Read reviews on the NRS on REI and NRS website. Some mention not very durable.

How about these gloves? Not really ultralight but they would be durable.

David, thanks.
I also found them on Amazon for $4.99 (w/free shipping for me), I ordered me a dozen!

every quickstop and hardware store carries the white string gloves around here.

They are not warm enough for all situations by themselves, but often are and save my
good gloves and mittens from hard use. You can even layer them up if you get some loose

durability of Neoprene.... on 11/20/2012 09:14:50 MST Print View

I seem to go through a couple of pairs of these a year, I don't keep track of how many days. I'd say they last about as long as a pair of fleece gloves. NRS does make other models, some with reinforced palms and fingers that would probably last much longer. I can't bring myself to give up the dexterity though.

I did try some much cheaper neoprene gloves from glacierglove, and they were trashed in two days of climbing. I decided that the NRS ones were more economical in the long run. I've given in to gloves being a consumable item.

Neoprene as an insulating layer on 11/20/2012 14:24:33 MST Print View

I've used neoprene gloves for sea kayaking and duck hunting (decoy handling). They must be reinforced first with Shoe Goo at wear areas, like inside thumb-to-forefinger and fingertips.

THEN put a size XL synthetic work glove over them to protect them.
