I got these for myself in a Medium. Usually I'm in the odd size range of M/L and that was true for these gloves: some of the fingers in the Medium were just a little too short. Fortunately, they fit my wife just fine.
Her first use was to go out and pull weeds on a sunny, 90+F day. She appreciated the grey backing not absorbing as much heat from the sun as her darker colored gloves. Her hands were warm but never hot and sweaty. What got these gloves to 5 stars for her was when she realized she had just carelessly pulled up and tossed away a prickly pear cactus without getting poked. Same thing with the Russian thistle. Those two yard invaders have stabbed through many other pairs of gardening gloves.
I have XXL hands, at least according to glove size. My favorite gloves used to be Firm Grip General Purpose from Home Depot at about the same price as these Handlandy gloves. At some point Firm Grip changed the design which also changed the sizing and my hands no longer fit into them. So, I'm constantly on the search for the right gloves.
I was disappointed to find that my search hasn't ended yet. When I tried these XXL gloves on I found that my index and middle finger were not long enough and fit too tightly and the tips of my finger were rubbing the seam on the inside. This was causing the fingers to pull on the glove when moving them. Meanwhile, there was tons of extra room in the thumb and pinky fingers. The sizing of these gloves is just wrong. However I did like the faux suede padding on the palm and the knuckle protection on the back. The touchscreen sensitivity on the thumb, index and middle finger also worked well. For some with smaller hands these gloves may work out well, but if you have extra large hands like myself you may want to look elsewhere.
These are lightweight and work pretty well for moderate mechanic work. The cushions pop up more than I would prefer, but it does provide moderate protections. I do like the stretch and feel they’ll get more comfortable with wear. Also, I wish the velcro wasn’t so large. I share these gloves with my son that has bigger hands; and he has the same complaint that the velcro kinks weird in the wrist. But if you’re looking for moderate gloves to do light mechanical work, we would recommend.
I've been putting these through the gauntlet. They've been used to cut wood, dig post holes, mix cement, build an animal barn (just 16x10), and fence an acre of pasture. So far they've exceeded my expectations. These gloves are comfortable even in 90 degree 85% humidity Michigan warmth. Yet to wear through them and the stitching is solid.
Excellent and durable and long lasting! Not sure about the touch screen ability, never tried using it, but for: durability, comfort, warmth and longevity they are top notch!
I like the fact that these fit more like latex gloves than the typical oversized leather men’s work gloves. I can use all my fingers easily, and don’t have to take my gloves off to use my phone.
I use these when wood turning. The grips provide a solid hold on the chisel and I can still turn the volume up in my tune from Pandora! I love that it also has a Velcro closure at the wrist. Keeps wood chips out, and adds safety while Turning.
Got them for my guy for work. He said they work well to protect his hands. The most important part is that the hook and loop closure is on the outside and doesn't bother his skin on the wrist. They are thick and of good quality. Seems like they will last a long time. Used for handling cardboard boxes at work.
I'm using gloves to handle some random equipment and roll 1/2" hose on an electric reel. I use one hand to guide the hose equally on a spinning reel. These will absorb more (not all but more) of that friction than other gloves I've used, and I'm happy about that. I didn't try to use my phone's touchscreen with the gloves on, the work i do in them is too dirty, so i would always take them off before using my phone. Customer service was quick in solving my issue regarding size, which is something I really appreciate. Good purchase.
I have tissue paper skin on my arms and I walk around looking like I have bleeders under the skin. I also do a lot of gardening and when a branch barely touches my arms there is immediate bleeding under the skin. Don't know what took me so long to buy these gloves but voila no more awful looking arms! Back to having normal looking arms and it's fabulous!
Perfect gloves for working with heavy objects. I do a lot of lifting. Combine that with the fact that it drives me crazy to get dirt and crud on my hands. These have been awesome. They have good padding to protect from pinches and bangs etc. Not too bulky, very easy to grip items and can operate phone with them also.
Great groves at this price! Perfect fit for my hands and comfortable.And the quality looks good too, hope they last for long time
They're decent gloves. Moderately warm but if it's really cold with snow & rain they aren't the greatest. I bought them for work. I do construction flooring & when I have to clean up or organize tools & materials outside or around the shop they're nice to have. Keep my hands much more comfortable.
I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Most of the time, holding the handles of a trash bag is painful for me and the dumpster for our trash is down the street. (Rental.) So I bought these to protect my hands. I love them. They seem well made. I am a tall woman with a large bone structure. My hands are larger than a lot of women's. I bought the large and they fit me well. They also work fine on a touch screen if you need it for that.
