This is a big subject and sure to be interesting to all i think theres summer gloves, winter gloves,and possibly gloves for very hot/cold days i tend to try and find gloves for outdoor work use mainly for proffessional gardeners or greenkeepers like myself i am currently using a pair of timberland gloves very tough lightweight and puncture resistant ? About £15 but they will last winter time i use thinsulate style gloves but these dont last much more than a season but they are warm and cheap enough

Nite Star Nitrile Dipped Gloves - B-Click 2000

These are the type of gloves I tend to wear. They fit really well allowing you to find those small fragments and handle the finds easily. They last about 5 - 8 digs and are easy to rinse through.

Cost £1.50 each from my local safety shop, maybe able to source them cheaper...

I ware gloves because of the glass and deseases in the ground, I use cheap gardening gloves from Sainsburys in the summer, get the women's ones as they are a tighter fit. In the wet or winter I use thin diving gloves

I bought a pair of Irwin gloves a few years ago from B&Q they survived two years as a mechanic, a few years of gardening a bit of bricklaying and bonfire building and now I use them for metal detecting they are coping very well even with washing after every use. If im to get a new pair I know which ill be buying again

Trouble with ordering gloves online is everybody's hands are different and cannot be exactly the same as the standard on which the original design was based. If you have big hands you'll probably order XL or XXL, but who knows what those sizes mean? It varies significantly from one manufacturer to another. I've ordered gloves online before and found the thumb or some other finger is too long or too short and I then have 20 pairs of useless gloves. So maybe go to B & Q or anybody else who sells work gloves and try them on before buying.

What is the main purpose of the gloves - to keep your hands clean, or to protect you from possible injury from sharp objects or from potential infection? Probably mostly the latter, in which case you get some tough gardening or builder's gloves, but then you lose the feeling for whatever is in the clod of earth you're breaking up.

I must be bored - should be out digging instead of writing this twaddle - anyway my compromise is either to go commando or to wear a double layer of the cheap latex disposable surgical gloves that cost pennies to buy, which keep your hands clean for a while but still let you feel what you're handling. It's really a question of finding gloves that give you an acceptable compromise between safety and sensitivity.

I've tried all sorts of gloves but I like to have them tight on my hands so I can feel what I'm holding, I have to say I'm now using a pair of wetsuit gloves, I have found them tight so I can feel what I'm holding and comfortable for long periods, non sweaty and very durable, they also keep my hands clean and dry even in sticky wet mud

Just another thought - as a golfer, I regularly buy new gloves as the old ones wear out,
but golf gloves are generally good quality, kid leather which allow the skin to breathe , are tight fitting and give you complete sensitivity. The gloves tend to wear out on the palms, but the fingers are still good. Probably of no interest whatsoever, but if there are other golfers on here, maybe we've found a new use for worn out golf gloves :)
