Traffi glove makes some great gloves, perfect for metal detecting. They arent water proof but they are rubberised on the palm and fingers sides so are very good for most sites and conditions.

The red ones are best, there are two versions, "nimble" and "agile" not much difference between the two in my own experience. The size 9's will fit most mens average size hands.
Thanks for the recommendation Jordan. I've bought a pair of Nitric 1, which have a nitrile-coated palm and finger tips.
I also bought a pair of Hydric 1, which are waterproof, with a LiquiDex coating.
They'll be great.

Red Traffi gloves are brilliant and last for ages before the finger tips eventually wear out.
They are lightweight and allow good control of your machine .
Now using a green pair but not as good as the red ones .

Keeping the hands dry with plenty of freedom for the fingers is the key. Tight gloves restrict blood flow so try and avoid them. A couple of them 99p throw away hand warmers on the wrists for really low temps will warm the blood before it flows into the hands.
I use these thermal ones on winter mornings. Plenty of room for the fingers which traps warm air and they stay nice and dry. Around mid morning they normally come off for a tad as they get bit warm

I've never worn gloves, except on the coldest of days in the winter and then I wear leather fingerless gloves. gloves have become a detecting ''must have'' over the years but I prefer to not wear them. they just get in my way and are useless at the best of times. waste of money in my opinion. ;;z ::g

These days I use MineLab gloves. Be wary of sizing before buying and the price differences.
I'd seen them on a YouTube video where the detectorist was picking up broken glass, clambering over rocks and getting away with rough treatment (the gloves I mean) by having a hard material in the area around the palm. They also dry much quicker than other things I have and are breathable without being cold in EU weather. You can chuck them in the spin wash at 30deg and they wont die..

I've worn mine over 200hrs detecting, days worth of saltwater mudlarking, shooting, rock climbing and they are still brand new condition.

pros: tough, go on forever, if it's really cold they will accommodate a thin cloth inner glove
cons: not as dexterous as pretty much everything else but it's not essential for our interest. too expensive

Used the Aldi gloves today I can confirm they are the tops !! hands warm as toast and not too thick with full finger nitrile protection for dry fingers only £2.99, I got 4 pairs (greedy), if my hands are cold I can't focus .It was so cold in the wind that I used an old thick balaclava for my head, worked brill on the open windswept beach. As they say no such think as poor weather just poor clothing !! you won't go far wrong with the Aldi gloves for winter detecting .

Dive shops sell thin neoprene diving gloves reinforced with kevlar so you don't get cut...they are really toasty and don't restrict movement or blood flow at all...I have been using a pair for beach tecting for 2 years now without issue.
Can't remember the make but they're not hard to get ahold of.

Hi all. I just bought some new gloves from Screwfix called Site Siberian. They're nitrile sandy finish 82%, Acrylic 9% and Nylon 9%

You can get them in sizes 9 or 10. The 9's fit me absolutely fine but I haven't got big hands. There's a few reviews on Screwfix's site . They're not going to be too good for fine detail work but I'm hoping they'll keep my hands warm for a 6-8 hour detecting session.

Thermal lined and cost £5.99. I will review them after testing on Sunday.

imo you cant beat these mate, warm,waterproof,breathable and not too thick that you cant feel what your doing. 1 pair has lasted me over a year.

wouldnt be without these now

cheers neil.

I also got myself a pair of these on Moles' recommendation, and they are brilliant! Super grippy, tough, well-fitting and with plenty of feeling for small items. If a Mole recommends a pair of gloves - ya gotta try em! Shop around for better pricing on shipping though - you can get these from loads of online shops. Cheers for the top tip!
I've done the 'buckle boogie', the 'musket-ball mambo' and even the 'silver shuffle', but sadly still no 'gold dance'. You're really gonna know it when you see it though!

Over the past year I have been trying out many types of glove in the search for a decent detecting glove. The problem I have found with most gloves are that they have no "feel" but I think that has all changed now, with the Wilko Multi purpose glove, and at just £2.25 a pair they are a bargain too. Nice soft elastic wristband, soft rubber with extra grip ridges, these are proving to be very nice out in the field, so good infact, that I have now bought three pairs for my kit bag.
And as you will see from my picture, I have given them a Bargeman 4 star rating. ::g

If the gloves you use are a bit thicker, making it hard to feel the buttons on the control box, try these self-adhesive rubber drawer stops on the cover. This pic is from my Equinox, but it works on other detectors (I previously used this on my CTX and Deus).
