I wouldn't say that mechanix gloves are necessarily bad.. I guess it just depends on the work that you are doing. I used to work for my uncle doing construction/demolition and it would not be uncommon of for me to blow out the fingertips of mechanix/mechanix-style work gloves within a week of heavy use. Full leather gloves lasted significantly longer in my experience. I also find that the thinner ventilation-type material on mechanix style gloves generally doesn't protect the hand as well against abrasions from construction debris. Don't get me wrong, mechanix gloves are perfectly suitable for a variety of working conditions.. I just discovered long ago that I prefer leather gloves and I've used them ever since. And it always just seemed silly to me to spend as much money, or sometimes quite a bit more, for the "mechanix" name when they just don't last as long. To each their own I suppose. Regardless of which pair you decide on, see if you can get your employer to reimburse the cost.. many will cover PPE.
I really don't think they're worth the money. I've wore out every pair I've had in a short time. Now if I want that style of glove I just get the knockoffs from Harbor Freight, but I have to say the Mechanics gloves definitely fit better and are more comfortable but they don't last any longer than what I get from HF. If I could get either for free then I'd definitely prefer the real deal but they average about $20 a pair vs $6 at Harbor Freight so when I can get 3 pair for the same price and they last just as long it's not a hard sale.
If you're moving said skid and it happens to scuff the floor is it a skid mark?
