    Maybe when it's cold out, but during summer, gloves would just bottle up more heat. No way am I ever wearing gloves when the temps are above 50 Farenheit.

    I had some nice ones from HD that came with knee pads, lasted 4 months then fell apart, I picked some up from AutoZone, $18.00 a pair, with vent holes...I use those to handle equipment, for mulch or anything else i use leather gloves.....gloves all the time..

    I could use a cheap pair of catcher's shinguards for trimming, but I just don't see me wearing gloves in the summer.

    I get these at my local "ace" Hardware for 99 cents a pair, they are great for mowing and mulching and such, They really help on mowers my letting you get a better grip on the handles. They last me a 2-4 weeks per pair and if you get "nasties" on em you don't feel bad about grabbing a new pair

    GO HERE for the best gloves. <-Best gloves I have ever owned. I always mow/trim with gloves to dampen the vibration that usually numbs my hands. With these gloves, my hands Don't get sweaty or nasty. They have an excellent wicking quality to them. :D
