    Any one who uses gloves have you found a decent pair that last? I realize that this line of work is rough on a pair of gloves but if I could find a pair that work great and last would be great. I have tried for expensive gloves from Kobalt. The three pack for $10 at Home Depot works pretty good and have a thick coating on the palm.

    I use the general purpose ones from home depot and I get about two weeks out of them sometime maybe three

    I really don't believe you will find any gloves that will last long because we are hard on our hands

    One driver I know will cut the fingers off when they wear though so they last longer

    I would wonder if a site that has been around for a while would already have a post or 2 about gloves.


    I wonder.

    Those are the ones many of us use. You're not going to find anything better. Two weeks is about avg time before needing to purchase a new pair. These gloves are cheap and I wouldn't pay more for something you can easy drop or misplace.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Natures gloves work just fine.

    If not a tampon might work.

    I wear nitrile gloves and the brown jersey gloves over those (2 pairs of brown when it's extra cold).

    I get 10 pairs of the generic latex coated gloves for $10. Each pair lasts about three weeks on preload. Maybe longer. I don't care if I lose one. Lose 50 cents or lose $16. They're not useful for drivers because they're too clunky for diads.
