if they fit you there good gloves and last well but getting wet leads to black hands from the dye. only squeaze my average size hands in after someone else has broken them in for a day or so.

Excellent Riggers Gloves
Not quite sure what a 'rigger' is but I bought these for hand protection doing general work in the garden after my previous pair (different make) fell apart at the seems after a long stint of duty.
These gloves have a leather face and fingers with the back and cuffs a thick cotton material. This gives good protection for dry work jobs with some flexibility in movement. But less protection for the back of hands and wrists than tougher all leather gloves.
The size is marked as 10, and is a good fit for my hands. Larger hands might find them a squeeze. They are a EN 388 Cat 2 glove. Abrasion resistance 2/4 Blade Cut resistance 1/5 Tear resistance 2/4 Puncture resistance 1/4.They are not suitable for handling chemicals.
The cuffs are not very long so arms would suffer if using for tough brambles etc. For these jobs I use a 'welders' glove which is tougher against thorns and longer to protect the lower arms.
The main advantage over 'gardening' gloves is the value; better performance than all but the best gardening gloves at a fraction of the price.
