Conductive thread is a dollar a yard on amazon.

u/HeloRising · 19 pointsr/AskMen

Steel toes are a pain but I wouldn't put my feet in anything else when there's a drop danger. They've saved my feet numerous times. You can buy steel and aluminum guards that fit over your current shoes but I wouldn't trust them as much as I do a steel toed boot.

Any boot you get is going to be uncomfortable as fuck for the first few weeks. If you get a new pair, wear them around on weekends and going out. It'll toughen your feet faster so you aren't hobbled on the job as much.

What you might be able to do is keep a pair of sandals or slip-ons with you so when you go home at night you can take the boots off and leave them off.

I would highly suggest getting some Dr Scholls Gel Inserts. They're fucking incredible. Change them out about every four to six months and you'll get a lot more out of your boots. I guarantee you will notice the difference and it will be glorious.

When you can, get a second pair and third pair of boots and rotate them every day. If you don't they're going to get fucking rank very quickly and they'll break down faster.

On a side note: if you don't have them already, get some good work gloves. They are worth their weight in gold for this kind of work and will dramatically extend how much you can lift and for how long.

u/ThePo_lice · 17 pointsr/ProtectAndServe

Just buy these. Two reasons.

  1. When you fight a crackhead and he starts bleeding and then he starts laughing and yelling “You’re going to get my AIDS now bitch!” then guess what? You throw the gloves away and you’re out $17.

  2. I have some of those big expensive “puncture-proof” gloves. Got em as a gift. Nice gloves. Problem is, you can’t feel shit with them on and you lose a significant amount of dexterity. Do they protect my hands? Absolutely. But so would boxing gloves. That’s not what you want, and it’s not what you need.
u/zxj4k3xz · 15 pointsr/airsoft

Here are a couple things I'd suggest:

Mechanix M-pact gloves. I use them and they're great. Very comfy and provide very nice padding for your hands. I was shot in the hand maybe 5 times yesterday and they left no marks. Maybe get a different color, though. They come in tan, black, woodland, black and tan, black and red, yellow. Just a bunch of different ones. I'd suggest solid black or tan as they'll go with just about anything.

One Tigris mask. Very comfy, cheap, provides all the important protection (teeth, lips, nose) while still covering your cheeks. Again, try to choose a color he might like. Solid tan, green, or black would go with most load outs.

If he doesn't have eye protection I'd suggest Pyramex I-force or Pyramex V2G-XP. I use and love both. They've taken multiple shots with no dents, scratches, or cracks, and they don't fog.

I wouldn't suggest a pistol holster if he doens't have a pistol. It's just pointless then. Besides, you really should get a holster designed for your pistol. Universal holsters are usable at best.

I wouldn't suggest a vest either. That's something the person has to decide for themselves. They might want a low profile chest rig, or a large vest to provide protection, or maybe they just want a belt to hold things.

You could also get him a Visa pre-paid gift card. I know, it doesn't feel "personal", but I can tell you they're the best gifts I ever get.

Edit: Some of the cheap things on my Krytac:

I weaved Paracord through the rails. Makes it look Oper8r as hell, and it's comfy to hold. Really cheap as well. 50ft is $6 from the store I linked. Planet Paracord also has a lot of other colors.

I also use the Strike Industries keymod handstop kit. It makes a comfortable place to hold your gun, and it's completely customizable. While Black is sold out on AirsoftGI, they still have Coyote Brown, Flat Dark Earth, Grey, and Tan

u/merreborn · 14 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've worked in the amazon affiliate business for a decade now, and I don't see an affiliate code in there (ref=sr_1_1 is not an affiliate/referral code. It's just internal amazon click tracking garbage [as are most of the other arguments] -- I believe in this case it indicates OP clicked on a internal amazon search result)

But just in case,

Problem solved.

u/DrunkBeavis · 14 pointsr/Construction

If you can't wear fingerless gloves, the next best thing are something like these. Light and breathable and not bulky so you have some dexterity.

I've never found a pair of glasses that won't fog up eventually, so just get some anti-fog wipes or some Cat Crap.

