Suppose you walk into a department store looking to purchase a new jacket for the fall season. Your current one is completely threadbare, and it is high time for a replacement. Upon arriving in the correct section of the store, you are met with a wide assortment of options to choose from and confronted with making some purchasing decisions. Let’s discuss what those might be. First, you want a jacket that will provide a level of endurance — at least a season or two. Second, you want a jacket that is stylish and contemporary, but functional and comfortable. Third, you look to save money if you can on this purchase. In short, you are looking for the best possible jacket for the money paid; in essence, you are looking for value in terms of this purchase.
The definition of value in terms of hand protection is not altogether different, but worthy of some examination.
