  • I wish I had watched this before purchasing gloves, but the gloves O bought weren't tested. Bought 2 pairs from Youngstown Glove Company (#1 in Durability, claim in videos and website), cut Resistant Titan XT and General utility plus. Used the titans over weekend with chainsaw, antivibration definitely helped over the 2 hrs of sawing compared to my previous CLC gloves.

  • I love getting a new pair of gloves....I usually leave them on a truck bed and forget them and they are lost to the highway. I usually get the cheapest ones due to this. VGO looks good, but I can get a cheap pair at Home Depot too and I usually loose them before I can wear them out as I have to remove them to do intricate work I can't do with a glove on. I also wish you could just buy right gloves as I normally wear out a few fingers on the right glove if I don't loose them first. My left usually looks new in comparison. I'm left handed so I wonder if they make the right gloves weaker than the left to sell more gloves....probably not, but it makes me wonder. gotta go, just lost my gloves.

  • 12:25 "I also tied 5 pounds to each of the sample, this will make sure that it will be 10 pounds of tension to each sample." As a quick note, It's 5 pounds of tension instead of 10. However it is still a lot more than a glove could probably handle in real life.

  • Ironclad is a surprisingly good buy for the money. Mechanix I figured would hold up a month or two maybe of regular light work at a retail place, nope, Ironclad lasted the month and then on to daily farm work and they still are holding together. The first pair had some finger hole wear issues that the second pair does not so I think that was a fluke, the only somewhat failure point so far has been the stitching on the thumb and mainly index finger and again that was present on the first pair, not this second pair I have now so it leads me to believe the first had simply been made on a monday morning which most of us can relate to. My model: Ironclad Boxhandler In summary, Ironclad: good for the money, surprisingly durable, good grip, comfortable and would buy again.

  • I stopped buying leather gloves and have switched to rubberized palm gloves from harbor freight.....$2/pr. they last longer than leather gloves when handling firewood and provide a good grip. when they eventually wear a hole.....they were only $2....break out another pair. I usually get a good month's use out of a pair......and they do get a lot of use in the woods.

Gas Monkey Garage, Mechcanix and some other brands I've never heard of that have plastic reinforcement plates etc. You should take a look. They have a small auto section and they have some automotive tools I'd love to see go through some testing. Let me know if you're interested. I'd be happy to grab an item for testing and mail it.

  • How about testing the pnut valves under the sink. Those damn things become impossible to turn without breaking, when they do turn, they rarely stop the water flow. Your test will be really hard to run because it takes a long time for the valve to age for failure... maybe gather old, used valves from a plumber buddy, i dunno.
