I guess when there's no manufacturers warranty that should tell you that the product isn't going to last. Others mentioned tears in the fingers, the pair my husband purchases split in the palm. They are only used for general maintenance around the house and yard but after a few small projects, these are toast.
I’ve used several varieties of the Firm Grip glove line. Everything from the three glove value pack (a very good deal) to the pricier rubberized surface ones. These appear to be their middle-of-the-line apply named General Purpose gloves for just under $10. Let’s start with the good. The materials and overall construction are good. Lots of double stitching where need and I like the Velcro wrist band which keeps the gloves on tight. But this is the second pair of these gloves which present a weakness. For some reason the middle, ring, and to a lesser extent pinky finger of the left hand glove rotate to the right. It causes the weak side material to land on the grip surface (pad) of my finger. This side material just doesn’t hold up and soon develops a tear. Next thing I know my finders are poking out of the glove. It doesn’t matter if I put on the glove and carefully line up the working surface to my fingers – within a minute the finder ends have rotated. And it’s only doing it to the left glove. I even asked a coworker to try them out and he found the same problem so it’s not something weird about my hand. Maybe some kind of misalignment in the machinery? Bottom line until they fix this problem I’m not buying any more of the General Purpose gloves.
Best gloves I've ever had for working around the house.

I wanted a good pair of gloves that were durable and fit good and that I could use for splitting wood, gardening and even for use when working on my vehicles as well as my Harleys. These gloves proved to be that. When they get dirty just put them in some dish washing detergent and wash them and hang'em to dry. I have now worn holes in the fingers and am about to go and get my second pair. Some people would hesitate to pay $10 for a pair of work gloves, but trust me if you do then you will go and get another pair if and when you wear out the first pair.
I wear the General Purpose large gloves every day at work. While at work my finger got pinched and thanks to the strength of the glove it saved my finger! Just stitches and some rehab- couldn't be happier with the product.
To me these gloves fit comfortably and work well.
Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

They are the best gloves I can find...and I have been an electrician for 20 yrs. I could NEVER find a glove that would allow you to actually use the tips of your fingers and thumb to complete small tasks. Your not gonna fix your dropped eye glass screw, but other than that, excellent! Wish I could find them in bulk to pay less than the 10 bucks.
Not a winter glove, and would not use them on stone work. Great value for those who would use them for what they are best for... parts manipulation with no interference. excellent glove to work on equipment. you will not want to get them oily and ruin them...you'll miss them!!!!!!
Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
I bought these gloves after purchasing a different brand that only lasted about two days and then ripped. These gloves are comfortable and durable. I used them for general construction around the house.
