5.0 out of 5 stars The best gardening gloves, 22 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Showa Floreo 370 Lightweight Gardening Gloves Colour: Green, Size: Medium (Garden & Outdoors)
I discovered these a few months ago and they are wonderful!

They are lightweight and close fitting so, unlike most gardening gloves, they don't compromise your sense of touch too much, so are perfect for fiddly jobs and for handling delicate plants, while still giving you the protection of gloves. If you are the kind of gardener who prefers not to wear gloves but likes the protection they offer then these are the perfect solution.

They are waterproof on the fingers and palms so great for most jobs, though you would need something tougher for a job like pruning thorny plants.

They wash very well - I either pop them in with my normal washing (rinse first if very muddy) or sometimes just rinse them under the tap at the end of the day and they are normally dry by the next morning.

Because they have the huge advantage of being thin and very comfortable there are a few inevitable downsides: I have knicked the fingers a couple of times with secateurs (though that's mainly down to my clumsiness); if you're working in the mud or rain your hands can get wet and dirty through the fabric on the backs; they will probably not be very warm in the colder weather though I am going to experiment with wearing disposable gloves underneath or possibly buying a larger size of these so I can wear 2 pairs together.

Mine have been well worn and probably washed at least 10 times and (apart from the secateur knicks) they are still in excellent condition with plenty of wear left, so I'd say they are great value for money too.

Definitely highly recommended.
