These inexpensive gloves are some of the toughest longest wearing gloves I have ever owned. I have bought these many times before and I will many more times. I don't think I have ever really worn a pair of these out before I lost them, so the two dollar price is far more than welcome. The gloves have a comfortable elastic wrist and very strongly reinforced knuckle and fingers right where its needed. I highly reccomend these Tuff Stuff Gloves for anyone that wants to save their hands from a lot of abuse. The leather surfaces are allin just the right spots it seems for grabing and pulling other wise dangerous hand snagging items. I especially like these for weeding the thorns and various prickly plants are no match fo the Stanley HandIHelpers. The gloves fit well enough to stay in place well but have enough free motion to remain comfortable through an entire day of use. They are not water proof but they do have a certain water resistance, I wouldn't suggest submerging hem for long periods of time, but damp use is certainly an option. I have recommended these to many of my friends and even bought a few as gifts for the ones that didn't believe how good the inexpensive Stanley HandHelpers really are. I will continue to use them probably for as long as they continue to make them.
