I bought these gloves about a weekago. I work in a garage that specializes in tire installations etc...I thought these would be perfect. They fit great. I could type wearing them...lugnuts were no problem. The problem is they wore away on the fingers where i grip things. I'm very surprised the rest of the glove looks brand new. I tried the other mechanix gloves with the padded palms but those are just slightly too bulky, which is unfortunate. Imight try these again but im very leery about them wearing away again.. I might just cut away the fingers, but that seems like a waste to me. Oh well I suppose these gloves would be excellent for things such as raking, maybe gardening, or maybe engine work. But my overall impression it's a very good fitting, tight, workable glove, just don't work them too hard!

First go to Mechanix website and print off the size chart and buy the right size. I have been buying too big of gloves for too long because I thought I had manly large hands...well I only have medium manly hands. I didn't believe the chart so went to a home store tried on the Mechanix gloves in medium and they fit 100 x better than the large.

I bought the Camo, all black (stealth) and the coyote of these Mechanix gloves so I can be tacticool!

I use them at the shooting range, I use them on cold days as driving gloves. None of the home stores around had the 3 tacticool colors, plus they are cheaper on amazon.com.

Now only if they made a pair in multi-cam so when the zombies come at me, they think to themselves...man that guy is all geared out and really cool looking. Then I place one between their eyes due to my awesome weapon control because I am wearing these cool gloves. Plus these gloves will keep your hands clean so when you rescue that hotty from being eaten you can take your gloves off and shake her hand and not worry about giving her cooties.

I never liked wearing gloves when working on my car because I can't feel what i am doing. Ever since I tried this glove out, I have never worked without it. It fits my hand snugly, I can feel what I am doing and have protected my hand from numerous cuts and bruises.

These gloves are very comfortable and allow better use of fingers for fine tasks. They feel like a pair of fine driving gloves (as one user with the same complaint put it), but their advertising implies that they are for doing real work. The thin, soft, leather wears out very quickly when used where there is any significant friction or abrasion (e.g., handling firewood, shoveling dirt or gravel, handling a loaded wheelbarrow, picking up rocks, etc.). They are fine with smooth-handled tools, like polished metal or fiberglass, but wear out quickly when used with smooth, but weathered, wooden handled tools, for example. I will buy a replacement pair, but will be more selective about what I use them for.

I used to use the leather palm type of gloves for working (mechanic), they would start to get dirty and greasy, at which point I would figure they wouldn't last much longer. Once that point was reached I would not be careful about keeping them clean. Soon after that, they would get saturated with grease, or get a hole rendering them worthless.

These are a synthetic leather and seem to last forever. I've welded in them, got them super greasy then wiped them off, then continued using and abusing them. I bought another pair to replace them thinking they would get a hole pretty soon. That second pair is still sitting in my tool box unused. The first pair is about 2 years old now, but I don't use them every day. Only when I need the cushioning or splinter protection.

So the advantages are, paying a more now for these compared to buying multiple leather pairs. Much better dexterity and feel compared to the leather. Easy on and off. I've even had leather ones give me sort of a hand fungus (jock itch of the hand?).

Disadvantages, number one is cost. But if you look, you can find them for [...] bucks. They're not made for welding, so don't pick up something hot. I burned a pin hole in one of the fingers accidently touching the mig wire. Don't get the camo ones. If you leave them sitting somewhere, they'll camoflouge themselves, and get easily lost. My first pair I got blue, second bright yellow.

These gloves dod a great job as a motorcycle glove, especially in summer. They are machine washable, super comfortable and allow adequate dexterity for buttons and switches.

Love the "Original" model, have owned some for a while, pretty much good for anything. Not the most durable gloves out there but solid for the price. I buy them to fit tight so that I keep as much dexterity in the fingers as possible.

Just received two new pairs from Amazon, one coyote (tan), one black. The black ones aren't the originals I know and love. The packaging still said "Original" with the correct model number and all but they've been redesigned. The material that covers the palm and fingers feels more stretchy, resulting in a slightly looser fit. The rubber velcro closer is also different, bigger and more ridiculous, which results in the gloves not sliding as easily in and out of pockets. An "ID" area has been added to the closer as well, where you could write a few characters, maybe initials or a number, tho I'd wager anything written there will rub off after a little use. Overall, pretty disappointed with the redesign. I'll try to post pictures.

I'd suggest if you love these gloves head to a local automotive store and buy up the original "Original" models before they disappear.

I had a pair of these (not the stealth style) and lost one of them so when I saw Amazon selling them for only 20 bucks I grabbed them.

They have excellent grip, are very comfortable and they look really cool. I use them for work, but I also use them sometimes for driving because they have such great grip. Mechanix makes great products - very high quality.

Ok, just ignore that $75 list price. Either that's a misprint or someone ingested a controlled substance while typing. These gloves might save you some scraped knuckles or worse while exercising your inner mechanic. They sell just about everywhere for around 20 bucks and they are both functional and add a layer of safety to your project. Wait until they are on special at $15 on Amazon and you'll save both your knuckles and your wallet.

I am the assistant manager of a smallish, but very busy grocery store. I am constantly stocking, cleaning, ordering and spending time in the freezer and cooler.

For years I have been searching for gloves that let me have a reasonable amount of dexterity, do a good job protecting my hands and don't wear out in a week or two. After reading all the great reviews I thought the Mechanix gloves were a "can't miss."

I am sad to say that just like all the other gloves I have tried, the Mechanix gloves had holes in the fingers after the first couple of weeks. I have stitched them up, so maybe I can get another week or two out of them, but the bang for the buck is terrible compared to all the other "disposable" gloves I have purchased for $2-3 a pair and would last at least a week.

The bottom line for my experience was great functionality, but horrible durability. I am hard pressed to imagine that the folks that are getting months or years out of their Mechanix gloves are actually wearing them for hard use 40-50 hours every week like I am.
