The goatskin gloves from Oregon Glove Company are fantastic gloves for any kind of yard work. At $50, they aren’t cheap. But they are well made, very durable and comfortable. A little stiff at first, but they break in nicely. I have very big hands and my wife has petit hands, and the available sizes fit us both just fine. We’ve given a couple pairs as gifts, and the recipients have all commented how much they like them after using them.
