These work for small adult or big kids
I bought these for my 11-year-old who is welding for metal sculpture-making, torching, and glass blowing. She doesn't wear them the whole time because they are a bit bulky and her work needs fine motor control, but these seem to work for carrying pieces, handling hot rods, and pulling things out of the heat generally. They also fit my hands which are an extra small women's glove size. The length goes midway up the forearm, covers wrists very completely. They seem well made for the very reasonable price. There may be some blue leather dye transfer onto light fabric surfaces they come in contact with. A good product.
