yeah... chalk is pretty cheap... I recommend it. Gloves will just reduce your grip strength. Wrist straps are also another route to try.

You can get 8 2oz. bars for $12.95 at prowriststraps.com or 1 bar for $1.95. You can also get high quality wrist straps ascheap as $8, but they won't help grip strength as much as chalk.

For this threads sake, for the past week I didn't wear gloves. I was able to grip the bar better. I felt a stronger connection. The only negative is that my palms are a little beat up now. This is easily overlooked tho. The outcome is I will never wear gloves again. Better grip without.

Gloves are going to change the width of the bar in your hands which will force you to squeeze harder to hold one, which will increase your grip strength over time. I don't think using the hardbinger leather gloves are going to make a big difference in strength, but if your using some work gloves that makes a noticeable difference. Since I lift in a garage I have used some different gloves in the winter to keep my hands from freezing to the bar and they all taxed my grip more than just lifting normal. I usually only wore the gloves for my warm up sets which are all preformed with a double overhand grip, but for your max sets I wouldnt think gloves would be to beneficial.

Deadlifts are an exercise that works the full body, with an exception to lifts that aren't utilized to full potential like the chest; however, with this in mind each muscle group should progress in the deadlift. With this in mind, IMO you should avoid hand straps and just use chalk and develop your grip in proportion to your deadlift.

Grip strength is a significant part of a deadlift, it also can be categorized as functional strength seeing it has potential carryover into the real world. Deadlift strength is about strengthening the entire body and growing as a whole, not picking out your favorite bodypart and abandoning the ones that aren't enhancing in their ability to generate more force.
With this in mind, the proper approach would be strengthening the grip by utilization of the grip strength in specialized grip movements.
