  1. Robert

    Unsure if I picked the right gloves as they didn’t look like gardening gloves to me. Nothing daunted I wore them and trimmed back a large bed of raspberry canes. Surprised to find that the gloves weren’t shredded and my hands were still warm after an hour. So hopefully I have ended up with the right item after all.
    Pruned the large Bramley apple tree this morning, and have the other half to do this afternoon. Gloves still in one piece and keeping hands really warm. I am going to wear them to take out the two Cairns for their walk first before climbing up the apple tree again. Like your style Clare, Good luck with the business. I will certainly use your web page again and give you 5/5.

    Received gloves very promptly, good fit perfect for walking the dog in the rain. Good to have the personal touch from Clare, excellent service you deserve to do well.

  3. Valerie Morrison (verified owner)

    My gloves arrived next day, they are a great fit even over my arthritic knuckles. I am a volunteer gardener so attend in all weathers, these gloves kept my hands cosy on a very cold January day last week. Thank you Clare for getting together such a great selection.

  4. Karen (verified owner)

    Thank you Clare for such a speedy service and providing such amazing gardening gloves! I definitely give them five stars for warmth and dexterity. I have not found them waterproof but am delighted with my purchase. So much so that I have ordered another pair, to wash and wear!

  5. Victoria

    I like these so much I asked for a second pair for Christmas, to wash and wear as mentioned by another reviewer. They’re my dog walking gloves, as they keep my hands warm but aren’t cumbersome. And I echo the comments on the excellent service!

  6. Marjorie Condie (verified owner)

    Thank you Clare for your very prompt service. The gloves arrived a few days after ordering them. They are so cosy and waterproof, absolutely excellent for both gardening and walking the dog. No more freezing fingers. I hope extra ones for Christmas stocking fillers and I am sure they will be appreciated. Amazing service from you.

  7. Don Bird (verified owner)

    Great service from beginning to end. Excellent gloves, good fit and comfortable, clearly and accurately described on the web site, and very fully informed of progress of order. Very professional with a delightful personal touch, right down to a note from Clare with the order.

    These gloves are brilliant, definitely the best gardening gloves. I have small hands and struggle to find gardening gloves to fit me. I also suffer a bit with Raynaulds, and have never found gloves that keep my hands warm. Last week i spent 2 hours at my allotment doing some wet and muddy work in the winter and my hands stayed warm and dry throughout. Like others I found Claire’s customer service excellent. I wasn’t sure which size to buy because my hands are inbetween sizes on the chart. I emailed Claire who responded quickly, she took my hand measurements and advised on the best fit. I have already bought more gloves for presents and will definitely be back.

    Everything I have bought from Claire has been excellent (hand creams and gloves), so top marks for product, quality, service, reliability, customer care, every aspect you could wish for. Recipient friends are invariably delighted with their gifts. Highly recommended!
    I find I keep returning…….

    I bought these gloves on the recommendation of the equestrian reviews. They perform exactly as described, keeping my hands warm and dry on the coldest and wettest of days. I am so impressed I have recommended to friends on our yard too. Easy ordering and fast delivery.

    Excellent service very prompt delivery…Great gloves to.. Tegera 517 – thermal and waterproof gardening gloves. I use them for riding in the chill and damp…Thank you Claire

    I’m over the moon with my new gloves. i used them in the garden and on the allotment on the weekend. They kept my hands dry and warm. pulling up parsnips was the ultimate test for me as the ground was frozen and the gloves have a great grip so i had no issues. i highly recommend these gloves.

  13. Jane Napper

    So pleased to have found your website – at last a range of gardening gloves to fit small hands – something which seems to be low priority for garden centres & on-line garden sites. These Tegera gloves fit well & will let me garden in cold weather (in Scotland!) which will be so useful.

  14. Shirley Reynolds (verified owner)

    Hi Clare. Many thanks for your expertise in helping me find the right glove size. Your customer service is excellent.
    Perfect fit and so comfortable to wear. Dexterity is precisely what I was looking for.
    So good I’m getting another pair today.

  15. Don Bird (verified owner)

    I have just bought my second pair of these gloves, the previous pair having been brilliant throughout last winter, despite some robust treatment. They became a little less waterproof only after I cut into them with a sharp pair of secateurs, so will now be used as very serviceable cycling gloves. They are very comfortable, thin enough to still be able to work with fairly small plants etc. but thick enough to give good protection from the worst of the cold. Great service from this amazing company, and lovely personal touch of handwritten note as others have mentioned

    Dear Clare

    What superb service – gloves ordered yesterday and arrived this morning. I couldn’t believe my eyes when the postman arrived with them. The gardening gloves are the best I have ever had and I give them as gifts to my daughters as well so I will certainly be re-ordering from you each time we all need new ones. They keep hands cosy and waterproof and comfortable and especially when it gets colder and there is such a lot to do in the garden they are ideal.

    Thank you so much for your excellent service.

    Hello Clare,
    No problem.
    The black and green gloves stood up to some very tough farming jobs and I couldn’t believe how dry and warm my hands were after freezing rain, opening and closing tough gates. Definitely protected my hands.
    I literally wore them out.
    I ordered a different pair too, to see what the dexterity is like for finer jobs.

How to size your hands for great fitting gloves

  1. Print out the Hand-Size-Guide, lay it flat on a table. Lovely Hands – Final Hand-Size-Guide
  2. Standing up, place your right hand over the blue hand outline, follow the written instructions, and keep your fingers together not splayed. Note the size number suggested and look for this in the ‘select a size’ option on the product page. Manufacturers recommend rounding up the size if you are in between.
  3. Other factors to bear in mind;
    1. If you are tall you tend to have hands needing the larger glove sizes.
    2. If your fingers are long or chunky this may also necessitate a larger size.
    3. Depending on how stretchy the fabric you may get a better fit in your lower size.

Stretchy gloves –

Ladies & men’s – Maxiflex Elite, Active and Ultimate, Showa 370, 341, 306.                    Ladies               –Tegera 90066, 90068, 90065

My personal example;

The blue outline suggests I am between a size 6 and 7, closer to the 6.

In stretchy gloves where I want to have my fingers right down to the ends I wear a 6. In leather gloves that do not have so much stretch I wear a 7. I have slim fingers.


Men – please see the table of men’s hand measurements for each individual glove on the product pages.


If in any doubt contact me or order a selection to try on at home. Returning goods is easy, please see the policy.
