    Funny you should post this today. I just bought a pair of Stihl anti-vibration gloves this morning.
    Just got finished cutting, used them for a few hours. They work quite well, the padding is quite thick and
    feel a little funny at first, but after you start using them they were fine and don't really notice them.
    I did some cutting 2 weeks ago with regular gloves and the vibration made my hands sore.
    No problems using the gloves.

    I use the same gloves. I got mine from ebay. They have almost no insulation value so I don't use them in the winter.

    I also have the Stihl AV gloves, and hey work very well to dampen vibrations. I also use them with trimmers and blowers. As mentioned, they don't keep your hands warm in winter, and they don't have any top-of-hand cut protection.
