    Looking for new shooting/dring gloves

    I have been using the oakley lightweight gloves or one of the light mechanix gloves. I am looking for something else as the oakleys seem to lack grip and the mechanix seem to start to slough pretty quickly.
    Any suggestions?

    PIG gloves are my favorite. I like the Deltas the best, theyíre a bit more snug than the originals and I like that they donít have the velcro closure.

    Outdoor Research, like their "ironsight" gloves, if they fit you. I have very large hands, and they did not fit me. But I have heard excellent reviews of durability in past.
    Fit should be a bit tighter than Mechanix and some of them have rubberized texture on the palms for grip.

    I'll second this, I love my SKD PIG gloves. Admittedly, I go through a pair or two a year because they are my patrol gloves. Still running the Alphas for the padded knuckle.

    I got to go with SKD PIGS too. They make great golf gloves.

    Iím thinking about getting a pair. How grippy are they? Do you think they offer the dexterity they are advertising? I donít like thick gloves but am looking for a warmer option.

    Thank you.

    Baseball batting gloves can be had cheap and work nicely. Home Depot makes a "Firm Grip" glove that like too. These are cheap gloves that you will wear out in due time, but replacing is cheap and if you don't like them, your out <$20 and can use for other purposes. I don't like a heavy gloves for handguns, for AR's I can wear Mechanix or other nicer gloves.

    These are not warm options.

    Thanks. I will look into a pair of baseball gloves and pickup a set of the Outdoor research ones if none of the baseball ones work.

    I think the dexterity is solid and theyíre definitely more grippy than all of my other Pig gloves (havenít ordered a new pair in probably about two years though so I donít know if they updated the design there). I have a few other gloves to compare them to but Iím not trying to go out in the cold unless I have to do it may be a while before I know which I like best. They seem great so far though.
