Whilst Edd does most of the product descriptions - I'm taking over here... as I LOVE these gloves and I want to write upper case and use exclamation marks to prove it.
Why do I really rate these Watson Perfect 10 gloves? Becuase I seem to blow through the fingers of every other pair of gardening gloves I've ever owned - until now!
I've got relatively long finger nails (I'm lucky, they just grow - I do nothing to help them), and after time they always do damage to the ends of my gloves. This is especially the case with gardening gloves, where a fair amount on pressure is placed on the finger tips.
Watson Gloves have addressed this problem (surely it must be a common issue - it can't just be me, right??) with the Perfect 10, which features what they are calling NailGuard technology. In simple terms the finger tips of these gloves are multi-layer and reinforced. This is both to stop the ends being damaged but also to offer further protection to nails.
Fit: We've decided to stock the longer gauntlet style in these Watson's Perfect 10 gloves. The reason is this - if I want to wear light weight gloves, I use (and recommend) Watson's eco-friendly Karma gloves . Otherwise, I'd choose a gardening glove with a bit more coverage and protection - which this gauntlet style cuff does for when you're working with roses etc. (If you want full on heavy protection, you'd need to upgrade to the Game of Thorns gauntlet).
For sizing we recommend that you download a printable guide here. When printed this allows you to physically work out which size is best for you. If it helps, I think I have a fairly average hand size and I wear a medium sized pair of the Watson Perfect 10 and the Karma.
Colour: to be brutally honest, I wasn't keen on the purple colour when we brought them in to test (and this is the pair I still use). It was a little bit too close to pink and being 'for ladies' - but they have absolutely grown on me. Mainly becuase I don't lose them in the garden when I take them off. And they are easily spotted in the mess that is the potting bench. Which makes the colour a double win for me.
