For those who wear Mechanics gloves, (not the oil proof latex or rubber gloves). When doing repair work I use Mechanix brand gloves. They come on sale regularly and are comfortable when working with tools. If you use them for yard work however they tend to get abraided quickly and the finger tips rip open. (Then you can use them as driving gloves! LOL ). Which brand do you recommend?

I also use Mechanix gloves. Will be watching this for good alternatives.

I find they are terrific for things like helping people move also. Really saves your hands.

For yard work and anything i need a glove for..there are orange and black calfskin glove at harbor freight that seem to last me a very long time. I cant find them on the website. I think they were $3 a pair.

For working on cars i only use nitrile.

Me too. I love the regular Mechanix Gloves. I have a few pair in varying degrees of dirtyness for different types of jobs.

I've got a bunch of Mechanix gloves. If the job is messy I'll throw some latex over top of them.

I have only one pair Mechanix Original, and the finger tips have holes over the years. Wanted to buy another pair or two. Where do you usually find sales for the gloves?

I've had my reds from HF for 4 years now.

Their blues are cheaper and nice as well.

Years ago, they were always 19.99. I see them in auto parts stores usually for 11 dollars and sometimes as low as 9.99. Sometimes I even find them on Ebay for even less.

Any color and size you want and free shipping.

I like the Hardy brand from HF. However, I'm a weekend warrior. Not sure how they would work for everyday use.

I gave up on those gloves for auto work. Can't grab any small items. I like latex (the heavy duty ones that don't tear)and I'm not allergic to it. I like the HF nitrites too.

Nitrile, nitrile-coated (new favorite), or traditional mechanics gloves.

Nitrile for most dirty/oily work. Nitrile-coated (Ansell HyFlex, ATG Maxiflex) for heavier work, but less oil. Traditional mechanics gloves for the heaviest work minimal oil... knuckle saving, hammering, grinding.
