I’ve worn Mechanix gloves at GORUCK events since 2011. At my first event I brought a pair of off-brand gloves and they didn’t hold up so well. After that I tried out Mechanix and never went back. I still have the first pair I bought back in 2011 and they still get use at workouts.
What makes Mechanix gloves so awesome? I have absolutely no idea. They stay on the hand extremely well and create the perfect barrier between your hands and an abrasive log. They provide just the right amount of warmth and protection for most weather situations. I’ve brought a pair (and usually extras) to every GORUCK event since 2011 and have never once regretted that decision.
