I wear one like that . Don't like heavy ones to hard to pickup small nails and screws . My hands stand warm most of the time, keep a spare pair in front of the heater to change out. Can't wear the cloth back rubber ones my hand freeze in them.

I remember when I came up with that concept decades ago (only it was going to be the thumb, middle and index finger with some type of fur-material for warmth) so it'd be easier to get nails/screws from the pouch... We were on a balcony in the cold, closing it in and I looked at my bro and said "you know what we need?"...

Didn't do anything about it though, so...

Re: Gloves


Some days, when it gets down to about 20 below, I prefer a set of leather mitts with wool mitts inside them. The ones I wear have a "trigger finger" so I can run a saw with them on.
Above minus 20, I use a pair of regular lined gloves like njgutterguy shows.

Re: Gloves


I have a couple different approaches. One is the mechanics nitrile glove under jersey gloves. I'll keep multiple pairs of the jerseys on the dash to dry out from the defroster. I'll take off the jersey glove and just use the nitrile if I need to handle small items.

I'll also just use a pair of gloves clam diggers use. They're designed to have excellent grip when handling muddy things and are pretty durable. They're very similar to latex kitchen gloves. All the ones around here don't seem to have a brand on them - I pick them up at gas station convenience stores.

I've tried neoprene gloves, and they work pretty well, but you don't have the ability to grab small items with them.

One thing I haven't tried is the metallized glove liners. I use metallized sock liners, and they really do keep your feet warmer than just wearing a smart wool sock. I plan to try the metallized glove liners under the nitrile glove, they're very thin.

Re: Gloves


Jersey gloves for me. $1 per pair. When they get wet I get a new pair and dry out the first pair. If they get a hole, I throw them away.
One thing I like is that they come off easy. I can pull them off, do what I need to, they put them back on easy.

My son wears the rubber dipped ones. They make 2 thicknesses. He has a preference, but I don't remember what it is.

I have been trying the latex gloves under the jersey gloves. My hands don't sweat as much as I thought they would.

Re: Gloves


Depends on the weather. When we are framing below 40 in the pouring rain I wear knit fingerless gloves with thick rubber fishing gloves over them. Getting the right fit there was crucial because if the rubber is too tight then you get too much of a hand workout swinging a hammer.

When it's warmer I wear the rubber or neoprene dipped knit gloves. The rubber ones have a tendency to melt when they're in a hot car and make a mess, but the neoprene ones wear out really fast, especially if you're picking up a lot of fasteners. If it's rainy I swap to a fresh pair at lunch.

I've tried those fancier synthetic leather/mesh/articulated gloves, but find that they don't last very long and at $20/pair that gets expensive.

I've started not using gloves when doing indoor trim and finish work.

For work that's predominantly hauling lumber or moving material I'll use thick leather work gloves. I've repaired my favorite pair several times.

Re: Gloves


I've been using the medium duty Husky gloves from HD. They are only $20 for a 3 pack and seem just as good as the comparable iron clads.

I also wear nitriles gloves underneath if they get wet.

I second these gloves.

The ones I have leave my finger tips exposed which I find helps greatly when handling small connectors and parts.

I usually work indoors so I don't worry much about my fingers getting cold.

Re: Gloves


Almost any interior work in existing buildings I wear latex gloves. No, those aren't my fingerprints on your trim / appliance / whatever...

If I am any place nice or freshly painted I do the same.

You don't realize how dirty your hands are until you see your prints all over a newly painted wall

Re: Gloves


I started using the Superior Touch cut resistant gloves this year and love them, best gloves I've used yet.

If it's a semi-disposable application (like doing spray foam) I'll use the HD Gorilla ones. For demolition/garbage removal I use a pair of leather gloves.

I only use Atlas gloves. Therma-fits are great for cold weather and the blue pair work great for everything else. Excellent grip, tight fit, good dexterity, easy on and off, and CHEAP! They get washed often and purchased in bulk from Amazon. I seem to have pairs of them about everywhere I turn.

If doing wet things in the cold I switch to an Atlas 465 I believe which is a fishermans glove with a liner. Same thing I use for my scuba drysuit and my kayaking drysuit.

Re: Gloves


cold sucks but wet and cold sucks more. Was loading up the trailer in the wet snow, was fine for a bit, but as the gloves soaked through.. Once you stopped moving, it sucks.

I just picked up an inverter generator, Im gonna try running a small 600 watt heater in the trailer through the day to keep it warm. I never see anyone insulate their trailers, but I think I might just do so with reflectix now.
