    I don’t fully understand the phenomenon of sun gloves

    Not only is it less sunscreen I need to bring, remember to apply, etc.. (goes for DEET too if permithrin-treated), I tend to treat gloves as added protection in a number of different ways, tending to get a pair with synthetic leather palms.  Also acts like a baselayer for fleece and waterproof gloves/mitts if need be.  Truly multi-purpose IMO.

    After a decent sized trip, I’ll hand wash my sun gloves in some Dr B’s with water, and wring a lot of grey out in the dirty water.

    I find the cheap cotton inspection gloves from Al Express are more comfortable than going bare-handed, especially when using trekking poles. They seem a bit cooler and protect my hands from drying sun and wind.

    I have sleeves on my shirt that are long enough to go over my hands

    Velcro strip to tighten around my wrist when I want to use my hands

    sun and bug protection

    coverage by shirt or gloves is more effective than bug spray or sun screen

    Jerry,

    Your method sounds perfect for hands.
