Handle hot items around and directly off a very hot grill with Charcoal Companion's Pit Mitt, an aramid fiber glove with soft blended cotton lining. Reversible for left or right hand, the Pit Mitt has a silicone-textured surface for superior grip.
The glove's aramid fibers are the same as used in spacesuits and firefighter gear. The fit of this glove allows for more pronounced usage around and on the grill surface. You can easily pick up and handle small skewers or handles that might be difficult to do with other grill gloves. And the glove extends past the wrist for more protection of the hand and lower arm, which makes it great for dumping a chimney full of blazing hot coals, or replacing a screaming hot grill grate. Wear this glove on either the right or left hand and rest assured that you've got a great, heat resistant grip with the textured silicone pattern on the glove's exterior.
Able to fit most size hands, the Pit Mitt is heat safe up to 475 degrees F. Hand wash only, and air dry.

While you can get pretty much the same amount of thermal protection from cheapo oven mitts, having articulated thumbs and fingers might just make the expense of these worth it to you, but only marginally. The form factor does have advantages over oven mitts, for the same reason that most people prefer gloves over mittens in cold weather: dexterity. While oven mitts can be a little on the clumsy side, these do allow your hands and fingers to work as they are meant to, and that can come in handy, ie when using grill tools like tongs.
The gloves are very large in appearance, but not so much that the size gets in the way when working. In spite of their large appearance, the fit inside is extremely snug on an average size man's hand. You actually have to work to get them on all the way.
Bottom line: I think they're a little overhyped in most of the reviews here, and a little overpriced based purely on the thermal protection they provide. I'm sure the glove design explains some of the price, but the protection doesn't justify it in my opinion. You might wanna consider them for use as winter gloves though, I think they'd be great for that!
I hope some of you find my review helpful in making a more well informed purchasing decision! Peace to all reading :-)
Also, these are not oven mits, so do not expose them to direct heat for prolonged periods of time. They are meant for those short moments when you are grilling and need to get close to the heat source, for which, they do a decent, but not perfect job; which is the reason for the 4 star rating, they do get hot quick and so I have to remove my hand from the heat and let them cool.
As for their physical aspect, they are well stitched and have lasted over a year. I even left them outside for a couple of months, and they still held together.
This aren't perfect, but do a decent job.
