    Lizard Skins Komodo gloves. $20 at go-ride.com They are cheap and comfortable. I have also tried TLD GP(or whatever they are called) gloves and I don't wear them that much. They don't feel as good as the Lizard Skins.

    I wear a pair of 04' Fox Pawtectors. Best gloves I've ever owned. So damn comfy, and they look cool and are functional too.

    I've had good luck with Fox sidwinders....beat the hell outa of them for a couple seasons and the've held up great... they should run like 30 bucks..... Mechanix brand gloves are good and cheap you can get them at most auto places......Just go to your LBS and try some on

    I've been running Troy Lee SE gloves for a couple of years now (and by that I mean last year I had 2003 models, this year 2004) and both years have held up very well. The knuckle protection on the '04s is pretty solid, about as good as you can get without going to a carbon knuckle glove. I'm not a big fan of the carbon stuff myself, as all of the different brands I've tried on cause at least some restriction which will inevitably lead to arm pump, just like everything else in the world. Anyway, the TLD's are pretty sick, the Lizard Skins mentioned above offer good protection at a ridiculously low price.
