Best Gardening Gloves! I got these hand-me-down welding gloves that I use for cutting (oily, cold) metal at work - and gardening at home. Love the gauntlet style as I can wear with a long-sleeved shirt for full coverage (from poisonous weeds, for instance). Dirt does not get inside them because of the high edge. No matter how gross I get them, the leather just shrugs it all off and stays supple. So great.
