E-Force Chill Racquetball Gloves

Comments: Using many different gloves for 13+ years of tournament play and this is my favorite.  I love the breath ability.

Comments: This glove has not been a good pick for me. Besides the fact that it's started coming apart (where the top mesh meets the leather of the middle finger) after only about 10 hours of play, my hand developed a serious blister after a few intense games. For a $20 glove, it should last a little longer; the HEAD Ballistic glove I used previously (and have since gone back to) is seven yes, 7 years old, and hasn't developed any rips or tears. And I should note, I'm not a diver, and am not particularly tough on gloves. I would recommend this only if you have *ridiculously* sweaty hands. Otherwise, just buy several regular (non-perforated) gloves and switch them between games.

Comments: I have had great luck with this glove.  I don't have sweaty hands so it hasn't hardened like some of the reviewers noted.  I have been playing one glove 3-4 times a week for the last 3 months.

Comments: I enjoy the glove when it's new however it becomes stiff and loses flexibility after a dozen games.  Washing doesn't seem to help. I  also wonder about the various resins that are supposed to absorb moisture..any luck with them?

Comments: The E-Force Weapon is better glove for me. Others have mentioned that the breathability is good, and I agree.  Problem that I also agree with is that this was not durable enough for me. It wore out quickly, even had a couple tear out in the palm of the hand within a couple of weeks.  The glove stretched out in the palm of the hand very quickly and separated from the stitching at the wrist, too.  Way over priced based on my experience with it, and even if 1/2 price, still wouldn't buy it again!

Comments: Excellent light-weight glove.  I ran out of my stock of cloth & leather Saranac gloves which I really loved because they breathed and were cool.  True, they didn't last a long time (about a year), but they were the most comfortable of gloves.  This has been a good replacement.  It breathes much better than other gloves, but it is light weight and doesn't last as long.  Worth the money for the comfort it provides.

Comments: I liked this glove at first, but after using it for few games, my racquet started to slip. I've never really had that problem with other gloves. My hands stayed nice and cool and didn't get sweaty, but the lack of grip took a toll on my game.

Comments: Definitely too thin.  It does 'work' by  keeping your hand cooler, but it is not worth the sacrifice in grip and protection.  The E-Force Weapon is far superior (and cheaper).

Comments: I recently got an E-Force Chill in my long search for a proper glove. I'm 6'6" tall and I have large hands. Most racquetball gloves fit too tightly, even in the largest size. The Ektelon gloves in XL are long enough in the fingers, but I've also got a large palm. The Chill is very comfortable (I put the velcro half-closed) and it makes a huge difference in my game. They stay nearly dry over the course of an hour, even on me - and I sweat buckets.

Comments: I've used the Chill for over 2 years. I switch gloves between games. They provide a great feel on the racquet handle. When the gloves begin feeling a little stiff I wash them in a gentle soap and rinse in warm water about every 6 weeks. The gloves stay very playable.

Comments: Strange feel as this is a very thin glove. It is obviously geared towards people with sweaty hands. Not for you if you don't have sweaty hands. It felt too thin as if I didn't have a glove on at all.

Comments: Plenty tacky; the porous palm gives a kind of textured grip that works well.
Comfort 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Comments: The glove did not have the comfort of a cabretta leather palm, but was not at all uncomfortable.
Breathability 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Comments: This is by far the best glove for keeping cool. Both the top of my hand as well as the palm stayed dry and cool.
Durability 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Comments: Have not played long enough to tell yet.
Overall Rating 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Comments: It is what it is, a glove that keeps your hand cool if you have a problem with sweaty hands. I personally prefer the feel of cabretta leather even if I have to switch gloves more often.
