Our glove model 209 goes all the way up the shoulder. The buttersoft leather nestles around the entire arm. The gloves t have a zipper and can be put on and off easily. The glove does not have lining. Therefore the leather sits directly on the skin and does not slide. After wearing the glove one time, it adjusts to the wearer's arm and will fit like a second skin. If your arms are very lang or short, very strong or slim, we recommend this model made-to-measure.
