In a past life, I was issued a couple pair of "official" military flight
gloves. The green Nomex kind with the thin, soft leather palms. The gloves,
and the Nomex long-johns, were considered expendable and handed back to me
when I turned in the rest of my flight gear.
The palms of the gloves show some wear and tear -- little nicks here and
there in the leather -- but are otherwise serviceable. I can push any
button, flip any switch, and turn any knob on the instrument panel while
wearing them. In the cockpit they are reasonably warm. Outside, in wind,
they need additional help. I don't frequent surplus stores, but if you can
find a pair of those gloves they are my reccomendation.

You can find these leather-palmed Nomex gloves at Brigade Quartermaster's.
You can get them in black, tan, green with black leather palms and green
with light grey leather palms. web page showing them:

all good info--I like the Air Force Nomex gloves myself. IT's hard to claw
your way out of a wreck if your hands are on fire.----Mac

Agreed, but I'm a cheapskate with cheap suede welding gloves. Tried on a few
different ones at my local toolshop and found a really comfortable bright
red pair, just the thing to wear in my old Hovey Delta Bird!
