    "Mechanix" brand gloves

    I just completed an order (Merry Xmas to me) for a new pair of the Mechanix Impact2 gloves. It got me to wondering if anyone had a better site/price. I ordered mine from the www.mechanix.com site. Price was $39.99. Free shipping <yeah right>

    I love the Mechanix gloves and have gone through quite a few pair <of different models> since they were introduced.
    If someone has a better vendor, I'd appreciate hearing about them.
    Thanx.

    I buy mine at AutoZone for about $25.

    I buy a new pair each winter to wear as cold gloves, then wear them out in the summer working.

    Re: "Mechanix" brand gloves

    Are these "Mechanix" gloves that good? Are they worth the $$?

    I've always bought the nice thin leather ones from Sams's club (2 pack for $20). Looks like they quit making/carrying them though (called "Tradesmen" gloves - unlined leather).

    I have a couple of Kobalt gloves too (more of the "Mechanix" style, but I ripped the cuff off of one of them pulling it on - right after I bought them.

    I'm willing to try something new...at least once...

    I like the Mechanix gloves. I am very hard on them because I use them as regular work gloves. I do not wear gloves when working on cars unless I HAVE to do something when the engine is hot.

    So using them as regular work gloves is a little hard on them. I noticed they changed them a little this year. The index finger pad area is leather now. That is usually where I wear it out is on the pad of the finger tips.

    It did only take one pair to build the garage and I am sure it saved me many, MANY cuts on my hands.
