The ideal gardening glove for when you need a bit of sensitivity and to feel what you're doing. The nylon/spandex liner is breathable, the nitrile coating is grippy but not too grippy, and the fit of the fingers and cuffs is just right. Perfect for pruning, planting, working in the borders, potting up in the greenhouse, and any other chores around the home and garden. Less good for ripping out brambles.

The cuff colours, and the funky Japanese kanji, are non-negotiable. Don't, for goodness sake, get the small ones because you like the purple, or the shape of  七. Get them because you're size 7.

Measure across the middle of your hand (at the metacarpophalangeal joints, obviously) in cm to find your size.  7cm = Size 7 (Small), 8cm = Size 8 (Medium) etc.) We recommend moving up a size if you're caught in the middle, although some people prefer a tighter fit. Not that it matters, but Jake favours a size 10.
