The world's first Kevlar lined, cut-resistant performance work glove, Youngstown's General Utility lined with Kevlar is an excellent blend of hand protection, durability, and dexterity. making it an ideal glove for a wide range of rugged applications. This version comes in small, and it's also available in medium, large, X-large, and XX-large.
The Kevlar lining not only provides a layer of cut-resistance but it also greatly increases the durability of the glove. It's ideal for use with barbed wire, rigging, rebar, recycling, logging, farming, demolition, extrication, brush clearing, yard work, landscape and construction. The palm features Youngstown's signature non-slip reinforcement for increased grip and durability. The comfortable cuff with Velcro closure adds wrist support and blocks out dirt and debris. The terry cloth thumb provides a comfortable and effective way to wipe away sweat and debris. Machine washable for easy care.
All parts of this glove are lined with DuPont Kevlar--the palm, top of hand, cuff and even the side of the fingers. Kevlar fiber provides excellent cut-resistance and as a result, the palm of this model rates a Level 3 (of 5) on the ANSI/ISEA 105-2005 Cut Standard. In addition to the benefit of cut-resistance, the Kevlar backing of the materials greatly increases their overall durability.
Youngstown uses the finest man-made materials available to ensure the best possible fit, comfort and lasting durability. Each area of the glove serves a purpose in the overall fit and functionality of the gloves. The inner liner is a micro-fleece, which is soft and comfortable, and insulation. The top of hand features a textured nylon that offers great stretch to allow total freedom of hand movement.
The finger side panels also require stretch and breathability but a thinner reinforced lycra is used to ensure your fingers are unhindered in their movements. The palm materials require stability to ensure durability, and the base layer is made of a synthetic leather that will not shrink, stretch, or harden after getting wet. The cuff material is all about support, so we use a thicker neoprene that encircles the wrist and offers all day protection.Gloves Won't Slow You Down
The 3-D, ergonomic design perfectly fits the form of your hand to provide incredible dexterity and comfort throughout the work day. Traditional work gloves are created in flat, two-piece patterns and create a clumsy fit that requires the worker to remove the glove for a number of tasks. A Youngstown Glove pattern features a palm, top, separate thumb piece, and finger side panels, allowing the glove to fit so securely on your hand you'll be able to perform any number of tasks without taking the glove off.
Use a cloth tape measure on the hand you use the most, and measure from crook between your thumb and index finger straight across to the base of the pinky and then all the way around back to where you started. Based on the circumference of your palm (excluding the thumb), here's a general guideline to sizing:

Because of this, Youngstown Glove offers its unconditional guarantee: If you are not satisfied with your gloves, Youngstown Glove will replace the pair or work with you to get you into the right model.
