One of the primary complaints about protective gloves are that they restrict movement and make manual tasks more difficult. The Turtleskin Alpha was designed specifically with this in mind and as such is far more flexible than more commonly available options. The outer shell is soft and comfortable with the Turtleskin material layer along the palm being thin enough so that it does not get in the way.
