Do you play with a glove? If so, which glove and what do you like about it?

I play with the gryphon gmitt G4 glove. I like the closed palm feature this glove has which allows me to grip my stick well. This glove also gives me great protection on the top of my hand which makes me feel comfortable going in for block tackles and knowing that if I get hit, I will be protected.

I play with the TK shinguards. I chose these because they are very comfortable to wear and give me a lot of protection for my shins.
