They will be able to help you make your choice and tell you a little bit about the different brands.
Looking At Kevlar Gloves
Kevlar is actually the registered trademark of a para-aramid synthetic fiber. It is incredibly tough and durable and was first used commercially in the 70’s in racing tires, as a replacement for steel. It was developed in 1965 by DuPont, an American chemical company.
It has a wide array of applications and is used in a great deal of sporting equipment – bicycle tires, body armor, racing sails and, of course, gloves.
Kevlar provides perfect strength, durability and flexibility for sportsman, which is why gloves made out of this material are so popular amongst sports people.
A really good brand to consider, especially for sports people, is Grandoe gloves. This company is especially popular for its production of gloves for ski enthusiasts or snowboarders.
They have a specific range of gloves for skiers, aptly called “Ski”, but their Genesis range is also popular amongst snowboarders and other snow sports. For women, they have a luxurious handwear range called Ciré.
The Ed Viesturs collection is for the ‘high altitude adventurer’. These are great gloves for mountain climbers, bikers or hikers.
You can also design your own custom glove which is one of the things the company is very well known for. This is known as the Grandoe V.I.P. Service with the V.I.P. GloveBuilder, which can actually be accessed and used online at the company’s official website.
For sports people, especially those who enjoy snow sports and sporting in the rain, you need waterproof gloves to ensure you can have an enjoyable time doing what you love. If your hands get wet and cold it will soon take its toll, and you won’t be able to spend as much time outdoors as you would like. Kevlar is a great material in this respect.
Stauffer Glove And Safety
Stauffer Glove and Safety have been involved in the ‘personal protective’ equipment industry for over 100 years, which makes them obviously a good brand to consider when looking for decent or professional gloves. They have been providing safety equipment to the safety industry since the company began.
They are especially good in providing gloves for the workplace. Hand injuries are a common problem in many different kinds of work, such as manufacturing, construction, or even many types of art. People looking for wholesale work gloves should look here as well. Having the right glove to protect your hand not only from cuts but also from hand disorders such as carpal-tunnel syndrome is paramount.
At their website they have an online survey to help you decide on the right kind of glove to suit your work. Kevlar is well known and usually very good, but there may be other types of gloves that will suit you.
So, for the professional worksman or the sportsman, or anything inbetween, the best and one of the most durable, flexible, and long-lasting gloves you should go for are Kevlar.
