Gave up on gloves long ago. Maybe if its cold out, but for warmer weather we wrap our fingers in hockey tape. I
ts a bit of a trick to get the feel right (not too tight or loose). Once you have it down, it gives excellent dexterity and wear resistance. If you're laying lots of block, or if the block is particularly sharp edged you may have to reapply the tape, once or twice a day, but its pennies compared to gloves. I buy a case of the stuff when its on sale at costco.
