For fair-weather, the LIFT summer Rigger glove does great. I only wish there were an insulated version for winter.
I had wondered about Mechanix gloves for quite some time before making the purchase of these, Mechanix Coyote Fastfit gloves. With the name, I had thought the company made gloves mostly geared toward those who work in the auto and mechanics world. As it turns out, Mechanix makes gloves for many industries from automotive and safety to tactical and even the oil industry. Their website is not all that easy to navigate if you're unsure of exactly the style of glove you're looking for, however after spending a little time browsing each of the tabs, it was easier to search a type of glove by industry.
