density foam padding. The glove also features a two inch wide elasticized wrist band which is secured by a hook and loop fastener. The glove is designed for use in the sport of skate boarding. The essential character is imparted by the leather.
