A little late to the party, but I've used those nitrile gloves, and sweating in them was all I did, and the nasty stank that resulted wasn't my idea of "Fresh as a Daisy"!
All I wear is leather gloves, and even though I wear the fingers out, bc for some reason, the manufacturers think that only men wear leather gloves, so my fingers are too short for them, they work the best for me! Also, speaking from the point of view where a 40lb patio block "fell" on top of my hand, earlier in the season (don't ask
), leather gloves are all I wear! I wound up with bruises and contusions to the ligaments on the top of my hand, but those gloves, and the fact that my hand was on a surface of pea gravel that absorbed the shock, saved my hands from a worse fate! Now if I could find leather gloves that have a warm lining of some sort for the colder Spring and Fall months! Any recommendations, gang?
