Very Good glove, poor quality control

These gloves are replacing an older pair of similar BD's, think they wee the original patrol glove. I had to send the first pair back because of leather stitching all twisted up on right thump, 2nd pair was better but thumb stitching and leather is still a little twisted.
These fit my XL hands well, plenty of finger room, very warm from 10* and up and very plush inside, cuff pull cord works well, nice thick leather. Leather does soak some water up on wet days but the gloves remained bone dry inside.Big plus, inside does not come out when pulling wet sweaty hands out of glove like old ones. Only things that I dont like is the elastic/tightness around the wrist, it's pretty loose and makes it feel like the gloves will slide off too easily but it hasn't been a problem yet and the quality control among the gloves is poor. I tried on 3-4 pairs of these gloves and they all fit differently. Next time around I will most likely buy locally only so I could get the best fit. B/C return policy and cust. service is excellent though!
