Soft, but heavy 4-5oz American elk leather. Elk skin has a beautiful grain finish and requires very little maintenance. Superior abrasion resistance to deer skin and tolerates moisture very well. A fantastic all around work and chore glove, perfect for working on the fire line handcrew. All leathers come from natural hides which may contain scarring, giving each pair its own character.
Measure around your palm... If you don't have a soft tape measure.. use a string, mark it, lay it flat and measure it. This will give you your general size. If you like more or less room you could go up or down from there.
