I went to walmart to look for a pair of compression gloves for the arthritis in my thumbs. I wasn't going to waste money on a pair online only to have them be worthless. The only pair they had had a chart on the box to see what size you wore. My hand was bigger than the whole box. I couldn't even get my fingers in them let alone my whole hand.

 

I wound up with a pair of fingerless motorcycle gloves. They look funny but they work to keep my hands warmer and still let me use my fingers. .

 

Wonder when I can try a pair of compression gloves in mansized? Has anyone ever used them?

All the reviews I have read on them say they fall apart pretty fast. Maybe if you have arthritis you are supposed to sit quietly

Be careful not to get your compression ratio too high or you won't run on the low octane stuff [coffee] any more.  You'll have to run premium [190 proof]  :rolling:   :poke:

Willie, from what I found online, I'd say we'd go through a pair every couple days when we're hard at it.

I would think that not a cure, but for all around comfort would be heated gloves again depends on what your doing.

I've always found it difficult to almost impossible to work with gloves on.  I've watched other guys working on cars and bikes with Mechanics glove but when I use them I don't like losing some of the feeling of touch.

Never heard of compression gloves, BUT, I DO use the weight lifting gloves at walmart, fingerless and have a hefty padding in the palms for driving Fork Truck. They have two kinds. One has a wrist strap to snug around wrist, don't care for them, usually cut that strap off and that doesn't work well.  the other has a velcro closure strap you can pull over as you wish, real short, they are much better. BUT, again, I can use large and still be fairly tight, and really like the Extra large to get on/off easier, have to remove many times during a night. SO,  maybe they won't fit you either?  The heavy palm pads wear pretty good as I turn the steering wheel all night and pivot it in my palm as I turn. Left one wears out then first, but takes awhile, several weeks.  I have seen HD Biker gloves in the stores but they get big $$ for not so nice construction and don't look like they would be any better. I pay $9.99 for the Wally World ones.

I have never liked the Mechanic's gloves to work in either, not sure how those people can use those. Can't feel and must be hard to put on small fasteners and such. PLUS, the things I handle dirty would crap up a pair in two hours would think and soak in maybe? Who wants to spread the gunk onto other things and tools you work with? I'm not afraid to have blackened hands in daily life, I just tell people I'm a Mechanic and that ends it! Ha! Besides have now found those Citrus and other odd "flavored" hand cleaners really work well when cleaning up. AND, the parts cleaner and Laquer thinner for the Mean stuff!

I use Mechanix gloves when I am working but I do have to take them off an awful lot for small bolts and stuff. And I have gotten caught in an engine before and couldn't get my hand back out. I only wear them to keep my hands movable when it is cold out.

Just because they have the HD logo doesn't make then any better and in a lot of cases they are not nearly as good as the other brand.

Me too I have a hard time wearing gloves trying to pick things up & handle small items. My son works at Amazon & he wears these gloves. I got me some & they work great. I can pick up a coin, start a nut on a bolt etc. There material handling gloves. They won't protect from real cold weather but they work great when its not too cold out.
