    Same here. I found a great pair of FF gloves at Home Depot for $11. They're called Handyman, and they're made by CLC. Great pair of gloves, and they're perfect for cool to warm riding.

    Only thing they don't have is a snot strip. Oh well.

    Get the Fox Digit or Incline, they are awesome gloves. I got the Digit for 27$ and the Incline for 20$ They both have silicone grips on the finger tips for braking, Velcro straps to adjust for the wrist, and the Digit especially has good cooling.they both have suede, good padding if you have to bail, and the Incline has a terrycloth thumb to wipe off sweat. Both are good gloves, but I like the Fox Digit more. The Digit is for AM biking and the Incline is for XC riding.

    I just got a pair of 661 raji gloves. They have a mesh back so that your hands get plenty of air to keep cool....

    Full finger gloves are great for hot days as long as you don't get winter gloves. That said, I have gone through a lot of riding gloves (Fox, Troy Lee, Raceface, Pearl Izumi) and my Pearl Izumi gloves absolutely dominate all the other gloves I have used (for XC/AM use). I will never buy another glove not made by Pearl Izumi except for DH which I use Troy Lee gloves for. Its my personal preference and opinion, but Pearl Izumi gloves are the best XC/AM gloves on the market.
    Cheers,

    Seb

    I've worn these Jett combat gloves all summer and winter and love them. They are still in perfect condition even after plenty of crashes. http://stores.jett-gear.com/-strse-4...ACK/Detail.bok

    I have the Specialized Enduro, they had great reviews and were highly recommended. I have had them for two months now and absolutely love them.

    This is one of those personal fit issues where I say, walk into your LBS, stuff your paws into a variety of different gloves, then go "pretend" to ride the mtb's on display. Watch out, for any inside seams you notice now will drive you crazy later.

    I have the Specialized BG Radiator, probably the best MTB full-finger gloves I've ever had!

    I swear by the full fingers too for all riding I do. I would never go with half fingers ever again.

    I saw something like those in my local bike store. They have no padding on the back on the hand which sucks.

    Dirtpaws are amazing. Have lasted a long time. I avoided full fingers for a while thinking that I wouldn't feel as attached to my bike as I would like. That is not an issue with these gloves and they have saved a lot of the skin on my hands several times.

    I'm looking at getting a pair of those. I think the mesh back is a great idea.
