Default Gloves

I wear bike(fingerless) gloves when I'm hiking because they protect my hands from getting scraped up when I'm scrambling or bushwacking and they keep my hands from getting calloused from my trekking poles. Does anyone else use gloves?

See you on the mountain!

Not yet, but I am going to be getting a pair for those cable crossings on the WCT. I would imagine they would work well if you are hiking with poles as well. I notice sometimes after a very long day of hiking that my hands get a few tender spots.

Don't the fingerless ones give you an odd tan? <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I wonder why I never thought of that before. Great idea! <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I wear full finger bike gloves all the time, my hands are skinny and gets cold fast. My friend didn't and he got blisters from the hiking poles. We also wear our neon bright bike jackets sometimes so we are visible to each other. My friend tends to get ahead of me and he's my moving marker.
No need to buy the fancy shmanshy specialty hike gloves, if there is any.
You can sometimes buy gloves cheap in the cheapo bins at the sport shops.

Its funny - I took a pair of gloves with me on the WCT and didn't pull them out of my pack once. Next year on the WCT I'm going to save the weight. You don't really need gloves for the ladders or the cable crossings. At least neither of us did...
