    so i've only had one pair of gloves since i started gym about a year or so ago and they are getting towards the end of their life and therefore i'm looking for a new pair...i've had a look around and reduced it to three choices...i am on the stronglifts 5x5 so need to do deadlifts, bench press, squats, barbell press, and overhead press regularly among other things just to give you an idea of what the gloves go under...so which one would you go for or do you have any other suggestions??

    What kind of skin allergy? I suffer from serious eczema but manage ok with chalk.

    Your hands get sweaty so you wear gloves. Read that back, ok?

    yeah mine is a mild case of eczema i suppose

    as in they get sweaty and therefore i've no grip on the bar...with gloves i'm able to grip more firmly...i do higher weights now as you would expect after a year so the bar gets difficult to grip
    but seriously just give me your opinion of which one i should choose...no point in convincing me not to buy one

    I would go for option two, look wise. Option three reminds me of batman.
    I use weighed gloves which suck.

    go somewhere like JJB, they are pretty cheap and not bad quality, even if they only last 3 months they are cheap enough to replace, and unlike ebay they can easuly be taken back with no buyer worries

    None. Get chalk. Gloves actually make your grip worse, and chalk prevents the sweating.