Mechanix Gloves for anyone needing to workout outside in the winter

u/chuck_stat · 11 pointsr/skiing

Getcha pair o kincos , slather some sno-seal on em, and yer dun. Ur welcome.

u/quinncuatro · 10 pointsr/Goruck

The move seems to be Mechanix gloves.

I've been using these to great success.

u/naejolrac · 9 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I love my fingerless gloves for work, I go back and forth from wiring to metal work. So slicing my hands up is common if they aren't worn.

u/_macon · 7 pointsr/skiing

Get some insulated leather gloves/mitts and coat them with SnoSeal.

Kinco makes good ones that are really cheap. Flylow makes a similar style that comes pre-coated. I have a pair of BlackDiamond spark gloves I got on sale.

Just know that whatever brand you get you'll eventually have to reseal them with SnoSeal cause it doesn't last forever.

EDIT: Here are some links:

Kinco -

Flylow -

Black Diamond -

SnoSeal -

u/of_skies_and_seas · 7 pointsr/Aquariums

Nothing short of laser treatment or removing several layers of skin will make a tattoo "wear out". Exposing a fresh tattoo to aquarium water all day is a great way to get an infection though. Get some shoulder length gloves like these before sticking your arm in the tank.

u/jaytde · 7 pointsr/simracing

I've been using Mechanix Vent gloves as they are super cheap, durable, and comfy. I believe there are quite a few here who also use these. I really like them and don't see any need to change.

u/shamarctic · 7 pointsr/Wrangler

OK dont worry you guys. I've got this. First things first, you're going to need to open up a credit card with a high limit. $30k should do to start.

  • Rubber Floor Mats. I got the Mopar ones. I might suggest Weathertech instead. If you have the unlimited, you can get mats for the back was well. I cannot find any mats for the back of my two door :(
  • Have a dog? Plan on running with the roof off? Want to prevent them from falling out? Safari Straps have your back.
  • Off Roading? I suggest some tire deflators to air down conveniently, and a portable air compressor to air back up.
  • Grab Handles are great. Here's one example, but I recommend shopping around. Theres a lot of different styles, find what you like.
  • Hi Lift Jack & Base. You'll quickly find off road that the stock jack will not get you out of a lot of situations. The base is helpful on soft surfaces (wet dirt, sand, etc).
  • Change your own damn oil! It's easy. No jack required just shimmy under there. Make sure to get an oil catcher big enough for your motor. 6-8 QTS if I recall correctly.
  • Buy a shovel. Invaluable off road
  • Recovery Strap & learn how to use it properly.
  • Mechanics Gloves. Again very helpful around the jeep.

    That should get you off to a good start. Eventually you might think about replacing the bumpers, adding a tire carrier, lifting the jeep, getting bigger wheels, adding a winch, adding a roof rack.
u/slingstone · 6 pointsr/Goruck

Mechanix FastFit Gloves. The velcro wrist strap on the regular Mechanix just gets clogged with mud/grass too easily.

u/Idiot_Savant_Tinker · 6 pointsr/bicycling

I have a pair of these gloves that I wear when riding my motorcycle.

The chain glove is a great idea though, and you can buy them, but ye cats, they're expensive.

u/CubanRalph · 6 pointsr/motorcycles
u/Prizz419 · 6 pointsr/ar15

Mechanix Wear Tactical MultiCam M-Pact
So far they are great. Easy to use a rifle with, and they fit like a glove

u/amateur_acupuncture · 6 pointsr/skiing

Most days I wear Kinco Deerskin Gloves and they are warm and durable. They suffice in most Sierra Conditions. If the deerskin gets wet, it dries supple, unlike cow leather. For storm days, I generally wear these Kincos. Both pairs get snosealed in the oven, and work pretty well.

Next time you're on the hill, look around, and chances are the Patrollers, Lift Mechanics, and other personnel who work outside will be similarly gloved. Kincos are our industry standard because they are warm, cheap, and durable. My "ski" gloves sit in a drawer collecting dust, because my Kincos are better, and I'm not worried about ruining them on the clock.

u/needsmoredragons · 6 pointsr/policeuk

Mechanix gloves, they are proper decent.

