The Mechanix Original is an extremely popular safety glove used by paintballers, Airsoft enthusiasts, the military, police forces and even car mechanics.
The palms of the gloves are synthetic Clarino leather and smooth with little padding, allowing the user excellent feel for tasks that require high levels of dexterity.
The suede surface of the palm adds to the flexibility.
On the reverse of the glove there is extra padding around the thumb area and the tips of the fingers.
A dual-layered knuckle reinforcement band adds extra protection and the two-way Spandex adds an element of stretch to the back of the glove.
The gloves have a rubber-moulded, reinforced and double-stitched Velcro closure that enables a firm, comfortable fit to provide confidence that the gloves will not move around on your hands.
A loop at the end of the glove is useful to grip when inserting the opposite hand into the glove.
The TrekDry system ensures that your hands breathe and reduces the likelihood of moisture build-up inside the glove.
The ‘Original’ is now 25 years old but still going strong. They are designed mainly for dexterity but also provide a high level of protection.

Fast delivery, excellent product
I bought these more because I liked the design than any specific need and was very pleased to find that they fit me excellently and are both comfortable and allow for a high degree of dexterity. The fingers are snug and let me perform quite fine tasks without removing them, and the touch sensitivity for using my phone is excellent, better than some other gloves I own that claim to allow you to operate touchscreens. The Velcro fastening on the wrists gives a nice secure fit, and while I haven't used them for any physically rigorous tasks yet they feel well made and tough as well as comfortable. As with all my orders from Military Kit they came very fast too, which is always appreciated.
Right fit, top quality and also look good on.
Just done the Go Below Underground adventure in North Wales, this was the 1st outing for the gloves. They handled traverses, zip lines, abseils and everything else thrown at them. Well worth the money.
Great, for my son in royal engineers, he’s very happy with the gloves.
Great gloves good price 👍
