These are the greatest gloves I've ever purchased. I am an avid fisherman and I have never been able to find a pair of gloves that were completely waterproof and comfortable to wear. I cannot stand wet hands! Well the sealskinz ultra grip black glove is the answer! I can honestly say that these gloves keep my hands totally dry. I find myself using them for general use around my house as well. Taking the dogs out in the rain, tossing their wet fetch toys and just working around the house in the rain. Absolutely outstanding product! Very happy with my purchase. Several family members have purchased a pair since seeing mine. My brother says they are fantastic when riding his motorcycle and encountering rain.
