There's your run-of-the-mill hardware store special gloves with a thumb longer than your middle finger and internal seams that cause more blisters than they prevent, and then there's the Red Wing Heritage Buckskin Leather Gloves. These buckskin gloves are made in America with a level of skill and craftsmanship not commonly found today. The gloves feature a Key Stone thumb assembly for a natural fit and excellent dexterity, while a thin layer of Thinsulate insulation offers just enough warmth for fall fence repairs and cold winter jobs.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used these gloves all Winter. They have seen wood chopping sessions, ski tour tracks, and the windshield of my truck. The gloves are very comfortable and soft. The leather has gotten softer with use and I am already planning to treat the leather soon. Minimal cracking has appeared on the fingertips but nothing that is of concern.

Feels good, meh quality

Great looking, great fitting, great working, but the leather cracked on the first use. Went on a 4hr motorcycle ride on my first day of receiving them and when I got home I noticed the leather had started to open on the fingers. Always thought of Red Wing of being better quality than that. Worried on how far that open will go in the near future.
