    Multiple bags with similar loadout depending on whether i need a backpack or sling bag.

    Leather rappelling gloves in one, nomex/leather gloves in one, hard knuckle gloves in another. Leather work gloves in my Bushcraft bag.

    Blauer Squall - good quality, waterproof, good insulation, and acceptable tactile coordination.

    These are better and have replaced anything else I’ve owned. I’ve built miles of fence, including woven wire, barbed wire, high tensile, etc. and these gloves have held up like no other. Around $20, lightweight, flexible and easily my favorite.

    Stanley fingerless work gloves.

    They're grippy enough to hold my cane, which the mechanix ones aren't, nor are most non-work gloves. They seem to held up for around 3 years of everyday wear through winter and occasional wear the rest of the year

    I don't carry a pair of gloves in my EDC pack: I work in an office and have little need for them often enough to justify them. I do however keep a couple pair in my truck. In my truck's tool bag I have a pair of Mechanix knock-offs, and in my Emergency bag I have a pair of pigskin work gloves, both by Hardy from Harbor Freight. They're cheap, but good enough for what I need them for. I've used the pigskins to move wood at my cabin and pick things out of the fire, and the knock-off mechanix for working on my truck when I need more dexterity than the pigskins allow.

    I also keep several pair of the Hardy mechanix knock-offs around my house so that a pair are always nearby. One pair in my utility cabinet, one pair in my shop, and so on. I do have one pair of legitimate Mechanix gloves in my garage toolbox, and they're great, but the Hardys are one-fifth the price and do just as well. I also keep a box of nitrile gloves at my toolbox (and another in my utility cabinet) for work with solvents, greases, oils, etc. that I don't want to get on my hands or have soaked into my gloves.

    I find pigskins are best for heavy work, like up at my cabin running the chainsaw, swinging an axe, digging holes, etc.
    I find mechanix-style gloves better for lighter-duty work, hot work (engines, exhaust, etc.) and especially work where you need more dexterity than the pigskins allow.

    I started carrying 8 mil disposable nitrite gloves in my bag. I bought some to use while working under the car and I found myself washing and reusing them because they are so tough.

    Mechanix M-Pact in coyote. Previously, I preferred to catch pythons and monitor lizards bare-handed as they tend to be slippery when wet (which they usually are) but I was pleasantly surprised with the traction. That said, I no longer really carry them in my bag as they have that permanent python stench now. I either leave them in my truck or I attach a carabiner to my belt and dangle them from it.

    I EDC a pair of Mechanix Winter FastFit Insulated Gloves for work (not so much right now, as I'm on the paid furlough scheme at the moment), and occasional casual use, and currently, due to the bastard bug, five pairs of nitrile texturised gloves in a belt pouch (Five to cover every eventuality, on a just in case basis). I also EDC a small bottle of hand sanitiser gel, due to the bastard bug.

    I rely on the Full Dexterity glove from PIG. Amazon have them listed at this link. You can tie your shoelaces with these on so that's a sign you really can do dexterous things while protecting your hands. Washable too - just throw them in the wash with your clothes and hang dry. Leather/suede is tough...

    Harbor freight cheap-os. My shop pair gets grungy I just toss them and rotate the pair our of my bag.

    Had higher priced ones and couldn't tell enough difference to justify the price difference. Welding, grinding, sharp objects put the same holes in them and since I use up about a pair a month I'm not spending $20+.

    "Upgraded" my nitrile gloves from standard to extra strong ones (they are thicker in material = less likely to rip).
