These are some of the best lightweight work gloves we've ever come across. They're made from fine-grain goatskin, with a sturdy elastic band at the wrist and a relatively seamless construction to bring for more flexibility and comfort. Long story short, they'll protect your hands while you're working on whatever you need to get done, but are flexible enough for you to button your coat, tie your shoes, open a pocketknife, or use a camera without taking 'em off. And they'll last for years, obviously. They're Filson.
