Hi all. I have a pair of Firm Grip brand General Purpose gloves I bought from Home Depot. The palms are made with a washable synthetic suede material. The first day I used them, I wore a hole through the top of the palms, right where they join the fingers. If they hadn't worn through in the palm, they would have worn through at the fingertips of the index and middle fingers. I was shoveling gravel, not at all a hard use situation. Apparently the faux suede material was pulled apart somehow. But, I have to say, the gloves were light and comfortable, and gave you plenty of dexterity.
So what gloves do you like? I have had plenty of the old-school, leather or leather/canvas gloves that don't fit well but last pretty well. I would like something that fit better, but still had plenty of durability, especially in the palm and fingertips.
Thanks in advance!
