Vibration-absorbing gloves?

Anyone know of a good glove that absorbs vibration? Sorbothane or similar?
Neighbor brought me a leaf blower (I gave him a Honda lawnmower recently.) Works great, but it vibrates my hands so much that they swell and itch. My edger does the same thing.

The best gloves I have found for shooting handguns were Mechanix.

Go to any local bicycle shop and they will have a good selection of gloves that are designed to absorb vibration.

Mechanix Impact Pro. They cost like $25 a Lowes. I use them for shoing becauze they have really great palm and finger surfaces, and there is some absorbant padding in the heel of the palm that works wonders.

I can't shoot with itchy swollen hands and I doubt OP can either

Mechanix cloves are what i use to shoot. I use them for cold, but they might help a bit.
