What to know before you buy women’s leather gloves

Length

Women’s leather gloves generally come in three varieties: wrist, gauntlet and coat lengths.

  • Wrist length: Wrist length gloves reach all the way to the wrist bone and provide coverage around the heel of the hand. These gloves are the shortest option, though they can be an inch longer or shorter.
  • Gauntlet variety: These gloves vary in length, but most of them go beyond the wearer’s wrist to around halfway up the forearm. Gauntlet-length gloves offer a lot of protection against the elements. They also make for convenient driving gloves.
  • Coat length: These gloves are usually as long as, if not longer than, gauntlet variety gloves. What makes them different is that they have a wider opening.
