    I really like the tig gloves and will be buying them as soon as my stash of tillman 24CS's are gone.

    Thumbs up an update

    some one was asking about the Miller gloves the other night and i got to thinking i should do an update for the post here wile i had fresh pic's of the gloves. yep they are still alive and well ok so not as nice looking as when they got here but cirtenly still working just as well as day one. none of the seams have ripped, the leather is still soft and comfortable to where. feel is still good in all the fingers.
    in short the only way you can tell they have been used is by the apearence and smell i would suspect. i am verry impressed. none of the other gloves i have tryed have lasted this long without getting hard and brittel or shrinking up out of shape due to heat. i am still not using the heat shield i always used befor to try to save the other gloves from over hest shrinkage and britelness. so these gloves have had it much harder than my other's ever have. i have started lerning stick welding so they are aso getting exposed to that as well now and are holding up great.
    i fully expected to be buying new gloves long befor now, but as it looks it will still be a long time befor i need to replace them. so even with a $20 sticker price they have proven to be cheaper than the others mearly by far outlasting them. so taking out the cosmetics was expected and they did lose that nice look, but they still have the great feel and function.
    thanks again for the great gloves.

    After waiting a couple of months for my order of samples to get here, they finally arrived. I passed out the gloves to the crew for use, abuse, and comments, and the feedback was par to whats been written here already. Through myown useage over the past six weeks I've been very impressed with their durabillity among other things.

    A couple of shots of my metal working gloves after six weeks / one pair, and every day use working on CAT equipment. Grease, heat, water, rough edges, you name it. Earlier today they looked like the ones in Fun4Now's post except I hand washed them this evening with Spray & Wash stain remover, revitalizing their youth. A few cuts, and the spandex back on the left hand is slowly burning from grinder sparks. Not bad.

    Our shop has completely switched over to the Arc Aromor gloves, for all metal working / welding applications.

    Thumbs up i still have and love mine.

    FWIW all my Miller gloves are still in use. well the metal handling gloves have seen better days and need replaced. but the welding ones are still in serviceable condition. much longer than any other glove's i have used.
    there a little beat up and showing there age, but still in use.

    Since this thread came back (probably by McFoolgle), I STILL haven't recieved my free pair yet! I actually had bought some because of all the posts, and yes, they are what they say they are! I just watch where I use 'em, so I don't get them too dirty
    I'm not late...
    I'm just on Hawaiian Time
