    Just a well broken in pair of wells lamont deer hide leather work gloves. I like to buy them one size too small soak them in water and stretch them to get them nice and fitted for a tactile grip.

    also in the last couple of years I have started carrying two or three pair of heavyweight disposable gloves just for when I need to deal with a super greasy situation, chemicals or a medical issue.

    I’m at an age where anything that I hit into bruises me and I also cut easily. Combine these things with anticoagulant drugs and I’m a mess. I got some Amazon rubber palmed nylon work gloves. At 12 for twenty bucks, they are a lot cheaper than all the band-aids I was going through.

    A couple comments on gloves.

    First, I am of the firm belief that gloves are an essential, critical even, element of EDC. Everyone should have a pair of gloves in their pack, in their vehicles, several pairs at home and work. Gloves are cheap...hands and fingers are not. Just a simple day out excursion can turn into a nightmare without a pair of gloves. (flat tire in winter, etc.)

    Second, brand wise, I usually pick up a few cheap pairs of light gloves. Mechanix are fine but a little expensive. I like the easy-on kind (not the kind with the velcro closures). For gloves I usually opt for Hi-Viz colors because here on the ranch I'm usually working around heavy equipment and I want people to see my hands (when I'm not operating the equipment myself).

    And just on a side note, I usually keep a Hi-Viz hat and vest in all my vehicles too, just in case I'm having to get out and do something on the side of the road, I want people to see me from a ways away. I recommend this for everyone. It can never hurt to be more visible (except for maybe bow hunting or something).

    I like hi viz but only because when I sit them down or they fall out of my pocket I can find them easier. On the farm 99.99% of the time I'm alone so somebody else seeing my hands aint a worry I have.

    Only thing I hate is how easily/fast they stain up.

    Mechanix most of the time or an old pair of Condor. They are both tactical style vs rawhide/tough. Enough to protect my hands, give me grip and keep them slightly warm if needed.
