Gloves are indispensable. 

  Do you wear gloves in the backcountry or on the trail?

I am finding that more often I am wearing gloves. 

At last year's Washington State Search and Rescue (SAR) conference one of the survival instructors commented that a serious cut to the hand can be very debilitating. 

 Nothing can ruin a hike quicker than a gash on the palm of one's hand. 

For spring, summer, and fall hikes I like doe skin gloves.  As the weather cools polyester liners are very helpful.  Goat skin gloves around camp are wonderful.
