Hand injuries are the second leading cause of work-related injuries, which are expected to reach three million this year. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that 70% of hand injuries occur because workers—especially construction workers—don’t wear hand protection primarily because of dexterity issues. The other 30% of workers are wearing the wrong glove for the application.

The high visibility orange RWG17 features a 2 ply, 13 gauge treated nylon outer shell with a seamless cuff to provide extra protection and comfort. The palm has a 2 ply, 3/4 dipped micro finish black latex coating that provides excellent protection from abrasion in wet or dry, cold weather conditions.