These are quality gloves which are great for police work. They provide a good amount of protection, the palms are made out of a tough synthetic leather material, this will protect your hands from getting cut up from any debris or assorted detritus you may encounter during your duties. The other benefit of this material is you can use a touch screen with it. It is also quite water resistant, unlike woolly gloves. The back of the hand is made out of a fabric material, which is very breathable in summer. On some models there is a velcro strap for them, on others there is just some elastic (personally I have the elastic ones as they are easier to get on and off). There is also a Velcro loop to help you get them on and off. They are very dexitile and easy to manipulate, unlike leather gloves. Meaning you can get your kit out easier, work zips and even do a quick initial search. They also pack away quite easily, unlike bulky leather gloves, meaning you can keep them in your tacvest or a pocket. They are quite warm in winter, but if your hands get cold just slip on a merino wool liner underneath and it will keep you warm. They do a range of models, all of which are good and fairly cheap.

Mechanix Fast Fit gloves - I like these ones. Very cheap at £13. They are the ones you can slip on and off. These are the ones I use for work.

Mechanix Original - Same as the fastfit ones, but with velcro and more expensive. The velcro can be a failure point though.

Mechaniz M-PACT - More expensive, but has extra knuckle and finger guards. Also more tacticool if that's your thing.

Sealkskinz - These are very warm glove liners. Merino wool is a lovely material, which is soft and not itch, it also wicks well and keeps you warm when wet. Wear these underneath in deepest darkest winter, they will keep you warm. Also Sealskinz is a good brand for thermals or woolly hats/gloves.

u/CBalls · 6 pointsr/Military

Mechanix Originals always served me well.

u/TemplarReflex777 · 6 pointsr/securityguards

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.

u/wiscondinavian · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I know this is kind of stupid, but I've been using work gloves instead of pot holders for a while.

Plus: they're cheap. They fit to your hand so you can have more control. They're meant for industrial use, so they should last a long time.

I can't find one on amazon, but they're somewhat between these: and the regular latex dipped work gloves.

u/schismoto · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Gentlemen of the bloody callused hand guild, I come in peace and present these gloves. I too was once a bitch-mitten hater, then I discovered the glove that works for me.

They are durable as fuck, they protect from a lot of scraping, help with grip on a greasy wrench, and still allow me to get in there and feel with my finger tips. Give them a shot!

u/bananasareoverrated · 5 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding
u/Brazensage · 5 pointsr/landscaping

If you have a harbor freight near you I would say get a few pairs of these:

If you don't, you can never go wrong with kincos. They are probably the best known company for making durable work gloves:

u/cameronabab · 5 pointsr/airsoft

You're really not gonna get a consensus on this, this is such a subjective question.

Personally, I recommend you start off with something like base level Mechanix. They're a bit cheaper than other options, are decently sturdy, and a good introduction into what you want out of combat gloves.

Those coyote ones are what I currently use and they're far far better than the 5.11 gloves I started with. The 5.11s started to fall apart after a few months and were just overall less comfortable than the Mechanix.

u/SoldierOnce · 5 pointsr/CampingandHiking

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

u/jamesvreeland · 5 pointsr/AdventureRacing
  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 -, but just following as much of 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.

A miniature sewing kit. When you’re running missions outside, clothes tend to get ripped, and with only limited numbers, life can get rough. A sewing kit helps.
Spirarcha chili sauce. If your soldier likes spicy foods, send them this. It’s spicy, it has flavor, and it will last them a few months.

Socks and underwear. Send them hiking socks and replacement pairs of underwear. Clothes tend to get gross and if they don’t have laundry, sometimes it is for the best to toss out old underclothes and wear new ones.

Beef jerky.

Trail mix of various types.

