These gloves have some real benefits and some real drawbacks. What I like about them is that they have really nice impact resistant padding on the palm, interior of fingers, and most importantly, the knuckles! These pads seem very durable and aren't just a leather patch like you see on other work gloves but actually seem to be some sort of neoprene impact material with a solid 1/8th inch cushion. They seem to articulate nicely, and you can perform fine movements like tying a knot or picking up a washer quite easily.What I don't love about the gloves is that they run a little tight from standard sizes, and the touch screen function is pretty limited. They work to open your phone and check your texts, but anything beyond opening a screen you'll have to take them off for.Overall, they seem like a solid pair of work gloves and I'm happy with my purchase!EDIT:After using these for a week or so I have reduced my rating to 3 stars because these gloves have absolutely no grip whatsoever. While I can still grab things and carry them okay with only slightly more slipping, anything that requires you to pull yourself up, like climbing into an attic, is next to impossible as the soft padding just slips against any smooth surface. This further limits what activities these gloves are good for, so I have to drop it to 3 stars.
