    The best ones I ever used were American made golfing gloves,
    and they were free. Found on empty beach.
    But, I only used them on dry or just damp sand.
    They lasted me a couple of years.

    I assume they were leather. I never thought about using my old golf gloves. o_O I wouldn't have thought they would've held up in the dirt. I'll have to dig them out and give them a try. (y)

    They were made from a sort of faux leather and were kinda stretchy as well.
    Remembering I never used them in the dirt.

    I get gloves from contractors on job sites a lot. The dark gray/black rubber with red cloth were the best for dexterity, lasted fairly well as long as you weren't handling concrete ruble . I'll have to look but had some others that had Kevlar embedded in the rubber, lasted great but a little stiffer.
