    Waiting for my trainer and I to be dispatched. Got my safety equipment this morning.

    I was still retired when I woke up this morning. Now look what I did... LOL

    Not pictured are my leather gloves. I'll get a pair tomorrow. Any flatbedder glove suggestions?

    If you're not going to get dirty-dirty, dont wear gloves at all. But for the times when you must wear them, I buy just plain leather gloves in summer and insulated leather gloves for winter. They're not going to last long enough to buy 'quality', just get the $15 ones at whatever farm store is in your area.

    I'm not big on using gloves, but when I do I actually prefer the leather uninsulated ones that Harbor Freight sells for about 8 bucks I think. Make sure you try them on first, as the x-large size seems to vary somewhat between large & x-large...

    I get my gloves from Harbor Freight also, and as mentioned try them on, I have really big hands and the extra large are more like medium sometimes. Cheap is best because wet chains will make a mess out of gloves in a heartbeat
