SALE SALE - Bear Knuckles - bison leather ergonomic work gloves

Save 42%
Original Price $83.00
Current Price $48.00

Well ... with all candor, we were disappointed in the bison leather in these gloves.  We had high hopes.   The design is very good; fit is good, too ... but the leather is just not as tough as the bison leather gloves we are use to selling.

So ... on sale they go!  at the sale price of $35 they are still a good deal; just don't expect the same wear quality as the rest of our bison leather gloves .... regardless of manufacturer.

(back in early 2022 these were ....)  NEW from Bear Knuckles Gloves - same great ergonomic finger flex system ... but in American bison leather.  

  • Extremely durable Bison leather that lasts 2 times longer than the Bear Knuckles cowhide gloves (Hey ... they are the one making this claim ... not me ... but I don't doubt that the bison will outlast the steer!)
  • Patented Double Wedge design (Extreme Curved Finger)
  • Winged thumb design
  • Shirred back (Elastic stretch band for secure fit)
  • Purpose placed gussets for longer lasting construction
  • Minimized seams for reduced stitching wear
  • Ergonomic design reduces hand fatigue and increases comfort

Break-in Steps

  1. Put gloves on
  2. Spritz with water
    Note: If gloves are water/oil resistant, use mink oil or leather conditioner instead of water
  3. Wear until dry

Maintenance & Cleaning

All Bear Knuckles gloves are safe to hand or machine wash and dry. After machine washing, gloves will shrink to original size and may be stiff. Follow Break-in Steps above to recondition.

Best gloves ever!

Found these on a trip through Texas! Had to order more!

He LOVES these gloves

I got these for my better half, he has large hands and they fit him like a pair of gloves he’s had forever. The knuckle gussets really help with the comfort. Simply said “He likes them” now if I can just get him to wear them and not try and save them forever. I will definitely buy them again for him.

Well made glove, but not as form fitting as my husband would’ve liked. A bit bulky.

John V. (Ontario, Canada)
Bison Bear Knuckle gloves

Unfortunately the pair I received have shorter fingers on the left glove. They are each about a quarter inch shorter than the right glove. Otherwise the leather is very comfortable. Large fit my hands properly except the left glove due to what I mentioned.

John: Let me get back to the store and 'find' a pair with matching finger length. That should not be.. and I apologize for that. Or if you prefer a refund, just let me know. I'll be back late the 27th or early the 28th and we will get this fixed. Thanks much for the other reviews and look forward to more.

Best wishes
