The welder's gloves I got from GS are huge. I can'tarticulate with them on.I have small female hands and these barely stay on. I know most welders are men but some women also weld. Are there smaller ones avail or other options for protection from the heat?

    One reason you want a larger glove is if you do pick up something hot and the temp gets to your skin, you want to take the gloves off and let them cool. When you do that, you shake your arms downward and the gloves fall off without grabbing them with your other hand. If the glove is very hot and you have to grab the glove, you may cause a burn doing so. I use TIG gloves and metal hooks to handle what I need.

    I use some PVC "Best" brand gloves that I got at Grainger.  They are large, but my wife can use them.

    I like them better than leather because grease from food doesn't soak into them.
