Crafted from ultra-premium steer-hide leather, and with a Speed Shell back, the 2022 12.5-inch HOH R2G ContoUR fit outfield glove is a great option for players with smaller hands. Through extensive research and rigorous testing, we created the ContoUR fit to offer a high quality, pro-level glove with a better fit for those athletes. As a result, those players will have more glove control, with the same quality and performance that’s expected from our renowned Heart of the Hide gloves.
The re-engineered 12.5-inch 302-pattern on this glove perfectly blends into its ContoUR fit design too. The ContoUR fit offers slimmer, lowered finger stalls and a tighter hand opening. It also features an adjustable, pull-lace wrist system for a more custom fit too! This technology combines to allow the glove to sit more firmly around the back of your hand so it truly ‘fits like a glove.’ In addition, we’ve also pulled the outer shell down to make the back of the glove more accessible for even greater glove control as well!
All of our Heart of the Hide R2G gloves feature an additional 25% break-in for a more game-ready feel. You’ll be able to rip off the tags and hit the field right away. This 2022 12.5-inch HOH R2G ContoUR fit outfield glove is the perfect choice for younger players looking for a superior performing glove so they can play like their favorite pros.

Our Glove Conditioning: 1-2-3 Perfection!
Step 1: The right tool for the job: We have 6 different glove shaping mallets in our shop as every glove needs something different, and your glove is no unique so it gets special treatment as well. We use each specially designed mallet to either break down each glove at its specific flex points, form a pocket or help break in the palm with a weighted head. This specific working of the leather increases the effectiveness of the manual labor process. Since every glove is built differently, this is where our knowledge and experience comes into play. The forming of the leather on the these proper crease points while holding the integrity of the rest of the glove is the key to success. This process is completed in 4-5 sessions over the next 2-3 days. Working the gloves by hand along with our conditioning is the key to proper break in.
Step 2: Hydrate the leather: We apply a small amount of specially formulated glove conditioner to the leather and laces, both inside and out. This conditioner will be absorbed by the glove’s pores which helps keep the glove in top condition all year. This extra conditioning step will help by keeping dirt and debris out of the newly stretched out leather pores. Hydrating the leather will also help the glove last longer as it will resist absorbing water which can lead to early dry rot.
Step 3: Proper form: To get the perfectly formed pocket, each glove has 100 weighted baseballs caught in the web helping form the pocket and laces. Once the glove has a nice pocket formed, we need to make sure the glove maintains it true form en route back to you. After the glove conditioning process is completed, we put a ball in each glove and wrap them up with rubber bands prior to shipping them back to you. This ensures the glove hold its form on its way back to you. We do these extra steps to ensure the full effects of our break in process.
