    my boyfriend uses batting gloves. they don't keep his hands too warm during the winter, but they have a good grip.

    I use the quad gloves here http://www.harnessdesigns.com/dayglvs.html I think Hatch has some just like them a little cheaper. The dycem (sp) type stuff will give you some "grip" when you push.

    I use Hatch Style C and ordered from Edmonds:

    I have a degenerative neuromuscular disorder which means weakened limbs but I still have full movement for the most part. The Hatch gloves seem to be holding up when I use the manual chair but they are not very warm when it is cold out. LOL I've gotta get some full fingered gloves too.

    Is anyone using racing gloves for everyday use? I use the top of one hand to push and the palm of the other. My left, the one I use the top of my fingers/hand to push with, needs more padding to prevent the blisters I repeatedly get. It can get really ugly looking from time to time. Suggestions?

    I got a pair of those for xmas not real impressed with them at all. Plus I find that style harder to get on than the ones with the straps. I guess I am just used to the others. I will say no matter which ones you get it will take about a week to break them in.
