Looking for some good mid-to-lightweight flying gloves.
Been a bit nippy lately out there in the Cub, so I've been wearing my Mountain Hardwear glove liners to keep my hands warm. They feel great, the problem is gripping the stick. There's something about the composition of the synthetic gloves that makes them feel like someone dipped the stick in KY jelly. That is to say...slippery. LIke a golf ball on a satin sheet.
I also read an article lately about some guy who uses Nomex gloves, even provides them to his passengers. Fire is of course a concern-- don't wanna have my fingers burned to nubs-- but the Nomex offerings kinda suck. What about wool?
Tried these on today. A nice-fitting pure wool glove, but just a bit on the thick side. Here in NW Oregon we consider cold to be less than 30F. Obviously gloves for the northern winters are going to be more substantial. They did have some light rubbery stuff on the fingers and palms for grip. I suppose you could find a pair of wool gloves, and lay your palm in a tray of plasti-dip (for tool handles)?
