Hi Bettina, 
Ils n'existe pas....
 The closest you might get would be one of the leather and chain-mail gloves 
sold with power pruners, to avoid the worker cutting their other hands 
fingers off - used by apple pruners etc
I just use leather gloves, they get shredded, I get another pair. You need to 
balance protection against being able to use your hands.
PS taking a bill'ook out with you does help - or even better, a SE Asian 
parang or a cane cutter's machete (my dad and his dad both had a thing about 
knives & guns, and I inherited some useful blades for work...
The rest went to the police!)

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
