My experience with these gloves differs from many of the other reviewers. Sure, these do not offer the quality of a 20$ glove, but they are durable, reliable, and easily replaced. I have used a dozen pairs of these over the last two years. During this time I subjected them to a variety of different indoor and outdoor projects including demolition, yardwork, and other assorted heavy-duty maintenance tasks.
They perform well, especially considering the price point. I have never had any issues with the stitching or gloves tearing, and often replace them solely because they have outlived their usefulness and have become too dirty that there is no longer a hope of cleaning them.
I have used them to pull briars, nettles, and all manner of undesirable plants with great success. In fact, the only time I've ever been annoyed with these gloves was dealing with a row of shrubs that were covered in small narrow thorns. Alone, these gloves offered no protection. But after double layering them they worked reasonably well. Fortunately I've since destroyed those horrible shrubs, so they no longer plague me. Beyond that experience I've never had anything else unpleasant happen with this product and honestly, I don't think any glove on the market would have been able to contend with those horrid, horrid shrubs and their ridiculous spines.
