My EDC Gloves in the winter are a pair from the Isotoner smarTouch line of gloves. They are not the warmest gloves but are great for everyday winter temperatures (up to -15 C / 5 F roughly), aren't too bulky or flashy and can be used with any touch screen devices.

I have more gloves than I can wear.  I have three pair of Isotoners as far back as from 1985, I black, brown and tan.  They are well designed and wear very well.  Also Hatch gloves for shooting and Gripswell for driving.

Hind makes a great pair of gloves. They're used by runners, but I really like the ones I have because they're light weight and super warm.

Can't go wrong with Mechanix Gloves. They have really went after the "tactical" market. Tough gloves that are comfortable and cheap. I picked up the fast fits and the original in wolf grey and I love them.

Usually one type of mechanix gloves or another. I go through a pair a month or so on average. I keep both summer and winter, as needed. If I'm trying to melt a carbine, I'll bring a pair of Wiley-X with me. 

I was looking to buy a pair of Mechanix Fast Fit gloves

I carry a pair of Hatch FM3500 Friskmaster on me when I leave the house. I like them a lot.

 

The only beef I have with leather gloves are that if they get wet they then dry with the speed of a fresh coat of paint in a thunderstorm and if the weather is cold they do not keep your hands warm. On the other hand, I very seldom wear them for warmth but for when I need to touch someone I don't fancy (drunks, junkies etc) and when I help friends out moving furniture, carrying firewood or somesuch.

I hear more and more people speaking highly of Mechanix-gloves so I may have to try those out in some shape or form in the future.

I saw that someone earlier made mention of BSX and Hobart welding gloves.  I use those myself-- BSX for MIG and gas welding, Hobart for stick welding, and Lincoln Electric for TIG.  After I'm done with the Hobart stick gloves, my girlfriend uses them around the pricklier plants in her gardens.

 

...and a couple pairs of purple nitrile in the FAK, of course.

For shooting (handgun and shotgun) check out golf and baseball gloves. Quite tough for all the twisting of hands needed for the sports but still light and tactile.

I use these Reebox gloves because they actually have hard knuckle protection - not some simple padding.

My hands always come out unscathed.

 

When cleaning I use these black nitrile gloves which are super cheap for a box of 100.

Geier elk hide gloves in my jacket pocket for every day wear at work, and a set of heavy Wells-Lamont cowhide gloves stowed in my pack for when things get heavy-duty.  I usually modify both of those to make them more form-fitting, supple and longer lasting.

 

I'm also in rubber gloves at least a couple of times a week working with dyes and paints...usually from either Harbor Freight or the local Walton family-owned establishment.

I was looking for gloves for outdoor use around the house, wood chopping, brush clearing, etc.

I just ordered this Wells Lamont three pack on Ebay after watching the review below.

Slightly off-topic, are there any weight lifters or climbers in here? I recently tore through a pair of Nike basic ones (won't make that mistake again), and have since moved on to a sturdier leather pair (Alpha Structure) and was wondering what you guys used. I've also had some good experience with Under Armor gloves.

I just received my Wells Lamont gloves, I paid $28.99 for a three pack on Ebay.  I got the Medium size (I only ever saw medium and large sizes offered) and they fit me well.  My hands are not particularly large, about 7 inches from the base of my palm to the top of my middle finger.  I have not put them to use yet but out of the box they seem like a well made, comfortable glove.  I will report back once I have done work with them and can gauge their durability.
