I first saw these gloves during the NASCAR pit crew races a few weeks ago. A newscaster was interviewing one of the tire-changers who was wearing these gloves that looked like they could win a fight with a meat grinder. Even if they never face that challenge, the gloves certainly gave the pit crew member the cool-factor during the interview.
The first thing that caught my eye was the hard-shell molded knuckle that looks like something from a death-fight match. These gloves sport the same tear-resistant materials, leather wear areas, and rubber plating as the standard M-Pact gloves. They also feature a hook-and-loop wrist fastener and a full gauntlet cuff to protect your forearm.
The Mechanix Wear M-Pact T/C Gloves sell for about $55 a set.
