Howdy, anyone have any suggestions as to good pair of gloves that would be
resistant to thorns/thickets etc.???
I'll be clearing some heavily overgrown areas in my yard with a gas powered
trimmer that I hope to rent.
Yeah...the leather or pigskin ones, or whatever they're made of. They're
sort of a dark orange color. The color will come off on your hands for a
couple of weeks, but after that, they're fine. Some thorns will still get
through, especially if you have to grab certain plants really hard. Long BBQ
tongs can be useful in avoiding that.
Home Depot had some really great gloves - they have a very long cuff
(comes up to your elbow). I bought 2 pair as I like them so much. The
glove part is leather and the 'cuff' part is a very stiff canvas. They
were in a special display in the garden center as opposed to their glove
I agree with the BBQ tongs for any really vicious thorns.
About 200 degrees here in Atlanta!!! I do most of my cleanup work in the
spring or fall, though.
I like the long gloves for pruning the holly trees and bushes. And if I
have to go after poison ivy, these long gloves are perfect, even at 200
