By far, these Ironclad FRAMER (3 exposed fingers) gloves, have lasted the longest for me.
The one caveat is that the additional layer on the palm comes apart fairly quickly. But it doesn't matter! There is still another layer under it. But that's not what exposes my hand to injury. It's the fingers coming apart at the seams that always ruins a pair of gloves for me.
I usually get 3 months, if I stretch it, out of a pair of gloves. I easily get 6 months out of these on average. Sure, there are rare occasions where something drastic shortens the life of any glove. But we're talking about it NOT being the crappy material or shoddy construction right from the manufacturer.
As for the other's I've tried: IRWIN (2nd best), Custom Leathercraft, Youngstown, Handyman, CLC, Mechanix, along with the standards from HomeDepot and Lowe's.
As a point of preference- these gloves end prior to my wrist. The CLCs went up onto my wrist, which I did not like. Neither Velcro lasted, but I didn't care about that.
I'm a remodel contractor, always wear my gloves. So that's 8 he's or more per day
First couple weeks they were good (although much hotter), and provided good protection.
The complaint I have is the first time they got wet from rain I hung them and dried at room temp overnight. They have now shrunken so 2 of my fingers don’t fit.
I was actually able to machine wash the Ergodynes every week in cold water and hang to dry and never had this shrinkage issue.
Not sure I’ll be buying again.
