    Do you love having the right tool for the job? Does that apply for gloves too? Do you find yourself handling something on the heavier side or applying so much pressure that if your hand slipped, you’d have a bruise on the back of your hand for a week? Might your working situation get a little wet or oily as well and you’d rather not loose your grip? If yes, then say hello to the Proflex 920 Gloves by Ergodyne!

    QUICK THOUGHTS
    Size/Fit: runs a little large, fingers are little roomy, cotton knit material stretches well to accommodate size and shape, conforming cuff helps keep the glove on and keeps debris out.

    Comfort: easy to use, cotton is soft and breathable, some uncomfortable rubbing on the knuckles after a long time of use

    Dexterity: good for down to about medium drill bit size but not quite enough for smaller fasteners, this may be improved by correct size selection, the foam nitrate grip is also fairly flexible

    Protection: great dorsal protection but could use some improvements especially more flexibility around the knuckles, foam nitrate not very cut or abrasion resistant (check out the 922s) but cotton knit itself seems pretty abrasion resistant, and also, as is common with cotton knit, these are not puncture resistant

    Grip: palm has foam nitrate which works great in wet or oily condition, grip is slightly above average in dry conditions

    Other Features: high visibility for palm side my may be reduced over time by grim but might be partialy restored by machine washing

    SIZE/FIT
    Overall, I think I choose a glove too big. I don’t think the sizing charts take into account the specialized fit for the cotton knit gloves which you typically want to be a little more snug, and can still be easily be taken off, whereas leather gloves need extra wiggle to get them off. I’d recommend going at one size smaller than your usual glove size.

    DORSAL PROTECTION
    This is one of my first gloves with dorsal protection, so I did not know what to expect. Overall, does well but I there are a few areas of improvement. Knuckles are a little stiff and which ever way I wear the glove, the knuckle splits don’t seem to line up with my own (but this may be due to having picked a larger size glove). Additionally, because the knuckle protection is a little stiff and connected directly to the back of the hand protection (metacarpals), when you form a fist, the back of the hand protection is pulled along when you form a fist and the inside of the glove rubs a little on the back of the hand and knuckles which can get a little uncomfortable after a while.

    The finger protectors work well and seem flexible enough as they don’t need quite the same range of motion as the knuckles. The thumb protector has a different shape and doesn’t always align well, also I wish the thumb protection also had metacarpal protection as the current protection is only the front two thumb joints. Additionally, I wish that the pinky finger metacarpal had more protection on the palm side, kind of the “karate chop” side of the hand.

    GRIP
    After trying these out I agree, the foam nitrate works great in wet conditions. If you look close at the palm you can see the little air voids which help with the grip, but eventually get a little dirty and likely to stay that way. I ran my gloves through the wash and only had minor success in cleaning the foam grip.

    ON THE JOB
    I did a few projects to give the 920s a try. The projects were a plumbing project, vacuuming and emptying my 25 lb shop vac, and went camping and pounded in some tent spokes. Although the projects weren’t all that extreme of tests, I feel that the plumbing project really brought out the best qualities of the glove which include great grip in wet conditions, and the dorsal protection for putting lots of pressure on your tools in tight spaces.
