    i really the like mechanix gloves but i go through them to fast for how much they cost and i can't stand the big leather gloves (hard to put on lugnuts with them, i work at a tire store) is there a glove out there that is tight fitting and also last a while? now i haven't tried the m-pact gloves yet do you think they will last a little bit longer??

    I have had M-pacts for a while and use them for working and riding. And I beleive they have a lifetime warranty or at least one year. I don't know where you go but where I work we trade out these things all the time. But they sure are comfortable.

    Have you tried a pair of goat skin leather work gloves? They last as long as the heavy cowhide ones do for me and are much thinner and more flexable too.

    Ask for TIG gloves at the welding supply place near you.

    I rarely use gloves, unless I'm welding.../forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    go to a dirt bike shop and get some riding gloves. that is what i use. they are similar to the mechanics but last longer.

    I've bought mine at Home Depot. The leather part of them is white colored. If they have their cheap line they were under $5.00 a pair. I use the cloth gauntlet style as they're easier to pull on and off.
