They appear to be very popular these days. Never worn them since I began working on vehicles when I was a teenager.

Anyone have a good recommendation on a pair that works best at turning nuts and bolts? Would prefer to stay away from latex and others that offer less protection from busted knuckles.

TIA

I have never found any that don't cause some sort of loss of dexterity. I have found it easier to just keep getting dirty. Maybe I just haven't found the right ones yet.... I do use mechanics gloves for doing yard work though.

I found these at Walmart and their the best gloves I’ve ever used. Their not as thick as far as protection but you have the grip of death on anything you touch. I own probably 50 pairs of different types of work gloves but these are my new favorites...Their cheap to up

I have had good luck with the Mechanix brand at NAPA.

I wear HyFlex gloves off and on all day. Usually go through 4 pair a week. They're pretty good for disposable gloves.

Hand protection is just as important as eye and ear protection. A man really should have several pairs, use the proper glove for different applications. Bite the bullet, buy several different types. Try them on, just like shoes, if they dont fit right, you wont use them.


If the 2nd amendment was written just to include guns for hunting, why is there not an amendment to protect fishing poles?

I remember how I once thought men who complained about having a bad back were just being lazy as I made no attempt to protect my own back.

Like so many 20-somethings, I would later learn the hard way your back can be very unforgiving to misuse.
