When should I wear leather work gloves?

The joy of leather

When it comes to hard work, leather has long been the glove of choice for workers of every description. Leather gloves can stand up to a tough job by providing cushioning from blows, protection from rough objects, sparks and heat. Leather gloves can be found in cowhide, split cowhide, and goat leather. All provide comfort, durability, dexterity, mild heat resistance and abrasion protection. Most gloves now-a-day's are made overseas and imported into the United States.
