This is our best value glove and offers great protection. The palms have a double layer, which adds to the ruggedness of this glove. The gauntlets are made from tightly woven cotton, are finished off with elastic and fall below the elbow for a comfortable fit. The plastic on the glove is a light coating, which makes them sting resistant, yet cool. Check out our chart to determine the size you will need: Glove Chart
The gloves came with my Garden Hive kit, so I really cant complain too much, however, if a bee sits on your glove too long, you will get stung: not a full-on sting, but just enough where you feel it. Im going to purchase some heavier gloves.
