I am a truck driver and handle heavy cardboard cases. These gloves worked well gripping the cases without slipping, but wore out and developed holes after 1st week of use. The rubber material separated from the glove and peeled off!! Then the fabric developed holes!! Not a good work glove!!!
Never had a pair of gloves that has incredible grip, its a thick silicon type feel to them, very comfortable, easy to work with chain saws, hedge trimmer, changing chains on saw, all are easy to do with gloves on. I did notice that some of the silicon is "beat up" after a day of logging, so I am hoping that they remain intact for at least 1/3 of the season.
I like the product. It wears well; however, it doesn't last long. I haven't used them more than a month and they are already showing wear. I use them daily for work but I need a glove with more durability.

Deteriorated very quickly. Not even close to the quality that I have come to expect from Carhartt, by far.
These gloves worked great... for the first day or two of use. After using them to handle standard cardboard boxes (indoors, in an air-conditioned building) they quickly deteriorated to the point of un-usability. The boxes I was moving were sealed packages with no sharp edges whatsoever, and there were no abrasive factors like heat, chemicals, liquids, sand, or even excessive dust present. I was simply restacking the boxes onto pallets, and I don't use any tools, touch the wood pallets or even wrap them afterwards as part of my job. I just stack the boxes neatly from a large stack into smaller stacks and move on. First, the grip coating quickly started coming off. Then the gloves started smelling really bad from normal sweat. Additionally, the gloves started getting holes all the way through in some spots. I thought it was a bad pair, and since I bought 8 pairs to last me until spring I started using the next pair, with the same outcome. I went through all 8 pairs in a matter of about two weeks. I normally keep gloves for at least a few weeks if they're cheap throw-aways, and a month or longer for better ones. At this price these gloves definitely did not live up to my expectations. They are not anywhere near the long-lasting, quality products I have come to expect from Carhartt. I have been wearing Carhartt products for over 15 years and have never had this kind of poor experience.

This is the best fitting glove I have found. Kansas winters can be brutal when working outside. This glove provides excellent gripping ability and warmth. Only had them a week but use them daily when working outside on vehicles and they are holding up great. Will definitely purchase again.
