We’ve written about gloves with impact protection and even gloves with lights on the fingers, but they all seem kinda gimmicky to us. Realizing that we — like you, probably — do more than just work on the car, what’s your favorite shop glove
Maybe I should be a little more specific: by “shop glove,” I mean gloves other than the classic “work glove” — which is great, but doesn’t offer anywhere near enough dexterity for most smaller work.
Right now, we seem to favor the one pictured above — Mechanix’ “original.” We’ve worn out three pairs over the last few months, but I’m glad to say that it’s the gloves that are worn out and not our hands. The Mechanix gloves seem to offer a nice balance between durability and dexterity, though they are a little pricey.
But we haven’t tried ’em all. I suppose what we should really do is put together a test. Let us know your favorites in comments, and we’ll schedule a test of as many of ’em as we can find.
