I ordered this pair of uber nice goatskin gauntlet from ebay, made by North star. I am so excited, I can't wait till this weekend to get started with pruning.

Nice! I love mine! Seems like the thorns just aim higher sometimes:)

I hope they work really great for you!

I can't wear gloves. I don't have much sense of touch in my hands any more and the gloves just make that worse. They make me very clumsy and inept and I'm afraid I'd cut off a finger not notice, lol!

Susan, OUCH!!!
The gloves are made of goatskin,the gauntlet is from cowhide. Hopefully, I won't suffer much this weekend!

I pruned about 15 roses this weekend without a single scratch on me, why oh why did I wait so long to get a pair of these?!!
The gloves are so soft, not stiff like the ones I get from costco.

Ms jam, glad they worked so well for you. I am like Seil, afraid I will lop off a finger. Always start out with gloves......never make it very far.
