They were a bit stiff when I first got them, but they've broken in nicely after a few uses, and now they're my favorite go-to for hand protection. The fit was a bit tight at first, but after they broke in, they're super-comfortable and fit quite well.
I've seen a few reviews of people who are using them for welding, but I get the feeling these are a bit lightweight for that purpose - I use pretty heavy-duty leather gloves when I weld. If you plan to use these for basic fabrication, I'd definitely recommend them. Anything heavier than that, and you're probably going to run into issues.
UPDATE: These are *still* the most comfortable gloves I own, and they've saved my hands too many times to count. Even after being subjected to run-ins with heavy-duty grinder belts and a blowtorch or two, they still look decent and just keep going. I'll be buying another pair when these wear out.
*_ not the traditional thick leather and nomex very thin for welding ect
*_ if your cutting and seriously welding and possably going to drip or splatter molten meatle on your hand this glove dosent look adaquit it is thin material thin enought you could easly poy nuts on bolts while not looking or evin use the buttons on a phone but thin enough if you grab a hot peice of steele your gonna feel it very quickly and probably burn your hand. id say 1/16 inch leather and id say millers gloves and others are 1/8 twice as thick at least.
*_ seriously scary thin for welding... i was going to send mine back pissed but then i put it on and felt how easy it was to maneuver my fingers. i was sold. but im a light welder and im not going to need to muve a hot peice of steel but most welding gloves are like oven mits you cant do anything else with them on you constantly have to put your gear down and do one thing that is imopsable with those gloves then put them back on and get to work.
*_ the wrist is short but ajustable so while your worried about a "spark" flying into the neck of the glove you can tighten it up pretty snug and it dosent seem likely.
&*_ i would suggest you buy some nomex sleeves to protect your arme if your welding or cutting.
