These leather beekeeping gloves feature ventilation just above the wrist, which is a lifesaver on a hot day in the apiary! Thick cowhide/goatskin leather protects against stings, yet is soft enough to provide good feeling when working through your hive. We get these gloves custom made and use them in our own apiary.
Gloves size is determined by measuring across the knuckles, not including the thumb (I.E. the widest point of the palm). You want your gloves to fit snugly as the leather will stretch slightly over time.
