Let’s pretend for a minute that you are Hobart. You make fine welding equipment as well as some great safety gear-like gloves. For years you’ve watched other companies take multi-purpose gloves and make a killing. What do you do? Well, Hobart decided to enter the ring themselves with the mantra “more is more.” They’re now rocking three new sets of gloves including multi-use (Mechanics gloves). This is the newest multi-pack of Hobart gloves for around $23.
The pack contains two pairs of Welding Gloves and one pair of the Work/Multi-Use gloves. We don’t know much about them yet, but as soon as we can get a set in the shop we’ll start the torture testing all gloves seem to get around here. We’re excited to see how they hold up against other work gloves like Mechanix.
They’re also coming out with a new set of heavier welding gloves that feature flame-retardant cotton fleece and canvas duck cuffs; plus they’re sewn using Kevlar thread. We’ve had a few pair of Hobart welding gloves in the shop for years — they’re Chuck’s favorite — so we’re stoked to get our hands on these as well.
The Value Pack retails for $22.99, which breaks down to a little over $7.50 per pair. Hobart says the packs are shipping very soon, so you will be seeing them on the racks at the local farm/ranch or hardware store in the very near future. If nothing else it’s another solid alternative to cheap no-name gloves.
