A few years ago Mechanix added the M-pact padded glove to their always-great-looking lineup of gloves.  Now they’re making another go of it with the Impact Pro — it sports the same color scheme and rubber styling as the original M-pact, plus reinforced fingertips and breathable palms that the glove doctors at Mechanix say will give you less sweaty-palm syndrome while at the same time providing a better grip on anything in your grasp.

Figure on around $15 to $20 for a pair — which means if you pick some up and they feel good, you can have ’em for about the same price as any other set of mechanics gloves.

  1. Just don’t ever work with sharp wood or metal with these. They will slice open so easily and a (relatively) expensive pair of gloves is ruined.

    Honestly, I’d rather use Harbor Freight’s gloves (and do on a daily basis) than anything from Mechanix. These things have a tendency to just fall apart at the seams likely due to shoddy workmanship.
    My favs are the “anti-vibration” fingerless gloves and the blue and black mechanix knock-offs.

    “Always great looking gloves”, always a good reason to buy a pair of work gloves

    Oh GOOD. Another comment I was about to write that was actually in support of Mechanix gloves DELETED BY TOOLMONGER’S STUPID AUTO REFRESH!!!!

    Screw it. I’m deleting my bookmark and only reading http://www.toolsofthetrade.net/

    Who cares if it’s outdated! It’s better than this!

    I have a pair of regular Mechanix gloves that are ruined by oil. You would think that automotive gloves would have some type of resistance to oil. Now every time I try to use them my hands are soiled with oil. I’ll stick to the cheap rubber gloves.
