Gloves - Not Motorcycle Type

I am one of those older die heart Saturday mechanics that never wore work gloves while working on my motorcycle or cage. Does anyone have a preference on a type of work glove? Also, how do they work for you (do they get in the way of anything)?
I figure yard work would be a complete different type of glove (?).
What about a good general glove for doing honey do items like moving furniture, etc.?
Thanks in advance! Sorry for all the scrambled questions.

Re: Gloves - Not Motorcycle Type

I use goat skin gloves for work. They stay soft after being wet and then dry. Just as tough as leather in my opinion and fit my hand better. I can pick up a welding rod off the concrete floor with them on. Had to order them from Amazon, home depot quit carrying them.

Look for "stanly leather for weather" or any goat skin glove.

Why am I here and what day is it??

Re: Gloves - Not Motorcycle Type

Are these what you are talking about?

For $5.00 a pair, you cannot go wrong with ordering a couple of sets.

I also ran across these and wonder what the difference would be except for price:

Thanks for the link.

Re: Gloves - Not Motorcycle Type

yes to the first pair.

For me the second pair would not work for welding or cutting. The sparks go right through those sucker!!!

Re: Gloves - Not Motorcycle Type

I prefer to wear gloves when working with my hands, but sometimes the loss of dexterity gets in the way. I seldom wear gloves when doing mechanical work as a lot of that requires the greater dexterity (other than things like rotating tires on the cars).

I like deerskin gloves for yard work. They're tough and flexible.
For general work, I use these.

Nothing fancy, but a good compromise between protection and dexterity.
