I really liked this glove because of its snug fit. I may be romanticising because I was playing in a futsal tournament in Amsterdam with a works football team but it was fantastic. The 3mm latex palm is good for absorbing impact and it stood up very well on the solid vinyl floor that futsal is played on. The elasticated wrist cuff ensures a comfortbable fit and prevents the glove 'rolling' on the hand.

The Grip 3 technology is a bit of a gimmick however it offers the 'wrap over' thumb, index and little finger which improves grip and also adds to stability with wear. This is because classic 'flat palm' gloves are notorious for having the seams stressed and the back-hand, gussets and palm separate however the Grip 3 gives you a couple of weeks longer wear from the latex.

Once again the mesh joins (wrist to backhand, wrist to palm and the thumb) increase comfort as the gloves stretches to the natural contours of the hand. The only criticism of this feature is that with time and sweat, the mesh shreds away quicker than the robust palms.
The gloves are decorated in a simple gold/white/black colourway is simple that doesn't try too hard.

(I appreciate that it's hard to see but take my word for it, I am wearing the Vapor Grip 3 in the picture).
