Good Quality gardening Gloves
« on: July 02, 2022, 13:37 »
Which gloves would folk here recommend for a decent pair of gardening gloves.

Would be used for general gardening work, including pruning of blackberries, which have very big thorns.

I had a cheapie pair before and the thorns still got me  :(

Hubby is wearing some called Gold Leaf tough touch. Yellow with black wrist covers. He is cutting back brambles and swears by them.
I seen to remember they are not cheap but he thinks they are worth it.

You probably want professional-grade gloves from suppliers like this one https://www.forestry-suppliers.com/product_pages/products.php?mi=34992&itemnum=90974.  I imagine you have a similar company in the UK?

The link goes to some gloves that are goatskin and Kevlar-lined. I would hope that will stop thorns!  :lol:

Not gardening gloves exactly but I swear by these:

They're very comfortable and very durable.

I always look for a leather palm and across the knuckles, as a minimum.  Town and Country do some adequate ones.

For blackberries and large nettles, I have a pair of leather gauntlet gloves.

I also have a pair of thinsulate lined gloves for winter work.

Gold Leaf gloves are indeed lovely  :)

Hello I  use welding gauntlets for pulling  brambles and Rose's  some times I use chainsaw gloves if I'm using a pruning saw as they have saw protection in the left hand   jezza

After assessing the garden gloves I have, I'll give a different answer. I'll take whatever pair I will  _NOT_  be losing the LEFT glove from!  :wacko:

In my glove box I have a bunch of right-hand gloves, with no corresponding left glove.  Time to pitch some of the extras.   :)

I was using my brand new pair, (above) when I was dismantling and sawing up a load of pallets, and now they're safely hidden somewhere underneath a huge pile of splintery pallet wood...

Town and Country master gardener are the ones I use. They last quite well for the usual gardening stuff but wouldn't use them with anything prickly.

Although I have a pair or two of "tougher" gloves of higher quality, most often I use the cheapest work gloves possible!

Why?
- Frequently lost (this seems to happen more as I get older; I'm blaming it on the gloves).

- Frequently "borrowed" by another family member (also blaming this on the gloves, although really embarrassing or ugly gloves seem to hang around longer).

- Gloves, no matter how good or bad, always seem to have one glove that gets damage beyond repair, or lost, before the other one.  There is always an imbalance of right and left gloves. I have many right-hand gloves that are either missing a left-hand companion, or the leftie has holes in it, seams splitting, or two fingers that are super-glued together.

I've got a plastic bag hanging in the shed with all sorts of the gloves you describe, SubP!

There's even a pair of insulated skiing gloves which Mrs Growster used when she had a Yamaha scooter for going to work back in the eighties...

I don't need 'posh' gloves for work any more so the industrial gardening gloves do a fabulous job - when I can find them...
