Ever slipped and spanked your knuckles when working on your car? Hurts like a mother doesn’t it? Second only to a kick in the plums in fact, and that’s why a proper set of mechanic’s gloves are an absolute essential.
Now, one of the most famous names in manicure-savers is US firm Mechanix Wear, who have been supplying gloves to garages, industrial sites and even the US Special Forces for years now.
Basically, they’re the toughest gloves out there, the best of the best (sir yes sir) and, rather handily for us, they’ve just launched a fine selection here in the UK through the guys Oldhall Performance.
Ranging from their most famous product (The Original) and the hardcore M-Pact items shown here, right through to their new speciality gloves which are geared towards warm-weather ventilation or mechanical dexterity (meaning you can actually feel what you’re doing on the fiddlier jobs), there’s a whole range of features with these that you never knew you needed, but now you’ll never be able to live without.
We’ve never seen smartphone touchscreen-compatible mechanic’s gloves before for starters… but then this is the 21st century, the days of thumbing through the pages of Razzle on your tea break are long gone. Shame…
