I ordered these gloves in the extra long and they were All that and huge; there is no way I could wear these and tend a fire; it would be like wearing a catcher's glove! so back they went, seemed to be well made, sturdy so if you have larger hands than I do; may be just right for you! I love LLBean, but have small hands, so rated them poor for that but overall very well made and sturdy. how about making a smaller size?

Rated 5 out of 5 by teacherm Fireplace Gloves wonderful!
I feel the gloves protect my hands and arms (ordered long) much better than any other gloves my husband and I purchased in the past. I feel the gloves will last many years because of the good quality and Thick Insuleather used. I recommend the gloves to anyone.

I bought a pair of less expensive fireplace gloves from a competing company but when they failed to protect my hands when pulling out the ash pan from our wood stove I decided to try the LLBean gloves. Will never buy another brand again. The LLBean gloves were of high quality and protected my hands. Would highly recommend!

I purchased these for a friend, and have owned a pair for 10 years. They are durable, and well worth the investment.

We have a small, vertical woodstove with front loading only. These gloves allow us to stick our hands in the stove to best place the pieces without fear of being burned. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snooj Fantastic for more than the fireplace
I've owned a pair of these gloves for many years living in Maine and heating with two stoves. The durable construction and thickness make them idea for loading up fireplaces and getting your hands right on top of the coals without any discomfort from the heat. Make sure to get the long cuffs, it's worth the extra dollars.
Beyond the fireplace, these are excellent for tending bonfires for anyone who does outdoor burning. You can literally pick up a glowing red long and toss it back in the fire without even feeling the heat. These gloves have been indispensable not only for the long Maine winters but also for the enjoyment of many lazy summer afternoons burning and maintaining bonfires.
The pair I have gets frequent daily use during cold weather and at least bi-weekly use during the summer. After a half decade of this abuse they are starting to fray so I'm here to grab a replacement pair. I even dropped one right into roaring fire once and it took me several seconds to be able to fish it out. No noticeable damage occurred. Definitely a worthwhile investment, even my snowboarding gloves don't last that long!

Bought 3 pair of fireplace gloves for my 3 grandsons for Christmas. They were VERY pleased with their gift but I can't tell you how they worked as I do not know. However, I believe that if they didn't work well they would have let me know by now. All 3 heat their own homes with wood burning stoves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CinderP perfect addition to the hearth.
I was a bit concerned about adding wood to the new wood stove insert when it is hot, but with these gloves on I don't feel the heat from the coals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyconsumerfromCT Well made
My husband was very happy with the fireplace gloves. They are a very good quality and thick enough to protect his hands and forearms without any bulk. Extremely glad I purchased them for him. No more burned fingers and hands while tending to the fire. Great price also for the quality of workmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatintheHat14 Big Hit as a Gift
Got these gloves as a gift for my father in law, who loves building fires and BBQing. Fit his hands just fine and were very well made. Also came with a little tag that explained what they were and when to use them. Excellent!
