I've used them for the past year. The're getting a bit worn now but I like then and will replace them when they are worn out. I wear them maybe five evenings a week, so done quite well.

I can load my rifle with them on, even load an air rifle .22 mag. Even though they are not very warm in colder evenings, you are able to do most things (shooting wise) in them that most gloves would make it hard to do. They dry very quickly and grip is good wet or dry.

I bought the shorter ones by mistake and will definitely get the longer ones next time. No bad points really

Just to add, I had a good look at them while laying in a field waiting for Mr fox last night and they are not as worn as I thought they were, just a few bobbles on them. Nice gloves and I hope I can find some more for £19.99 when I need them.

It helps finding cheap gloves when you have hands like shovels they are usualy the sizes that are left along with the hobbit sizes :grin:

I think I will get some, my hand is 9.5cm wide just below the four fingers so should I get a 10 :hmm: . I've been meaning to get some like this just for handling/cleaning/oiling the guns with to keep the damn corrosive skin juice off the metal work :kill: .

Just get some latex ones for that mate they are for shooting in not cleaning the gun in
Mine came today and it doesn't feel like you have gloves on looking forward to shooting in them

Nitrile gloves and much better than latex. They are more chemical and tear resistant. I use them in 4 mil or 6 mil thickness all the time. Latex also tends to get attacked by organic solvents and discolor (fail) easier. I also use the nitrile gloves for reloading when I'm sizing the cases. They keep the case lube away from my skin.
The faster I go, the older I get.

Got mine coming, black set.

Trouble is I would end up going through millions of disposable ones in no time, I wont get these covered in oil and solvents I will just use them for general handling and use.
