I bought a pair of ansell gloves for about 25 bucks because I did a number of big mulch jobs and I needed something that was durable. I would buy these again in a heartbeat but I still haven't destroyed them. The one weak spot would be the backside knuckle area that can be abraded but for hand protection from rubbing these are great. Here is the company and they have many different types. They are available in the big box stores. Good Luck.
