Special Honors

DuPont Tychem NT480 The bright green DuPont Tychem NT480 can stand up to everything from solvents to animal fats, and should last up to three years with proper care and storage. They even have a flocked lining to keep you comfortable when working in difficult conditions. safespec.dupont.com

Black Stallion ToolHandz Hi-Vis Winter While the Black Stallion ToolHandz Hi-Vis Winter offer a strong water-resistant barrier, they're not suitable for full submersion in water. That being said, they're great for working with contained wet materials, especially when you need the increased visibility and padded knuckles. blackstallion.com

Editor's Notes

October 02, 2019:

In many jobs, waterproof work gloves are just as crucial as a quality hard hat or knee pads, so we've looked for pairs that give you the safety and protection you need. For those who require chemical resistance along with protection against liquids, we've added the Lanon U100 and Atlas 772. These make your workplace safer, or just make home cleaning and chores easier and more comfortable. We've also kept the FrogWear 8490 and Wonder Grip 318 as top choices. These bright blue options are flexible yet sturdy, budget-friendly but still effective. The latter comes in more size options but does not offer any insulation, whereas the FrogWear model does.

We've opted to add a disposable option at this time, as well, the Venom Steel Nitrile. We like their two-layer, two-tone construction that is sturdy and usable. But keep in mind that they are definitely a disposable choice that can rip, so plan to use them accordingly.
