    Thanks!

    Fox Incline. Cheap, light weight, last a pretty darn long time. Been using them almost exclusively for years and years.

    Keep an eye on Chain Love. They ALWAYS have full finger gloves on there for cheap. Their brands & models vary but I've they are typically around $10 so even if they don't last 5 years you'll likely get your moneys worth!

    The conditions are too extreme for full finger gloves in "our climate." I've been wearing these finger-less gloves from AzIsNotAsX-tremeAsMostPeopleThink.com and as you can see I'm shreding pretty hard.

    I like the gloes that have terrycloth on the thumbs for wiping snot/sweat. There is a moto-cross shop on cavecreek road south of Greenway that has a HUGE selection of gloves, last yearts models can be had for cheap. I prefer to try on thing before I buy.

    MotoX gloves. The motorcycle bars are the same diameter as ours basically, they don't really have "padding", and sometimes the EXACT same gloves are sold in mountain bike shops, just for a lot more money. The design criteria is the same. Full fingered gloves are worth it for protection, no question.

    661 401gloves that chainlove is blowing out. Comfy with little padding if you're into that plus no wrist strap. I have smaller wrist so the wrist strap always fit akward on me.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I am going to give the Fox Incline gloves a shot.

    I am also watching Chainlove. Kind of addicting, isn't it? :-)

    Giro Rivets are nice. They are well ventilated for AZ too

    I like the Fox Unibombers since they have some built in knuckle protection. After clipping the same damn cholla at least 3 times now, I've learned my lesson. I ride them until they come apart...

    I've used some of the Western Safety gloves, (Harbor Freight has them). Tried both the mechanic's and vibration specific line of gloves. Good padding. They also sell no finger tip gloves too. with a 20% coupon, price ain't bad.

    I generally throw them away after a season or two. I must have sweaty hands...

    Unibombers are my favorite yet. Lotsa protection that you really don't notice.

    Giro Rivets and the UniBombers looked tempting. In the end, I purchased the Fox Incline. I wore them this afternoon on a ride and they seem great. Takes a bit getting used to, as I have always ridden with no finger type.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions! I thought for sure I was going to get hazed for asking this question! LOL!

    I always liked Dakine riding gloves. Good protection, well ventilated, snot and sweat wipe, and they look pretty cool (for those who give a crap about looks). They are not good for landscaping though, ripped while messing with rocks. Clearly stupid of me, but I was born in Canada....

    i noticed that after a while your gloves get so caked with salt from sweat,, that they kinda stand up on their own...
    but if you come upon an critically electrolyte-depleted person on the trail, you could give them one to suck on and it might just save their life

    powerful integrity - nice. I did find their finger length a little short. Had the Ventilators, ended up feeling like I had webbed hands - you know, Abe Sapien style

    I liked the Pearl Izumi ones I had before I left them on the roof of the car. REI has a decent selection. You wear them out, or rip them, take it back.

    Man I have been thru a ton of gloves specialized,fox,THE,giro, and troylee .. All of them lasted short times. But I suppose carrying rocks and swinging tools with them doesn't help..

    However the best gloves that had lasted the longest with the best stiching were some kawasaki moto gloves. Even tried mechanic gloves at one point but their bulk sucks

    I'm currently in Fox something-or-others; up here in Presskit, I don't notice that they're too oppressively hot even in summer. Can't say the same about the cheap mechanics' gloves I've tried. My all-time favorites were a pair of Dirt Rag branded gloves made for them by Fox.

    I don't know if I have particularly long fingers, but the first points to fail for me on any thin glove are the tips of my thumb, index & middle fingers, to the point that I've just started snipping them off at the first sign of holes developing. This was even before I got a smart phone & discovered the advantages of being able to operate a touch screen without taking off my bike gloves.
