So here I am outfitting my gear and waiting for spring, and I come across a hiking picture in Backpacker magazine of a guy wearing cool finger less gloves. While part of me hears my dads advice that gloves are good for two things; "wiping your butt and getting lost", the other part of me, (the James Bond/Bear Grylls side) makes me think I need to add them to my gear load out for general outdoor use. So....the hunt is on, finger less or full? Goat skin or cordura? Biking gloves or climbing? I have no clue where to jump first on the subject so I thought the vast pool of experience here could teach me a few things. Let me know what you use or what you've found useful in the past. Pictures are excellent too!
