I know this topic has been covered repeatedly in the past but ... you never know what new ideas people might have. For the past several seasons I have been using Hestra Trigger mitts, because I like the form factor (gaiters, trigger mitts, and the big thick wrist straps are all to my liking) but they are not particularly durable ... but I have yet to find the glove that IS durable so that seems like a moot point. This year I am switching to some new Black Diamond gloves that are similar but seem like they may be warmer — trying to figure out how I am going to prevent myself from shredding them in under a day. I know a lot of people like the THOR gloves, some people are using disposable leather (uninsulated/work?) over-gloves that protect their regular gloves (I went looking for these but I could not find them, anyone have a link???). The rest of us seem to mostly rely upon slathering the palms of their gloves in plasti-dip/tool-dip/shoe-goo etc etc etc ... The plasti-dip thing seems to work but it makes your gloves really stiff and looks kind of gross. Has anyone come up with any clever new way of dealing with this that isn't totally ridiculous? I hate buying a new pair of gloves and slathering them in junk and making them super stiff, or not slathering them in junk and buying a new pair a day later. Any new approaches to this?
