    Only once in eight and a half years detecting and that was last winter when the weather was tolerable but the ground was frosty. Didn't like em, felt awkward and couldn't feel what I was doing. So far only ever had one small cut. In fact first I ever knew folks to wear them was when I joined forums and seen photos.

    I also wear gloves I don't like dirt on my hands but I was very curious how many didn't.

    I always wear gloves and usually have a spare pair for a noobie. Never know what's in the hole with the goodies. HH

    I wear a glove on my left hand and a bare hand to swing the detector with so I don't get the handle muddy. If it's cold I wear two though.

    The very first hole I ever dug had a screw top with a large piece of glass stuck in it.
    Luckily that first hole was huge.
    After rooting around with my digger and hand looking for that first target before I piled the dirt back in the hole I saw this thing sticking right out of the edge of one side.
    That was close, I could have needed a trip the the emergency room on my very first dig.
    I immediately drove to Home Depot and bought a pair of gloves and have worn them ever since.

    I actually use disposable nitrile exam gloves, I buy a pack of 100 and I'm good for the year. They're thin so that I can feel around the hole, always slow and careful of glass though, but I need them to help with all the poison ivy everywhere I go in the woods. Also keeps mosquitos off my knuckles, which they love, as well as dirt from working under my nails, which just stings after a while. They do get torn up after a while, so I always bring an extra pair.

    I always find a way to cut myself if I don't wear gloves. Or I get a nice signal in an ant hill and I end up getting all bitten up for a clad dime.

    I asked this question since when I watch videos they are never wearing gloves, but now that I think about it they probably can't wear gloves since they're doing camera work.

    No gloves unless it's so cold you can't stand it without them. My hands are like leather though from work.

    My nephew is a shrimper and he has big rough hands. He shucks oysters without gloves.

    No Gloves Here. I 'try' and make my plug a little bigger, then I go through the dirt with a 6"x 1/2" red plastic scraper that's shaped like a ruler and of course my pin pointer. I scrape across the grass and ground with it first to make sure there is nothing sharp. I Rarely MD in areas that have a lot of known drug use by needles. If I did I'd be wearing one Kevlar glove and one surgeons glove. I know needles could be anywhere. Like the posters said that it was hard to feel what's in a hole or grass with gloves, I feel the same way.

    No gloves. I don't mind getting dirt under my nails. Never got a cut from nails and glass.

    I carry gloves but typically do not use them. I prefer to have the tactile feel which has helped me immensely hone my craft. I do always have a current tetanus shot......don't be stupid. If you are going to metal detect, you better get comfortable with the dirt.
