I want to love these gloves and I have not given up. They are made of soft, supple leather that allow terrific dexterity. Great wool-ish insulation. My only problem is the fit. I own many OR gloves and I fit most medium sizes perfectly, sometimes a large. These gloves in a medium fit as expected in the hand and four fingers, but the thumb is remarkably stubby; painfully so. I've been wetting, wearing, and leather-conditioning the heck out of them. The thumbs feel better day-by-day. I anticipate a great fitting work glove with dexterity in all fingers, soon. I would still recommend these, especially if you already own leather conditioner.
