To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Now, being a bit old school marine engineer, the only time I'd normally wear gloves is when dealing with hot pipes and steam valves. But, as I find myself ashore overseas now and it's winter, I needed something that allows me to keep my paws at a bearable temperature and at the same time able to grip things like handrails and steel ladders on offshore vessels when in dock.
Mostly, in my job, you only come across big fat rigger gloves and they are next to useless for anything other than pulling ropes and stopping mank when dragging chains around. Nope. I needed something a bit more tactile to use so I bought these based entirely on nothing but a hunch.
And they work perfectly for what I want. They are comfortable and fit snugly on my hands so that climbing ladders isn't a risk. They are warm enough to be okay in cold - but not I admit Arctic - conditions. The snug bit also helps me grip tools and there is enough padding to be comfortable doing it.
In terms of longevity. Well, for me they are fine. I'm an engineer that's mostly office based now but in my younger days on board a ship or offshore construction vessel these would probably last about a day or two. In a garage environment where I suspect they are aimed at, fine. These will protect your hands and allow you to do most work apart from the most fiddly with reasonable ease.
Overall, excellent value for money mechanic gloves especially when you compare these to others that seem to be priced by the milligram.
They're OK for the price. I work with some steel stock, so having some basic palm protection is necessity. Fit is perfect. Piece of steel caught/pinched the the very tip of the pinky(just the glove, not my finger:)) and when I pulled (lightly!) the stitching was ripped, seem like a weak point upon closer examination.
If you do light duty work, no heated elements / welding. Then this should serve well for two/three months.
The fit is perfect for me and these gloves are very comfortable - even in hot weather as the back of the glove is vented. They are so comfortable that I bought another pair straight away.
This, however, was a mistake. You may as well use disposable gloves at a fraction of the cost, as they will probably last as long. The finger tips in both pairs have worn away or split after a days use in each pair. Nothing extreme, just carrying, cutting, and screwing (giggidy) timber with powertools.
I will try to obtain a refund from Amazon, as I expected far more longevity from a £15+ pair of work gloves.
Well, I work as a full time mechanic. So I'm probably the best person to review these. Not to blow the end piece off my own trumpet but anyway, after two days use. Oil had seeped through, the material on the inside of the fingers is starting to show signs of wear. ( I get they won't last forever) I can see the stitching coming off on the ends of the fingers etc after heavy use.
I think using these permanently day in day out they will probably last about two weeks at best. However I'm talking about using them for my job.
They are very comfy. They can be washed. But I think I need to find something a bit more bulletproof if possible.
You get what you pay for..... so true in so many cases but these really do prove that statement correct! BRILLIANT! Well made, great fit and look the business! Been through countless pairs of cheap work gloves over the years decided to splash out on something a bit better quality and couldn't have chosen much better I don't think. Working in construction I put these to the test good and proper in last 2 months and they show no signs of failure so far. Very happy with my Mechanix Wear gloves, wish I had gone for them years ago! Fully recommend these to anyone!
Purchased based on reviews had since july used for light warehouse duties picking packing wrapping, There coming unstiched on fingers poor product waste of money . I though theses gloves would be far better and last longer ! id say these glove only usful for knitting or similar . Dont bother.
These are awful not hard wearing enough at all! Wouldn’t buy again only lasted 15 days of graft! Holes in the fingers already! Don’t buy them if our after somthing even moderately hard wearing.. I used them on a day to day basis in the haulage industry. Strapping down of load, grabbing lifting gear hooks/shackles/strops/fall arrest, nothing they shouldn’t have handled with ease! Very disappointed!
Needed some gloves to do some jobs around the house and garden and these fit the bill. They look really professional and are extremely comfortable to wear. They seem sturdy enough and no to bulky while working so they dont get in the way when fiddling with stuff.Price was reasonable cant complain
Not too sure about these. Personally not a fan of the fast fit, but I bought these to try that out. They are on The thinner side, but that gives you more dexterity so depending on the intended use for rhe glive that could be good or bad. Personally i dont think these are as good as my mpact gloves but I wear gloves for heavy duty environments.
