Goatskin gloves have the softest leather and give you the best feel of any of the leather gloves we sell. The overall length is shorter then our ventilated cowhide gloves coming to mid forearm. Strong elastic seals off the ends of the gloves keeping the bees out while holding them in place. The stiff gauntlet immediately behind the gloves is a double thickness of cotton to insure you the best protection. Goatskin gloves are sting resistant, not sting proof.
Good sense of feel. Comfortable. Adequate to prevent most stings PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THEM THICKER. Length is much more convenient than the over the elbow gloves which in my opinion are overkill. They wear out a little faster than the thicker gloves but the better sense of feel makes this a good trade-off.

soft, great feel and workability, but...
I love these gloves except that the bees keep stinging me through the tops. They are soft and almost like not having gloves on at all. I really wish they where just a little thicker! Brushy Mountain has the best clothing in the industry and I will replace them with their cowskinned gloves at my next order!
