Most “women’s” tools leave much to be desired — passing up quality and good design for pretty colors and gimmicks. Not Mechanix, though. Their woman’s home and garden gloves look as tough as their shop gloves, they’re not even pink, and there’s not a flower to be found anywhere on ’em. They are, however, sized just right for smaller hands and feature sport-stitched webbing in the rear to provide a snug fit for slender wrists.
Mechanix says these gloves are intended for “unlimited home and garden” activities, and they look like a well-designed variant of their “Original” black mechanic’s gloves — the ones that made the brand so popular in the first place.
We’ve had pretty good luck with Mechanix gloves, and we’re please to see that they’re not jacking up the price because they are dyed a different color or say “woman’s” on them — like other manufactures seem to be fond of doing.
Street pricing starts at $16.
