I love my gloves so much I ordered 5 pairs for gifts!! I don't think I used my garden spade one time last spring and summer. I was always spending so much time looking for my spade! After a full 3 months use, my 'claw' fingers came off, but a with a little glue, they were like new!! I have long fingernails and I'm always wearing holes in any gloves I buy (always my right hand). Not a problem any longer!
