Same here but when it's cold I like to wear white water rafting gloves, tough, durable, insulated and water proof.

The rest of the year I can't stand the heat, plus I like to feel what I'm doing.

Normally I go without gloves, but when I do I use the leather ones from Red Wings. They are about $30/pair, but they are def worth it.

Oh no, no :nono:

White water rafting gloves are made of Neoprene, I forgot to mention it's tough, durable, insulated, water proof and cheap!.
And I mean Water PROOF, you can't get water through the material.
Keep my hands warm, dry, and I can do the roughest work in these yards and they don't mess me around, the material doesn't break or tear.
Now the good news with Neoprene is even if you do get water inside like through the arm opening, it still keeps your hands warm.
Yes sir, you could be loading ice chunks for all I care, that's what they're made for.

I'm still on my first set, bought them 8 years ago thou I do need a new pair now because they are wore out.
All right, I lied, they do wear out in time.
Cost me about $20-$25...

Here's an example, just googled these:

I bought mine at Wal-Mart thou lol, not sure if they still carry them.

DG, how do the fingertips hold up? That is where I have the most trouble, all the fingertips wear out on my gloves.

I can't imagine wearing neoprene ANYTHING in the summer around here. There's no doubt that the material is durable and waterproof though.

Hate wearing any kind of gloves. It's just not the same.Leather ones, all the time.....my Mexi buddy just tore a chunk of meat off his right hand last week, he was on the 36'' WB and turned in a yard, picket fence has a nail sticking out............ripped him good, it was his first yard, after that he had to go see a doctor, blood everywhere......now he has to wear some type of brace, I guess the dr stated he pulled muscles in that hand as well???????

Always wear gloves, you never know....

I most of the time if it is warm I don't wear gloves but I do have a pair of iron clad rancher gloves the I use when trimming hedges or doing tree work. For the cold I have a pair of insulated string knit gloves with a rubber palm which are good for late fall cleanups and I have a pair of carhartt insulated waterproof gloves for when I am out shoveling snow.

Personally, I couldn't see working without gloves, I can count how many times I've had my hands saved from injury because I was wearing gloves. In the warm, and slightly cooler months, I like to wear a thinner glove, it helps the skin breathe better. Earlier this year I was using these gloves, http://www.dickiesgloves.com/ProductDetail.asp?BrandID=2&CategoryID=1&ProductID=74, but they were down right horrible. After about a week they had holes in 3 of the 10 fingers, and the leather was turning the palms of my hands yellow. I replaced them with these gloves, http://www.mechanix.com/the-original-grip-glove, which are a whole lot better. The fingers are a lot thicker and so I haven't had any issues there, and because of the "grip" feature you never have a problem with grabbing things. IMO, you can't go wrong with any Mechanix Wear gloves.

mechanix are way to expensive, I used to use them. I use firm grip or whatever gloves from Home Depot now, they are like 9.99 for the all purpose ones that's what I use. They wear a LOT slower than mechanix and fit better as well. Try them before you spend $30 on an inferior product.

I wear gloves for two reasons.

1. Thorns in the summer. I just wear a light nitrile glove. Heavy palms, breathable back.

2. Snow work in the winter. For that I wear Cabelas Roughneck Gore-Tex insulated gloves. I take care of a ton of sidewalks and calcium chloride destroys gloves. These have lasted the longest, but I can only seem to get 1 winter with a pair. And yes, I do wash and condition the leather regularly.

Other than that...I never wear gloves. I like calloused hands. I'm not a freaking pencil pusher. My hands bear the scars of work for the world to see.

I wear gloves because I have a condition where my hands always sweat. If I didn't I wouldn't be able to hold anything in my hands without slippage.

Have a pair of Columbia "Fast Trek Omni-heat" fleece gloves under the Christmas tree.

Like wool socks for cold days, find they feel pretty good most any day (merino wool). They also make them with moisture wicking materials mixed in to keep your feet dry.

I'm gonna look for those for the winter, I like mechanix gloves for summer(hot, but I use the backs of em to dab sweat fm. my brow and keeps me from bleaching my t-shirt shoulder by wiping with it).

I got some dipped ones from harbor freight but not the thick rough ones, theyre black and smooth, can feel more.

nothing like new socks right out of the package (aaaahhhhhh!) when I get rich, i'll use em as disposables.:laugh:

Only wear gloves in the spring when its cool out and fall for clean ups.....

Socks: Smartwool....some just above the ankle or calf high. Everyday no matter the temps...try them and you will never go back to cotton.

I only wear gloves for:

1. Cold weather, Spring or Fall (sometimes double gloves in the Fall, especially when sitting on the ZTR)
2. Working with rough debris, e.g. cleaning up brush, cutting trees, etc
3. Working with something nasty, attempting to keep my hands clean
4. Working with heavy duty handles (e.g. digging bar)

Other than those times, bare hands, ones that get callouses.

when wearing gloves, I use the simple ones -- got a bag at Harbor Freight, 6 pair for $8.00 (?). One pair lasts two years. I'm going to get old before the bag of six wear out. Oops, ... already am old.

Best ive found extremely tough cool in summer warm in winter and super soft and you can feel with your fingers to work on small stuff my 2 cents

I prefer to work without gloves for the most part. I like to feel what I am doing. When it does get cold enough I wear mechanic type gloves I bought from Harbor Freight for about $6. They have good dexterity while keeping my hands warm enough. When I am working with firewood I use heavy leather gloves to stand up to the abrasion.

Mechanix quick fits for me. Too many things with fangs, teeth, spines and poisons around here.
