    I think this is kinda on topic, I was bopping around the Miller site, saw a blurb about their new gear, gloves, coats, etc. Anyone have any experience with them, how do they stack up to others out there? Is it just advertising the Miller name when you're working, or do they make good stuff? Is the price comparable to other brands out there?

    FWIW;
    i am still using the first set of gloves miller sent me and although not nearly as prity, they are still holding up great. so unforchenetly no excuse to buy new ones. they do not shrink up with heat like the other brands and i have been working them verry hard. i usualy use a heat shield on my left hand to protect the glove to keep it from shrinking up and becomeing deformed and useless. thinking that not a fair test of millers gloves and wanting them to get there money's werth out of the test pair they sent me i have not been using the heat shield. and yet the gloves are still holding strong and are not deformed. i am verry happily suprised by this. great gloves, i will spend the $$ to get the same kind again. well if they ever weare out that is. well werth the $$

    Welding leathers

    Normally i grab my denim button up shirt and the welding gloves , when I'm doing over head , outside welding or a lot of hot welding i grab my "Revco Black Stallion DuraLite Premium Grain Pigskin Welding Coat" It 1/2 the weight of cowhide leathers and a better fit.

    I have tried to get the Miller welding jacket but all my LWS didnt know Miller had welding jackets and gloves I cant find the gloves in stock or the jacket on the net and have won some Ebay auctions on these items and was told there all backordered so i was sent my $$ back What a b.i.t.c.h .

    For gloves i have always used the Tillman 750 elkskin gloves but i have found local the Hobart welding gloves that are like the Miller gloves but are selling for $25. , Great gloves but I'm not going to keep spending $25. on the Hobart ones.

    I did ask on the Miller gloves thread if the Hobart and Miller gloves were the same but got the shaft on any answer.

    I would have to agree on the pigskin jackets being top quality. The Revco Black Stallion DuraLite Premium Grain Pigskin Welding Coat i bought was around $80. but is well worth the moneys. No luck on the Miller items.

    NOTE TO MILLER! Whats the deal with your jackets and gloves !?!?!?
    I want but cant seem to get.

    try cyber weld
    MIG gloves $17
    http://store.cyberweld.com/mimiggl.html
    MIG/stick heavy duty $20
    http://store.cyberweld.com/mihedumiwegl.html
    TIG gloves $19
    http://store.cyberweld.com/mitigwegl.html
    metalworker gloves $15
    http://store.cyberweld.com/mimegl.html
    they also have the combo jacket $75 that seems a bit high even for miller. no way i could aford it.
    and the combo sleves $19 more realistic $

    keep in mind most say the gloves seem a size smaller than most other brands so you might want to order 1 size larger than you normaly would. i got a med. and think its a great fit.

    I'll have to see if they have stock "on-hand" and not the backordered sales.

    The welding jacket I'm looking for is the full miller welding jacket http://store.cyberweld.com/mileweja.html

    I'd like to check out the Miller metal working gloves .......tillmans are soft and loose and might last 4 hours. I use the ****ies black and brown gloves now ($15.) and i get a good 2-4 weeks out of them before the front two fingers get holes in the end.

    The Hobart welding gloves are great but high $$ , I'd like to know if there built like the Miller mig or the heavy duty stick gloves.

    WOW!! thats a good looking jacket, but again out of my $$ range. bummer they didnt let me test it too.
    do you have a pic of the hobart gloves ?? i have never seen them but would suspect they are the same.
    i realy like the miller metal work gloves,they are holding up much better than i expected and way better than the craftsmen or other localy available ones that run $15-$20. you should give them a try, they have extra leather in the needed spots to help them hold up. mine are still good to go.

    they dont look the same as the miller on the back but i will have to take a look at the front (or palm side ) of the millers to be shore about the palm.
    get some millers you will like them.
    give cyber a call. some one must have some. as for LWS they have to chose to cary them miller cant make them. although i supose sending free displays would help but could realy be a high $$ investment that would likely cause a price increses. best to just request your local dealer order them for you or ask them about carying them. one place i went to idnt even know they were available or even existed, i showed him mine and he realy liked them but he cant order as he is a chain store with nopower to order.. keeping in mind most chain stores dont order there own stuff so they have to just see what the purchesing guys send, cant hurt to ask localy.
