Just need a xxxl size, otherwise nice gloves.
Not much shrinkage after heavy use and they keep the heat out very well. I love these gloves and I don't think I'm going to be trying any other for a long time. Much more dexterity with the relief cuts in the side. I haven't had any bb's burn through or sit in the relief spots that made them uncomfortable. If you're thinking about it buy them they'll last what you need them to.
They are a good fit but the fingers have already burned holes in them.
I'm sorry that the gloves have burned holes in them. The leather we use is very durable cowhide, 1.5mm thick which is above standard for welding. Because leather is a natural and non-manufactured item there isn't anything we can do to improve heat resistance on the leather itself, and it sounds like any pair of leather gloves would have holes as well under those conditions.
They appeared well designed and easy to wear. Not bad dexterity. Laid my hand across a piece of hot metal and branded the back of the glove and did not even feel it, much appreciated.
Great reviews led me to try these and I'm glad I did. After swapping out for an XL I was super satisfied with the overall fit and quality. The big difference was the decreased heat flow from the weld. Comfy and cool with an ample cuff.
