Hi Bettina,

Hope all is good.

I guess it depends upon what you want to do once you've stuck your hand in 
the hedge. I've used tight motorcycle gloves over very loose-fitting welding 
gauntlets when doing a lot of foraging in hedges and if I had any dexterity I 
could count on one hand when anything got through.

However, there lies the problem, dexterity! Just about ok for picking litter 
but no much use for anything finer!

Cheers

Dave

Hello all,
hope you are well and keeping safe.

A general question for the collective mind -

What would you recommend as the best gauntlets to buy for dealing with 
brambles, hawthorn, blackthorn etc?

I have tried supposed hedging gauntlets, hawking gloves, professional 
gardening gauntlets and welders gauntlets - all are effective at keeping the 
thorns out, but only to a degree.

Can anyone recommend a sure-fire glove that does actually prevent you being 
punctured?

all the best
Regards
Bettina
