The gloves are warm and durable. They are fairly water resistant. I live in Oregon and work with zoo animals. We had a severe ice storm recently requiring a great deal of tree limb cleanup. One on the gloves were warm and were doing the job I expected. However, once you take off the gloves the liner folds in on itself making it very difficult to put the gloves back on. I needed several minutes to work each finger back into the glove. Not practical! I really expected Carhartt to sell a quality product where the liner is attached to the walls of each finger.
I would recommend another glove and buying a separate glove warmer.
I am hoping I can return these now that I used them once.
What kind of material is on the palm? I need something durable that can handle rigging. Is it pig or goat skin? Carhartt use to make a waterproof, insulated pigskin palm glove. Not sure if this is the same one or not. Thanks.
