These gloves state that they are for carpentry work, however I use them for automotive work and they are fantastic. I like them better than my mechanic type glove, I have better grip and feel.
I purchased these gloves to use on a roofing job. Before the job was complete the gloves were torn and worn so thin my fingertips were showing through.
XL is a little tight, but better for holding onto things as you have better feel. velcro straps on the ends to secure gloves and a little padding on fingertips. has these nonslip plastic/rubber lines on palm side to aid gripping force
