Thanks MMP. I'll have another look. Yes, I have small hands. In the days when you could buy gloves by size, way before your time, I needed a 6, which shops rarely stocked. Like you, it's the lower part of my arm that needs protecting but I can't bear anything that doesn't fit snug.
Will check the Notcutts on line, but don't recall ever seeing that name here.
Hope you get to use them this weekend. Bloody weather.
