work gloves

Hey everyone. Ive been spending too much money on work gloves and was wondering if any had a pair to recommend. Mechanix are the best i have used so far. They start falling apart at around 2 weeks, around 40 hours. both of these pairs were at about 3 weeks.

seems like i need something with reinforced fingers. I do my best to take care of them too and keep them from getty wet or too much grease. i wear the gloves pretty tight because i need fingertip dexterity. the palm gets really thin and turns shiny and metallic. lots of brake dust probably. ill give these a shot now.

im just tired of spending all this money on gloves, but i guess it might just be something that i will have to accept

that makes sense. if they are going to get torn up, might as well buy some cheap ones in bulk

You can wash mechanix gloves. I toss mine in the wash now and then and they're fine.

Are you the guy that works in a tire shop or is that some one else? At work I use plain old leather work gloves. They work great and last for ever. I rarely have a problem not being able to use my fingers.

I have a pair of Fox cycling gloves that are pretty similar to your Mechanix ones you posted. I wear them quite regularly and they're holding up pretty well and they were $30.

Yeah rubber gloves dont work very well at stopping that steel belt that is about to go sailing through your hand.

I want a decent pair too, I just hate that most of the nice ones are too thick on the fingertips. I can't wear gloves that make it so I can't feel stuff, it annoys me too much. Post if you find any good ones.

I some times have trouble wiht .25 oz weights and then I just take my gloves off. Or I pull one finger out of the glove and use the leather to hold the weight and then hit the finger of the glove with the hammer. Works great.

New leather gloves suck for the first couple days but once you break them in the are very nice. Just dont get them wet.

I usually do not wear any. If I need gloves for something, I just put leather gloves on.
