Showa 451 Thermal Grip Gloves Blue X Large
Bought these gloves to use when laying turf on a frosty morning. Kept my hands warm and had good grip on the muddy turf.

durable, comfortable, warm
I've only only used these gloves for one day but have scored 5 for reliability because I had them on for 8 hours using the titan pole cutter, a chainsaw and a shredder (4 hours of shredding) and at the end of a busy day the only signs of wear were the stains from the bark and leaves.
It wasn't a cold day but the gloves felt really warm and 'cosy'. They have excellent grip (great for opening black bin bags!) and are tactile enough to feel what you are doing.
I am glad I bought these, my more expensive leather gloves and other gardening gloves stayed on the shelf - probably only to be worn in the future if I needed better thorn protection

IT IS WORTH THE EXTRA CASH FOR THESE GLOVES. MORE WATERPROOF THAN MOST SIMILAR GLOVES, MORE DURABLE THAN ANY OTHERS I'VE USED AND WARMER IN WINTER FOR HANDLING WET WOOD AROUND A SAWMILL. THICKER THAN ANY OTHERS TOO, BUT YOU CAN STILL FEEL SMALL OBJECTS ETC. GREAT GLOVES FOR SERIOUS WORK!
