With a visit by Jack Frost's nephew this moring it seemed like a good time to take stock of gloves in my work truck.
I found some stashed in the door, some tucked behind back seat and some jacket tossed behind the same seat.

I think I'm set for fall, but what about winter?

Nice!

Majestic elk skin gloves are probably the most comfortable gloves I have.
USA made Geier gloves are probably my favorite

Geier Gloves 748 are for the days you wake up ready to string barbed wire

My dad had some elk skin, rabbit fir lined drivers similar to those 748's I have stashed in a safe. His hands were small so they're small but boy those things are nice.

Years ago I saw Nascar guys wearing mechanix gloves working on hot car parts to get a crashed car back in the race. I figured well, a thermos does hot or cold so.... and they worked well at keeping away the chill. Now they weren't very durable for work gloves. But the "impact" model was and a lot warmer in winter. I never really dug the wrist velcro thing. So when the fast fit arrived I went that route.

The durahide model is new to me so I don't know how well they'll keep the chill out. The "utility" ones with the fingers chopped off have been my driver gloves since about 2011 or so. They work great on cold, crisp mornings to scrape frost from windshields and such.

The top right are Cody James driver gloves. I have the chore grade in my shed and those are great. They aid grip like pine tar but are as supple as cotton gloves. Well worth the $20.

Not shown are some mechanix "cold" gloves that are fast fit thick with thin insulated lining and were my cold weather gloves last winter. They were surprisingly warm. Not Yukon weather warm but pretty good when a cloudy, 20 degree day proves where the gaps in insulation are.

I'll dig out my insulated chore gloves soon and see where those stand for this winter.
