Gold Leaf Gloves are another find from the UK, it seemed like everyone was talking about them last time I was there. A couple of years ago I bought the Dry Touch gloves for myself and my crew to trial, and they were a hit.
Last year, we tried the Winter Touch gloves for the added thinsulate thermal lining and rao-tex waterproofing - they kept our hands warm and toasty, even on the coldest, rainiest winter days. And that, I believe, is a West Coast gardener's biggest challenge on the worst winter days.
They are meant to fit snugly in order to provide a high level of dexterity, and the leather is extremely soft and pliable.
Reinforced palm, thumb and fingers means that this model is particularly durable when using tools for planting, wheelbarrowing, raking, and pruning.
