KONA Riptide

Great gloves!!

We were told these gloves were great for grip and support. They are amazing so far! Good quality and we got my daughter's custom made with her name and jersey number. The gloves came quickly also... very pleased overall

Great glove overall, but the rear decoration comes off right away.

great glove except the decoration on the back is not well adhered to the glove. Bought the black out crimson as a replacement when it wore out.

Goalie gear

Our order came quickly the only issue is on one of the gloves , part of the rubber on a finger wasn't attached securely so we ended cutting the piece as we needed the gloves so we didn't send them back . Otherwise all good.
