The rubber in the palm area is super sticky and if you wash these gloves, they become even stickier. This is what the gloves looked like when they came out of the washing machine. Dirt and hair stuck to the gloves to the point that they were less clean when they came out than when they went in. I'm so sad that I bought more than one set of these before actually using them. They fit and look great as long as you never use them!
Compared to my old pair, I love these gloves, they are very comfortable. I have medium size hands and they fit perfectly with a little extra room to move my hands around. It is mostly breathable, very little sweat on my hands after hours of heavy use. I like the anti-slip surface on the palm side and makes it good for gardening, trimming branches, whacking weeds, taking out trash, just about anything. It is also durable. So far, I'm still on my first pair and it's still holding up well after numerous uses. I really wasn't expecting much from it considered what I pay for 6 pairs but am very surprise with the quality of these gloves. Will buy again once I go thru all six pairs. The only con I find so far is that it doesn't withstand thorns so be careful when picking weeds with thorns. I got poked a few times.
LOVE these garden gloves. I normally have issues with garden gloves. Either they are too hot, too tight, too loose, they do not allow me to do certain tasks that require details, or they do not keep my hands clean. So I usually end up taking off my gloves and then forgetting to put them on. Cumbersome.
However, these gloves are GOLDILOCKS! They fit comfortably, so not cause my hands to sweat, Keep my hands fairly clean even though I dig into the wet dirt for planting, allow me to use my garden tools with precision, and even let me scroll through my song list on my phone! (Was not expecting that!)
After going through 4 or 5 different pairs in the last year, life got considerably better as I attained 'man of the hour' status for finding these gloves for my wife. They fit, they protect from thorns and other pokey, prickly, nasty things, and they stay cool. That counts for a lot here in Las Vegas! The large number of very positive reviews are well deserved as she raved about how clever I was for finding these for her. Well............one does what one can........and I felt more or less obligated to make 'hero' status available to those who seek it for the paltry sum that it takes to make these gloves a part of your happy home. Put the remote down and go order these and let joy be unrestrained!
I am a gardener, and work outside a lot! I have tried so many different types of gloves. I wasn't sure about these just because of the fact I have used the 'breathable rubber coated' gloves before and my hands were sweaty, and made blisters. I've used these for about a week now, and they are pretty good. Yes on hot days my hands get a little moist (sorry I know people hate that word), but overall not bad. I've worked with thorny brush, and in the dirt - hands are clean and the thorns really have to be pretty large to penetrate completely. Overall - I like them.
I’m a large size 8 hand so was worried these would be too tight but they’re fine. My #1 glove was Atlas in large but can’t find them anymore, took a gamble on these and they’re fine. What I like is that so many come in a pack that if you work gardening, this is a good buy since many times throughout the day I need to switch into a fresh comfortable pair. They wash well and are durable.
These fit well, I have medium hands and the med fit perfectly. The rubber on the nad size is flexible but sturdy. I was picking thorny weeds and they held up well. They also did not leak when the rubber side got wet. The wrist band is snug, fitted without being too tight. I would definitely recommend these gloves for the price!! Very reasonable!
