Review: Which gloves are best ?



Welcome to another instalment of our reviews this month I have been reviewing the best gloves all supplied by the great guys at Active Workwear. I have worn each pair of these gloves for one week while erecting and dismantling scaffolding.

I hope you find these reviews helpful and informative please let us know in the comments below.


General Handling Gloves MP1 

We have all seen them and worn them and by far the best gloves for all scaffolding tasks. i got at least 3 to 4 days work out of the gloves before holes started appearing.

Overall very comfortable to wear and retained grip even when wet.

Price: £1.10 each

Snickers Craftsmans Gloves

The Snickers craftsman boasts unbeatable grip and uncompromising protection perfect for really tough jobs. The palm and fingers are reinforced with Grip TechT which is a durable rubber with an advanced textured surface.

When I first wore the gloves they provided great grip and felt like a second skin although scaffolding for a full shift took its toll on these high priced gloves.  Overall A great pair of gloves to look at but just didn’t cut the mustard when worn for scaffolding.

Price: £22.90 each

Blaklader Craftsmans Gloves

The Swedish firm Blaklader have created a comfortable pair of gloves that provide a decent amount of protection. The gloves are made from synthetic leather and are a slip on design.

But like the Snickers gloves they fell short when used for erecting and dismantling scaffolding.

Price: £13.68 each

 Dewalt Gel Palm Protective Gloves

Another well known brand giant Dewalt provides a well rounded protective glove but comes with a huge price tag. The glove provides a gel palm with Toughgrip Reinforced palm and fingers and comes with Velcro straps around the wrists.

When i first wore the gloves they felt like what i call “riggers gloves”  but performed well during everyday scaffolding tasks and lasted well over the review period. Saying this I can not ignore the fact that these gloves cost a small fortune and why I can only give them a 4 star rating.

Price: £25.38 each
