    Default Deerksin or Kidskin for Tig welding?

    Deerskin vs. Kidskin Tig gloves

    Which is more flexible / supple and allows for greater dexterity?

    Neither.

    You need to seek out the rare (and expensive)
    Uber flexible "best in class"

    Black squirrel scrotum gloves.

    It will make you such a good welder, that you won't even need a helmet anymore.

    I never liked deerskin ones I tried. My preference is Tillman 1338 (goatskin).

    I use Tillman 24 kidskin gloves. They run big.... I use size M, though all my other work gloves are large

    I’d think about the damn heat not just dexterity- aluminum?

    I use Tillman goatskin. Plenty of dexterity just watch out for hot stuff.

    Wear whatever I want on my left hand holding the torch and nothing on my right hand feeding filler. Have started wearing nitrile gloves on both hands off and on depending on what I'm doing. I do not recommend doing what I do.
