Not chain-mail, but woven steel wool
on 15 September 2015
I thought that this was a chain-mail type glove - it isn't.
It comes with 2 gloves. An inner cotton, liner glove and an outer 'metallic' glove. I thought, when I purchased this that the outer glove was metal. Like hard, chain-mail, heavy; metal. However, it's a light, flexible, woven steel wool looking 'fabric'. I'm not really sure how much protection that this will offer from a meat cleaver.
Once you put the liner and outer gloves on it's a snug fit for medium size hands. The adjustable wristband clicks into pop studs and away you go. Just be aware that the outer is a woven steel fabric, not quite what I was expecting from the picture.
On the pro side: It's much lighter than chain mail. On the Con side: I would have thought a proper chain mail glove would offer more protection from hacking. This is probably just for scratch and stab protection. For this type of glove there are much cheaper alternative on Amazon. They may not come with a cotton liner but these cut resistant glove are readily available cheaper. I only got this thinking it was tougher than the others. So, maybe shop around.
It comes in it's own bag with a zip lock and a Chinese sticker. Quite good all in all.
