What customers say about "Key Specs"
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • I also played a lot of catch with my buddies which is the best way to get it how you like it. I’ve had it a month and I feel this is by far the best glove I’ve ever owned.
  • I’m currently playing in college and would recommend this glove to everyone!
  • Amazing glove my son loves it, broke it in in less than a week.
  • Really nice golve. Looks better in real life than in the pictures.
  • The very best glove I've used. Nothing but quality, from the leather to the construction.
Rawlings Heart of The Hide Series Glove
  • This has been a great glove so far and would highly recommend it. I let it break in with use instead of steaming or creams.
  • Excellent product. Fits me like it was custom made. Reasonable break-in period.
  • Great glove though it is a little on the expensive side. My 14 year old loves his new glove.
  • Excellent glove, the quality is fantastic. Definitely will take time to break in.
  • As per my 17 yr old .. good fit and easy to break in. Very happy with purchase

What customers say about "Features"
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • Love the traditional 200 pattern of this glove.
  • Ive had a number of HOH gloves, and I have to say, I really like the leather of the Preferred over the HOH.
  • The close pattern is more of a thumb to pinky, and the glove will definitely take a while to break in
  • The Preferred has a much softer feel and the palm lining is a much better feel.
  • Like all Pro Preferred models, come extremely stiff but breaks in with some effort to form to your hand.
Rawlings Heart of The Hide Series Glove
  • Very nice glove for the price. The dual core did break in much easier than typical Heart of the Hide models.
  • Сlassic style goes with any uniform. Quality leather throughout. Should last for many seasons.
  • This glove fit the bill. A little stiff at first but breaks in nicely because of the high quality materials.
  • High quality glove. Still in process of breaking it in. FYI - any Rawlings Heart of the Hide glove will take a longer time to break in.
  • The glove is super thin in the palm area, i have another hide of the hide and this is not normal. it's a shame,
