FORMIDABLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS
How do I find my glove size?
We make gloves in 24 sizes, because you can’t afford to drop that wrench. When you get your size right, our gloves actually fit like a glove.
Following the technique in the video below, make a loose fist, and measure the circumference around the top of your knuckles. The number of inches around your knuckles is your glove size.
How should I take care of my gloves?
Dry them low and slow - avoid drying gloves under or near direct heat sources as it can dry out the leather, pulling out the natural oils present in goat leather (which keep it supple & dexterous). Every now and then - after a long, wet day in the woods; or every few weeks - condition your gloves in order to replenish the natural oils in the leather. You can use your conditioner of choice, or if you’re in a bind, just stick your hand in a beehive or use some hydraulic fluid.
What type of leather do you use?
At Vermont Glove, we have used goat leather for durability, dexterity, and weatherization since the beginning. Goat leather has the durability of cowhide, is supple and soft like deerskin, and will dry soft and malleable once wet. That means you don’t have to sit on them the whole car ride to actually use them.
Where does your leather come from?
We source our leather from within the United States. We do not publish our suppliers from various regions of the country because our process and relationships are proprietary.
