Soft, but heavy 4-5oz American elk leather. Elk skin has a beautiful grain finish and requires very little maintenance. Superior abrasion resistance to deer skin and tolerates moisture very well. A fantastic all around work and chore glove. All purchases are cut and hand sewn to order. Please allow one week for product to ship! All leathers come from natural hides which may contain scarring, giving each pair its own character.
Measure around your palm... If you don't have a soft tape measure.. use a string, mark it, lay it flat and measure it. This will give you your general size. If you like more or less room you could go up or down from there. See illustration by going to top of the website and selecting About :: Sizing.

Thanks Jim, confirmed that you ordered Black Elk, not Buffalo. Glad you are happy with them!
I’m wearing the black elk ropers every day now, but just for quick barn chores and driving. They’re good looking and fairly heavy/thick, so I suspect they’ll hold up well. One glove finger on each hand seems to twist so that my finger touches the seem when driving, especially. I think this might calm down and straighten out as the gloves are broken in? Overall I like them.
