Dexterous Protection

The idea behind the Gearwrench Heavy Impact Work Gloves is simple. When using your hands is the only way to get the job done in the automotive world, the gloves you wear need to protect while providing essential dexterity and flexibility.

Gearwrench Heavy-Impact Work Gloves

Gearwrench accomplishes this by providing a number of both safety and comfortability features. The Heavy Impact Work Gloves feature anatomically shaped and articulated thermoplastic rubber impact ribs over the fingers and knuckles. These provide impact protection while allowing your hand free natural movement.

The Gearwrench Work Gloves also have a reinforced thumb saddle and index finger for extra durability. An EVA foam-padded palm gives you grip protection, and the breathable TrekDry back helps manage moisture from perspiration.

And, so that you don’t have to constantly take the gloves off every time you need to interact with a touchscreen, Gearwrench gives you synthetic leather fingers and palms. Basically, Gearwrench wants you to be able to go from gripping a torque wrench to ordering parts on your phone without slowing down.

One last feature we like is the microfiber sweat wipe on the back of the thumb. It’s subtle, but we find this feature extremely nice to have on those hot sunny days. Oh—and at the end of the shift, you can throw these straight into your washing machine.


The Gearwrench Heavy Impact Work Gloves come in three sizes: medium, large, and extra-large. They retail for $28.99, and GearWrench offers them with a 90-day limited warranty.
