West Chester Grain Pigskin Leather Drivers Gloves - Large
great leather gloves
I,m used to going through a couple dozen pair of leather gloves a year. These are by far the best for the money both in comfort and quality.Now that I am retired it makes it easier on the wallet.

When purchasing these gloves I must have missed the "Driver's" description. So, I have used them for everything except driving unless using them on my motorcycle counts. I use them for lawn work, for cutting wood, pretty much everything except driving and they are holding up very well. I would much rather buy several pairs of these gloves than one of those designer appearing gloves that cost five times as much. These are work gloves both in looks and durability.....

bought them twice
Had one set and wore them out with a fall of chainsawing. Bought another set. That says enough

OK for the price
I ordered 2 pairs of these gloves to use doing general yard work and moving/stacking firewood. They're comfortable and fit well and they appear to be made from quality leather. However, on 1 pair the stitching on one of the fingers started to come un-done after only a short time. The other pair seems ok and even the slightly "defective" glove is still usable. Overall they seem to be reasonably well made for the price.

I muscle around a lot of firewood, and these things are FAR outlasting the cowhide gloves I used to get. Plus, pigskin is much more forgiving of getting wet. (Sometimes you have no choice but to work in the rain!) It doesn't get NEARLY as stiff as cowhide. And it doesn't seem to shrink, either. Just let them dry and you are ready to go the next day.
These are FAR better than any big-name cowhide gloves. I don't intend to go back, now that I've discovered pigskin.
Oh, and the fact that they are less than half the price of the local farm store's cowhide gloves doesn't hurt any!
Northern, don't ever drop these from your line!

Good glove, great price.
For the price, I don't see how you can go wrong. These are sure holding up better than cowhide gloves I've tried from the local farm store or Big Box. I'm in the country, with all the work that goes with heating with wood and taking care of some property, and the cowhide stuff just doesn't last. These are working out much better, and cost less! Very comfortable, and don't mind getting wet as much as cowhide does.
There may be better gloves out there for hard work, but they'd probably be 4 or 5 times the price.
