John Deere work gloves

How good are John Deere work gloves?

I've tested out a wide variety of work gloves over the last 8 years, but none of them have come close to the quality these new John Deere gloves exude.

At 20 dollars they're a bit over twice what I usually like to pay, but I can already tell it's going to be worth it in just the way the green stretchy material hugs the back of my hand.

The leather is thicker than most work gloves without being too thick. Some gloves are plenty thick, but next to impossible to grip anything with full confidence.

I prefer the "mechanix" brand gloves myself. I use them in my construction job and they handle most of the work I put at them. I do wear out allot of gloves (last about two months) so I try to buy them when there on sale. I prefer a tighter fitting glove to prevent chaifing and blisters and these fit my hands well. They also deal with heat and cold very well.

Wow, you go through your gloves even faster than Mark does! I tend to use his castoffs because I just don't use gloves that much. (I do more of the garden tasks, and they're not as glove friendly.)
