Not for heavy use
These gloves had promise, looked and felt great. Once put to the test here in Texas they only lasted a few hours. Seriously were worthless after a little over 2 hours of work. I used them in leveling some ground and putting up a small block wall. Several fingers seams were broken through and worn through the material on the thumb. Maybe I was expecting too much, but they did not last as long as the cheaper version you can get at the big box store.

Very Durable-- These LAST
Super high quality and rugged glove. I used to go for the Mechanix all the time, but the cloth on those don't last long, especially around the fingers if you get anywhere near a gritty surface like dirt. I have another pair of Youngstown carpenter gloves (which are fingerless on the index finger and thumb) that have lasted for YEARS and are nowhere near wearing out. I would warn that the Mechanix gloves are much more comfortable than these, as the cloth on the Youngstown is stiffer... but that should be expected. I'd recommend these for 90% of real work uses, and maybe have a pair of Mechanix gloves for non-rugged use where comfort is more of a factor.

I only ever get one season out of any glove I buy. If they make it spring - fall without the fingers falling apart I give them a thumbs up. The finger pads on these unstitched on a couple fingers around the end of September, which is a little earlier than I would like. They were constructed well, so I was still able to use them with minimal issues. They were very comfortable, and fit my hands well.
I would be tempted to buy them again, but I likely would not because they just didn't hold up quite as well as I would like. But I am extremely tough on work gloves.
A little side note: I've seen comments on these gloves that state that the gloves changed style from when people purchased them to when they went back to leave comments on them. Maybe the style changed from a previous year to a new year, but if it's not the same product then BTA-MALL shouldn't be lumping all the reviews together. This may be why some of the reviews say the gloves are great, and some say they fall apart quickly. Perhaps BTA-MALL should sort this out.

Not recommended for use anywhere outside of a home garage.
These gloves are terrible. I do construction and a wk of just unloading a truck an the stitching started to unravel. 2 wks later the cheap plastic around the finger tips began peeling away and the pinky finger stitching was lost so now that finger is partially exposed and gets dirty first. You get about a month out of them before the material gives up on you.

High quality, comfortable, durable gloves
I recently picked these gloves up because the weather up here in New Hampshire is getting cold fast. I work outside monitoring construction sites & I really needed something that would keep my hands warm but still allow me to handle small tools, write, but not fall apart after using my hands to rip apart wall or toss around some concrete.
I realize these won't keep my hands toasty warm, but that's not what I expected. I need that mid-layer type of glove just like this. These gloves aren't for snowmobiling mind you - but cleaning off the car and quick tasks in the cold are fine.
The grips are in just the right spots to keep the wear and tear from my job from destorying these in three months. I actually love the fact they have a portion of the glove specifically for wiping sweat. You don't want tough, rigid grips scraping across your forehead.
All in all, best work glove I've found. I'm picking up two more pairs to store in my truck & to use at home.

Great Gloves, Hands Down.
These are the best gloves I've worn. They're comfortable, dextrous, and really stand up to the abuse I've given them. Looks like they've raised their prices a bit and redesigned them from when I first wrote this review, but if they still function like they did before, then they're still worth it.
The hard synthetic-leather patches never feel like they limit my handle on things, but keep both the gloves and my hands from getting splinters or other shards stuck in them.
I love the little terry-cloth bit on the back of the thumb (where I don't get much wear anyway) perfect for wiping dust and grime off my face. It's the little things.
They're hard to find in the local hardware stores nowadays. Not sure why, I love these things. Granted, if you're going to mostly be doing auto-work, you probably want to look at the Mechanix line of gloves, which are suited specifically for that use (and you can't argue with Nascar pit crews). But for tougher jobs, wood, masonry, whatever, these are great.
Hands-down, a great pair of gloves.

These things are the best
Simply a great work glove. I've had mine for over a year, and just got my father a pair as a gift. A saw tooth or rosebush thorn will not puncture these so they protect your hands. They are comfortable and light-weight. Leather material on the front of the hand and an extremely breathable, flexible, stretchable fabric on the back of the hand. Couldn't imagine it getting any better than this.
My wife was doing some work in the garden recently with thorns so I told her to use my gloves. I told her they were best-in-class or something like that, and she laughed at me. As SOON as she put them on, she said, "oh my gosh, these ARE great gloves".

Bought to help with field work. Wanted something with grip, and a bit of protection and insulation, while maintaining dexterity. The gloves are not very insulated, but the added layering keeps my hands warmer than they would be without, especially when in contact with cold items in the field. The grip is very rough and will allow you to grab most anything with a degree of confidence. They are close to finger tip, so I can type on the laptop without too much trouble.

My husband and myself are both tree climbers. We need gloves that can live up to the toughest work conditions out there. No matter what we are doing from climbing trees to running chainsaws or moving dibrees. We have found that these gloves hold up to the harshest work conditions better than many others that we have used and we have put alot of them through tough tests day in and day out. If you are looking for some work gloves that are as tough as your job is. Youngstown is about the best there is. I would recomend them to anyone that needs long lasting work gloves that last. Definantly worth the money.

The only utility glove I buy
These gloves are awesome. The fit and dexterity is perfect. As a fireman I use these at work for non firefighting tasks and they get wet but dry quickly and the fit is just as good wet or dry. I have been using this glove at work since 2006, while I have gone through a few pairs (4) due to the abuse they get they are better than any utility glove advertised for fire service use.
