Ultimate protection for hands and arms are provided with these Cowhide Gloves. The stiff ventilating screen will keep you cooler while the cotton upper sleeves protect your upper arms. A double thickness of cowhide in the palms of the gloves will outlast any other leather glove available. Our Cowhide gloves are sting resistant not sting proof.
After only 8 months, the Elastic Bands around the sleeve of the gloves gave out. Now I have to have someone around to tape the sleeves up where they should be if there was elastic to hold them there. Cant find receipt for return but even if I could, shipping cost would make this mute.

Not Feeling It
I was excited to purchase these gloves due to heavy duty look and potential ventilation. However, when I received them the finger slots fit okay, but the thumb slot was soooo baggy, I cant see how one can handle a frame confidently and yes I ordered the right size for me and rest of glove fit fine. I did not feel like I would have good tactile sensation when working a hive. I also didnt like the ventilation screen: too stiff and can see, like previous reviewer, how one could get strung through it. I returned them and ended up purchasing Goat Skin gloves from Mann Lake--previously owned a pair--and they truly fit like a glove.

Not the best idea
The gloves are nice but if the ventilated mesh presses up against your skin, you are able to get stung through it. Or so that is my experience. I ended up putting duct tape around the mesh to prevent it from happening again.
I was afraid that the feel wouldnt be there with these gloves, but I bought a pair anyway and am glad I did. If you get the right size for your hand feel is not a problem and they are definitly sting proof. I would recommend these gloves without reservation to anyone who doesnt like getting stung in the fingers.
