    While I still think these are great gloves, they are not as good as they were just a few months ago. The new design has replaced the rubber grips on the thumb an forefinger with what feels like vinyl. It is not as flexible nor has as good a grip. The rest of the glove seems OK, but not as tactile. They no longer come in a clear vinyl pouch either. This looks like a cost-cutting redesign.

    The previous design was fairly priced at $20, and a real bargain at the occasional $10 sale price. This design is worth about the $10 sale price. I would not buy them for $20.

    I agree, they’re glove designs just keep getting worse, I liked the one’s that are 2 versions old now. I really don’t like the heavier back on these it makes them hotter to wear. And they don’t handle being wet as well, but none of the craftsman gloves I’ve had have ever done well when wet.

    I think the last design was the best. It added the rubber grips to the thumb and forefinger. Prior to that, they would wear out prematurely when I wore holes in them turning nuts and bolts. The rubber grips greatly extended their useful life.

    I can’t speak to their performance when wet as I don’t use them in wet locations, but to be fair I kind of doubt wet performance was in the design spec for any version.

    I work in the staging industry, and would use them for focusing lights, the bodies of them can be a couple hundred degrees if they’re left on for any period of time. Anyway they would protect my hands from the heat, while still allowing me to keep some manual dexterity. But when they started adding the grips, lets just say they made a funny smell as they burned off and left some nice marking on the lights. And then when loading/unloading the trucks they would get wet if the weather was bad, and it just soaks right through the gloves and turns hands into prunes.

    The older gloves the other posts seem to favor were made in Vietnam, these new ones come from Indonesia. I don’t know if that makes a difference or not as it’s Mechanix Gloves that calls the shots, being the actual manufacturer. Personally, I liked the original gloves that came out in the 90’s. Two colors, red or black, no fancy designs or finger grips. Wet performance? I don’t know of any work glove not made of rubber that will stand up to water very long.
