By experience, these are by far the best gloves available. Comfort and safety are just two of the reasons I recommend these gloves. I use these gloves exclusively when using chain saws or doing fencing.
The Kevlar lining makes these gloves heat and puncture resistant. They are also good when working with chain saws to cushion against the vibration and adds additional safety.
Price wise these cannot be beat and it is not cheap leather. In all the times I have worked with barbed wire I have never been stuck while wearing these gloves.
