Bought these gloves to replace the so called "work" gloves from others. You know, the ones that never really fit, the gauntlet is too short to protect your wrist, and the stitching falls apart after the second time you wear them. These gloves are NOT those gloves.
I bought two pairs to try them out. Loved them and bought eight more pairs to last me a few years. They are great for handling branches and general garden and forest work. I used them when I am moving limbs for chipping. I also dig with them and then have even used them in planting bushes and roses. They kept the thorns out!

I love these gloves! They're about a Polartec 100 weight if you can think of them in that concept, but with a grid like pattern on the inside (similar to the P'gonia R1 fleece). I've worn them alone in the low 30s and they kept my hands warm. They are not windproof and there is no grip to the fingers/thumbs. So if you're looking for that this is not your glove. But if you want a simple heavier weight glove that is warmer than a polypro silk liner, then this could be your glove. I really like them. Sizing is spot on if you measure around your palm.
