I have always used applicators with finger pockets for applying tire dressings, but these larger ones are great for applying waxes or sealants to the paint. Especially beneficial for those spray products that are applied by spraying the applicator and not the panels.
Higher quality than other microfiber applicators I have used. Does not shed and I really like having the pocket on the back for extra stability and to help the pad from hitting the ground. Great for applying wax by hand.
On both of the applicators I bought, the hand pocket did not stretch as much as the picture shows. My hand pockets came only half-way down so I never felt I had much control while using them.
These are excellent for various products having to be applied by hand. They clean up very well also...
