Home Depot Gloves as alternatives

Am I late to the Rodeo? I saw these and saw them as a great alternative to expensive cycling full finger gloves. Both the 3 pack and the single with the adjustable wrist are $9.00

The stretchy Head running gloves at Costco are essentially perfect cycling gloves and cost about the same.

Sure are. I use them (well, them as in any generic mechanics type gloves, not HD specific) as long finger bike gloves for cool weather riding exclusively. I like the pull on ones far more than the wrist straps for said purposes.

I have not bought cycling specific gloves in over 12 years. Just cut the fingers off and you have summer gloves.

I have the orange backed black palmed gloves.
While they are not waterproof they are reasonably warm and
that orange stands out quite well. Mine don't look like construction gloves either.

I want a pair that are all nylon with a reinforced palm...that could be used wet. The "pleather" palm on most would seem to not dry well after getting wet.

the function of saving the picking gravel out of the palms of your hands , when you fall, the primary reason you put on gloves ?

It was part of the reason they were adopted..

I am ashamed to be on the same forum with you noobs. Can you not see that none of those gloves bear the logo of influential apparel companies? How can they be good if they only cost three times as much as the material, shipping and labor is worth, instead of thirty-three times as much?

Gloves for padding and protection? Philistine! Gloves are worn to have extra area to display the logos of the overpriced companies you support.

I usually only wear gloves during the winter. Generally bare hands during the summer.

So, winter gloves are ski gloves. I snagged a pair of goretex ski gloves the other day, and whew, that made quite a difference in the rain

I have a pair of rubber/plastic grip, knit back yellow reflective work gloves... somewhere. But, they were only marginal at keeping the hands warm, and had a bit of a plasticky feeling.

One of the big issues here in the PNW is rain protection, so whatever I choose has to not degrade in rain, and best if they are water resistant.

I think I've tried work gloves in the early fall and late spring.

Yep! The lightly insulated work gloves are my go-to for cool weather riding (25/30F to 45/50F). The hi-viz is a nice touch for off-season rides when there are not necessarily many cyclists out on the roads.

Don't worry - I've shelled out plenty of money for good winter gloves. And for some reason I prefer actual cycling gloves for summer riding.

I've been using the Home Depot work gloves as the OP posted for a few years now during the winter months. They work great in the 30f-50F degree temps on winter mornings here in Southern California. The half-finger gloves at HD don't work as well, so in summer I use the terri-cloth-backed house brand sold at Performance Bike (they were 1/2 price just after Christmas so I bought 4 pairs ).

cycling gloves?

whatever it takes to get them outside to ride i spose. i like a dark brown cotton glove, sold in bundles of 5 or more for a few bucks.

now if i buy a 20 grand carbon bike, that is when i will need high end cycling gloves for some reason or any reason.

I wear gloves about half the time, for grip and for protection if I go down. About half the time I've gone down, I've been glad I had them. I don't need padding; in fact I don't want padding. I keep my eyes open, and sometimes find them in the weight lifting section of the sporting goods stores. Like me, weight lifters want grip but not padding. The gloves at the department stores, while cheap, tend to have too much gel padding for my tastes.

This thread is making me feel bad. For decades I only used assorted generic (and either cheap or free) long-fingered gloves for cool/cold weather riding. But today there was a sale at a local sports store and my bike club had given me a gift certificate there so I opted to buy some brand name cycling gloves.

Now, instead of enjoying my new purchase, I read this thread and am reminded that even the discounted price was probably inflated by at least a factor of 4 or 5.

No ... you took one for the team. Your bike club buds will think you appreciated their generosity. It shows you are unselfish and compassionate. Wear them with pride.

Young guys might consider doing themselves a favor by wearing gloves with proper padding.

You might not need it now but your joints and nerves might thank you some day.

I was gonna say, this is great and all, and the money saved is nice, but where is the padding? All of my gloves, which happen to be cycling gloves, have much needed (for me) padding in them. That is why I buy them, because they are what I need for my hands to ride comfortably on longer rides.

Good score! IMO, some of the best cycling gear is not intended to be cycling gear at all. Cycling gloves don't need padding...after 30 miles or so. And if you need padding...weight lifting glove are an option that are much cheaper than cycling gloves.

My padding is the "cork" tape on my handlebars.
The only time I ever needed padded gloves was after shattering my left wrist.
It was super-sensitive to shock for about two years.
