West Chester Leather-Reinforced Work Gloves - Large, Gauntlet Cuff
Work Gloves, Large
We use this glove in some of the worst oily conditions on the drill rig and in the shop. They hold up well and take a lot of abuse. The pricing is great so that when they're done, just throw away. The only draw back that we've had is the liner of the cuff sometimes will breakdown before the glove does.

Item # 170111 used to be a good, heavy duty glove - I especially liked the long "gauntlet" cuff, which, though cotton, was thick and sturdy. Now the leather's tissue-thin and wears through in an hour or two, and the cuffs are so flimsy that they actually flop over onto your hand. This can only be considered a "work glove" if your work is, I dunno, changing babies' diapers - maybe not even good for that, because the slightest moisture and these turn into greazy rags......

Cheap is the word
Fortunately these cost relatively little as they really do not hold up. The cuffs pulled off the first pair on the second day of work and I ripped the cuffs off the other pair as soon as I started using them because they were rough enough to cause irritation on my wrists. The gloves work well without the cuffs which is good because they were inexpensive enough that it would be more hassle to try and send them back than to just live with them the way they are.

Large leather reinforced work gloves
I bought these gloves because I was looking for some gloves that were substantial enough to protect my hands and wrists from working in a large poison ivey patch. The long cuffs on the gloves were especially welcome.

Bring back the old gloves
I have been using the 4"cuffed gloves from Northern for many years with success. After this last shipment, I won't be ordering them again. I could tell when I lifted the box they were shipped in, something was different. The box felt really light. The old ones were made by Wel-Bilt and stood up to the heavy use I put them through. I use them to load stone and firewood mostly. The new ones which are made by West Chester fall apart after one day. They might be o.k. for light duty work, but now I have 72 pair to suffer through. I will be on the lookout for a new glove. The only plus is the price.

I have been ordering these gloves from you for a long time. The price is right and can order in large quantities. The last order of 2 dz. are very poorly made and don't last but one day in use. I know I do rough work but think they should last longer than one day! The lining comes out and they just don't last. Am real disappointed in this last batch I ordered.

Good for Ants (hay, ditches, clearing fences, etc)
If you are working around ants - especially fire ants - the long cuffs give you a couple of extra seconds. They also take a lot of the cactus, sand burs, bull nettles, poison ivy, barbed wire, battery acid, and other surprises we find in Texas. My fingers usually wear out first or the palms get so stiff with diesel or chemicals, I have to change out.
They're plenty tough - a pair lasts me about 3 months - and last as long as the $20 ones I tried ONCE. They need bigger sizes, but I can get along with these - because of the long cuffs they fit me better than the XL size.

Gloves that stand real work!
I am an engineer on old time full size steam locomotives. These gloves have to stand up to grease, dirt, cold, heat, steam and very hot temperatures. For the price of these gloves you can't go wrong. I have bought these from Northern Tool for years and they get used very hard in rough conditions and stand up very well to the test. I would recommend these to anyone who wanted to get the most for their money!
