I am looking at buying a pair of gloves. A few of the features that I am looking for are:
1. Durability
2. Cut Resistant (Kevlar/Spectra, etc)
3. Leather exterior
I have looked at Hatch and Damascus primairly. I have heard, word of mouth, that Blackhawk gloves are/have been horrible as far as durability.
I appreciate any and all opinions.

Mechanix makes good gloves (mechanix.com).

I have the hellstorm solags, and they have held up prety good. I've had them about 8 months now and been shooting with them 6 or 7 times. I dont have any experience with the kevlar gloves from blackhawk, but unless they are made by a different company and just get the hellstorm name put on them, I would expect the same durability from them too.

Oakley gloves look great. Haven't tried them though.

My Hatch operators are really nice.

I don't think either of these are cut resistant though.

"The Operator?s Kevlar® construction provides twice the cut-resistance of leather as well as heat and flame protection beyond 800?F." Lightfighter site.

I like my Hatch operator gloves also. -Justin

My tan summer wieght Nomex gloves are the best in my book.

But that's just me.
I can't stand thick gloves......

I just saw a pair of the new Oakley gloves, they do look nice.

"I just saw a pair of the new Oakley gloves, they do look nice."

Unfortunately they are too rich for my blood right now. (The world isn't fair HAHA, all the best gear costs too much money.) : )

I'll have to try to forget they exist and enjoy my operators.

I've never seen or used any of their cut resistant models, but I've always been a fan of Hatch gloves. The few pairs I own are really nice, and they didn't break the bank.

Just my .02...
