First I ordered the medium, and I love the gloves except that there is a skinny elastic strap on the inside across the back of the hand that cut into my hand. Otherwise the sizing was perfect. So I sent them back and got the larges. The larges were way too big. So I sent the large ones back and ordered the mediums again. This time, I simply took my seam ripper and ripped out the stitching holding the skinny elastic that cuts into my hand, and then sewed back up the seam openings on the sides where the elastic had been.
Except for that elastic, I would have given these gloves five stars for the value and the quality and the comfort and the fit.
Edit: these gloves, despite the suede like neoprene palms, are not even the slightest bit water resistant, and the palms get and stay soggy in damp soil. Downgrading by one star, although thankfully they dry quickly-ish in direct sun.
Second edit, after a year:
Downgraded another star because, in addition to easily getting soggy with handling any damp material, these gloves allow all fine dust through them as well. I wear work gloves to, among other things, keep my fingers from getting filthy while doing yard work. These are useful to prevent blisters but almost nothing else.
*** Important note: The size apparently runs small. I usually wear a medium; these are a large, and are slightly tight.
I'm VERY happy with my purchase. These are really rugged and well made, but are still very comfortable and not too hot (I live in Texas), even for summer work. They'll be warm enough for cold weather work, too.
I usually wear a Size 7 in gloves & decided to go with Medium. Although they fit fine & I'm happy, I've found that as I've used my hands over the summer, I've actually enlarged my palms and fingers slightly through my hard work (more muscle). When I order again, I'll try a large, simply because the finger length could be ever so slightly longer to fit my hands absolutely perfectly.
The fingertips are reinforced & each thumb has a soft microfiber backing for wiping your brow when you get super hot. I have some holly shrubs that "bite" & these are the first gloves I've owned that allow me to handle cut holly "fear free."
You can adjust the tightness of the wrist easily with sewn-in velcro strips that are easy to work, even with a gloved hand. The palms are nicely padded to relieve friction, which is a great help to me when I'm using a hedge trimmer (I have large manual shears and a cordless hedgetrimmer that both give my hands a real workout).
In my opinion, these gloves are well worth their extra initial cost; they're very well made & look like they'll last for several seasons (plus they can be washed as needed!!!). Highly recommended; one of my all-time favorite "gardening" tools.
They've definitely saved my hands from callouses and blisters & I LOVE the color--Hubby will NEVER borrow these by mistake : ).