Great ideas for one-time gifts. These range from relatively cheap, to pricy and are a great surprise to a soldier stationed anywhere. I’ve included links to the products to give you an idea of what they look like, though don’t take those links as the only/cheapest place to find them:

Adjustable two-point sling. On base they have to carry around a weapon everywhere, and on mission they’ll be going some serious distance with it in their hands. If they are still using an Army-issue plain sling life is going to get a bit annoying. An adjustable two-point sling makes things more convenient and lets them ready a weapon to fire without an awkward movement on a mission. Ignore this if they are using a machine-gun, because those use heavy duty slings. Various companies make these, I prefer the VTAC, but they are all similar in make.

Surefire Earplugs. On mission, soldiers are supposed to wear earplugs, but many don’t because its uncomfortable and often all they are issued are cheap low qualifty plugs. Surefire earplugs conform to the shape of the ear and they are designed to allow someone to still be able to hear conversation level noise while protecting from high level noise. These are great.

Head-Loc helmet straps. One of the greatest pains is a helmet that won’t stay secure. The Head-Loc straps stay tighter and make the helmet so comfortable that you forget you’re wearing it.

PMAGs. Magpul plastic magazines, or PMAGs are high quality replacements for metal GI magazines. Army issued metal magazines are often used for years past the date that they should be retired and they are prone to feeding issues (I won’t get into the details) and PMAGs fix many of those issues and give a soldier more confidence in their equipment. A combat load is 7 magazines, so don’t feel the need to buy more than that, and even one or two PMAGs is greatly appreciated. Ignore if they are using a machinegun.

Head-lamp. Walking around an outpost at night is tricky and Afghanistan can get dark, a head-lamp is a great help to keep your soldier from stubbing their toe or walking into barbed wire. Get only with some kind of red or blue light filter.

Mechanix gloves. Soldiers need to wear gloves on mission and they tend to get torn up, a replacement pair of mechanixs gloves is a good choice.

u/ElMalo · 4 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

You must. If you're one of the types that gets annoyed by bulky gloves. Try a pair of nitrile gloves. They are waterproof, breathable and you can still use your phone. Perfect for wet mornings.

u/when_i_die · 3 pointsr/airsoft

To add onto this since you have no gear:

Buy one of these batteries:

One of these smart chargers: (it is definitely worth the money to not fry a battery)

Some gloves like these:

A lower face mesh like this:

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

u/xlaevis · 3 pointsr/skiing

These after applying some of this. Cheap, and it's what a lot of the on mountain staff use every day of the season.

u/imissreading · 3 pointsr/Target

I'll link a few that I've bought. I've used all of them for different things, and there are somethings I just won't use 'em for after. I'll always have a few to rotate and wash.

  • Memphis Ninja Lite N9696L - For handling produce or meats I'll try and use the stores own ordered thin/blue/black gloves. However, if I'm handling chicken that always leaks, I'll either throw 'em or put em in a plastic bag to bring back home and wash.

  • 300 INT Ice Gripster - For the freezer I'll also use the stores bought gloves.

  • CLC 125L + True Grip Heavy Duty For general working around I've used these two. I think you'd like them as they have the touch screen on 'em so you can use the devices with. I've learned not to work with freezer/produce with these because moisture in the long run fucks 'em up. Well that and moving wooden pallets all over the place.

  • Hex1 2120 - These also have the screen touch. These have been my favorite ones. A bit tight fitting on me for a large. Expensive though. Actually have been asked about them from the remodel construction crew and steritech technicians(?).

    I haven't minded paying the price for these as they've saved my hands throughout most of the shit I've handled. And I get to continue to use 'em/share 'em when doing my own work or helping others. The touch-screens I've loved a lot with the Zebra, but I try and be careful with them with moisture/sharp objects since they seem to deteriorate quite fast when not paying attention.

