So far I've used Radnor, Miller, BSX and Tillman. Radnors are just super cheap. The rest are good.

Welcome to the forum, might want to specify if your TIG, MIG or stick (SMAW) welding. Even then big difference welding below 100 amps or above.

I do mostly TIG below 200 amps and like a thin glove like THIS

Everything Tillman. Just like the way they fit and feel and since I'm a student I get a discount at my LWS on certain pairs of gloves. And after use by me and my forgetful mind they are black and still are in excellent condition. About every day I use them I pick up the damn hot metal and burn it.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

I picked up a pair of riggers gloves from my local hardware store when I first started welding - they were $10.

The idea was that I'd just use them until I found some 'proper' gloves, but I'm on my third pair now. They are soft, fit well and give me plenty of dexterity for Tig welding. Bargain.

My tig gloves are at the top with the thin one for the filler rod. The thick tillmans are used for everything else.

I've used Tillman gloves longer than I can remember of one style or another depending on what process I'm doing. I mainly stick with the 24cxl. Another reason I like the Tillman is that their extra large gloves are actually extra large and I can comfortably wear them all day.
I don't know it all but I'm working on it.

I've always used Tillmans for Tig welding, but the last time I bought a pair of gloves I tried Millers and I will have to say they are quite comfortable.
