This is the second pair of Mechanix gloves we have been asked to use and review. Read the first review on the Mechanix Wear Leather Extrication Gloves HERE.
Here is part of the ArmorCore Glove description right on the Mechanix site: For use by fire, safety and rescue professionals, this super-duty glove represents the ultimate combination of advanced protective technology and highest quality materials. Our proprietary cut and puncture resistant fabric lines the palm side of the glove and is reinforced with genuine goatskin leather in high wear and gripping areas. The top of the hand is protected by a Kevlar® outer shell as well as TPR knuckle and full-length finger protection. Combined with reflective materials throughout the top of hand and fingertips, this glove has it all.
- Dexterity and grip
- Excellent knuckle protection
- Wrist cuff to prevent debris from getting into glove
- No loss of function when wet
- No bloodborne pathogens protection
- No chemical protection
- Not waterproof
- Not for structural firefighting
These gloves have been wet, cold, muddy, and banged up pretty good at several extrication training over the last few months. The only noticeable wear is on the palm side where the leather is not present.
Pass it on!
