What Our Customers Say

“Thank you for holding fast through Covid challenges, and never slacking in the product you all put together. Mechanix Wear has been with me for 10 YEARS now since I was a police cadet in college. Pat yourselves on the back because I'm speaking for all the first responders out there and other guys and gals doing dirty jobs who rely on your gloves too, but just haven't thought to write you.”
– Aaron K., EMT

“When you choose good products, and you show that you’re actually investing in the employees’ safety, they invest in themselves too.”

“I work for a big "brown" shipping company. My job involves moving as many as 1400 packages in a shift. Without gloves, your hands get very dirty very fast. I have tried other work gloves and most of them wore out within only a couple weeks. I have had these gloves for over a month, and they show no signs of wear and tear. Extremely durable!”
- G. Ramirez, Shipping & Receiving

“I am a drywall finisher and use my hands all day for work. That being said, I am very hard on gloves. But these protect my hands when I carry 60+ pounds and get covered in mud but are delicate enough I can easily pick up a screw of the floor. My first pair lasted 2 months which is twice my normal longevity. I tried a pair of ironclad gloves to see how they compared to the Mechanix gloves, and the ironclad lasted a week before a finger seam ripped! These are worth every penny and the only kind I will buy now!”
