These should be your first pair, or your backup pair.
If you're brand new to welding, get a pair of these, they are cheap and they will do the job. Plus they are just good to learn with for being brand new. They aren't the best gloves in the world, but there are people who use these all in all anyway. I keep a pair of these as my backup pair.
For the price, they are what they are, really I want to give these a 3 star rating, but they are not meant to be anything special, and are not that expensive. Plus like I said, some folks just use these only because they are cheap, and I say more power to them. It wouldn't hurt to slap a cheap back pad to one of these either, that would help your hand from getting a hard glove out of these.
Good backup pair
