    Best finger / knuckle protecting glove

    I ride through a lot of narrow trails choked with scraggly scrub oak. I prefer thin gloves with no padding so I find myself wearing xc gloves (troy lee air glove) all the time but my fingers get torn up on the outside from grazing the folliage. Anyone have a suggestion for thin palm gloves with good finger protection on the outside?

    Fox Dirtpaw has pretty decent knuckle/finger protection. Can get a bit warm though, but maybe my hands just sweat a lot...

    I have these but cant stand wearing them. The dome over the outside knuckles mashes into my hand when I grab the bar. Maybe I just need a bigger size but the ones I got make things worse.

    I just got a pair of Troy Lee gloves, Lots of protection on the back of the hand and fingers, nice and grippy. And as an added bonus you can see me coming a mile away.

    Dainese atrax are what I have been using for a while and they are solid protection. Expensive, but they have held up well.

    There are about a million different shorty street moto gloves that have way more hand protection than mtb gloves. Most of them are leather, and I like to throw my gloves in the wash machine when my hands start stinking for a day after wearing them, so I only ride moto gloves on a moto.

    Look into the Fox Bombers (cheapest of the lot), TLD Apex or Oakley Factory Pilot (too $$ IMO).I been using the Fox Bomber for a little over 3yrs for dh and freeride and like em', only complaint hotter than Hades in the summer.
