Default Driving gloves?

Does anyone wear driving gloves for daily driving?

When I drive, the gloves come off.

If you watched the "not-for-public-consumption" film one of the attendees (the Director, not me) from last years event made, which I forwarded to you and others attending this year, you'll know there's at least one. Hint: it's at the beginning of the "film".

not me, but my missus wanted them (fingerless gloves)to keep the sun off the back of her hands in one car. I got her some leather fingerless gloves from a weight lifting place which were apparently pretty good.

I wear them. They look and feel awesome. Plus, I don't want the steering wheel ruined from my rough hands.

I even wear them for posting to the forum.

Not for daily driving but I do wear them for long, fast trips. Never felt the need to use the heated steering wheel but would appreciate one that cooled.

Nope, I have to wear gloves (and all the other protective gear) when I ride my motorcycles so one of the big draws driving the 'vert is that I can do it in shorts and sandals! ....no gloves for me in the car. :-)

Leather gloves with a Thinsulate lining are my everyday winter gloves, but I also use them with the top down on cool days. Like yesterday. And this morning.

I can't keep up with gloves from winter to winter so no way I'd want to have to keep up with a pair for driving. Now that I have my motorcycle license and have gloves for that, I think it's going to take all my glove memory for those. Besides, in the car I like the feel of the steering wheel (plus mine is heated so now I may not even need winter gloves for the week or so they are needed around here).

The black satin ones that go up to the elbows are the most practical; you dont have to take them off to operate the touchscreen, where the heated steering and seats controls are.

I seem to remember the subject of driving gloves coming up on here once before a long time ago. It resulted in a few people being banned for their comments / opinions. LOL

Well, that didn’t take long. Between Graham’s posting and Queen and Country’s posting - those Brits - it didn’t take long for this thread to take a turn (for the worse or just weird?).

You had to ask Vince?

Wow, post simple question early morning, gone bonkers by noon. I will reply to a few that may hold the info on the purpose of the post. I do appreciate the creative enthusiasm of our group though (I think).

Ah, a fellow New Yorker maybe with some insight. What type/brand do you use?

And for anyone else that may have a suggestion. Graham?
