Rated 1 out of 5 by MaryCGallagher Way too small, be warned!
I ordered men's EXTRA LARGE and they are tight to the point of discomfort. I double-checked the tag in each glove and they state Men's XL. Tight gloves certainly don't keep hands warm, as they don't allow air space around the fingers or palms. I am a 5'2" woman with normal sized hands. It's crazy that Men's XL are tight on my hands!
Having said that, I will agree that the gloves are well made, just way, WAY too small! I can't imagine a normal-sized man even being able to get these gloves on.
I am going to return them and order Men's XXL. Maybe they will fit better. Who knows?

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlanInNY Not so good
The gloves I ordered in a large size and I do have to admit they are tight. Today was the first time I actually wore them outside in 25 degree weather to snowblow my driveway. I'd estimate I was outside maybe a half hour snowblowing and my hands were getting cold. I did measure my hands as suggested by LL Bean and I had ordered the correct size. Buy the next size up if you order them. I also do admit the gloves have a real nice feel to them and are well built...just not for cold weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gayprof1 Nice sturdy gloves, but run a bit small
Got these gloves for yard work. Purchased an XL - fits, but probably should have gotten an XXL. Seem very sturdy, but good flexibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate334 Excellant Gloves
I have purchased this set of gloves for my husband a number of times. He works in construction and is out in the elements all year round. He is hard on all his work gear and nothing lasts long with him. These gloves have stood up for him for a number of years. They not only keep his hands warm but have allowed him to be able to grab items that he works with, without having to take the gloves off.
Other gloves he has tried did not allow this, he would have to take them off each time he needed to grab a tool or other item. This is not good when it 20 degrees out and you have another 5 hours to go. I highly recommend this set of gloves!

Rated 3 out of 5 by WoodchuckEngineer Gloves are tight, yet bulky
I typically wear a medium to large glove; given the other reviews, I erred on the side of caution and ordered the large. When I tried them on, I could feel the circulation being restricted to my otherwise smaller than average fingers. Any yet, the gloves felt like there was a lot of extra material surrounding them making them less function than the typical insulated mechanic style gloves I was hoping for. Maybe they will break in over time and become more functional, but right now I would strongly recommend trying them before buying to check fit, or go with an insulated mechanics glove. Other than the fit, and bulkiness, I like the gloves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ConstructionJunkie Need bigger sizes!
For starters, I have bulky hands with large palms and thick, normal length fingers. My reach from pinky to thumb is a little over 9", and my palm circumference is 10". I don't consider my hands to be huge, but my main complaint with any gloves is I can never find a pair large enough to be comfortable.
I bought the size XL (dark brown) in our local Tyson's Corner store, as that was the largest they had in stock. I thought they would be fine, but after a day of work I could tell they were to restrictive for my hands, and the fingers felt too tapered almost like I expect a ladies' glove would be. They were warm and otherwise seemed to be well made.
I exchanged these for a size 2XL online in the tan color which was again the largest glove available. The fingers are no longer tapered but are still slightly restrictive. The palms fit well but the glove cuts into the web of my index finger and thumb when the thumb is extended.
The fingers are the right length in both the XL and the 2XL. For this reason, I expect that a size 3XL, if it were made, would be a perfect fit for me and anyone else with similar hand size/shape. I know there are plenty of people with hands my size or larger, so I don't understand why Bean and other companies won't make gloves to accommodate us. I will keep these, as they are now my most comfortable work gloves, but I'm holding back from a 5-star rating because the glove won't fit (we must acquit!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarletonBob Very nice gloves
They are nice warm gloves, well made. One word of caution, they are smaller than expected. I ordered the XXL and they are snug.
