Leather work gloves can provide you the hand protection you need whether you're hauling debris at the construction site or operating heavy machinery. They can provide you with everything from warmth during cold weather work days to comfort and protection while engaging in your daily tasks. There are leather work gloves available for just about every type of work environment. Here are some of them.
Pigskin-Lined Leather Work Gloves – Where climate conditions can bring in severe cold weather, pigskin-lined leather gloves offer you a supple layer of protection with an added layer of warmth through an internal fleece lining. These gloves are suitable for a wide range of applications from the construction industry to agricultural applications.
Cowhide leather work gloves – If you're looking for a more economical version of the pigskin-lined leather work gloves, the cowhide versions provide a more affordable alternative. Cowhide leather work gloves come in lined and unlined versions so you can pick based on your climate needs. Use these gloves for everything from lifting heavy equipment to agricultural work.
Multi-task Leather Work Gloves – If you're looking for a solution for hand protection based on a specific task, the multi-task leather work gloves can provide what you need. These gloves are available in a variety of materials such as cowhide, deer hide and goatskin. You'll find them with features like elasticized wrists for a stay-put fit and 3M Tape for high visibility. Fingerless versions work well for assembly line work. Insulated versions provide cold weather warmth. And double-leather palms give an added buffer from handling abrasive materials.
