The gloves are well-constructed, and they feel as comfortable as work gloves, but because they're leather gloves, they're a little warmer than work gloves. The gloves also look industrial, and they're comfortable to wear. The gloves' palm is padded, and they feature extra padding on the thumb and index finger, and they're reinforced at multiple high wear points. The gloves feature thin knit cotton top hand liners, which increase heat resistance, improve comfort, and extend the life of the gloves. The gloves' unlined bottom hand maximizes dexterity.
