Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Workwear Reviews & Safety Equipment

They say the clothes make the man. On the jobsite, our workwear reviews aim to reveal which work clothing is most comfortable, durable, and well-equipped. Our reviews cover everything from safety glasses, work boots, workwear, and clothing. We also tackle hearing protection, Bluetooth-equipped hearing products and other safety equipment for the job site. Workwear Reviews & Safety Equipment for Tradesmen When we review Blaklader Bantam Utility Pocket Pants or Dickies Performance workwear, comfort leads the way. Durability must quickly follow, however, and we also look for features. If carpenters pants, does the hammer loop come well-stitched and reinforced? When we look at products like Radians safety glasses, do they match manufacturer claims? How comfortable do they feel? We also tend to drop them to see how easily they break or scratch. Other workwear reviews include products like Redbacks knee pads or other PPE safety equipment. One of our favorite workwear categories includes work boots. Look for in-depth reviews of many of the top brands as well.

DeWalt Protector safety glasses

DeWalt Protector Safety Glasses Review

Safety glasses. If you do any kind of projects around the house – be it woodworking, tile, or any kind of remodeling – you need a decent pair of safety glasses. Dewalt’s DPG54-1C safety glasses do several things right: they fit well, they don’t distort what comes through the lenses and they wrap around the sides for ample protection. Now, with that said, I have a very small head and they fit me just fine. For larger heads these glasses may come up a bit short and may be a tad too tight over the ears.

Ansell Cut Protection Kevlar Gloves Review

Ansell Cut Protection Kevlar Gloves Review

While gloves offer a great deal of protection on the job site, there is still the possibility that your razor knife can slice though and into you.
