Different from other full palm design gloves because it has a thinner leather, made from doe skin, that allows the bowhunter to have a better feel of the string. Features an adjustable Velcro closure wrist strap to ensure a snug fit.
From the Manufacturer
Created by Damascus Protective Gear, leaders in full body protective gear for law enforcement, military, and sporting applications. The Damascus 3 finger archery glove is different from many other archery glove styles because it has a soft, thin (but durable) leather which allows the bow-hunter to have a perfect "feel" of the string. The tips are reinforced to improve longevity as well. Sold in singles.

Before I bought this glove, I spent a bit of time wavering over which size to purchase. Finally, I did a little research, and I found a sizing guide listed on the 3Rivers Archery website. According to that website, Damascus gloves are listed in Mens sizes. Here is the size chart I found:
"Extend your hand flat. With a measuring tape, wrap it around the hand just below the knuckles and fingers, but above the thumb. Apply the measurement to the chart below.
If Hand Measures (Men's Sizes)
8" = Small
9" = Medium
Based on this size chart, I purchased a size Small. I was a little concerned about that when I ordered, because while my fingers are short, they are also thick, but the fingers on this glove are wide, so the glove I ordered fits pretty well.
I have only noticed two small issues with the glove so far. One is that that velcro strap around the wrist can be a bit scratchy at times. Also, I have had the seam for the reinforced tips catch on the string a couple times when I've released. I'm fairly new to archery though, so I may have been releasing improperly.
Overall, I really do like this glove. I find it much nicer to use than a finger tab, and I'm hoping it will last me a long while.
Upon first look, the glove was quite dusty and had that attic smell. Still does. Comfort wise, it is as advertised: soft, supple, and comfortable. However, my issue lies in the wrist strap. My OMP glove used leather as the strap so it’s much more comfortable, but this glove uses the the bare Velcro strap as the wrist strap, which cuts into your wrist and hand. I may got to a tailor to get this fixed. Honestly, that confused me as to why they went with that idea.
Lastly, the colour of the glove looks nothing like the glove advertised. The one in the photo looks more black/dark brown. The one I received was more like white coffee/milked coffee. Although, it’s not a bad pairing for most traditional gear, my set up is almost entirely black, so to have a light brown glove is extremely odd.
Don't be macho about ordering a shooting glove. Check the sizing guides online. I have, what most people would call, large-sized hands. However, my hands are narrow, and a medium stretched to give me a good fit. If you have a bunch of excess hanging off the end, you're going to get slapped in the face or mess up your release. The glove will break in some.
If you're shooting a 50 pound bow or under, give this a try. If you're shooting a tree trunk with a string on it, go for something heavier, preferably with cordovan or nylon reinforced tips or finger stalls.
