Gloves


Whats the latest and greatest? Its cold this time of year here and I grab gloves to handle stuff outdoors of course.

These $15.00 Workforce gloves I have been buying dont hold up. They are fine unless they get a little wet then the finger tips wear off too quick.

Re: Gloves


I tend to use those rubber dipped ones. I buy them as tight as I can to get dexterity and have no loose space in the fingertips. I find that for $4, they hold up much better than $20 gloves that get destroyed after one afternoon of driving screws.

Me too. If it gets really cold, you can use a jersey glove first and then the dipped one. The brand name is usually Frosty grip or Chilly grip.

I find that if I put on the nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight on first it really helps.

My hands sweat in those even if it's in the single digits and teens.

My fingers get cold very easy, so that's not a problem for me. I'll usually take too warm over not warm enough when I'm working outside in the winter. I hate the cold.

Same here. You wouldn't think that they would make much of a difference but they do.

Re: Gloves


Polar penguins in the winter and then their summer version during warm months.

Nobody wears out fingertips as fast as a mason rubbing cement and these things hold up.

DC Glove has some of the best choices and is a great source for buying bulk.

Re: Gloves


I guess it is what it is. The cloth backed rubber palms have their perks so do the knobby Jersey ones but they all have water issues. What holds up better is a toss up.
The beefier you get the more clumsy.

Re: Gloves


These: Atlas Therma-Fit...they're all I've found to combat the cold...and I buy lots of them. They hold up well, but I like to have extras all over so that if one pair gets wet there's another pair within reach!

I have the same problem, I wear jerseys most times, I might go through a pair or two on a wet day, usually not much more than three or four days outa one pair but they are cheap

Now if I'm not doing much finger movement I will get something thicker usually what ever is around, not anything in particular.
