As scarred and bruised as my knuckles are, one might think I’m a prize fighter or some sort of perpetual bar-room brawler. One would be wrong. Really, I’ve just lost more than my fair share of rounds with cars I’m working on, which is why the padded M-Pact gloves from Mechanix look so attractive. They look like they’d help take the beating when the bolt I’m wrenching finally gives way and sends my knuckles flying into the nearest metal object.
Besides all the normal Mechanix glove features, the M-pact gloves have new flexible bonded TPR (Thermo-Plastic Rubber) knuckle and finger ribs that protect the top of your hand. They also feature Lycra finger panels, and a sensitive fingertip pattern that let you “feel” what you’re doing through the glove.
You might not notice the M-Pact is doing its job until you find your knuckles are in tact after going a few rounds with a small-block Chevy. Awesome.
