Work gloves

HyFlex 11-644 gloves combine a proprietary blend of high-performance polyethylene-engineered yarn with a gray polyurethane palm coating to provide ANSI Level 2 cut protection and Level 5 abrasion protection. This cut-protection technology ensures a high level of dexterity and flexibility, and promotes longer wear. The gloves are soft and cool on the skin for all-day comfort.

Glove clip

The Utility Guard clip uses a belt clip instead of a clamp to attach to the user. The clip’s design keeps gloves closer to the worker for easy retrieval and reduces sway. Custom safety slogans, logos and contact information can be imprinted on the clip, which is proudly made in the United States.
