Just adding a bit here. A buddy of mine found some NFL Equipment football gloves and they seem to be holding up fairly good. They are a tight snug fit allowing for good grip and pretty darn durable. I got a little sidetracked in my search and will likely look into getting a pair of these myself or at least check out the Atlas gloves mentioned above.
I actually have a pair of the Footjoy gloves (think they are for golf right?) that I bought in the winter and yes they are stylish, great for using with a blower, but didn't put them to use pulling weeds as they look to want to tear fairly easy if going that route.
