    I change gloves like I change underwear.... once a week


    In the summer I'll use regular ol leather cowboy gloves. 2 or 3 weeks tops before the finger tips are worn through though

    In the winter Ill have half a dozen cheap lined ones on the go, dry em out with the bunk heater each night.

    I'd like to try those kong ones out, however I'm skeptical for the price. I'd have to get 2 months out of a pair to be worth it..... i don't think I got more than 2 weeks out of the last pair of expensive oil field gloves I tried. All that de-icer crap we are surrounded with seems to accelerate the falling apart.

    Bought 80 pair of leather gloves at an auction for $90 a couple years ago. A pair last me about 2 months. Been the best darn glove I ever had and about $1.25 a pair.

    BlackCanyon Outfitters Hi-Impact, Hi-Visibility Gloves, Gloves, BHG601

    These are the exact ones i have... But they are protected on the fingers and knuckles to keep u from busting them up.. The little red things on the palm wear off after regular use but like i said i had these about 6 months now, throwing chains and binders and tarps and straps in wet, cold, hot, humid weather and they still work fine after drying them out if getting wet
     
    cke, Tug Toy and JonJon78 Thank this.

    I found some cut resistant gloves at a FL dealer that stood up well to abrasion. Like when you are rolling up straps and use a hand to guide it. That usually wears spots in gloves quickly. They we're very pourous and not good for cold weather. I would like to try the "chain metal" gloves for food service sometime, probably in the summer.

    It's good to carry multiple pairs for when it gets wet. Glov s wear out very fast when they get wet. Swap them out for a dry pair and even the cheap gloves will last a while.

    Might consider some of these as well. It seems like there are just too many factors that go into how a glove will hold up. Everyone has a different experience with cheap and not so cheap ones.. One thing is for sure though, get a glove wet or expose it to chemicals and it'll die quickly under use.

    I have an old leather pair at the house that while a little stiff now and have some holes in them, work great.

    Anyhow, here's some more options:
    Work Gloves - Wide Selection of Industrial, Leather, and Winter Work Gloves

    Good luck,
    Michael

    Harbor freight has some pretty good gloves for the money. Like previously stated they are something that you need to view as disposable . Just due to the nature of the job.

    Speaking of gloves. What is the best solution to keep your hands warm and dry in the winter?
