I have been using HexArmor products for over 15 years. I still have my first pair of search gloves from working corrections. I have a second pair for corrections I retired with. I never needed to buy a third due to excellent quality for 40 hours a week use. I picked up the ThornArmor pair for woodcarving in my down time, love them, I and wanted a "sharing" pair for my adult children now interested in carving. After some site searching I decided on these PointGuard Ultra. I love that I can buy two left and one right in different sizes. I use them for holding pieces I am carving with micro small gouges under 1/8 inch. I love the whole front/back thumb and first finger added protection, you never know when the wood will fight back (corrections humor)...so be ready and safe. I know that complaining about high quality is not normal, but I didn't need to buy more gloves... I wish I had shopped here more often though, the company has come so far in their fabrics and construction. it's kind of like going from a brick cell phone to an 2021 cell phone. The dexterity and tactile feeling of the PointGuard Ultra gloves kinda feels like I'm a surgeon now (of woodcarvings). I really wish I had bought more products over the years on the innovation side, the quality side you just can't beat.
