Original Mechanix Gloves
Good Fitting Gloves for General Use
I don't do any work specifically on autos but I do a fair amount of different things around the house and I wanted gloves that fit better than standard work gloves. These are a great deal - they fit well, they have good grip and are well made.
Definitely a good deal, especially right now when they're on sale.

Great gloves to help protect hands from nicks, scratches and burns. Excellent fit. Can easily pickup and adjust small screws, nuts, etc.
This is the second set I've owned. First set lasted me a year.

These gloves have so many different uses. If you are working on the car, doing any sort of construction work they can be awesome to have. I've got poor circulation to my fingers and when I'm doing stuff outside in the colder months these are a must have. They can keep your fingers warm while still maintaining a very high level of dexterity. Last month I saw a picture of US Navy SEALs wearing these gloves during operations in Afghanistan so that'll give you an even greater idea of the versatility these gloves have.

Great for the DIYer
Tough gloves, in extreme, daily use, wore them out in 3 monthes, For the average DIYer, they should last a long time.

Well Worth Picking Up
I passed by these many times, and then received a pair for christmas. I tried them out for the sake of the person who gave them to me, and wow was I surprised! These gloves are comfortable, fit well, allow great dexterity (you can still pick up little washers and nuts) and yet are very tough, able to protect your hands from heat (not extreme), sharp edges, rough surfaces and even vibrations from powertools like palm sanders. Now I never work without them, no matter what I am doing. I find the finger tips can wear out after about 6 months or so, but for $9 (if you get them on sale) you've well received your money's worth by then. I just wait till they are on sale and buy a few packs so that I always have a new pair ready every six months when I need.

Best one to date!
The original! Best glove the have made to date.
I have tied all the others, and this one stands the test of time.
The other fancy ones with all the padding are good, but do not last as long as these.
Also with these if they don't fit you perfect, just wet them and put them back on for a few minutes, and they will form to your hand like a custom fit!

You Need These
I've always loved these gloves. Working on your car these definately come in handy. They're tight-fitting so they don't get in the way of your work and very durable. They're also nice to have if you're working on a vehicle that hasn't completely cooled down yet!
