Watson Gloves - Flextime Leather Workshop Glove
Workshop gloves can be difficult.
For anything oily I tend to opt for a disposable nitrile glove. They're great at protecting your skin from fluids, but don't last that long and offer no protection for heavier duty jobs.
I had started using old worn out mountain bike gloves as I found these offered about the right level of protection whilst still being thin enough to "feel" through.
These Flextime gloves from Watson blend the leather palm and knuckle protection from a traditional leather glove, with the flexible material outer from a MX/MTB glove.
These are now my go to favourite for the workshop and heavier jobs in the garden.
Although we've called these a workshop glove, they are equally at home in the garden. In fact The Independent newspaper recently rated them "an absolute dream" for gardening. You can read the review here.
Watson also do a Women's fit version of this glove and we've decided to offer that as well in Women's Small and Women's Medium. The Women's fit has a slightly longer finger length to palm width ratio.
We now have a winter thermal version of this glove - available here.
