the most comfortable, form fitting, functional gardening glove I have ever worn and I HATE to wear gloves when I garden because they never fit to me right which makes them clumsy and as far as I am concerned, not worth the effort, I'd rather work bare handed than wear a glove that only complicates things. BUT...these are a magical find and now I not only wear them, I'm spreading the word to all I work with to try them! I love, love, love them! The quality is superb and has even held up to 6 weeks of laying hundreds of 35# limestone stone slabs in a conservation area garden. Those stones are sharp and irregular and I never once lost my grip while moving them and they held up to all of the movement of the stones and the back filling of the excavated dirt to shore them up without so much as a nick, tear, or any sign of wear. And best of all, they are back sides are breathable, so my hands don't sweat AND they are machine washable! What more could you want!? I bought 2 pair so I'd have a replacement pair when the time came but they are constructed so well, I've no clue when that will be! Ha Ha!
