What are the Clip Gloves General Purpose gloves like?

These gloves come in both male and female sizes and designs and have a synthetic leather palm, spandex back and reinforced fingers. An adjustable velcro wrist strap gives a snug fit but needs to be undone every time you take them off and put them on, which can be fiddly. They’re comfortable and breathable and don’t feel bulky or stiff and are tailored to fit. Grip is good but you can’t feel what you’re doing quite as well as with thinner gloves.
The gloves aren't insulated and are made from synthetic rather than real leather, so they’re not particularly warm but they're ideal for spring to autumn wear. They aren’t waterproof either but dry out quickly and don’t stiffen or change shape and they’re very comfortable in dry weather. As with all Clip Gloves, an aluminium carabiner clips onto a hook on the cuff of each glove so they can be easily attached to your belt hook or hung up in the shed. They come in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes.
