I have stupidly big hands. After going through a couple pair of XXL gloves that broke on the thumb webbing due to being too small. Seems all the xxxl gloves I find on a google search are out of stock or longer being produced. Anyone have any leads on some gloves for abnormally large hands?

Thanks,
Jethro

What type of gloves, leather, bee gloves, nitrite, or something else? I have started wearing nitrile gloves and they work pretty well if you get thick ones.

Could you wear normal leather gloves that are XXXL and then tape them to your jacket at the wrist? I tape gloves on when I am working in fiberglass insulation, so I suspect you could also do this beekeeping.

I would like leather gloves with sleeves, I know some have luck with nitric but I do cutouts sometimes and would like the durability of leather.

I mostly use nitrile, but do have some leather. I got the cheap, 3-pairs-in-a-pack welding gloves from Harbor Freight. $10 for 3 pair. They don't have sleeves, but do have long cuffs. I tear out the flannel lining inside the gloves. They're then single layer leather. The white ones are thinner and more supple. The brown ones are thicker and more durable.
