I use these highly affordable gloves for yardwork and gardening. Their price clocks in at a whopping $0.97. Pretty great price. They are made out of 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton.
They help keep my hands clean in dry conditions. They have a knit wrist to keep dirt out. They are very soft, which is nice and comfortable when pertaining to wearability. Though the material provides comfort, it turns out to be the downfall of this pair of gloves.
If I get my hands wet, the water comes right through them. When dealing with thorny branches, the thorns poke right through, as well. Next time around, I will be getting a more protective pair that is also waterproof. I bought these in a size large and they fit fine. I have small hands, though, so it might be good to get them in an extra-large if you have large hands. They seem to run small. For the price, you can't beat gloves for under a $1. Although, I think the gloves would be best used for non-wet and non-thorny activities.
