    Gloves....do you use them?

    Does anyone use gloves when detecting? I use Ansell Hyflex foam lined, modlel 11-800. Very comfortable, thin, and lightweight. They keep your hands clean and cool, and you can even pick things up with them on. No loss of feeling like in some gloves. They are a bit pricy, around $15.00 a pair, but worth it.

    I know what you mean about being able to grip things with them. That is what I like about the type I use.

    For a short time out I may not. But if I know I'm going to be digging for a while, I'll use one glove on my Knife hand, it sure saves the hand from getting blisters and other hand ungloved to work hole. Monk

    Re: Gloves....do you use them?

    I use a pair of deerskin work gloves with velcro closures if I know I'm going to be doing heavy digging, like in the woods, or in wet sand at the beach. It keeps my hands dry, and blister, bug bite, and poison ivy free. If I'm just going to the local park, school or ballfield, I leave em in the car.

    I use a pair of brown cotton jersey gloves. They save the skin on my hands, are comfortable to wear and can be purchase by the dozen for about 5 bucks. Jim Cal

    Re: Gloves....do you use them?

    I use some similar to the ones you use. They are rubber on the palms, and cloth on the back...
    Good tight fit, I didn't like to use them at first, but it is much better then getting all that grit between your fingers...
    During the winter months grip or not , I also wore a pair of tight fitting leather gloves over top, to try to keep my fingers warm..

    Try Grainger industrial supply. They have them for less then $5 a pair. Much less then what we pay for them at work. Type in 11-800 under manufactures part number in the search function.

    Re: Gloves....do you use them?

    I wear gloves (Rayon/Cotton) which are fairly inexpensive. Gloves are an important part of my equipment because they protect me from sharp objects (like broken glass), abrasion, dirty hands. I take them off when I probe for coins so I can feel the coins etc. I did get cut once from some broken glass when I was detecting in a park one day. I realized that the cut was deep and also full of dirt and who knows what was on the glass. I learned my lesson that day. Here in Nebraska it gets cold enough some days where gloves make the difference between going home and staying a lot longer at a productive site. I will metal detect long as I can so I go with all the necessary items to keep me going. Gloves are another part of good planning and protective clothing that allows me to do it longer! Bobcat

    I use a pair of green long gloves that are used for... when you are working with chemicals/cleaners. I got them at Walmart. Easy to wash and since I run into so much glass and rusty nails..they are great and have saved me from cuts and dirty hands.
