In 1991, Mechanix gloves were born. Founded by James Hale and originally intended for mechanics and pit crews for the Daytona 500 and NASCAR, these gloves sparked a revolution for working hands. Thirty years later, Mechanix has expanded into industries where skilled hands go to work every day. These gloves are incredibly high-quality, making them the go-to glove for construction workers, military personnel, law enforcement, welders, mechanics, and various other trade professionals. And now, decades later, we are extremely happy to have them here at Trade Pro Outfitters!

The Original Work Gloves

Mechanix the Original work gloves

The Mechanix Original is the glove that started it all, and the one you probably know best. Tried and true for over 25 years, The Original Work Glove is built with carbon-infused touchscreen capable synthetic leather and breathable TrekDry material to create the ultimate tool for hardworking hands. The adjustable wrist closures, reinforced thumb and index finger, and flexible material make these a great multipurpose glove. With a gamut of practical uses, it is no surprise that The Original is the most recognized and most frequently worn work glove by anyone with a toolbox.

Utility Work Gloves

The Mechanix Utility Work Gloves are great for DIY projects, home improvement, maintenance and repair projects, equipment operation, landscaping, and other tasks where a breathable glove is needed. This all-purpose glove is constructed with a two-piece synthetic leather palm to eliminate material bunching, so you have better control when using hand tools. Breathable TrekDry forms to the back of your hands to help keep them cool and comfortable on those sauna-like workdays.

Specialty Grip Anti-Slip Gloves

Mechanix Specicialty Grip work gloves

The Specialty Grip Gloves help you work smarter, not harder. The palms of these gloves are constructed with anti-slip Armortex to increase friction and enhance your grip. Textured Armortex displaces liquids to reduce slippage and maintain grip with less strenuous effort. The Specialty Grip work glove also features Wide-Fit closure so you can adjust to your level of comfort. These are a great option for automotive work, maintenance and repair, manufacturing, and glass handling because of their strong gripping capabilities.

M-Pact Impact Resistant Gloves

Mechanix M-Pact Impact Resistant work gloves

The M-Pact Impact Resistant Gloves protect working hands with Thermoplastic Rubber knuckle protection that absorbs blunt force impact and meets EN 13594 impact standard. The M-Pact features D3O palm padding to dissipate high-impact energy and reduce hand fatigue as the day goes on. The M-Pact glove is their more heavy-duty work glove that is good to wear when working in construction or with heavy tools, machinery, or equipment.

Mechanix Durahide Original work gloves

Durahide Leather Gloves

The Durahide Original relieves calloused hands with Durahide performance leather when you’re in full swing. Durahide leather provides extreme abrasion resistance when operating power tools and hauling abrasive building materials. Woodworkers, carpenters, and construction workers love these gloves because they keep you protected from abrasive materials. Just like the rest of the Mechanix gloves, when the job’s done, just toss them in the wash to get them prepped for another use.

Mechanix FastFit work glove

Most of the Mechanix glove lines are also available in FastFit, which is a slip-on version with no strap and an elastic cuff so you can easily pull them on and off.

Mechanix also just launched their new line of welding gloves called Torch. These gloves are designed by welders, for welders.
