    How bout it y'all? I carry a pair of light duty gloves with me always. Yes there are med gloves in FAK and glove liners for when it's cold to wear under the light duty pair. They are mainly for the sudden need for some protection, as in grabbing a bit of wood or some geocaching treks. I have put them on for hiking through rugged terrain to protect from briars or sharp boulders. My last pair were Ironclad Tac-Ops, which I sliced the thumb open with a side grinder. Really glad I did because my thumb escaped with minimal damage. These have been replaced with Ironclad ExoTac Grip Glove. They fit well, but not as tight in the finger as the Tac-Ops, and I'm not really fond of the silicone grip (may melt during hot grip conditions) that is super shiny at the moment. What are your current light duty gloves that have been awesome for anything not requiring a double leather palm?
     
  2. I switch between Mechanix Original and Mechanix M-Pact, both coyote. Ideal for light bushcraft, the color doesn't mark easily.

    I have quite a few pair of gloves. But in my EDC bag I have Blackhawk light duty gloves. In my GHB I have camelback winter gloves and a pair of Oakley impact gloves. At work I have Mechanix Original. I am sure I have more that I am forgetting. Most were issued while I was on active duty with Navy Combat Camera.

    Mechanix Original and lined jersey cotton gloves. I really dislike driving with cold hands.

    Monkey-Grip (or is it Gorilla-Grip?). Cheap. About $4/pair. Use them at work every day.

    Thanks for the options. I'll be checking them out and testing these ExoTac in the meantime.

    I usually have several pairs of Mechanix FastFit within easy reach - usually a pair in my truck, a pair in my tool bag, etc. They wear out after about 3-6 months, but they're relatively cheap if you buy them in bulk from someplace like Northern Tool.

    I lost the end of my middle finger on my off hand a few years ago and Mechanixs are the only gloves that seem to fit well for me.

    IronClad Heavy Duty Gloves. The only glove that I found that stands up to the harsh environment that I work in.

    Daily? Air Liquide leather welding gloves. Kinda have to have them for my job. LOL

    In my truck and around the house I have various types of Mechanix gloves. Some fast fits, some velcro cuffed etc.

    I also keep boxes of nitrile gloves handy at home. I use them for messy food prep (applying bbq rub etc) so I don't have wash my hands, mechanical work when Mechanix are too bulky and when using solvents etc. Of course there's plenty of them in each first aid kit.

    Mechanix M-Pact black in my EDC bag - size small (US 8, Europe 7) fit tight, I like their knuckle protection and touchscreen compatibility.
    BTW: If Mechanix (or any other manufacturer) would make a similar pair with cut resistance I would switch in a second. Any suggestions?

    Cheap pair of standard working gloves (leather) in my car - for when things get dirty like tire change, motor work, etc.

    Medical nitrile gloves: one pair in my pants pocket, 1 pair in my trauma kit, plus 2 pairs in my IFAK.

    What I'm missing right now is a solid pair of winter gloves - or glove liners. But that's something for another thread.
