  1. Amazon Karl S

    Okay, first time using Ironclad gloves. This is for warehouse receiving, truck unloading, merchandise sorting, handling nasty sprintered wood pallets and all sorts of chinese made crap. In the past I’ve used Mechanix and Husky from Home Depot. Husky gloves are not designed to handle this type of work. Mechanix fit well, and seem to last a reasonable amount of time.Decided to try Ironclad because reviews state they outlast Mechanix. Wore these gloves for the first time last night. First impression… very stiff and possibly too tight. Could barely pick up a pencil and hold it properly to write on a manifest.Also- Some sort of sharp seam, inside near the base of the index finger where multiple pieces of material come together. Noticed it in both gloves and was not pleased.Decided to give these a chance, break them in and see how they felt.I’m happy to report after 4 hours of truck unload, they gloves had already started to “break in” and feel really comfortable. After 8 hours I could handle a pencil much better and the sharp seams and stiff leather were supple and not an issue.I should state, these gloves appear to be well made. Lot’s of reinforced leather or synthetic leather at key contact points on the palms and fingers. Certain amount of knuckle protection (TPC) and breathable material on the backs of the fingers. These appear to be serious work gloves.I will update this review as the weeks go by , I’m hoping to get a few good months out of these.

    Bought these so that we could easily handle firewood and basically any fallen tree limbs on our property (we live in the woods) and they have been a life saver! Fit perfectly and comfortably. They seem very sturdy and I’ve yet to have any issues with them (bought 2 pairs, one for me and one for my bf).

    The media could not be loaded.  These only have one issue, but I have this problem with just about every glove out there, but if you have hands that have shorter fingers but long thumbs, I recommend maybe getting a size smaller than the chart. I size exactly at the beginning of the Medium range, but my thumbs are long, so gloves rather fit perfect in the fingers but not enough space for the thumb and the webbing bwtween it and the index finger. OR Vice Versa. With these, I would have gotten one size down, from the Medium/8, which usually are okay, but the fingers push up while bending them, due to the material. NOW! THE GOOD! First off, these gloves actually hold up pretty well. The material that makes them abrasion resistance does make them a little uncomfortable at first, especially when closing your hand or making a fist. I got these mainly for when I craft metal. So that’s sharp and pointy objects, and the use of a bench grinder. I was able to easily bend metal wires or rods that would normally hurt to bend with a bare hand, or need to clamp with a tool to assist in gripping the object. The tears and damage in the video are due to hitting the Grinding wheel while while working, which I tend to do alot. And grabbing pieces that were hot due to friction. Even tho they got ‘grinded’ and burned, they still are holding together very well and aren’t de-threading or anything. So these gloves will last a good amount of time with moderate to heavy use.

    They’re comfortable and great but sadly won’t work for what I need them for. I need gloves that won’t break with constant friction in the same spot. I’m a jeweler and when I polish I hurt my hands so I’m shopping around for something that’ll help protect my fingers, they sadly didn’t work. After 1 day they broke. But I do believe they’re great gloves

  5. GNO

    For years I used Wells-Lamont leather work gloves and, got a new pair every spring. This year I decided I wanted something cooler and that breathed a little better than leather gloves. I was a little concerned about sizing but, based on the hand measurement/sizing guidance provided I ordered an XL and they fit great. When I first put them on, I wasn’t so sure I was going to like them – didn’t feel like the leather gloves I was used to but, after the first hour or so of working in them they feel great. I’ve spent the last 4 days pruning trees, dragging brush, and other landscaping work and am super happy with these gloves.They seem like they will be durable and I really like the idea that I can throw them in the wash with my work cloths and clean them up. Looking forward to seeing how much cooler they are to wear in the summer heat.

    These are now my favorite gloves and I’ll be buying more when they finally wear out… Which they haven’t started to do yet! We stacked and bundled about ten cord of firewood last season, and I bought these about halfway through when my other “name brand” rugged gloves got holes worn through the fingers. Firewood wears out gloves fast! However, these lasted through the season and look like I haven’t worn them yet!I use them every day putting wood into our own outdoor wood boiler as well.Only negative: They are not insulated, so in winter, my hands get cold fast.Positives: Durability through the roof! Also, I have small hands and it’s really hard to get WORKING gloves that are both rugged and fit me well. You don’t want long fingers when you’re tying up bundles of firewood. These fit great and they have some features I love: The backs breathe, so you don’t sweat, they have adjustable wrists to prevent them from slipping off, and they went so far as to reinforce the front of the wrist where you grab them to pull them on. There’s a small plastic ridge there so you can easily grab the cuff to pull one on even when the other glove is already on. Great design!Update April 2020: After a LOT of wood stacking, firewood bundling for our store, and moving logs and large rocks, these are only now wearing out. I’ve lost a couple of the pads on the front and the stitching thread is now catching my fingers when I put them on. Still, these have been the best-wearing gloves I have ever owned. I’m still using them for pulling wire fencing while we’re building a chicken run and for moving rocks and wood, but I would no longer be able to use them when pulling raspberry bushes, so I’m now ordering a second pair. Considering every other brand lasted me barely 6 months, these are incredible.

    These gloves are great. We are often handling cut wood or other materials that have jagged or sharp edges and it was important to have gloves that were comfortable, had durable seams and provided protection from all those sharp objects. Just don’t try to pick up anything like nails and such. Maybe they need more breaking in to be able to do that, but that’s been the only annoying thing about these gloves so far.

  8. Vairochana The Laughing Buddha

    I’m actually using those gloves as workout gloves and very happy giving them a shot. I was previously using workout gloves with the cut off fingers but the my fingers was getting gnawed by my adjustable dumbbells course handle. Well that’s not an issue anymore with those heavy duty gloves. Plus as some other reviewers pointed out they fit a bit snug but that’s actually prefect because I sure as hell don’t want 100 lb and heavier dumbbells slipping out my hands. Also those gloves are very sturdy so I don’t see them wearing out anytime soon. I wish I brought those gloves first instead of those fingerless workout gloves that I now trashed. Oh well live and learn right!!!!!