    There hasn't been a pair that is perfect for everything, but because I can bring these and leave 'em in a box in the back I just switch out for whatever I need at the time. Right tool for the right job.
u/Kylar_Stern · 3 pointsr/SweatyPalms

You could just get one of these to be safe, although they are a little pricey.

u/RB211 · 3 pointsr/aviation

Gloves! Something like these. The ramp is a nasty place

Or an armband badge holder thing since lanyards can be a pain in the ass if you're stooped over in the bins

u/obtix · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

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

u/eegilbert · 3 pointsr/BikeATL

I biked to work today. It was windy, but altogether a pretty pleasant ride overall. I guess I can provide a few tips.

u/Ironhead83 · 3 pointsr/Construction

I work in Minnesota/North Dakota. No doubt some of the shittiest weather in the country. Kinco have been the best gloves I've ever had. I buy 2 pairs every winter

u/hnandez · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Like everyone has said, there is no such thing as bifl gloves. I buy these quite often. There work very well and last a decent amount of time.

u/CamsX · 2 pointsr/acrl

Been using gloves since I got my T300RS, as the rubber covered wheel was a bit too harsh on my hands compared to my old G25's leather.

In the AC official forum I got recommended this Mechanix Fastfit gloves. Inexpensive, good drip and not too warm. Good enough for sim racing.

Around June I switched to the Racequip 2 layer Nomex gloves I got for Real Life track action. Much more expensive and warm than the Mechanix ones.

u/Eisenstein · 2 pointsr/AskElectronics

For scope: get a used tek on craigslist

For function generator: this kit

For iron: Hakko 888

You probably want a bench PSU as well: Korad 3005D

You need safety gear too!

u/Soloflex · 2 pointsr/woodworking

+1 Don't use them with cutting tools.

But, these are sweet.

u/doebedoe · 2 pointsr/vandwellers
  • Kreg pocket hole jig -- $40 to make carpentry projects super easy.
  • Rivnut tool -- for mounting things to sheet metal.
  • Shop towels -- more versatile paper towels.
  • good cooler -- ice last 5-8 days even in the middle of summer heat.
  • bug nets for windows -- but them pre-made or build your own. Gives you airflow in summer without letting the bugs in.
  • candle lantern -- cheap. Safe if you blow it out before crawling into bed. Nice soft lighting to give you a break from blue LEDs.
  • Aeropress coffee maker -- great coffee where ever you are. Quick and easy to clean.
  • mechanic gloves -- for when you've got to do work and don't want super greasy hands and bloody knuckles.
u/PartOfTheTribe · 2 pointsr/crossfit
u/Connorthedev · 2 pointsr/Tools

Maxiflex. Hands down. Feel good, fit my hands well, not very thick, but not too thin. I found myself eating lunch with them on sometimes... 9/10 would recommend. Just don't get them soaked.

These specifically.

u/lSherlockl · 2 pointsr/airsoft

given your links i think specifying country would help you out some with peoples suggestions.


if you take into consideration this is the opinion of USA based stuff i tried to be helpful when i could


the mesh mask like you linked is pretty much standard i would recommend that or something like [this one]( not familiar with the language probably better deals but the padded sides conform better and will be a bit more comfortable.


Goggles: not sure if in europe there is the same governing standards but US we use ansi Z87, i really like Pyramex Full seal dual pane goggles (couldn't find them on your amazon) but they run ~$15 here, ro like a pair of surplus desert Locust goggles off of ebay.


Gloves: [Mechanix wear mpacts]( are gloves of my choice come in multicam, and some neutral earthy colors like coyote as well. The Mpacts have a rubber bumper on the back side of knuckles etc and still have good hand dexterity/feel they are pricier but quite well made in my book. Alternatively some mechanic type glove likely will offer good protection and handling dexterity and be found much cheaper wherever.


Boots: Really get a decent hiking boot, to me then its dual purpose I use Salomon Gtx2 Mid's special colors arent a huge deal just go for something more natural in color unless you are stickler for a certain unit look (mine are actually a discountinued color which is a deep vibrant green certainly not military but hey they were cheaper and comfy gets the job done). Merrill, Lowa also known for good hiking boots over here. I feel like this one may be more dependant on whats available in your country but TDLR get a decent hiking boot in a neutral color. can use it for airsoft and hiking working etc


Clothing: Thats a hard one a good entry point is usually army surplus but againd dependent on where you are. and or budgets as well some people go crazy with Crye and whatnot but my advice starting out keep it simple go like with some surplus it will be more durable than most "airsoft" marketed or grade stuff. High end being europe i think? i would say go like with claw-gear before Crye (actually imported clawgear to us here as was cheaper than crye been happy with it so far) But really some decent milsurp or mid/entry level branded tactical stuff like 5.11 etc vs airsoft or Chinese knockoffs.


whew and sorry for the block of text!

u/A_Stray_Fox · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You can buy thread that conducts electricity and if you sew a few stitches on the finger tip you can have any pair you like.

