    New Pair of tactical Gloves

    In the market for a new pair of gloves, I had an excelent pair of Petzl Rope / Belay gloves that lasted a good 5 years http://www.petzl.com/en/pro/vertical...ssories/cordex (obviously not in dayglo yellow!). But have recently started to come undone with stitching on fingers splitting.

    Anyone bought a decent pair recently? I don't like the soldier 95 gloves either which are the most readily available. Water proof is not a priority either so won't be using seal skins!

    Was looking mechanix mpact gloves or http://www.nightgear.co.uk/511-Tacti...m?colour=Black something along the lines of these. Around €50 is my maximum.

    Also for any of the anti-gucci crowd. Yes I have tried using the Woodies work gloves in black only costs €5 and very tactile, but I want something that will protect the hand and last the pace with a few weeks hard wear!

    I've a set of these in olive green. Great gloves, very hard wearing and excellent dexterity.

    Oakleys do a great set of tactical gloves. You'd be looking at 40 for the gloves and another ten for shipping though. Know a few lads who use them. Only thing I didn't like about them was a lack of dexterity but no more then any other glove

    The M-Pact gloves were spot on. Great lightweight but tough glove survived 2 weeks out on the ground and some serious rough housing. But caveat emptor, one of the lads bought a pair at the same time as me and the rubber moulding on his came loose after a day or too. 8/10 if I was to rank them.
