    I've used Ironclads Heavy Utility Landscaper. Although I've tried many other brands. They are very durable (gotten about 2-3 yrs out of one pair) at least what I've used them for, and they have an "amazing tactical feel"...lol...they aren't huge and clumsy in other words...but they are regularly $26. But I found them on sale for $15ish and so I bought 4 pair. Just depends on what you like for your work. That's my 2 cents though.
     
  3. Make sure the gloves you use are 'task specific'. Got sharp/prickly branches?....Double palm leather gloves. Just loading up the truck? .....light mechanics gloves. Griping a heavy greasy chain? Back to the old cheap double palm leather gloves. Just pushing around the 21in. mower? Use the lightweight nitrile coated ones. No one glove does it all.

    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.
