3.0 out of 5 stars Wished they sold in small, August 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: G & F CUTShield Classic Kitchen Cut & Slash Resistant Gloves, Food Contact Safe, Grey, Size Medium (Tools & Home Improvement)
I just received these gloves today. Happy they came as a pair especially for the price. My only concern is they are a lil big. I read some women's reviews prior to purchasing saying they were too big and others saying they were tight. I still bought them because they were a good price and recommended by many for use with their mandoline. Most reviewers stated their body type/size in reference to their fit. But for those of you out there that want real measurements of the glove here they are...from very bottom of glove to tip of middle finger it measures 8.5" long. The actual finger length (again, middle finger) is 3.25" long. So there's a lil over a quarter inch of excess length at the tip of my middle finger after pulling the glove as far down as it goes. The pinky has the greatest dispartiy leaving a lil over 0.75" of excess length at the tip. The total finger length of the pinky is 2.75" long. I haven't tried them out with my mandoline yet but I'm sure it won't be too difficult using them. The fabric isn't too thick and they aren't bulky on my hand; just a lil too long. I tested their quality by attempting to cut with sharp scissors and they passed. I'm sure they won't resist professional and highest quality knives, etc. but they'll work just fine for me.

Thanks so much for providing the actual measurements! I'm a lady with "man-hands" LOL, so these look like they will work for me!

Middle finger will be perfect for me, pinky .5" too long. Shouldn't be a problem. Thanks so much for the actual measurements.

I found this comment for three different sizes, Medium, Large, and X-Large. I wish I knew WHICH size this reviewer was talking about...

Thank you very much for the detailed measurements - I probably would have wasted money and time ordering these. My palm circumference is slightly less than 8" which is just barely a medium on the various sizing charts, and I too had noticed other women's reviews saying that the gloves were tight, but I guess my fingers are even stubbier than I thought because these "medium" gloves would have had *dangerously* flapping fingertips.

Thank you for the measurements. I will definitely have to pass these up. The pinky and the middle finger are both an inch too long!
