Mechanix Glove Review

Protect your Hands

With the colder weather approaching, it’s a good idea to start thinking about having the right gear for the cold.  For me, that means digging my hat out of the closet and buying a new Aircraft Mechanic Mechanix glovesset of work gloves.

Mechanix makes many different types of gloves, but I have found for working on aircraft, the Original .5mm High Dexterity gloves tend to be best. While these gloves will not provide a ton of protection from the cold, it does provide enough protection for most situations. The trade off is that they are extremely flexible so it doesn’t feel like your are wearing a heavy glove.
