Gloves

I have been using the Bionic made gloves and like them. Looking to either stay with them or going with the Rogue Mechanix Original Vented Glove - Covert. I did not know much about the Rogue gloves and wonder if anyone uses these or like these? I am looking for something durable, of course, but something that drys well and that fits well! If you have any other suggestions please let me know. Thank you for your help.

Re: Gloves

Gloves have become popular in my gym lately. Great for anything with a lot of kipping or for barbell complexes. We all wear motocross or mountain bike gloves. Snug fit, thin leather palm. Super grippy once you get them a little damp and chalk them up.

I agree. I wear cyclist gloves because that have enough padding where needed, lightweight and breathable.

Re: Gloves

Is there a difference between the Mechanix gloves that Rogue sells and the ones you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot? They look the same.

Same ones. They are also the same I used for CQB and my tour. Quite awesome. Hands don't get calloused holding an LMG several hours a day, so I can see them working just fine with barbells and Pullup Bars.

Re: Gloves

I've heard some really good things about the Reebok CrossFit gloves.

It's a good glove, and, unless I am mistaken and they are a knock off, you can get 'em on amazon for about $16--know some mechanics that don't like them because the fingers wear out but haven't seen that problem personally ...

Thank you to everyone. I did some more research and found the same gloves on Amazon (like you stated). Cheaper and the same glove. Nothing against Rogue, love the brand, but when you can find them $10 cheaper on Amazon, can not beat them. Thanks for the comments folks, have a great day!
