The move seems to be Mechanix gloves.

I've been using these to great success.

I still do bar/nightclub work, I usually wear a pair of leather sap gloves or a pair of the soft knuckle gloves from Line Of Fire. I also have used Hatch brand gloves with hard knuckles, but every pair of hatch gloves I have owned has not stood up to more than a couple months of constant use. I highly recommend Line Of Fire, I know the Sentry and Operator series are a little more pricey, but they do have some more affordable options that have a pretty high level of cut protection. Mechanix makes a pair of covert tactical gloves that are becoming more and more popular. These Mechanix gloves have become popular due to their affordability, and the "normal" look they have to them, no shaped knuckles or anything that could contribute to the "intimidating" glove style some companies don't allow.

  1. If you are planning on buying one specifically for the event, a generic mil-surp ruck will handle your first few challenges. I would avoid frame packs, as challenges can be pretty awkward if you can trying to wrestle around a metal frame during PT.
    Another option is to ask around inside of the Facebook group for your event. There might be an alumni willing to loan you a spare ruck.

  2. Your ruck and bricks are usually the least unpleasant aspect of what you'll be carrying around. I'd focus on getting as strong as possible at your current bodyweight, instead of cutting weight (and strength, and endurance) to be allowed to carry fewer bricks. If keeping the 5 pounds makes you more capable of lugging around a water can, log, chunk of sidewalk, buddy, etc... that's the way to go.

  3. Regular old Mechanix gloves have served me very well, and are pretty cheap. If I know the area is really sandy (and likely to work its way in to the velcro and open up the glove), I've been known to throw a strip of electrical tape around my wrist to just strap the things on for the challenge.

  4. The dedicated training plans on the site are quite good (so is Military Athlete, though not free - http://militaryathlete.com/page.php?page_ID=12&cart_category_ID=54), but just following as much of http://training.goruck.com as possible is my recommendation. A lot of effort goes in to their programming.
    A 40# sandbag can function as half the gear you need for a basic fitness program at home.

For non-cold weather wear I like my Mechanix gloves for just about everything.

Solid choice of gear. You'll probably regret those fingerless gloves when you get in the fingernail though. Hurts like hell. What I see a lot of people do is get something like Mechanix and just cut off the ends of the index finger and thumb, as that's really all you need. I just use Mechanix M-pacts and have no problems doing whatever I need to.

Yes, a One Tigris will fit much more comfortably than a mesh mask. What you can do, though, is bend the mesh to fit better. You can also take off the cloth on the edges (Heat it to melt glue, then peel it off), and cut the mesh to fit better, then glue the cloth back on.

Yeah. I've been using Mechanix for yard work and other random projects for years. The last pair lasted over two years -

To add onto this since you have no gear:

Buy one of these batteries: http://www.evike.com/products/52945/

One of these smart chargers: http://www.evike.com/products/61888/ (it is definitely worth the money to not fry a battery)

Some gloves like these: http://www.amazon.com/Mechanix-Wear-Tactical-Original-Covert/dp/B0001VNZUA/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1462666524&sr=1-1&keywords=mechanix

A lower face mesh like this: http://www.evike.com/products/33666/

Some ANSI z87.1 goggles from basically anywhere or a painball mask to substitute for those and the face mesh

And that should be enough to get started

I used these back when I was a security guard. Used them because I touched a lot of doorknobs and gates on patrol and my hands would get nasty and gross.

Weren't too hot in the summer and kept my hands warm enough in the winter, but I was still able to do things pretty much normal such as riffling through a key ring for the right key and whatnot.

The only issue I had with them is the velcro would blow out after a few months, but that's only because I was constantly taking them off and on in between patrols every hour. Don't imagine that would be an issue under normal use.

u/DieRunning · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I could use these Mechanix gloves because I have a lot of work to do on my car and they can make things a lot more pleasant.

I'm not sure what the relevance of Goodbye Eleven is, but I'm willing to say it just for you.
