Dollars per ounce, gloves have got to be one of the most expensive climbing purchases out there. But nothing beats a great glove!

I've been a die-hard Bald Eagle Mechanic glove wearer for at least 12 years now. I even brought them to AK with backup pairs being just more of the same. 

I've enjoyed climbing in Black Diamond Punishers and some random OR gloves (not the Alibi series).

What are some other gloves you folks absolutely swear by, Cheap-o or not?

If you're interested

Mechanic Gloves (Bald Eagle or Majestic) - version shown is the waterproof, not as good as the regular style

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
