Feeling soft and always durable
I would buy then again.
Haven't put them to use yet. I lost 1 of 2 pairs in the pasture, so will be trying them out when I lose the reg pair.
They're a bit stiff but I use them to break down brambles and not mutilate my hands. Order a size up because they are a bit small, but very heavy duty!
I can't honestly knock these down to 3 stars, because they are indeed so ruggedly made. And the disappointing fit is something that has always been an issue for me. If only I could get these gloves with the palms of a size large and the finger length of a small. I have mediums which feel too tight my hand (they recommend a tight fit and letting the gloves form to the hand, but these mediums are very tight), but the fingers are quite long, especially the pinky. It's disappointing how badly this impairs the dexterity. The only solution for my short finger problem would be to pay through the nose to some specialty, handmade glove company where you'd send a tracing of your hand or something like that. Oh well. Hands are different. I expect for many people, these Bear Knuckles would be 7 stars out of 5.
