As a theater stage technician I handle hot light fixtures, heavy weights and set pieces, and ropes and rigging, so gloves are a must — after a day at the fly rail without ’em, I’d be sorely sorry and rubbed raw. These SetWear Journeyman gloves feature tough, durable SureGrip panels on the palm and fingers, and they look like they’d do the trick.
Everyone at work wears SetWear gear, which seems to be a staple in theaters and on movie sets alike, and I think these gloves are reasonable at $27, if they hold up to the wear and tear of an average workday. But I’ll throw this one out to you guys: How many of you handle rope on a daily basis, hemp or synthetic? What kind of gloves do you use? Let us know in comments.
