These superb British-made thorn resistant Leather Gauntlet gloves are a 'must have' item when working near brambles or nettles and are the 21st century equvialent of strapping on a suit of armour.
The leather gauntlets were highly recommended in both Garden Answers and Telegraph Gardening and it's hardly suprising; quality on this scale doesn't come along that often and when you consider the gardening gauntlets are hand made in Shropshire in a traditional tannery, it's clear they are a special purchase.
But these long armed leather gardening gloves don't just do tradition as thanks to the heavy duty yet incredibly supple leather and 20cm long gauntlet cuff, there's not much in the garden that can get the better of them - don the leather gauntlets and ride into battle!

- Literally as tough as old boots
My wife brought me these and to demonstrate her mistake I attacked our overgrown garden as if I had flesh made of steel - but she was right. Not a scratch on me. Amazing. Brambles as thick as my wrist, sword blade Pampas, pyrocanthus with dagger thorns, nettles, bamboo and 3 metre high roses, all cut, piled, hauled and thrust brutally into the recycle bin. These are great gauntlets, I pamper them with beeswax and treasure them.
I bought a pair of these a while ago and was so impressed with them that I've now bought a pair for my mother. The sleeve on them is tough enough that you feel confident to attack even the most prickly and thorny of bushes. The glove is a bit softer and will allow thorns to poke through if you're unlucky, but generally this hasn't been a problem - it's the arms which will benefit enormously from these gauntlets.
What The Press Say
