Summary:
I paid $130 for this lovely glove. Like the rest of american 30 something men I love baseball and love to play or just toss the ball around with some friends. I had my old glove of 15 years finally give out on me so I had to go get a new one and I was thinking all I will find is junk,junk,junk on the shelves today. But I looked and found a nice Wilson glove then I looked at the Rawling Heritage Series XFG115S and it felt like my old glove and with a name like Rawlings how can you go wrong! My last one last me 15 years so who knows this one could be used by my son when he grows up.

The glove is made of quality leather(Made here in the USA)and has a nice give to it unlike some of the other stiff made leather gloves that you have to break in with a lot of use. I have heard that this glove is used by some of the top college players as well as some of the little leaguers. They come in all sizes from little guys to us big kids and yes they even make these gloves for softball use. The price is pretty good and can be as much as half of what a Wilson or a Mizuno glove.

So if you are sending you son or daughter off to college and they play ball then I really suggest that you purchase this glove for them and they will not be disappointed with it. The glove of the past is now the glove of the future.

Summary:
This glove was a gift for Christmas from an uncle a couple of years ago. I was disappointed at first since I already had a Rawlings glove that was well-broken in. However, I changed my opinion after a couple of uses. This glove was very quick to shape my hand and it still feels great. You know it is a great product just by the name- Rawlings. I am an outfielder and the deep pocket of this glove is excellent. It is more than my talent when I am able to reach out and snag a ball. I have owned this glove for a few years now and all I need to apply is some oil and the glove is as good as new. I recommend this glove to any baseball player in spite of the price, for it is well worth it.

Summary:
My son plays college baseball which means intense practice and / or games 6 days a week. We were looking for a glove that was made of quality material, would work as part of the hand, was durable and would build a perfect pocket. The Heritage series has provided exactly that. The quality of the leather is superb, and the appearance is professional. The glove has lasted through its first year and is working into the second season, you couldn't take it away from him at this point. I am in the process of purchasing a second Heritage Series glove to serve as a backup. Although they need very little breaking in, the comfort level needs to be established. The Heritage Series is highly recommended.
