New Heavy-Impact Work Gloves from GEARWRENCH Help Mechanics Handle the Toughest Jobs

SPARKS, Md., Nov. 4, 2020 -- GEARWRENCH has always made top-of-the-line tools that go in the hands of skilled technicians. Now, through a partnership with Mechanix Wear Gloves, new GEARWRENCH Heavy Impact Work Gloves provide those same hands with maximum protection.

"Automotive and industrial techs put their hands in harm's way on a daily basis, but that's because using their hands is the only way to get the job done," said Paul Steinweg, product manager for GEARWRENCH. "These gloves protect their hands while providing essential dexterity and flexibility."

Heavy Impact Work Gloves from GEARWRENCH feature anatomically shaped and articulated thermoplastic rubber (TPR) impact ribs over the fingers and knuckles that deliver unequalled protection while offering exceptional flexibility. The thumb saddle and index finger are reinforced for extra durability, while EVA foam palm padding inside and breathable TrekDry® backs keep users comfortable all day.

Knowing techs love tech, these gloves feature touchscreen-capable synthetic leather fingers and palms so users can go from gripping a torque wrench to ordering a part on their phone without stopping. At the end of the day, the gloves are machine washable for easy maintenance. 

GEARWRENCH Heavy Impact Work Gloves are available in three sizes: medium (86986), large (86987) and extra large (86988). For more information, visit
