I've had great luck with Foot Joy cold weather gloves. Kinda pricey, but comfortable and washable and stylish. Especially stylish. Lots of style points.

What are gloves? Are those the things that doctors put on their hands?

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.

I like the mechanix wear original gloves. They seem to last a while without the finger tips breaking down. I have had mine for a few years but finally they have worn holes in all the fingertips but now I can use the touchscreen on my phone so it is actually a plus (at least for me). They are light and somewhat breathable for trimming, blowing, and push mowing. Just my $.02

I'm going to turn all you lawn-freaks onto the best cheap gloves you can buy.

I probably will wear no other gloves, ever.

I use leather padded palm Mechanix gloves. You can get them in fast fit or with the velcro strap. They will generally last a whole season. The new velcro isn't very good though so i have transitioned into the fast fit style.

I get mine at harbor freight. Like 3 bucks a pair and they are thin leather and hold up for a few weeks of mulching.

I am nearly 6 foot 9 and I never see XXXL gloves. I squeeze my hands into XL gloves because that's all I can find. They last about 3 days. I gave up and don't wear gloves anymore.
