Superior Glove has released an anti-impact, high-visibility, waterproof and cut-resistant glove designed for the oil & gas industry from its Clutch Gear line. The company says it has great styling, featuring dense, thermo-plastic foam rubber patches at the back of the hand to protect only in the places where impact occurs, so glove stays fully flexible. PVC SureGrip palm patches offer durable, cushioned grip in just the right places. The entire length of the thumb crotch features a tough Kevlar® patch that extends the life of the glove in the highest-wear area.

This style features a full Kevlar interlock knit lining for ASTM level-2 cut resistance; gloves withstood 630 grams of cut force during testing. Two-inch Neoprene cuffs for easy donning and extra cushioning at the wrist, and a special waterproof Enprotex liner at the centre for stay-dry comfort.
