For all of us ladies who like to get our hands dirty working outdoors, finding a well-fitted glove that can stand up to the tools, weeds, dirt, rocks, plants, or whatever else the outdoors may throw at us, is not as easy as finding a smaller men’s glove. Yes, there are many options out there for women, but one can spend a small fortune trying to find a glove that works as hard as we do.
The Digz high performance garden gloves offer a tailored solution. The Digz high performance gardening gloves come complete with an adjustable wrist strap, stretchy spandex to move and breath, palm and knuckle padding as well as synthetic leather palms for protection and comfort. These gloves are machine washable to keep them looking lovely, and the thumb and index finger can also be used on a touch screen. They are widely available from Amazon, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware for about $12 to $13.
I’ll be honest with you; I am very hard on gloves. I have used gloves on more than one occasion, that didn’t make it through the day. The stitching on the fingers has come unraveled, I have worn holes through the thumb and index finger, and I’ve even gotten blisters from gloves that rubbed me the wrong way.
I have been using Digz high performance gardening gloves for a few days and they have held up to every task thus far. I have used them to dig holes, pull weeds, and move rocks, wood, and gravel with a wheelbarrow.
The gloves fit very well. They run a little on the small side—I generally wear a small but found the medium to fit me well—so I would recommend ordering a size larger than normal. The spandex allows the glove to fit nicely and comfortably during all sorts of tasks. I never had to adjust the gloves during the time I was working. The breathable spandex also allowed my hands to stay cool and not get hot and sweaty while working.
The synthetic leather and padding on the palms worked well to protect my hands while working with tools (shovel and wheelbarrow), as well as protecting me from the rocks, wood, and prickly weeds I was moving. I had no tenderness or soreness—like the beginning of a blister or callous—in my hands after working either.
The thumb and index finger boast a touch screen compatible material that allows the user to access a phone or tablet while wearing them. I did attempt to use my iPhone with the gloves on (and clean) and it worked. I don’t foresee myself using this feature often as I don’t like the idea of touching my phone with dirty gloved hands while I am working. However, I was able to unlock my phone and get into various aps with the gloves on. I was not able to type very well, as the finger pads are larger than my fingers.
I would highly recommend the Digz high performance gardening gloves to any woman who likes to work outside. From light gardening to serious digging, these gloves have held up to every task I’ve thrown at them.
Also, as a side note, they come in uniquely feminine prints. I am a form over function type of woman, but the Digz high performance gardening gloves offer both a quality product that is able to perform well, and a pretty design that looks nice no matter what I am accomplishing.
