My personal summary: Nobody seems to have found particularly long lasting gloves. Cold weather favorite seems to be nitrile or latex under (or over?) leather, some use welding gloves. Most suggest just going through cheap leather gloves, possibly buying them in bulk.

Follow-up question: Do kangaroo work gloves exist? For motorbike use kangaroo leather is advertised as more abrasion resistant than cow.

And then kangaroo firefighter’s gloves. Maybe wood burners will feel better when moving their burning artisanal firewood?
