    What gloves are people using? I am looking for some gloves that breathe well, can keep my hands warm when it is cold out and has leather index finger and palm.

    I doubt you'll find those. I use two different pair depending on weather;

    My spring/summer/fall gloves are a set of Mechanix brand. They've got great tactile response and wear well.

    My winter gloves are a set of issue cold weather trigger finger mittens. When it's cold I just wear the wool liner, and when it's REALLY cold I toss on the nylon/leather outer.

    I honestly believe spending more than $30US on shooting gloves is just paying for style. You'll go through a set each year if you're actively using them.

    Well looking harder at the Mechanix brand, they have the Covert series and that is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks Dark

    Oakley These are expensive, but very nice gloves. Mechanix are good gloves, and Harbor Freight has knockoff Mechanix gloves for under $10

    Has anybody tried the gloves that look like they are made out of wet suit material?

    I have been using Fox Mountainbiking gloves. My hands sweat alot and these dissapate heat and sweat. I'm also looking at the Mechnix coverts but if they don't fit correctly, I will stick with the Fox.

    3rd on Mechanix. The only nice things about Oakleys and Wiley X's is the knuckles are protected(not really needed for civilian applications) My last set of Oakleys fell apart pretty quick for the price. Keeping your hands warm and shooting do not go together.

    I don't wear gloves when pistol shooting because I believe I should train how I would have to fight....and I don't run around wearing shooting gloves.

    I do work in leather gloves, so sometimes I shoot wearing those if I am back in the shooting area of the place when I am walking the sheep and all....just in case I need to do so in real life.

    Of course, as always, your mileage may vary...

    I very seldom shoot with a glove... If I do I grab one of my raquetball gloves.

    Works fer me!

    I don't, as a general rule, wear gloves when I shoot, because I don't wear gloves to town.

    I do, however, on occasion, while out "afield" with the sheep (think old style shepherd wandering around over hill and dale) find it convenient to pop off a few rounds. On those occasions, I will be wearing leather gloves.....

    Sorry if I confused you....it's so hard to make things clear on this thing.
