Yep, that's one of my major reasons for wearing them. If I'm just popping a mile or so down the road with the trailer I won't bother, because I'm running out of pocket space for all the other odds and sods like bungee's, keys, and wallets, but otherwise I'll try and wear a pair of traditional crochet ones. At the mo, bog standard Altrura £10 a pair ones, with sufficient absorbency to wipe off sweat and snot. :?:While comfort is a factor for me, the main consideration is that when you fall off your bike, it is your hands that are first bare area of your body to hit the floor. And I don't like digging gravel out of my palms.
