Initially designed these for official Fire Fighter certification and expensive for sure. (You can imagine what protection fireman's hands need.) They were offered to us re-engineered with the extra-special fire suppression lining removed. What remains is 100 leather - pliable and very comfortable.
When you slip these on, you simply feel safe. Heavily constructed, double-sewn palm reinforcement, generous finger and thumb spacing. And although not designed as cold-protection winter gloves, we suspect they will perform very well in this mode too. Highly recommended for tough, rough working situations. Terrific.
