When looking for the best mechanics gloves on the market, keep in mind that you need something that is durable, comfortable and allows you the sensitivity needed to feel and control smaller objects.

  • Quality stitching must be present in order to uphold the dexterity of the glove.

  • The fit needs to be snug to allow for optimal sensitivity.

  • Design should allow for personal preference of finger use, reinforcing the knuckles in the case of removing the tips of the glove.

Construction work requires keeping your hands safe from debris while still allowing you the comfort and sensitivity needed to perform skilled work with your hands.

  • A light-weight, breathable material is needed to ensure your hands are sweating during a hard day’s work in the sun.

  • If you’re wearing goggles or protective glasses, a terry cloth-covered thumb allows you to wick away sweat and dust off your lenses instead of dirtying up your shirt and displacing your protective wear.

The Pugs gear work gloves are the perfect construction glove with their breathable spandex fabric for hot days, reinforced foam palm pad for protection and durability and a terry cloth thumb for cleaning off your eye gear.
