    I've been looking around for suggestions on gloves but didn't find anything I'm looking for preferably finger cut gloves with a lot of grips on the palms for climbing any good suggestions? Also I'm curious as to what you guys use or if you even do use any gloves

    I've been using a pair of Skytech Aria. They're precision work gloves, quite thin and have a lot of grip. Thin enough still be able to use your fingers to near full extent with small objects.
    I recommend you go to any large diy/hardware store. They will have a huge section dedicated to all sorts of gloves for various tasks, and you're almost bound to find something you like. Stay away from anything too thick imo.

    Horses for courses, as they say, the thinner they are, the more you can do (use your camera, etc) the thicker they are the more protection you'll get from sharp things etc.

    Some will suggest cheap ones, some, will suggest fancy ones containing kelvar, Teflon, unicorn skin, satellite tracking, and a built in coffee maker that cost more than the gross national income of Belgium - there is no right answer ;)

    Only you can decide what suits you. :)

    Those thick cotton ones dipped in latex are pretty good...
