Important Considerations when choosing work gloves:

  • Get the size right! Too many people are working with gloves that are too loose or too tight, either way, they don’t fit properly and may be causing irritation to your skin or worse maybe hazardous to your work.
  • The Cut of a glove = your comfort. There are two types of cuts, Clute and Gunn. These refer to the different ways that the gloves have been cut and stitched together. Clute cut gloves are usually lightweight and have seam-free palms. Gunn cut gloves use a single piece of material for the palm, index finger, and pinkie which can help improve your dexterity.
  • Gloves might have a straight thumb with a single seam, but both the keystone and wing thumb styles are commonly found in specialized work gloves. This is because they improve ergonomic fit, dexterity, and comfort.

Sizing Industrial Work Gloves

General Sizing:
To find out your glove size, measure (in inches) around your hand with a tape measure at the place indicated by the red line (just below the knuckles). You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.

Nitrile Glove Sizing:

  • Extend your hand flat.
  • With a tailor's measuring tape, wrap it around the hand just below the knuckles and fingers, but above the thumb. This will give you an inch measurement.
