Rated 5 out of 5 by RunGirl333 The best fireplace gloves!
I have a wood stove, and my old pair of LL Bean fireplace gloves finally wore out after years of use. I bought a cheap pair somewhere else, and I regretted it immediately -- I could feel intense heat through the thin material, and I never felt comfortable using them. So I immediately went back to LL Bean. You can't go wrong with these gloves!

Rated 2 out of 5 by SJBeanShopper Way too small for men!
I was so excited to find these gloves for my husband who has a bad habit of moving fire logs with his bare hands. LL Bean always has reliable, high quality products. I read the reviews that insisted there is enough room in the regular size but there really isn't. They are very snug. I brought them back for the larger size only to find out that the next size up is just longer ("tall"). They fit my hands but not someone who is 6 feet tall. The quality is nice and I love the color but we have to look somewhere else for these gloves.
Don't believe the reviews -- try these on in person. The price is too high not to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoFrillsCustomer Great gloves, US-made!!! Get them!
I love these so much, I want to buy extras in case they ever go away! We got these for kitchen use--- cast iron cooking, pan seasoning, grilling, and general baking. Typical kitchen mitts did not keep our hands safe---esp with cast iron and even glass bakeware. They are better insulated than some decent welding gloves we tried before finding these. They have held up great over the last year or so of frequent use. There's about an inch left in the finger on my hand (average woman's gloves usually fit me), but I still have better dexterity and protection than with floppy&thin potholders and puffy but not well-insulated oven mitts. They fit my husband's hands just right (he's a big 6' guy.) They are suede outers, so if they are hanging by fireplaces, I can see how they may dry out at the seams unless given a little TLC every now and then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeamkMom Gift to our Campfire
We bought these to keep in our RV to stoke our campfires. These the best thing that happened to our fires. Makes it so easy to re-arrange the wood and keep that fire going. We went with the regular size pair, feeling for our purpose the XL was a little cumbersome. We plan to buy these for all our camping-family for Christmas. These are well worth price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tucson8 Great Gloves
These are excellent. I use them instead of pot holders when taking things from my oven. I used to get burns on my wrists and arms, but these are long enough to cover the exposed areas of my arm. I also can grab the oven racks, to pull them out, even when the oven is set at 475 degrees. Worth the money.

These gloves are really great. This is the third pair I have bought and every pair has been amazing. The first two went to our two fireplaces and the most recent to my in-laws for their fireplace Each pair has performed beautifully and they even look nice on the hook near the fireplace. I completely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigMikeMN Great for BIG PAWS
I'm reviewing the long fireplace gloves. In short, and as most others relate, they are excellent. The gloves are well-made, prevent burns even when grabbing a burning log, and I very much like the extended arm guard for my stove.
I've got /very/ big paws and was worried the one size fits all would be too small (usually is). But I'm delighted to report these gloves fit very well. Clearly they are loose on smaller hands, which would be fine.
Highly recommend, even if you've got big hands!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OBXlady Excellent protection
I purchased these gloves for the third time in 28 years. That should be enough said right there. However, my hands are fully protected from the direct heat of the fireplace, especially if I have to adjust a log when the poker is not enough. I highly recommend these gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newbellbean LOVE THE LONG LENGTH
I only not just love the length of these but because of they are so long it helps to keep out any of the wood pieces out or any ashes that may fly around so my finger nails stay cleaner. They protect the clothing so much more when I have a really hot fire going in the woodstove. Just cant say enough about how great these are. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jdplante "Way better than I thought they were going to be."
Yes, that's what my husband finally said tonight after using these gloves for the past month since Christmas. He was a bit skeptical about their utility, but I encouraged him to try them because I was tired of watching him make dicey moves with his hands and/or the fire tongs for the past four winters. Today he grabbed a log right out of the fire to maneuver it and not only was his hand completely protected, but no mark was left on the glove! He has mentioned to me at least three different times in the past four weeks how happy he is with this gift that he never thought he would use. Thanks, L.L.Bean, for making an exceptional and functional product.
