So I got my Vindico Stealth Gloves today...
:wasim
Yea some first impressions I will give you guys a full update after the nets this week but these are AWESOME!!!!
The Look
The gloves are covered in patent black leather, which makes them stand out alot more than most gloves on the market. I happen to be a sucker for the black leather or black/red leather look and Vindico caters to my taste. The labels and emblems on the gloves are superb and look classy not ill fitted or tilted (another plus with some AU/UK companies even failing at this), I think one of the good parts about Vindico is their softs are made in small batches and Gau (The Owner) is able to pick out any potential errors or problems quick which is not the case with alot of bigger brands...although I must admit I love Puma Softs
The Feel/Comfort
This is another plus point for Vindico's gloves. I believe Jason(HammerMellet) in his review of a couple gloves rated Vindico's Signature Plus as 3 (Max) for comfort and I had a pair and I agree.
My Signature gloves are very comfy, more so than most softs I have worn or use (BAS Shadow, Puma Calibre), and the Stealths are just as comfortable on par with my Puma Iridiums. So these are VERY comfortable
The Protection
The protection for the Signature I felt was above what Jason rated but their is no doubt that the Stealths (as well as Patriot Series) are all a lot beefier in the protection department. The fiber/plastic shield on the bottom two fingers is significantly harder than the Signature's. The gloves are very flexible with lots of splits but as mentioned before even with significant pressing did not compress enough to be felt on the bottom two fingers of the bottom hand and the top two of the top hand.
The Overall
Yea so I like these gloves, they are gonna be the gloves I use for games (too flashy for the nets) :afridi
I really think they are flexible, and protective. They also have a look which stands out and makes you pop as a batsman. I also like that this is a local (US) guy who is making some top notch equipment and genuinely values customer input about his products. I mean I guess we in the US could be considered lucky that this guy (Gau) is making products based on our feedback and is able to assure us of its quality unconditionally. I whole heartily urge you guys to take a look at Vindico's products and talk to them at VindicoCricket@gmail.com, to see what they have to offer. If I seem biased in my review it is mainly because after speaking to Gau this weekend regarding these gloves, I was pleased with the direction he wants his brand to go and also because he has a pretty good knowledge of cricket and cricket gears
Thanks for Reading guys

Nice stuff Kabir!! I really liked the Signature gloves myself; the only complaint was it was a little small. GS is a really nice guy and they are putting in a serious effort to keep improving Vindico. Good luck to them and congrats to you :D
