Morning All,
Rightly or wrongly and probably wrongly I do not wear gloves out in the field unless it’s cold. I will however need some where I am planning to go over the weekend. Can anyone suggest a pair of very light weight, thin gloves?
Many thanks in advance!

All i have ever used are the Neoprene fishing gloves the ones with the flip back fingers,can be bought pretty cheap from angling shops,Ebay etc etc,pretty lightweight,keep the cold out during the winter months and pretty decent in wet weather as well.

Of course what suits me may not suit someone else but they have always served me well over the years,they last maybe 2 years or so but i always carry a couple of spare pairs with me just incase.

I just use the cheap one's from supermarkets/stores, they have rubber/plastic palms and fingers and the rear has a woven mesh that's breathable. In the cold weather, I put an old pair of fingerless gloves over the cheapies. Works a treat. :thumbsup:

Agree with Daz - the latex ones are brilliant. If you buy in bulk they are about £1 per pair

Are they quite lightweight and close fitting?

Yes they are thick enough to be strong but lightweight too. Mine fit just right but there are lots of sizes. I’ve given a few male friends a pair and none have had an issue with them in this size being too small. They are stretchy.

A pair will last around 6 months

That’s the ones Cath :thumbsup:
I use them for ‘tecting and gardening. Don’t reckon you could beat them for the price.
I also use neoprene gloves on cold days. Like them, nice and thin but keeps the chill off. Plenty at a good price but make sure they’re not too thick.

I use the red / black ones like Daz has put up - from screwfix. Great protection and fit perfectly.
