After 3 months of heavy farm use, constantly soaking wet, landscaping, chainsaws, equipment you name it. On my hands 8hrs a day. Started to wear out and get small holes but I have done so much in these it’s pretty amazing. They do start to wear day 1 with little threads fraying and such, it’s nothing really, but rest assure it takes a lot lot to wear the layers away. Someone buying these for around the house and yard would definitely get years out of these. I have purchased 4 additional pair I liked them that much. Also, they’re pretty warm. I wear these and nothing else outside all winter, never felt like I needed more.
