do yourself a favor and don't! I used to wear mechanics gloves, and as you would expect I went down and they did pretty much no good, the thin leather burns right through, I would have saved myself a lot of pain and injury if I would have had my padded racing gloves, my nuckles were tore the f up, muy left hand had several bones broke on the back of it, and my right wrist was serverely broke and battered, probably wouldn't have saved the broke bones, but it would have been a whole lot less painful without the rash under the casts.
