    Ordered Fox Dirtpaws, received Unabombers, should I keep them?

    Hey guys,
    I recently bought some Fox Dirtpaws on the internet, but he accidently sent me Fox Unabombers. Should I keep them or send them back? He wouldn't lose money if I kept them, its more a question of which gloves are better? He hasn't asked for them back, and I would send them if he did, I just can't justify waiting another week (need them for a ride this weekend anyway) and spending my money on shipping because of his mistake. So, Unabomber vs dirtpaw, which wins?

    This big difference is the knuckle protection. The Unabombers have more significant padding up on the top of your knuckles, the Dirtpaws do not. What type of riding are you doing?

    Unabombers are one of my favorite gloves.

    I normally ride all mountain, so the protection would be good. I was just concerned about stitching coming loose, because ive heard thats common with Unabombers.

    Never worn unabombers, but dirtpaws are awesome. I've worn my pair for about 4 years on dirt bikes and mountain bikes, still going strong. Admittedly I don't ride nearly as much as some, but usually at least 1-2 times per week.

    I use both. Dirtpaws for XC/AM and unabombers for AM/DH. Very different gloves for different purposes. If you like a little added protection, they fit well, and do not mind a little more hot, then you might keep the Unas.

    My Unabomberw haven't started falling apart yet. I have used dirtpaws quite a bit over the years, and eventually they, like all gloves, start falling apart.
