  1. Claire

    These have got to be the best gardening gloves I have ever bought. I have small hands so it’s fantastic to find some gloves that actually fit. They are really comfortable and provide great protection for a wide range of everyday gardening tasks from weeding to planting out seedlings.

  2. Pat

    I purchased a pair of Navy Blue Elite gloves and was so pleased with them that I bought another pair for a friend. They are really comfortable to wear.

  3. Eileen

    These gloves fit very well and make gardening very comfortable. I was so impressed I have purchased these gloves as gifts for my friends.

  4. Helen

    Well, the gloves are just above and beyond anything else I’ve ever had!!! Lovely fit, not at all cumbersome. A real joy to be able to feel properly when you’re gardening!! If 5 is the top score, then I definitely give it a 5.

  5. Mo

    I like how these gloves fit my hands so snugly and I can pick things off the ground easily, great for clearing weeds.

  6. Eileen

    Another use for the Elites – checking your car tyre pressure. Whilst wearing the gloves you can get a really good grip to unscrew the valve covers whilst keeping your hands clean.

  7. Anna (verified owner)

    Was tempted to give these 5 stars – too many 5 star reviews can make me suspicious – but these gloves really are good.
    Tough but comfortable and so light that you can feel what you are doing. Great.

  8. Marilyn Downs (verified owner)

    I usually don’t like to wear gloves when doing some specific gardening activities that require careful handling of plants, but these are a revelation! Best gloves I’ve come across for delicate work in the garden. Highly recommended.

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.
