What gloves do you guys wear when hunting thick terrane, I wear really thin gloves so I can reload at the sacrifice of my hands, is there something thin that doesn't let briars through. We don't have dogs so we hunt by going into the thickest path we

    I don't generally wear gloves when I am walking unless it's extremely cold. Then I will wear thin wool or fleece gloves which don't provide much protection in briars. I bet a pair of Mechanix gloves would do wonders for you. They are thin leather and hold up to all kinds of abuse.

      From what I learned not only from hunting but also my career that gloves are predominantly always in the way when you need to actual feel or grip something. That being said the best of all evils I've found is Mechanix gloves seem to be the best. Nowadays they make them with all this extra knuckle savers and rubber grip areas, which would be great for brush to save your outer hands. With the suede finish inside, it would probably be hard to snag or rip, and if you get them wet they dry fairly quickly, and are machine washable. As for in the cold, they hold their own with keeping the bitter freeze off your hands while walking into your stand or until you can throw your hands in your waist muff.

        I don't need bowhunting gloves, I'm looking for something to stop thorns, the place we go grouse hunting is very thick and has poison thorns that sting really bad.

          I just saw these in a magazine of Popular Mechanics. Mechanix M-pact 4x gloves. Seems to be what everyone wants to have, leather for grip, rubber for ability to not get caught on the brush, suede inside, and mesh for breathability.

            I keep a pair of unlined leather gloves in my vest that I'll wear as needed. I know some who wear batting gloves which seems to blend dexterity and protection pretty well.
