Light weight breathable gloves?

I've been using XL Grease monkey Gorilla Grip gloves from Home Depot this summer, I like the light weight and breathable glove that they are, but need a XXL and cannot find them in this size. Is there any comparable to these in a XXL?

Yea It's called your skin. Buck up and use your hands. Gloves are for women.

Hahahaha! I only use gloves during spring and fall clean ups. Even in winter I only wear them when handling salt

I'm in Florida and I use gloves when I'm on the mower. I'm constantly pushing limbs and plants out of the way and you never know what is living there. My customers have jungle like yards. One time a snake was in one of the bushes as I drove by. Plus they keep my hands protected from the sun and poisen ivy and such. Just the cheapo RR leather gloves from HD. $1.99 pr.

Harbor freight has goat skin gloves for about $6. Nice light glove. Stitching has a bad habit of coming apart though. Best part is they are not really affected by water, same with pig skin but it is a heavier material.
