Hand armor in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age belong to three classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Glove class of hand armor, and as such they are generally equippable by all Adepts in each game.

All gloves that are counted as "common" are gloves that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All gloves that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger gloves that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one glove can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each glove are quite reliable indicators of how good each glove is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A glove that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other glove even if the other glove has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive glove. Therefore, the following gloves are all arranged by price.
