For winter, fleece lined cowhide or lined jersey gloves with nitrile gloves under them works wonders. In the summer, i used to bale in mechanics gloves but i would wear them through in a week now i just go bare handed. If i do use gloves in the summer to grease equipment they are the gray leather with red and blue cloth. Get em packed with enough grease and they are water resistant and last forever.
Get my gloves at Rural King.

Bein is I work at tractor supply part time, I also get my gloves at there. The heavy duty leather's can last me almost 6 weeks before fencing kills them off.

Summer gloves are Firm Grip gloves that Home Depot sells ($12, I think). Fairly cheap and last about a month of high tensile fence install (post and wire handling). Obviously the high contact points (finger pads) wear through after two weeks. I cut off the fingers once the holes become a hassle and then switch to new ones after I get enough splinters or wire punctures. For winter work I used to just wear some good old brown jerseys under these.

This past October I decided to splurge and I bought a pair of insulated and waterproof Iron Clads ($26.50). Expensive but fantastic. I purchased supposedly the correct size of XL but they were very tight. I got used to it after awhile. I certainly wouldn't be able to pick up any change but I could almost grab fence staples. They kept my hands warm as long as I flexed them once in awhile. They lasted for two months before I started to notice cracks in the fingers along the seams. The plastic liner started to show through.

I almost always wear gloves. With all the metal pointy stuff and rough wood it's just smarter.

Depending on this years economy I might just stick with the Iron Clads. It's simply a better product.

I wear mechanics impact gloves when I'm working on my truck and its still hot. Otherwise I go barehanded, Ive worked fields, baling hay, and plweing the old way with a draft team and a turning plow, or whatever I needed. Als o did horse logging, and mechanics, along with a bunch of other stuff. I was raised to preserve the old traditions. Did a lot of forge work with no gloves too. Work enough and your hands get so tough gloves no longer matter. Most splinters and briars can't even pierce my skin on my hands now.

Typically I don't wear gloves. Only when I'm welding, working on barbed wire fence, or handing hot/sharp metal.

For most all other stuff I go bare handed.

I get whatever gloves are cheap since I typically lose them before I wear them out.

What brands do you get? I killed off a pair of Nighthawks and a pair Carhartts in 4 days of fencing and will go through several more pairs during the hay season, so I am looking for more durable types. Cost is not an issue, my dad works at a hardware store so I can get a good price on any brand.

Typically I use jersey gloves from TSC, especially when I am stackin hay, partly cuz I am allergic. If I am doing heavier work like fencing, I go with some nice leather gloves with full grain.

Carhartt makes somes of the most comfortable gloves Ive ever worn. I use them when splitting cords of wood, and its a godsend. So many out there use very rigid fabric, or dont seam around the joints well. I will have to look for a part number on em... I need some new ones. I always tear up the left hand way before the right (holding the log with that hand).

I wear Wells Lamont full grain leather cowhide gloves when I ride and do other work, very durable and comfortable and they smell amazing.

My gloves last about half a year they are some gloves my dad gets at the swap meet for like $1 a pair. Thats going through fencing, loading trucks, scrap metal and more. Although they aren't the best for comfort they are good enough for me. I had a pair of leather Cowhides that lasted me about the same time but they were like $20 and they didn't held up well with the scrap metaling.

Mechanix fastfit gloves are excellent shooting gloves, for those of us in the military. Otherwise, their M-PACT ones work pretty good for chopping wood and working on my vehicles.

Hmm, I seem to have lost my other gloves. So I just went and bought a pair from Home Depot. http://m.homedepot.com/p/Firm-Grip-G...-06/100581002/

They're pretty heavy material. I think they will hold up well.
