Red wing boots safety toe, as many places require safety toe, but for driving something comfortable. Avoid boots with big heels, they always seem to catch on the truck getting in and out and etc. Gloves I just buy the cheapo leather palm ones that come in a 3 pack. Jacket is Carhartt Ketchikan, waterproof with hood. Anything will work but I've found that spending a bit more seems to pay off in the long run, but not gloves, they get dirty, greasy, worn out so I go for cheap ones I can throw away and have new ones every 3-4 weeks. Its nice to have 2-3 pairs for winter if one gets wet put on dry ones.

Thanks all for the responses. Haven't been on in awhile. This has certainly helped! :)

Nike Football Gloves for me! Super easy to clean because of the slick surface on the palms. Each time after I fuel I wipe them of and you can never tell I just got fuel or did anything with them.

Boots are boots to me, I can wear anything but I do have to have steel toes. Longest ones so far were just some cheap $30 boots from wally world. As for gloves, I go through them a LOT. The longest pair I have had were made from buffalo hide. I can't remember right now but buffalo is either the 2nd or 3rd toughest leather in the world. The biggest surprise to me was the toughest hide in the world is Kangaroo. My gloves were made by Kinco. The biggest surprise I got from them was when it was raining and muddy, the gloves got soaked. After I let them dry they were stiff but I put them on anyhow and after flexing my fingers they were as soft as new. No more cow hide for me, it falls apart when it gets wet.

Carhart gloves are not bad. I wear palladium leather boots . They are sturdy and comfortable + rubber toe protection.
