I use the general purpose workmen's gloves from Screwfix. Thin enough to feel what you're doing and gives enough protection. They don't keep your hands warm though. I have a pair of El-cheapo skiing gloves for when I'm swinging the coil - nice and toasty ::g

Any type of latex coated multi-purpose/ gardening/building gloves. They are everywhere now.
You can actually get winter versions of these quite cheap online, but might be slightly too thick for detector controls.
The latex coating on the fingers and palms does offer protection when rummaging around in the sand and dirt.

⬆️ As above. But rubber waterproof thin builders gloves as you can wash your hands in streams, sheep troughs etc every so often and it keeps things more comfortable.

I find anything described as waterproof makes your hands sweat and get cold, I've tried neoprene rubber gloves but these are quite restrictive as they grip your hand well and induce finger ache because you have to fight the restriction to hold onto the detector, in the end I went back to knitted and lined "Thinsulate" type gloves, whilst not waterproof they are warm and are not restrictive, plus they are easy to take on and off if you need to adjust your machine or pick up small finds.

Normal use are the PVC coated on the palm and fingers building type .For the cold I picked up a similar pair in the garden centre with a warm fleece lining, by Briars. They seem to do the job!

I always use the cheap coated work gloves for about £1 a pair. But when it's really cold I use ski gloves as they're waterproof and insulated - £5 from Aldi. As the day warms up I revert back to the others.

Palm gloves for normal use £1.38

Builders gloves for tougher damp conditions £1.48

Thermo grip gloves for very cold conditions £2.50

Watertight grip gloves for wet conditions (waterproof) £3.58

PVC knit gloves that are waterproof with cotton lining £1.40

All the above from Toolstation

Ski gloves for the really cold weather cheap pair will do

Gloves are a must to prevent cuts & scratches and most contaminants that you are likely to encounter, there's some nasty stuff that gets put on the fields at times

Whatever gloves you choose to use they are a protection against hidden bugs and buried sharp objects. :(

Folks dont realise the dangers of not protecting their hands until thing go wrong. ;)

Cover up before its to late. ::g

Happy hunting,

For the summer, thin tough gardening gloves, for the winter, these thermal ones. They have a good rubberised waterproof covering with a thermal lining. Cost about £6 off of a well known online site. Briers Ultimate Thermal Gloves, Black,

Gloves are very important even if you only put them on to rummage in the soil.You don't know what is in the ground. I went to my permission during the summer and found approx. one eight of an acre
of galvanised corrugated sheet buried in about 2" of soil. The next time I was going on an outing I picked up my boots except I didn't. I picked up the uppers and the soles stayed on the garage floor! Any chemists out there able to explain how the sheet became so acidic?

That's your better half keeping you at home to stop you disappearing off detecting so you can get on with your chores, gluing them to the floor :)) :))

I had these on today in Scotland, a wee bit on the nippy side here today, for the first 10 minutes I had to pull my fingers out of the glove fingers and clench a fist inside the glove to get the heat back, but after that they were brilliant. Clearing the snow off the coil, digging, wet, muddy, no issues. £7
