It’s the little things that make a great product.
Why is that a big deal? Think about it. The knit cuff is there to keep dirt, snow and cold air from getting to your hands. Repeatedly pulling on the knit fabric leads to stretching and out of shape, less effective cuffs. That simple little tab keeps that from happening. Grab the tab when you pull on the gloves and you save the knit fabric, keeping the cuffs snug like they are supposed to.
The tab is not just sewn to the knit fabric either, It’s sewn to the leather cuff of the glove so it is sturdy and secure.
These are the simple kind of features that make for a quality product. Good for Give’r for doing it.
In case you are curious, I have the waxed version. I also used the recommended Oven Method for breaking the new gloves in. I heartily recommend it.
There are a number of helpful videos on the Give’r website. Check them out if you’re interested in learning more about their gloves and mitts.
As I write this I’ve had them for less than a week, worn them for a few chores and very happy with the way they are breaking in. As the weather here in the Valley keeps getting colder I know these gloves will be getting a work out.
UPDATE: NOV 29.: The gloves have broken in nicely. They are molding to my hands and continue to be warm and comfortable.
