These gloves were a gift for my 4 1/2 year old and I'm jealous, they are great quality and fit him perfect with some room to grow. He's able to put them on by himself. He uses them to hits pads, and roughhousing/grappling at home.
Feels true to size
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The following is a broad generalization of glove sizes but keep in mind that they vary a bit between different manufacturers. Please measure across the palm, just at the knuckles with the fingers slightly apart.
