Not just for welding - The 21" long 1878 gauntlets are fantastic. My wife and I built an adobe outdoor oven and she needed something that would protect her arms as she used the oven. Internal temperatures can reach upwards to 1500 degrees. These gloves allow us to work effectively moving the fire around inside the oven and the cooking pots as well with out discomfort. Thank you.

These are great gloves from the wrist down. Comfortable forearm padding and good insulation. I think the gauntlet cinch is only minimally effective. From the wrist forward, insulation and durability could be improved. The overlay leather is not thick enough on the back of the hand or the fingertips. The black base material is not durable and and abrades too easily. On my left hand glove, the pinky finger lining has jammed up into the end causing an odd deflection of the fingertip to the right.

Advantages: Cushioning and heat/spark protection of forearm.

Disadvantages: Durability of palm leather. Insufficient back of hand insulation.

Ordered these gloves a couple weeks back. I use them for mostly stick & MIG. I also use them for carbon arc, plasma cutting and OxyFuel cutting. I absolutely love these gloves. Comfortable and great finger movement, also since I started using them, haven't burned my forearms yet. I will be ordering another pair when the time comes.

Advantages: Finger/Hand movement increased. Picking up rods & gripping things. Heat Protection is amazing.

Like the welding gloves except, at the bend of the elbow, I will get sparks in the area. Going to try adding additional leather within that area up the bicep. During a recent job my outside arm was against hot metal and was completely protected from the heat. Typically weld with one glove but glad I purchased the pair, as with differing jobs I have utilized the pair.

Advantages: Heat resistant and quite comfortable.

Disadvantages: Get sparks within the elbow bend area.

I'm waiting until Christmas to give these gloves to my husband. He had shown them to me a few times online and said "that's what I'd like to have for Christmas!!" We have a family rule my mom started when she got married, you're not allowed to buy yourself anything "extra" unless you ask if it's ok, to make sure someone else hasn't gotten it for them. I know my hubby is gonna love them just because he welds a lot and not all the time w/his jacket. So he'll use these until they fall apart. I wish you could see his face when he brings not only these gloves up, but the entire company as well!

Advantages: Just from what he has told me about them and the things that I've read about them, the advantages are going to be peace of mind. Knowing that his arms are protected and that slag would have a hard time getting to him.

Disadvantages: I don't see any disadvantages, we live in central TX and it's almost always HOT, so my husband doesn't always wear his welding jacket, but he has told me that if he had these, he'd wear them until they fell apart lol.
Thanks or making a great product so I don't have to worry about my husband as much!
