    I need to find a pair of gloves that I can used while making paracord stuff. My hand are pretty much raw after a big order and I can make anything for a couple days. Please help!

    I use mechanics gloves. Plenty of dexterity with those and they keep from getting sore hands when you tie really tight knots.

    I like to use a natural leather glove, seems to fit tight enough and thin enough to have some feeling.

    I usually just go to one of the big 3 home stores and try them on, they all seem to fit a little different. Then I might buy 2 or three of the same because the next year you never find the same thing.

    I tried Mechanix once. I love them for other things but couldn't get used to them when tying. So I just tear my hands up lol.

    Some mechanics with just the finger tips cut off would be nice.

    No gloves for paracord. I just finished a order yesterday and when my hands started burning I just took a break then got right back to it.

    I don't use gloves. I just suck it up like a man should.


    Just kidding :D , I use a pair of knitted polyester gloves. Cord slides on them nice and they are just thick enough to provide some cushion around the inner joints which is where I always go raw. This is the pair I own and are actually liners for other gloves I have.

    I don't use gloves for making things out of Paracord, but then again, I don't make money off of it either. :)

    I Use Gorilla Grip gloves at work. They are the rubber dipped knit gloves. They work well to give grip and maintain dexterity, but no cushion at all. I have enough trouble tying knots with my bare fat fingers. Gloves would just make it worse, I feel.

    Maybe some day the calluses will get thick enough to make my wife cringe in pain when I touch her... But it hasn't happened yet.

    Good luck.

    Vin your first sentence sounds pretty convincing but then read the first sentence of your first paragraph "knitted polyester gloves" LOL!

    I'm just messing with you Vin.
