Carhartt is my go-to, so I bought these glove to replace my Kinco's for ski patrol. They are warm enough and durable enough, but the snow sticks to the synthetic "leather" and makes the gloves slippery rather than just getting damp like a pair of leather gloves. Carhartt is still my go-to and I have a pair of the heavier insulated, waterproof gloves for cold days on the mountain that I like.
Used them over the holidays for wood chopping, brush removal, taking down the lights and changing some tires. Very flexible and more dexterity than expected I guess due to the Thinsulate lining being so thin but very warm. Size large was spot on. Consider waterproofing them before using...Good solid suave that should last for years. Used them in 36-40 degrees and were still warm .
This is my 4th purchase of these gloves. I love them but they dont seem to hold up while I was installing concrete paves on my patio. See picture. On one glove the stitching failed in the palm area and on the other the material wore out having holes in the fingers.
I really like the glove, fit well and are comfortable to wear. I guess there was a weak spot in the cowhide or the sewing. After second day of working on firewood there is a big hole at the base of the thumb.
I really like these gloves but even at XX-Large the fingers are tight and restricting. I wish they were a bit roomier in the finger areas, could be a bit longer overall too. For most people they are probably ok, I just have large hands.
I just purchased my 10 or more pair of these gloves. That will tell you how much I like them. My only negative is that the finger tips wear out way faster than the main body of the glove. Guess I just use them too much!
I've always loved anything Carhartt. I had received a pair of gloves for a gift. They were the best gloves I had ever had. I used them outdoors, at a college in New York State. They were warm, and comfy. After at least five years of use, I noticed I was wearing a fingertip out. I found these gloves online at Carhart, and ordered them. They are soft, warm, and comfy. They run a little big, I could have ordered large. The X-Larges give me plenty of room. I like them I will definitely order again.
These gloves are durable for any outdoor work you have to do, and keep you warm as you go as well. My fingers no longer gradually get numb as the cold seeps in as I work. These gloves keep me safe and comfy all day!
