The gloves that I received were not those pictured. Only a small portion of the glove was leather, the rest of the glove was a black crochet-like mesh, especially the portion covering the backside of your hand (knuckles, etc). They are going back.
I have given these gloves to construction workers, Harley Guys & Gals, a few friends in wheel chairs, and my husband loves to use it with his power tools and even driving. It really protects the hands but allows for a great deal of dexterity.
