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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomOnTheHomestead No burns! Best woodstove accessory ever.
I did a few evenings' worth of research before purchasing the accessories for our new woodstove last fall. I knew I needed gloves because I'm a klutz and trying to adjust burning logs with tongs is a recipe for disaster.
My husband, who believes he has asbestos fingers, has learned his lesson about sticking his bare hands into the fire to add logs or use the poker - he really appreciates these gloves as well.
These gloves are Awesome. We've been using them daily since late October, and it's now mid-January. I can reach into the stove and add logs, or move burning ones around #I try not to do that too often#, and never even feel warmth, let alone heat. They're a little unwieldy - I can't pick up dimes off the floor with them on - but they're just fine for working with logs and kindling.
They don't show any damage from the fire, either. I brush off the ash, and they look brand new.
I don't generally wax rhapsodic about products, but if you're looking for fireplace gloves, these are the ones to get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fireproof AWESOME
These are the best gloves ever. My husband has used them for the past six years and one just ripped now. It is not because of the quality that these gloves ripped because my husband uses them all of the time. They are awesome gloves and we wore them through and so we just ordered another pair. I know LL Bean would have replaced the first pair but I feel we got more than our money's worth. We loved them so much we just bought our second pair and I'm sure we will get another six years or more! My husband can even stick his arms in the wood stove and he doesn't feel anything. I highly recommend these gloves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by damonarae Christmas gift for husband.
He was frequently getting burned when working in the fireplace. Now he is amazed he can actually move hot logs within the fireplace without getting burned. The surrounding screen on our fireplace actually got very hot after a few hours of having a fire. He is now able to move it with no problem. Best Christmas gift I got him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobeThief Perfect fit
I got these for my son who's Labrador ate his last set of fire gloves. They fit him perfect. I wasn't sure which length to get and decided on the shorter pair. He loved them. Thank You.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kristen108 EXCELLENT ! WELL MADE!
I bought another pair of these gloves for my husband 4 years ago. He uses them every day in the winter and occasionally in the summer for the campfires. To this day they are still in excellent working condition and protect him from harmful flames..
I bought this pair for my father when he puts logs in his fireplace.
I highly recommend them to anyone~
