I work with a group called the weed warriors pulling out weeds and wild rose and replanting with native plants. I'm in Northern NJ and it's cold out here now. These gloves keep me nice and warm and protect my hands from the rose thorns. Being female, I figured Mens small would be the right size. Mens small fits perfect, a little to perfect. I probably should have ordered Men's Medium. These are doing fine though. We'll see how they hold up through an entire winter and tons of wild roses. For the price, they are excellent.
