My advice: buy several gloves and rotate them. They last quite a bit longer that way.

Don't think anything last longer than the Callaway Warbird. Haven't tried the new one in the gold package but the older one in the orange package last a long time.(can still get these at places like walmart/target)

My faves are the FJ Weather softs.....2 to a pack for about $18.   Like the feel, heel pad, and price.   Last OK but the 2 last me long enough for the price.

The Nike Dura Feel and Elite Feel are the best I have found.  The Dura Feel can be had for somewhere around $20 for a 2 pack.

Ditto on this.  I use titleist gloves and have around 6 hanging on my bag that I go through throughout the round.  I never wait until one gets saturated or even really wet with sweat.  I will have the same gloves on there for months.  As soon as one starts to get a little crusty, it gets relegated to practice and warmup status, and a new glove enters the rotation.

consider using a premium rain glove..........i buy a couple of packs of footjoy rain gloves every now and again and use the left glove as my regular glove.........yes, the pack is more pricey than buying a normal golf glove, but rain gloves are considerably more durable and afford just as much tackiness.    i think JB holmes is on to this trick.  from a performance and cost standpoint, there is no downside.    the only issue is whether a black glove makes you feel goofy.

For gloves I use Mastergrip.  I think their tour glove $13.95, but it is also buy one get one free.  Holds up great.

I'd vote for the WeatherSof 2-pack as well, especially this time of year.

I would also highly recommend a product called Dry Hands.  It's a jell you put on your hands before you play.  Does a great job of stopping sweaty hands during your round, which helps your gloves last a lot longer.

The pro at my course ordered some gloves from bag-boy. I was a bit hesitant to try it, but one day when i just needed a new glove, I got one. Now, I play sometimes up to 6-7 rounds aweek, and these gloves will last along time, holding their grip..Since March, I have gone through two. I just recently replaced the second one. He was out, so I just purchased a cheap one to hold me over until he gets more, but they are really great gloves.

Bionic Technologies.  If you don't like the thicker glove, look at the thinner Pro model.  I'm going on my SECOND season with one glove.

Though they are a bit pricey, I found that the Kakadu gloves from Australia are the longest-lasting gloves and they perform in wet conditions as well as regular dry condition use.  They are made from Kangaroo hide, just as soft and supple as the cabretta leather gloves but a lot stronger.  Do a google search for the website address--they ship very quickly.

+1 on the Footjoy Weathersoft. As others have said, just don't let them get too saturated. Current glove has lasted about 3 months with no real signs of wear, and I use it several times a week to play or practice.

Take it off between shots and for putting, which helps keep it somewhat dry here in florida.

Also, since I have changed my swing, I go through far less gloves!

I agree. I've been using these for years. My hands don't get real sweaty, so I don't know how that impacts how long they last, but they last a long time for me, usually at least a year. I can usually find a 2 pack on sale somewhere for $12-$14. When I see them cheap I buy them. I try to keep three in the bag.

Dito..This is the first Bionic glove I have had and its just amazing how long its lasted. Ive been using it all year for practice and play and just had to replace it about 2 weeks ago. Amazingly, its still in good shape in all the areas where you hold the club. The problem is that it tore up around the top by the velcro strap at the spot where I grab it to pull it up on my hand.

I use the cheapest ones at walmart (its a knock off brand). Bought 3 gloves at $4.99 a piece, typically rotate between 2 of them every 5 or 6 holes because of the humidity where I live.  They have performed just as well as my old Mizuno ones, since after a few rounds/sweat they all end up looking/feeling the same.

a golf store i frequent carry blemished FJ gloves.  all of them are $9.  sciflex, weather sofs, stasof.

i love the stasof and only buy those.  the only blemish i can even see on these gloves is they have 2 small "xx" under the FJ logo on the velcro strap.

they last a while and cant beet the feel of that glove.
