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!

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.

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 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.

These gloves may be good for the occasional diy wannabe mechanic or for a person not wanting to get their hands dirty. It took about a dozen pair of these gloves over the past years to finally realize they just suck for working.

They look and feel nice, and the "Mechanix" brand seemed to specialized in automotive use. These are just nothing more than thin cotton textile gloves. They have some suede like cloth on the palm, but it doesnt last.
Ive owned several of these originals, and a few of their padded expensive ones, and they always manage to rip and wear out after a short time. Im not even a mechanic, im just a guy who likes to work on cars, bikes, and do occasional house work. The seams start to tear after a couple of uses or so. My father also rips through these gloves. He's constantly working on his diesel rig, and I always see ripped and worn out Mechanix gloves all over the garage.

I kept buying them because they looked and felt nicer than the other brands of work gloves. I thought Mechanix was on top of their game. However, these gloves are a little tougher than standard gloves, but I still think rawhide work gloves outlast them.
For heavy duty macho work, I recommend using nitrile coated work gloves. Theyre the cheap cloth gloves that have a rubber coating on the palms. These gloves usually cost no more than several bucks and do not wear out on the palm like Mechanix's gloves.
