Leather gloves in the winter, any good army surplus store for those, about £10-£12
Buy a leather balm to rub in when they have dried out after cleaning and they will stay soft and supple for next time.
Thin builders gloves in the summer, buy ones with a "CUT" rating to protect from sharp objects in the soil.

Cheap builders gloves £1.50 local market. Last ages and bin them when too muddy or can't be bothered to wash them. I find leather get wet and once dries go rock hard and are too uncomfortable.

this is a timely post D174812H . I'm on the lookout for some coated gloves which will be both dirt resistant and warm. Screwfix has some on special offer at £5.99 but they're only available in large and upon trying them on, they really are large! Toolstation had some similar ones which were cheaper, but hi viz yellow, so I gave them a miss.

I use industrial safety gloves.
Thin, you can feel your findings well in the soil. Also smooth to were and use, and strong and save. Protecting against nails, glass, sharp metal, poisones liquids and oils.

Tried loads of types and then got a free pair of these with something else I bought. Will not be changing now - these are absolutely brilliant, last ages, keep you safe, wash well. I've bought some cheap thermal fingerless gloves to go over them if it gets mega cold.

I use the screwfix thermal ones for cold mornings at work and on the field. Ideal for them frosty mornings but have to change to thinner ones half way through the morning as they get far to hot on the hands.

just picked up a few pairs of these
SKYTEC ARGON THERMAL GRIP GLOVES
Large. 60% nylon, 40% HPT foam construction with HPT foam-coated palm. Silicone-free. Warm, soft lining designed for comfort whilst maintaining dexterity and flexibility.
Thermal insulation to -50°C.
For General Handling
Elasticated Cuffs
Breathable Back
Seamless Lining
Wing Thumb
Machine Washable
they come in Medium, Large and what you do not always see in this type of thermal glove XL.
well they are now reduced in Screwfix and are £3.99 a pair down from £5.99
they are nice and warm, and perfect for a cold morning of detecting.
this is my opinion on these gloves, as i prefer to have warm hands, tried and tested
