Aside from specialised military or police equipment these are the best shooting gloves i have found. They grip well with no loss of feeling on the trigger or loading 12 bore cartridges. Do not expect these gloves to keep your fingers warm they are not made for that. They fit well and dry out nicely but i would suggest buying a half size too small and let them stretch to your fingers. They are well made and grip well with no loss of confidence when weapons handling. A very good buy, well worth the money.
I washed a pair of brown gloves in a 30 degree wash because they were covered in mud in this weather. I checked your instructions on washing before embarking on this. Out of the machine came green gloves that had shrunk. The pair of thin but warm gloves I bought from Tesco for £2 last year were a great deal better value and are still in good condition despite a lot of wear. The MacWet gloves are now unwearable after one outing which is unacceptable for such expensive items.
Whilst out shooting I have tried leather gloves ( like cardboard when cold and like cardboard waste when wet). These are great gloves in the wet and sensitive enough to allow you to get cartridges of a non ejector gun. Whether you get a long or short wrist is entirely a matter of personal taste and where you wear your watch. My son wears the short ones so they don't clash with his friendship/charity bracelets whilst I prefer the ones that cover my wrist for the extra protection on cold or wet days. They are sufficiently hard wearing to be used game shooting (although I would risk them for beating) These are the winter ones although they can be used quite happily in autumn and spring- there are ones made of thinner material for the height summer (if we ever get such a thing in the UK) if you wear gloves all year round. It is worth getting some time getting your size right. If the gloves are too big they move around a lot especially when wet and I imagine can be uncomfortable if too tight .
