I ordered these gloves for my husband because he has "gorilla hands". Most all of the stores only carry up to extra large and I was delighted when I found 2 x gloves here. When he opened them on Christmas he could barely get his hand inside and they were in fact smaller then any of the extra large gloves we found in the stores. He could at least get his hands inside the extra large at the store. We checked all of the labels and tags to make sure they were in fact 2xl and the tags said they were. So bear this in mind if you are going to order these particular gloves.
I wore these gloves once in the ice and snow. For starters, they are very warm on a 20 degree day in the snow. However, they are poorly designed. For instance, there is an inside fleece-like lining that is not removable, but it does turn inside out for washing. Once turned inside out, the lining is impossible to properly get back into the fingers of the gloves. So you would never be able to dry or clean these gloves inside. I decided to cut the lining out, and just use the outside as a shell. However, there is a plastic bag (yes!) stitched to the inside of these gloves, I suppose to keep the water out. But, as you all know, if you put your hand in a plastic bag, it promotes sweat and moisture on the inside. I had to throw these out after on use. Do not waste your money, buy a better brand known for outdoor use.
Husband has been a Scout Master for over 30 years. He often does winter hikes. To help him stay warm, he got his Christmas gift early when he went on a recent hike with his Scouts. He was happy to have such nice warm gloves.
- How accurate was the sizing? close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. OK
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I think so
They appear to be well made, but the sizing is so far off that I couldn't get my hands started into these gloves. I ordered size 2XL, and can get my hands into a XL normally. If you are looking to get these, I recommend you allow 2 sizes. I had to return them and was charged to do so! Which really upset me!!! I will not be buying this kind of thing here ever again, and will begin looking elsewhere in general.
Had to return the first pair because they were too big - but once I received the smaller pair in record time, my hands were nice and dry cleaning off my car during this brutal winter. The velcro strap is great too for adjusting and since they run big, you can put another pair of gloves for extra warmth underneath.