Edit :

u/samcbar · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

Kinco "Ski" gloves. I have like 3 pair. You will want some leather water proofer. Not great in wet weather.

u/ween0t · 2 pointsr/BurningMan

I use these mostly if its actual real work i'm doing. Camp setup, tear down, etc.

But then I also have a pair of fingerless biking gloves that I use as well. For my daily carry I usually keep the biking gloves if i venture out. The fingerless are good if you want more dexterity and its hot out. In camp I always have the more durable work gloves handy if I need more protection.

u/siliconsmurf · 2 pointsr/wma

I would look at cheap "synthetic leather" mechanics gloves. I have used a basic fake leather mechanics gloves for my hoof SG for the last few years and they held up well. If you shop aorund you can find similar branded gloves for around 8-20$.

u/CptRobBob · 2 pointsr/skiing

The full leather ones are pretty warm. I have a pair of the gloves and mittens. I haven't had a day where I needed anything warmer. I wear the cloth-back ones the majority of the time though.

Though I'm not sure how available they are in Europe.

u/two-dollars · 2 pointsr/Denver

I use get a pair of these to ski in. Best money I've ever spent on gloves. I'm sure they could be found at a hardware store around town.

u/midri · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

I use these, they double as pretty good hiking/climbing gloves (original reason I got them was for my trail climbing in Peru)

u/DustAndSound · 2 pointsr/SquaredCircle

Not sure about those guys, but Sting wore Mechanix gloves during his WCW run as crow sting

u/MeadeNJ · 2 pointsr/spartanrace

I've always used Mechanix gloves:

Good, general use gloves - it comes down to personal preference, but I like the finger coverage especially for pulling the gravel into the buckets or hauling the logs around

I setup a little photoshoot for you guys, the only thing bad is that I didn't have a decent camera on me today. Anyways, here is my new night parka setup. This is a pretty cheap loadout to replicate so if you want to look to see if you can replicate it, go ahead! Here is my loadout to what follows:

u/LinearFluid · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

You want a Nitrile glove they are impervious to Diesel as well as other chemicals.

The standard are the exam Gloves which are good for fine work. But they also make Gloves dipped/coated in Nitrile.

If you want full protection something like these.

These gloves are full dipped and a PVC cuff instead of a cotton cuff or being only palm dipped so they offer full protection for just hands.

The thing is that they are not going to be really durable like leather gloves.

Ifg you just want palm coverage there are several cotton gloves with nitrile not coating everything.

You might also check out these.

u/Jstalin13 · 1 pointr/techtheatre

I would recommend anything by Mechanix. I have a pair of the original in high vis that I use on the job and when I bike. I also have a pair of their framer gloves. Personally I prefer framer gloves so I can still have the full dexterity of my bare fingers

u/tejoman · 1 pointr/spartanrace

Generally gloves are unnecessary at a race. If it's cold or the terrain is garbage, then maybe. However, gloves are basically required at HH and HH12HR. I'd recommend Mechanix gloves like these

u/MjrGrangerDanger · 1 pointr/furniturerestoration

I love projects like this. Your furnishings feel much more your own, and they take on a sense of permanence you can't get with big box furnishings.

A heat gun and putty knives work very well to remove the stickers. Use a low setting, don't keep the heat focused on one area for too long and keep an eye out for browning, singeing, smoking, and fire. You've got lots of space to work with so skip around to allow the wood to cool. You'll potentially be removing whatever finish is on the couch if you are too heavy handed and or use too much heat. If you plan on refinishing use the heat gun and putty knife to remove the finish.

You can try just scraping with a razor blade to remove most of the stickers and then saturating the area with full strength degreaser, such as D-Limonene.covering the area with a paper towel to keep the degreaser in place.

