Product Fail :( -- Inesis Resistance golf glove.

First, importantly, I want to say that the Inesis brand of golf and other sports gear, and apparel and activewear, under the Decathlon umbrella has some excellent true value buys - ie. a good quality product at a good price.

* Note:
This is not a full product review but rather a quick "caveat emptor" of a product that did not meet expectations.

OK so I've purchased several things from Inesis and Decathlon in the past .. including golf gear, some clothes, a surfboard bag, a bike .. and have usually been satisfied with what I've received. One of those times I must've been a few $$ short of free shipping and looked for something else I might need to make it to the minimum - and who doesn't need another golf glove? - and, at that time, this particular glove model was not just on sale but was the only one in stock in my size.

Next important note:
Inesis sports gear is divided into categories - usually three - by price such that you can choose either.. (1) a premium level product - "900", (2) a middle of the road product - "500" or (3) a budget / entry level product - "100".

The "Resistance" glove is in the 100 - budget / entry level category.

It's a nice lightweight glove made from synthetic materials with a large stretch area across the knuckles and also between each of the fingers and at the base of the thumb; plus .. a feature that I like .. there is an additional "wear" patch on the heel of the palm. The fit on me is actually really good and it is very comfortable. 

But after only 4 or so uses, here's what happened ...

1. the back of the velcro closure tab came unglued into two pieces  -- yes, the glove could still function and yes, it could be glued back together -

..fyi here's what the back of the glove should look like -

But - then I discovered...

2. that extra wear patch on the palm had also become unglued from the main material of the glove and was "squirming" around when I gripped a club -- yes, this affected the feel and playability of the glove -

That ridge in the red circle shows how I could pinch the patch material and separate it from the underlying main glove.

--

Other:

Storage - when not used any extra gloves are stored with extra golf balls in my finished basement, so relatively temperature and humidity controlled.

Customer Service - did not contact them as this was bought this last Winter, and for only $5 if I remember right, so just didn't bother. Note that on new and unused products there is a full 1 year return policy.

--

So, unfortunately, my experience with the 100/budget version of the Inesis golf glove was not worth it to save a few extra $$.

Thanks for the info and will stay clear.  I've been using the MG elite gloves for years and have been very happy with them.

Nice! Didn't think many on here were using entry level gloves... Have heard good things about MG .. I'll have to check them out.

Perhaps just a bad production lot?  I get the nagging feeling that everything we buy right now is subject to production and quality woes as result of Covid.  Rather it be a golf glove than a set of truck tires.

^ HA! Good point, though .. yeah it's always possible it was a one-off bad batch. If I'm ordering more from them in the future maybe I'll test out another glove...
