mechanic work glovesHaving a choice is a good thing but sometimes there are situations that being confronted with “too much choice” can be overwhelming. When choosing the best mechanic gloves, you have an enormous amount of options. In order to be able to quickly decide which one to choose from many options and not compromise the quality, we have prepared a short guide on how to choose mechanic gloves. Here are the top things to consider:

Mechanic Glove Features

1. Impact Protection

When it comes to working gloves, protection is a key factor to consider. A good question that you might ask before choosing is “Am I getting the right protection?”. When working in garage it’s possible that a heavy or sharp tool can slip right on your hand without notice. And for this reason, you need to choose gloves that are anti-impact and can protect you from instant pain and more importantly from serious long-term injuries. To have maximum protection look for an option that contains either thermoplastic rubber or D30.

2. Cut Resistance

Another safety factor to consider is cut resistance. Before buying a mechanic glove make sure that the whole glove has cut protection and not only the palm.

3. Breathability

When you are working in a garage for a long time with your gloves on you may give in to temptation and take the gloves off because of hands sweltering in the gloves. This is the time when most injuries happen. Consider buying a glove that is at the same time breathable but also gives enough impact protection.  

4. Material 

There are different types of material options for mechanic gloves: synthetic leather, leather, blends of glass fibre and polyethylene, spandex, etc. Before choosing the material, think what level of durability you want and what are you protecting yourself from. High durability gloves are thick and have more padding and low durability gloves are usually thin.
