It is extremely hard to find a pair of gloves that will work for many different kinds of projects. I usually had to carry two or three pairs for different things. I am an irrigation technician, so my hands will be exposed to dirt, mud, water, pipes, electrical wires, my field computer, notepad, etc. No glove can be perfect for all of those things, but this one comes close. It dries out quickly after being soaked by water, and will not be mangled like leather gloves. It is less prone to smell bad after working all bay since the material is so thin. Though it is thin, it provides great protection, while still being able to "feel" what you are working on. I can even type on the computer with the gloves still on even after they got a little wet. I don't recommend trying this though - haha (disclaimer).
If you compare price with durability, these gloves put the competition to shame. Don't waste $20 on a pair of fancy looking gloves that will wear out as fast or faster than these. You will be happy with your purchase if you decide to buy these.
-- Really the only thing that I dislike about these gloves is that the material between the index finger and the thumb is rather shortened, so if and when the glove does begin to wear out, this will most likely be the first place it will develop a hole. I try to keep a different pair in each of my tool bags to correlate with different work tasks. The pair in my electrical bag seems to wear out faster at the finger tips since I use my fingers more for splicing wires, and holding screws, etc. The pair with my shovels and hand tools wears out faster between the index and thumb. These are also not recommended if you are going to handle hot metal or use a torch for sweating copper. Please! Use the right gloves for the job you are doing.
