The Pro Preferreds have a reputation that certainly precedes them. When one simply hears the name “Pro Preferred”, they know that they are dealing with baseball mitt excellence.
Kip Leather is the material that is used to build the shell of the mitt. And when compared to other high-quality leather materials, many mitt aficionados feel that the break-in on Kip Leather items can be a little quicker. That being said, we would still recommend planning for a pretty lengthy break-in to get this thing ready for games. But if you see the break-in through, you’ll be very happy with what you have once the mitt is ready to take into a game.
As well, the inside palm lining of the mitt is made from sheepskin leather that is tanned by Pittards leather company. Having that material on the inside of the mitt will create a very comfortable experience when wearing this mitt.
