Ripeur 2 Bettina.

Experienced the same as you over the years with welding gauntlets etc . 
Looked at specialist rescue gloves - found some many years ago at about 
£150.00 per glove , gave uplooking, then a few years back discovered Ripeur . 
Had two pairs for us for a few years now and have yet to have  a report of a 
thorn breaking through - about £25.00 -£30.00 with postage , I suggest go 
bigger on size to increase movement. Type  'Safety Hut Ripeur ' online, don’t 
procrastinate on cost ,buy, don’t look back. Better hands, and more enjoyable 
work.


All best ,

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
