What do you do when you have worn out some of the best guide gloves you have come across? You buy new ones. (Alicia, I know how you like pics.)

Some improvements on the new ones is the thumb is now all leather. There is a drawstring to close them off. It also needs to be said that you will need to buy them a size up. I wear a medium and a large is the perfect fit  

Here is the review for the first pair years ago that still applies:

I won't write a review unless I have had a product for a least a year. After four years of these being my primary digit protection for guiding, skiing, snowshoeing they're still going strong.

You will need to waterproof these yearly. The double leather reinforced palms and thumb hold up well  

Also wash the liners regularly because your hands will sweat. The sheep wool in the liners works very well. The removable liners allows you to dry them quickly.    

I find these much warmer that the Guide Glove that I bought for my son. They are not as bulky as they look. If you buy them large you can fit thin liners inside or hand warmers for those -35° days.

Thanks for the pictures, Paul! I also really like gloves, so thanks for the update on yours. Buying the same product is one of the best endorsements.