A couple of razor tools to consider: 4" wide short handled for large areas with thick layers of stickers. Smaller razor scrapers with metal and plastic blades. Plastic detail scrapers might be useful too.

Instead of using Goo Gone I like pure D-Limonene solution. It's a potent degreaser extracted from citrus peels and contains no petroleum distillates, unlike Goo Gone. It also comes in food safe solution - though to be safe for digestion it really does need to be quite dilute.

Use the putty knife and rags or gauze to clean the adhesive from the wood. Large Woven Gauze Sponges are more scratchy and will give more traction with absorption. Rolled Stretch Gauze Bandages have the same great absorbing properties but they're softer and great for detail work. You'll get to know what you prefer - I'm partial to gauze sponges. They're cheap and I just toss them into the compost bin as long as they aren't too bummed up with adhesive top.

To remove the degreaser dish soap and rubbing alcohol work well. I like Dr Bronner's castile soap diluted for dishwashing. Wipe down with 90% Isopropyl Alcohol. You should be good to move on to your next step, probably sanding and smoothing, patching any holes or gouges to prep for staining and finishing or painting.

I linked a whole bunch of products to give you an idea of what will work for certain applications. There are definitely other ways to achieve the same goals, this is just how I tackle this task. Please don't order everything listed here at once, see what works from you. I link Amazon because they have everything but locally owned small businesses are an invaluable resource and great when you get stuck in a project.

Don't forget your PPE'S!

Dust Mask - I like this one as you can vacuum the filters out to extend the life and reduce waste. It has a smaller profile too - my husband actually doesn't complain about wearing it, just puts it on.

Some type of work gloves

Good luck!

I'd second /u/loansindi, the Dirty Rigger gloves are nice.

I generally have two or three pairs, depending on what exactly I'm doing - different gloves for loading cradles (as steel kills gloves fast), just cheap ones like [these] (; and then better made, closer fitting ones (like the Dirty Riggers) for actual flying operation.

I also like ones like these for lighter weight work, where I only need minimal protection [I typically wear these when I'm on a call bumping in flight cases, etc]. They're good for stuffing in a pocket (I also tend to cut the fingertips off for better dexterity, but that's a personal choice having assessed the risks specific to my environment).

u/vankorgan · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Here. I use these for camping and fire prep. work great.

u/dragon34 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Lots of good advice here. Just keep in mind that mittens are warmer than gloves, and that anything fabric can be made into a touch glove:

u/CloffWrangler · 1 pointr/boostedboards

I use some Mechanix gloves. They’re light enough that I can still use the remote with them. They’re not the greatest when it starts to get down to like under 30° but they’re better than nothing.


u/Votearrows · 1 pointr/weightroom

Yeah, same setup. I have low ceilings and artsy door arches, so I do pullups on a pipe outside. Sometimes I'll wear some of those form-fitting work gloves. Nothing too thick, but something so I'm not touching the metal directly.

u/wkuace · 1 pointr/airsoft

Always gloves! I took a hit to my index finger and I think it cracked it. Took months to feel right again. I have a set of Mechanix M-pact. Nice and comfy, keeps my fingers warm in the cold, not too hot in the summer, and good grip. I don't feel like I'm losing any dexterity with them and they have rubber protection over the joints. My only complaint is them not working with touch screens.


u/broken42 · 1 pointr/airsoft

Why not just get the Framer gloves? They come with the thumb, index, and middle as fingerless.

u/jefuchs · 1 pointr/ArtisanVideos
u/limitless__ · 1 pointr/Tools

I use these for working on my cars:

If I'm doing a fluid change I'll always use disposable but for any work that requires me to feel around I will use the maxiflex. If you use non-disposable for fluids you'll have to wipe them down anyway which means you're throwing away paper towels/rags.

u/msutphin · 1 pointr/HVAC

Nope, highly recommend them though, best gloves I’ve tried link

These gloves are the shit:

Mechanix Wear - MultiCam M-Pact Tactical Gloves (Large, Camouflage)

