These are good for those times when getting your hands banged up is a real possibility. They protect your backs of the fingers and hands from those impacts that happen when working around machinery and equipment. They fit well and are warm.
I work outside here in Minnesota and got these just in time for some pretty cold weather. They are very warm, water repellent and durable so far. I wish they weren't so Robo cop looking but the guards do help with wear and tear. Glad I bought them.
