Carhartt Gloves are made with the same attention to detail, premium materials, and quality construction as Carhartt's apparel. You can be sure that the glove you choose has been job-tested for durability.
Reviewer: OldBullDurham, Location: Buffalo, TX, Occupation: Retired Carhartt Quality - with Variables NOTE: Although listed as "Fencer", the packages said "Work Gloves," NOT Fencer. Ordered two pair of these gloves since I had just put holes in two of my current pair (other maker). Both pair were well made, but probably in different factories. One was stiffer and thicker, sufficiently so that I had to lather mink oil liberally on the gloves to soften them to the point the seams didn't hurt when holding something tightly (like a pick or hammer). However, this pair seems likely to last longer since its leather is thicker. The other pair also was well made, but its leather is softer and thinner. No preparation required. Overall, particularly compared to gloves costing $20 - $30 a pair, I recommend these. But be prepared for some variation in what you get.
Reviewer: WanaqueSteve, Location: Wanaque, NJ Nice I got these gloves for driving on cold mornings (truck gets cold). The leather is great, love the feel (and that smell). There's no lining, these are soft leather. The wrist strap is great. Only saying cause it's something I thought didn't matter and I'm digging it now. Got to believe they'd make a great lite-work glove. But these won't ever get the chance!
Reviewer: wmf3, Location: Chicagoland glove review Good quality gloves, just as described. However I was disappointed there was not even minimal lining.They ran large enough to, therefore, allow me to add thin knit glove insert.
Reviewer: brightboy, Location: Cape Cod, Occupation: golf course grounds keeper Soft & Tough These gloves are real quality leather and comfortably soft. Remember as a kid the smell and feel of your first baseball glove? You get the same fragrance when you open the package. I do groundwork at a golf course and have them on most of the time. I feel naked without them. Light enough for gardening and tough enough for tree work, handling sharp items, mowing, picking up dead branches or laying sod. And they're also great for driving. And not overly-priced, a fair deal - I bought three pair.