I used them when I first started riding and now I use them for BMX. Tacticool all the way.

u/Phastor · 1 pointr/EDC

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/secretsuperhero · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

I use these for a few months at a time working in the desert, granted i'm not clearing brush or anything, just light construction. I also use them at home in my shop every day.

u/4InchesOfury · 1 pointr/simracing

I didn't want to spend $60 on karting gloves so I followed the common advice and got these Mechanix gloves. The major difference for me is that it allowed me to run a higher forcefeedback (still below clipping range of course) than I would normally run. The wheel felt much lighter because of the grip that the gloves offered me.

u/zod201 · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I use these electronic ear muffs. They work quite well but sometimes you have to double up if the guy next to you has a big boom stick. Gloves I use Mechanix, they're cheap and good.

u/fourknotsnowhere · 1 pointr/scooters

ive found that your traditional bulky winter golves and be a hassle for small controls on your panel so i go with a pair of these

decent wind/water/cut protection

u/EvolvingMachinery · 1 pointr/ultimate

Several people I play with use Gorilla Grips from Homedepot; I have used them and they work very well. Another industrial glove I have used is MaxiFlex Ultimate and I love them but are harder to find in stores.

I have tried Huck Nation (didn't like them at all) and Friction gloves (good, but not worth the price) and neither of them compared to the value of $3-$5 gloves found at your local hardware store. When in doubt look for gloves with a Nitrile coating and you will be very happy.

u/MK_Ultrex · 1 pointr/bicycling

Every glove is a phone glove. Just pass a couple of loops of this at the fingertips. Ebay has a lot of cheaper options too.

u/iamda5h · 1 pointr/Mountaineering

Kinco Gloves are massively popular with people who want something durable and cheap. Just rub em down with wax often to keep the water out.

u/Concise_Pirate · 1 pointr/KitchenConfidential

Got a chain mail glove around?

Damn, I didn't know how expensive those are.

u/BrandMuffin · 1 pointr/techtheatre

I use gloves with leather palms like these. They work well as general purpose gloves.

u/jussiadler · 1 pointr/LifeProTips
u/MaKa77 · 1 pointr/simracing

I prefer something with a little ventilation, something like this or this. I tried a pair of karting gloves but found them too heavy for the summer months.

Non-mobile: these

u/Arsenal85 · 1 pointr/Military

Mechanix is always a solid choice. These are my favorites and these if you want full finger.

EDIT: Make sure you're authorized to get these types. Unless your command gives no fucks.

u/fidelitypdx · 1 pointr/CampingGear

I use Mechanix gloves - favorite is Mechanix Original Covert Large , you just have to keep in mind they're disposable and will break. I also have a pair of leather gardening gloves that I bring along when I'm foraging wood.

u/dtaoo · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I fell at 30 mph with these gloves and it saved my palms. These are designed to absorb high impacts on the palms and I agree that they're not as great as wrist guards. But they do give you the freedom to move your wrist comfortably, compare to wrist guards where they really restrict you. Small things like being able to use your phone with wrist guards are sometimes difficult.

Overall, wrist guards are great if you go high speeds and the mechanix gloves are great on casual daily rides.

Tried everything else before I bought some of these and I haven't looked back.

u/probablyabird · 1 pointr/Aquariums

They are hard to manipulate small things with, but for just general siphoning and moving around larger things - might consider long arm gloves

u/drinkmorecoffee · 1 pointr/crossfit

I got some Mechanix gloves, they work pretty well. I can still get blisters if I'm not careful, but they help a lot.

u/Sukach · 1 pointr/guns
u/xSoulgrinderx · 1 pointr/airsoft




Here are the first things to get. Gloves, because getting shot in the fingernail and having it rib backwards f*%$ing sucks, and good eye protection. The rest is up to you.

u/dpr1me · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I found that the coating flakes off fairly quickly when I use these. (commercial carpentry) I use these They're also the type of gloves my foreman was buying for the crew during framing. Good dexterity with screws but you'll need to tape your finger if you're cutting drywall. They don't take repeated friction too well.
