Thanks for the info and pics. May actually have to start looking at gloves differently given the pointers you gave. Hope some of those people complaining about gloves in other forums read your blog.

Hope it helps, Bev.

It sure is nice to have a place like this to share our observations, isn't it? Smiling

Yes, it is, Chelle. I consider it a form of giving... Smiling

Results after one (nearly) complete gardening season...

The two pair of holey gloves in the picture below were switched off half and half; when one pair was wet, I used the other. The single pair of Ethel gloves were worn at all other times, and they were also used exclusively to cut, load and place the wood from four very large trees.

I know which gloves I'll order again! Big Grin

Great review Chelle. I may have to get a pair of these gloves.

Chelle, I see they have several versions. Wonder what the differences are? http://www.mechanix.com/womens

I'd say that some of them might have different thicknesses/types of materials; the heavier would wear longer (probably), but you might lose varying degrees of flexibility and comfort with the heavy-duty styles.

I'm fairly certain that I chose these http://www.mechanix.com/womens/womens-padded-palm . Right after I placed an order online and received my gloves I found out Lowe's had them. Hilarious!
If you have one nearby you might try on several to see which ones you like best. Smiling
