Leather is good unless you need to be really warm........ which in CT there is potential for........... I would find something that will keep you warm, but would also allow you to utilize your equipment without removing them.......... I have a few pairs of mittens which allow you to flip them off the fingers so you can use the fingers (shooting, fire starting, etc.) so it is all user preference...........

ah another good suggestion in the design and not so much material aspect!


any companies to steer towards or just head down to the local Harbor Freight/Hardware store and grab gloves?

Mechanics gloves work great for all round general purpose use. You can get some that are lined too.

They are durable enough and give you good finger dexterity.

I wear the stretch knit string cotton (roper) or (meat cutter) gloves year round. I can pickup small screws, wear them when installing glass panes or picking up broken glass, wear them when shooting in the winter. In the winter I wear 2 pr. or a pr. inside winter gloves. I have worn nitrile gloves over them for water/wind proofing. About the only time I wear leather gloves is when working with barb wire. The cotton gloves are about $1.00/pr.
I would suggest several pr. of the stretch cotton and nitrile gloves in your BOB

Oakley has great tactical gloves and IMO ones with knuckles are worth every penny.

If you're looking for a cheaper tactical brand I would suggest Hatch. I've had several of there gloves and never had any complains (besides the fact a few pairs magically disappeared from me at numerous bases across the us.)

Im thinking that a pair of gloves should be in our GHB/BOB - what gloves do you all have in your packs?
If your plans include campfire cooking you'll want to include a pair of leather gloves in your kit to protect against hot pots and firewood splinters.

ive been PM'd and told to look at Mechanix for gloves - any experience with those gloves guys?
I carry a set of those for hiking, they are excellent aginst all that brush you walk through, and no impairment to weapon use.
And a set of workgloves in the buttpack.

Mechanix for me too. Plus in the winter I keep some polartec glove liners.

From what I've seen, a lot of military personnel are using mechanix. I don't know if they're issued or not though.
