Rated 5 out of 5 by mortarman The ONLY hearth gloves I'd ever use, or recommend
I received these for Christmas four years ago. I'd always tended the fireplace with heavy duty leather work gloves, and while it was certainly better than trying to do so without protection, it was still less than ideal and my hands still got **uncomfortably** hot many times. These gloves are so much better than any other glove I've used it's like the difference between a wheelbarrow and a Caterpillar front end loader: both tools can get the job done, but one is far, far superior!
- virtually zero heat seepage through the gloves, no matter how hot the fire/embers
- the glove construction allows you to manually handle - that is, without any tools - burning, ember encrusted logs
- with the gauntlet construction you never have to fear inadvertently burning your forearms on the fireplace/stove
In short, if you're looking for the last hearth gloves you'll ever need then buy these now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrMagoo2u Comfortable and great protection
Gloves arrived quickly, and have been put to good use. I can reach into the fireplace and turn over a blazing log with no problem.

Too many gloves are now labeled as fire place gloves or hearth gloves when really all you can do with them is bbq with them, you can't actually pick up a hot log with them or place logs into a burning fire in a wood stove safely with them like you can with these.
Yes they are bit large for my hand since I am woman, but I am still able to easily grip the wood and maneuver with these gloves on. I DO wish they would make a pair that was a smaller fit for women, however, these gloves do exactly what they are meant to do, so the sizing does not affect my rating.
No need for a clumsy log grabber, I can safely place fresh logs into my wood stove while it is burning a hot fire and even pick up the burning logs and shift them as needed or pick one up if it were to fall out as I open the door of the stove. A must have!

After receiving these as a gift I am giving my older fireplace gloves to Goodwill.
The new LL Bean gloves are perfect for the fireplace, arranging coals on the grill and the longer sleeve protects my arms when I reach into the pizza oven.

This is my fourth pair of these gloves. I use them every day 3-4 times from October through April, so they take a beating. They usually last me a couple of years. They are so comfortable right from the beginning - thick yet pliable. I have tried other gloves - none compare.

These gloves do the trick! Hands are very well protected from hot coals and fire. Looks good on hook too!

These are great. We have both the short & longer topped pairs. One for each fireplace. I prefer the shorter (regular) length cuff. Its sleeker & more comfortable, cheaper, too. I had a 20% off promotion & picked up an extra pair to have on hand for a gift. Excellent product!

I found the gloves awkward for a woman's smaller hands but adequate for the purpose.
The gloves are of a very heavy duty material so I anticipate being able to use them for years to com.

My wife and I bought a pair of these many moons ago for our home. Our daughter just moved into her own home with its own wood burning stove and the first thing "Dad" saw was a potential accident. So to L.L. Bean I went. These are great gloves. My own pair must be nearly 20 years old and are still fine. I have used them not only for my wood burning stove and my fireplace but out in my garden when I've had bonfires. They are that durable!

I can touch my fireplace without burning myself! The downside is I still don't know if my fireplace is hot or not. Everyone should wear a pair.
