Unlike other brands, Tougher work gloves are sized specifically for women and use leather for long-term durability and protection.
Cut and sewn in Oregon, TOUGHER deerskin gloves are loved and used by women in skilled trades to those who garden. Sturdy, yet offering a supple feel and long-lasting fit and finish, each pair is tailored for women's hands.
Our gloves are made from high-grade deerskin leather sourced from Wisconsin and tanned in New York. Deerskin is significantly more abrasion-resistant and softer than cowhide, and can be washed in warm water without damaging the leather. Remember to always air dry.
Women deserve high quality gloves that last a lifetime and improve performance. When cheaply made leather gloves are purchased, they typically do not last a season. This costs a person more money over a lifetime.
Low-cost gloves become hard, brittle and tear because the grain of the leather used is the least strong and, therefore, cheapest for the manufacturer to buy. Additionally, cheap leather gloves are normally not tanned in a manner that ensures the the color is fully incorporated into the leather. This is why some of us have experienced yellow-dyed hands when wearing cheap leather gloves in wet conditions.
To find the proper size for Tougher gloves:
1. Measure the circumference of your dominant hand around the palm- excluding your thumb. Note the measurement in inches.
Example: the palm circumference below measures 7.5 inches.
2. Next, measure the length of your dominant hand from the base of your wrist to the tip of your middle finger. Note the measurement.
Example: the distance is 7 inches below from the wrist to tip of the middle finger.
3. Use the largest of the two measurements for ordering.
In the example above, 7.5 inches would be used since it is greater than 7 inches. Since 7.5 inches is a half size, it is recommended to round up and order a size 8 for gloves.
Reminder: For half-sizes, round up to the next whole number.
