- Geier & Leather
The Bison Roper gloves by Geier are the toughest, longest wearing work gloves you’ll ever meet. They’ve got a reinforced palm, and are made from American Bison hides tanned for a supple feel, and a beautiful golden hue that belies their exceptional wearing qualities. The half sizes let you choose the right fit, and push these gloves over the top with an astounding range of motion, dexterity.
This is the perfect for clearing brush, yard work, or handling rough materials. Gonna put up some barb-wire fence? throw a pair in the truck. The gore on the cuff ensures your shirt sleeves naturally fall inside the glove keeping out thorns, shrubbery, and debris. The reinforcement in the palm adds extra padding, and wear protection right where it's needed when grabbing onto rope, chain, or just about anything smaller than a beer can.
Geier builds the Bison Roper gloves from tannery run leather sourced exclusively from ranch raised American bison. The texture and grain of bison leather has distinctive character, and adds to the tough, western look of the gloves.
When you hit the range looking to rope bison, you’ll thank yourself for wearing your American made Bison Ropers.
Made in the USA from ranch-raised American bison leather.
Measuring your glove size:
Measure around the widest part of your palm excluding your thumb. The measurement in inches, is your unlined glove size. If you have exceptionally long fingers, or will be wearing the gloves with liners order up a size. If you are left handed, measure your left hand, if you are right handed, measure your right hand.
Geier has been making gloves in Centralia, Washington since 1927. Their long history of attention to detail shines through in the superior fit and finish of their products.
Geier uses several grades of leather, but none that would compromise the wear or durability of their gloves.
Tannery Run leather is perfect for work gloves. The best, and poorest hides are graded out leaving leather suitable for grain (hair) side cutting. Typically leather of this grade will exhibit some scarring or marking. Under no circumstances is the wearing quality of the glove affected.
Select leather is the clearest leather available. Wild animal hides such as deer or elk are never perfect, however imperfections are kept to minimum.
Reverse (Suede) leather will typically have numerous scars, marks and blemishes. For this reason, the leather is used flesh (suede) side out. Again, under no circumstances is the wearing quality, or durability of the glove compromised.
Geier gloves are made to last, and will become even more comfortable with age. Kept dry, the natural oils from your skin will keep them soft and comfortable. Air-dry wet gloves; although they may stiffen, they will soon soften back up with use.
