Product Review: XProtex Batting Gloves – The Best We’ve Found


product reviews graphic

When my kids started playing baseball, I assumed that all batting gloves would last as long as the average fielder’s glove. Ya know, at least a season.


Usually after about six weeks of wear, my boys complain of small tears between the fingers, shriveling, stiffening and the unfortunate effects of pine tar during wood bat tournaments.

For the past few months, however, my 10u son has been using XProtex Protective batting gloves for every at-bat. And he loves them.


Seriously? I didn’t take a single photo of him batting? Oh well, here’s what it looks like to score a run wearing XProtex batting gloves. They come in lots of different colors.

He says they fit perfectly and don’t give him blisters like his last pair did. Throughout summer Pony League All Stars, he’s worn them multiple times per week for every practice and game. Trying to calculate how many at-bats his XProtex gloves have endured is giving me a headache. Let’s just say it’s been a whole bunch. And they still look and feel great according to the kid. Hardly any signs of wear at all. I have a feeling they’ll be around for a while.

I’d never even heard of the brand XProtex until a friend told me about it. Aside from their “creative” spelling (which drives me a little crazy), I’m super impressed by the cushioning and shock absorption that XProtex products provide. Their gloves’ A.I.C. technology protects the inner wrist area, doubling the amount of impact load absorption that the joint can withstand. Yet this extra protection doesn’t affect fit or flexibility.

Here’s a really short video that explains a lot about hands and impact and gloves and protection.

This chart shows how their protection stacks up against other brands. Pretty impressive!

I’m afraid this post is starting to sound like an infomercial. So, I’ll keep it short.

Bottom line, if you’re in the market for a new pair of batting gloves, try a pair of XProtex. Your kid will love them for their style and comfort and you’ll love them for their durability.
